Black Red (910)

Guerlain Black Red (910) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy red with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied fairly evenly but didn’t apply as well to the inner area of my lips and seemed to have a bit of pilling. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and more velvety in its glide.

It wore well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly hydrating, but the brand made a mega wear-time claim of 16-hours so it… did poorly as result.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.12 oz. - $283.33 Per Ounce

The new finish is described as a "velvet matte" with "exceptional softness, color depth" and is "long-lasting" with "16-hour comfort and wear." The color coverage is supposed to be "highly pigmented" and will "glide on effortlessly."

The majority of the shades available were highly pigmented, as marketed, with even, smooth coverage that wasn't prone to emphasizing lip texture, lines, or imperfections. The texture was smooth, moderately dense but not thick, so they felt lightweight on (but not clingy). Most of the shades--at the time of review--are more mid-depth or deeper, but the lightest shades I tested were a little prone to settling into my lip lines over time.

The big "downside" is that they don't wear anywhere near 16 hours; that would be a tall ask for any lipstick formula, let alone a traditional, bullet formula like this one. They have longer wear than average with many shades achieving six hours of solid wear with slight stains left behind. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating overall.

They hare a floral scent that was noticeable applied to the lips, and I had slight taste of floral perfume when eating/drinking.

Please note, Rouge Gs are now refillable, so the price reflects the cost of the lipstick itself but not the lipstick holder (which is $37.50 and available in different designs). I personally keep mine with the refill-only cap, which is suitable for being kept at home but would not be ideal for someone who keeps it in their bag or travels frequently.

Dusty Brown (940)

Guerlain Dusty Brown (940) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy-brown with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, somewhat buildable color coverage that applied evenly for the most part but did not adhere quite as well to the inner area of my lips.

The texture was velvety, lightly dense but not too firm, and comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted well for five and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing, but it didn’t come close to the 16-hour wear marketed.

Wow…well that’s a bit of a shock that two Guerlain lipsticks did so poorly. Wasn’t expecting that. Good thing I have MAC Media and Diva, plus so many other dark, vampy lipsticks for fall. I’d love to wear them, but with mask mandates still in place for both public transportation, Uber/Lyft/Yellow Cab, plus medical offices and centers, I’ll have to use my two deep Sephora Cream Lip Stain liquid lipsticks instead.

Finally – *Finally* I see some Guerlain lipstick colors I can get down with (the Dusty Brown in particular) and they don’t rate well. My search for the perfect color so I can finally buy one of those gorgeous bullets continues…

Usually Guerlain’s lipsticks are much better quality than this, this is a shame for the price as the shades are beautiful. Thank goodness for the dupe list (once again!)

I like both, and have dupes for both. I honestly can’t imagine how many lipsticks I’d have if there wasn’t a list of dupes here. I love the dupe list!
I don’t understand why brands claim 16 hour wear time for lipsticks. Maybe they last that long if we sit still, don’t drink, eat, talk and don’t even move our lips, something that could work for some performance art, I guess, but not for real life.
