Rust Red (515)

Gucci Beauty Rust Red (515) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a lightly glossy sheen. It wasn’t as shiny as most shades in the formula.

It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one layer, which could be built up to medium coverage if desired. The lipstick felt smooth, emollient but not overly slippery, and seemed to soften my lip lines for the most part. This shade wore well for three hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$42.00/0.06 oz. - $700.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to live between "sheer and satin lipstick[s]" with "long-lasting" hydration with "shine" that wears for "four hours." They had a more gel-like consistency to me; denser and firm in the tube, but they glided on readily and had a glossy, wet-looking shine that was almost balm-like without being as slippery as a true balm consistency.

The pigmentation was sheer, as marketed, and most shades were somewhat buildable to more semi-sheer to medium coverage so those with more pigmented natural lip color may still find they show up enough. The colors applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with only a few shades settling into my lip lines noticeably.

They were comfortable to wear over the two to four hours they lasted for, and the formula felt hydrating over time. It is a heavily-scented floral formula that had a perfume-like taste to me when I wore them.

Margaret Ruby (516)

Gucci Beauty Margaret Ruby (516) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up to medium coverage.

The texture was smooth, lightweight, and more gel-like, so it glided readily across my lips but didn’t feel too slippery during wear. It lasted nicely for three and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

Jody Wild Mauve (714)

Gucci Beauty Jody Wild Mauve (714) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a dark, purplish-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied fairly evenly but was more prone to settling into my lip lines, which was slightly noticeable in person due to how dark it appeared in those lines.

The texture was lightweight, more like a gel-cream hybrid, which helped it apply comfortable across my lips in a single layer. It stayed on well for four hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

I have very mixed feelings about these lipsticks – on one hand I like the colours – especially Rust Red, but on the other I don’t like the sheerness to them. I think they would not last very long on my lips as they just don’t seem pigmented enough for my liking.
