Alongside the Rouge G in Rouge Parade, and topcoat for nails in L’Oiseau de Feau, Guerlain have also released matching Gloss d’Enfers for Christmas. The Gloss d’Enfers are hugely pigmented glosses, almost liquid lipsticks traditionally, so it’s interesting to see a clear gloss in the formulation too,
Here you can see that Rouge Parade is an opaque bright fire-engine red, and L’Oiseau de Feu is clear gloss with a shimmering golden micro-sparkle whirled within. L’Oiseau de Feu, like its namesake nail polish is intended for use as a top-coat for coloured lipsticks.
However, on swatching, we can see that the golden shimmer (being rather sparse, and very, very micro) of L’Oiseau is … disappointing, so I tried it from another angle:
I couldn’t see it on my lips either, so I gave up trying to photograph it. A shame really, as it really was a clever way to incorporate both the yellow gold and lacquered red theme of the Coque D’or collection into the glosses,
Rouge Parade is a nice copy of the same Rouge G shade in gloss format, however. If the Rouge G doesn’t float your boat (what are you, dead?) then the Gloss d’Enfer, being lighter (and, of course, somewhat cheaper), might do the trick …
The Fine Print: Products featured this week are a mixture of stuff I’ve bought myself, and items I was sent by the PR.
