Flaming Red (823)

Guerlain Flaming Red (823) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip ColorGuerlain Flaming Red (823) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color ($58.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smattering of gold micro-glitter. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The texture was lightweight, emollient and slightly creamy without feeling too wet or too slippery on the lips with just a bit of texture from the micro-glitter in the bullet itself. The lipstick sat well on the lips and smoothed out a lot of my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and was nicely hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.12 oz. - $483.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge G formula is supposed to be hydrating with a luminous finish. Long-time readers will know it has been a favorite of mine forever! The part that I find is more unique to Rouge Gs is the finish; there’s a fine pearl that gives it a glossier, shinier sheen that isn’t too slippery. The formula is typically comfortable to wear, nicely hydrating, and lasts four to six hours. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Glamorous Cherry (822)

Guerlain Glamorous Cherry (822) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip ColorGuerlain Glamorous Cherry (822) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color ($58.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium pinky red with cool, blue undertones and barely-there gold sparkle. The pigmentation was almost full coverage in a single stroke, but there was a smidgen of translucency throughout the shade. The color went on evenly, though, and the finish seemed to have a higher shine than most Rouge Gs. It had a creamy texture that was thicker compared to Flaming Red but not actually heavy or slippery on the lips. It wore well for five hours and left a slight stain behind.

Ooooh, Glamorous Cherry looks superb!

But these retail for $90 here so I will unfortunately have to pass… (mind you, I paid almost that for Gems back in the day…)

I love a red-orange shimmer — one of my favorite lipstick colors of all time! I notice that none of the dupes listed have as much shimmer as the Guerlain Flaming Red.

I love the little gold flecks in Flaming Red! Glamorous Cherry is also very beautiful. I just love the packaging on these.

These are so gorgeous, but I hate the packaging which is why I never buy Rouge G’s. Waaaay too bulky!

These are beautiful! If I didn’t already have a bunch of reds I really love and need to use up, I might have considered getting Flaming Red. Maybe next year…

Red Necessity is one of my very favourite lipsticks but the price of Glamorous Cherry ($61 here) is just too steep for me. I think I’ll check out the Estee Lauder “dupe” to see how close it is to Red Necessity.

Wow.

[no more reds … no more reds … no more reds …]

Although … I have “own one Guerlain lipstick” on my bucket list …

[sigh]

Flaming Red is such a perfect holiday color!I love it.Glamorous Cherry is lovely also but the other shades undertone is my favorite when it comes to reds!
