Looking for a holiday treat? Then Guerlain has you covered.
Okay, so lipstick isn’t at the top of my wish list, but it is still an item that I love getting since you really can never have enough of them. Although red usually isn’t my go to, I do like sporting it during the holidays since it’s so festive and season appropriate.
If you are looking for a real treat, then I know you’ll absolutely love what Guerlain has in store the season.
As part of their Golden Bee collection, the French luxury beauty and skincare brand has released two new Rouge G cases in their line up, both of which feature rhinestones on them. I’m actually quite new to this lipstick line and the way it works is you pick out the colour and formula you want and then you choose the case separate. All the cases are super bougie and actually open up to reveal a mirror for handy touch ups.
Now I will say that is the fanciest lipstick in my collection. I received the Golden Ruby case, which features gold and red rhinestones and is really a show stopping piece (you’ll want to carry this around everywhere and whip it out for touchups, whether you need them or not!). They also have another case which features gold and silver rhinestones, which is just as stunning.
To go alongside these cases, the brand has also released two news shades in their Rouge G collection. There is a holiday red and a woody pink shade, both of which will pair nicely with your most sparkly dress (whether you’re celebrating with someone you live with or on Zoom this season).
I received the red, No. 32 matte, which is an orange-undertone red that screams holiday cheer. I actually really like the formula of this lipstick since it is a matte finish and stayed on the lips relatively well with no touch ups (even with a mask covering it). This is the kind of lipstick that pairs so nicely with a dramatic cat eye, a golden shimmery look, or even something more dramatic. Seriously, it may just be my new most perfect red.
Now when it comes to matte lipsticks, they usually gravitate towards a more dry formula, however, this was not the case with these. These lipsticks contain hyaluronic acid to hydrate, smooth, and plump lips, as well as black seed oil for additional hydration. It’s a comfortable wear and after a while, you won’t even notice you’re wearing it. Best part is that I found it stuck in place; I didn’t find the formula to move around, which is one of the reasons I don’t typically wear reds since they end up everywhere.
Now when it comes to these lipsticks, the case does sell separately. The lipsticks are C$40 each and the casing is C$42 (at least in this collection; there are more affordable ones as well). There is also have another limited-edition Rouge G Prestige Edition case which retails for a whopping C$345 (yes, you read that right). Honestly though, I really love the case I got and it’s definitely a real treat for this holiday season.
If red isn’t your thing, Guerlain offers up a variety of different shades in their Rouge G line, including a lip balm, which I’m sure will get a ton of wear (who doesn’t want a bougie lip balm?).
Have you tried the Guerlain Rouge G lipsticks?
