Guerlain #777 is a very warm-toned, medium gold with a glitter finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $33.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Guerlain #777 Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color (2018) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm gold micro-sparkle and a yellow-tinted base. It is listed as a top coat shade (though it can also be worn alone), so the lack of coverage wasn't unexpected. I wish there was less of a base color and more sparkle, as I felt that the yellowish base was somewhat streaky and rather prone to pulling into my lip lines (which I find very uncharacteristic of a Rouge G). There was good, even dispersion of the shimmer, and I did not feel any grittiness in the tube durin gapplication, but I could feel a very subtle texture on my lips while worn. It lasted for three and a half hours on me and was somewhat hydrating.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
For this exceptional lipstick, Guerlain has sealed intense colour and luscious lip care into a jewel formula. Enriched with plant-based polymers and silver microcrystals with a reflective power, this exceptional formula beautifully enhances lips, cloaking them in intense and luminous long-lasting colour. Jojoba and mango butter help to nourish lips, offering them instant and lasting comfort. Hyaluronic acid and gugul resin help to smooth and plump up lips. The sweet, enveloping scent of a vanilla “floriental” leaves its incomparable mark on Rouge G de Guerlain. Top notes sparkle with a lemon, orange and bergamot accord. The rose and iris heart exudes sweetness. The vanilla and tonka bean drydown gives Rouge G all of its intensity.
