Anyone who knows me knows I love me a Guerlain Rouge G or three. Or four. Every time I get asked what my favourite lipsticks are, the Guerlain Rouge G’s are always in the top five – depending on what I’ve been wearing in the previous weeks, that is! I love the funky-futuristic packaging, the shades and most of all, I love the formula. I also like the fact that they allegedly make an effective mini-weapon when launched at someone’s head*. I was therefore delighted to see that Guerlain were introducing another Rouge G with their Christmas collection, and ecstatic when I discovered that it was red … Say hello to Gardner:
A soft “brick” red, Gardner is definitely on the warm side, plus there’s a healthy dose of golden shimmer in the formula that you can see better here:
Check the reflection to see the shimmer.
I couldn’t keep Gardner away from the camera:
It’s a gorgeous shade, and I couldn’t wait to wear it, the swatch pulls a little orange on the hand, but as my skin runs a little warm, that’s no bad thing:
It’s the usual glossy satin formula, that, as always from Guerlain, melds with the lips rather than sits on them in a greasy layer like some high end formulas.
Definitely a shade I’m going to get a heap of wear out of this autumn.
