this is the Rouge G lipstick by Guerlain.
they come in a heavy and beautiful metal packaging. that's what Guerlain says about them:
"A jewel lipstick compact with a white gold shimmer designed by Lorenz Bäumer, the young and talented jeweller in Place Vendôme. A horizontal design with feminine curves that houses a secret: a mirror automatically appears when the compact is opened. The lipstick has a pure elegant, contemporary design, and closes magnetically. This exceptional object boasts a comprehensive, premium formula containing a star ingredient: ruby powder, which acts as an optical whitener to bring out the colour and shine of the shades. The blend of natural active ingredients (Tiger Grass, wild mango butter, Gugul resin, used in Ayurvedic medicine) complete the formula to plump up, smooth and bring moisture and softness to your lips. Available in 25 shades."
i have shade #2 Gardenia, a nudey peach shade with no shimmer to it. it has a creamy and moisturising texture and is very opaque, one coat will be enough to colour your lips. it doesn't emphasize lip lines and gives a smooth shiny finish. longevity is amazing with 5-6 hours.
the price point is quite hefty at 39€.
only what will i do with this stunning compact if i have finished the lipstick? it's too beautiful to be thrown into the dark drawer... it's too bad that they don't do refills for it.
