Guerlain #96 is a very warm-toned, medium-dark pink with a luminous finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $33.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Guerlain #96 Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color (2018) ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though it wasn't quite opaque (and couldn't be built up to full coverage either). The lipstick had a lightweight, moderately emollient texture that was comfortable to apply and to wear, but it wasn't so slippery that it sank noticeably into my lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.
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.
