Guerlain #17 Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color (2018)Guerlain #17 Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color (2018) ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. There was barely-there pearl from what I could tell, but in person, it just looked like a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had a lightweight, emollient consistency that felt comfortable as it applied in a fluid stroke, but there was noticeable slip when on, which I think was the reason why there was a bit of color in my deeper lip lines. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn't quite full coverage, that lasted nicely for four and a half hours on me but felt quite moisturizing while worn.
