Ruby Red (880)

Guerlain Ruby Red (880) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip texture.

The texture felt smooth, more velvety and lightweight (but not clingy!), which helped it feel comfortable while being longer-wearing. It stayed on nicely for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating. The only issue is the wear time claimed was 16 hours (sigh!).

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.

Fire Orange (885)

Guerlain Fire Orange (885) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, orange-red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, more velvety consistency that was dense but not overly firm, so it glided across my lips comfortably.

It wore well for five and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, but it did not achieve the stupidly long, 16-hour wear time marketed.
