Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G Lipstick Review & Swatches

Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick Rose Grenat

Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G Lipstick is one of two new, limited edition Rouge G Lipsticks that launched for Summer 2014 in special packaging.

As you can see from my photos Guerlain matched up the shade of the outer tube with the lipstick inside. Typically Rouge G Lipstick comes housed in a gold case and this does in fact have gold accents but the a majority of the outer casing is a reddish pink. It’s kinda cute….although not very Guerlain I fear! But I think I kind of like Guerlain being fun for once and not all “I’m a serious makeup”.

What do you think?

Let’s take a peek at Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G Lipstick and see the shade inside the fun, cute packaging!

Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G Lipstick is dubbed as a red pink but more of a subtle cooler fuchsia. I say subtle because lord knows I’ve run into some seriously neon shades of fuchsia and Rose Grenat isn’t one. This shade is very wearable and although playful it still packs a rich color pay off with full opacity on a single application and a nice sheen finish!

It has a creamy texture with an easy glide on lips and absolutely no sparkle or shimmer in the finish. It almost feels like a glossy texture as you apply but sets to a smoother, hydrating satin. It does taste and smell like Guerlain’s traditional violet fragrance!

The casing is limited edition for Summer (as is the shade). It sports the same great flip out full size mirror the original Rouge G does which is a great feature if you’re one for whipping out and touching up on the go. I think really hardcore fans might disagree that the casing isn’t very “Guerlain” but I kinda like that I can the color mimics the shade inside especially if you have a few shades that all have the same exact gold casing!

    You said “Typically Rouge G Lipstick comes housed in a gold case” but the typical Rouge G lipsticks do not come in a gold casing, unless it is white gold but that seems very pricey to me. I think gold looks tacky and there are so many good products out there that I can select on pacaging. If it has a hint of gold (like Chanel glossimers) it is a no no for me.

    I love the packaging. When you have 20,000 lipsticks in a drawer (slight exaggeration), it’s frustrating to have to pop the top on a dozen of them just to find the color you want! I generally end up grabbing a gloss or a product like Stila liquid lipstick because I can see what color it is without opening it. So the new Guerlain packaging is a winner for me.
