Rouge G de Guerlain Pictures

At last I have in my hands Guerlain's new lipstick Rouge G. My pictures do not do it justice. My long ago photography class lessons have been forgotten I guess, as I just couldn't get a great shot.

Suffice to say that Rouge G is Stunning with a capital S. It's a work of art.

The case was designed by a top Parisian jeweler, and Guerlain's creative director wanted it to be "a new mysterious beauty icon that united the qualities of a powder case, a jewel and the most precious lipstick".

You will never look so chic as when you bring this out of your handbag. The compact has two mirrors inside and a major clasp that closes the case. The finish is a mirror shine on the outside. So shiny, that I worry it will get scratched in my bag. The only thing missing here is a velvet pouch to hold the lipstick like Guerlain's eyeshadows. I am sure, however, I can find something that will work.

The colors shown are Gabrielle- a pale pink with a bit of shimmer, Guerlainade- the perfect nude. It has a tiny, tiny hint of peach, and Gil - a medium orange/coral shimmer. ( All the names begin with G)
These are highly creamy, last well and are very soft on the lips. Like butter.

These may come with a higher price than most lipsticks, but I say every woman needs something this beautiful.

On April 24th & 35th Bergdorfs is having their gift card event. 25.00 off 100.00 purchase. A great time to buy any Guerlain, and also on those days they are offering free engraving on the Rouge G. ( Fragrance bottles too). They will ship in US, call Jason at (800) 218-4918 ext. 2734

I think a personalized engraving on these is a great idea. Many live far from NYC, but any jeweler should be able to do the same for you as well.

Buy at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorfs, and Saks
$ 45.00
