Guerlain Rouge G 41 Gipsy Jewel Lipstick Compact Swatches and Review

When I go on vacation, I am fortunate to be able to visit a Guerlain counter. I have been introduced to their skincare and fell madly in love as it transformed my face. Skincare as good as it's claims. And then I met the lipsticks. When I wear a Guerlain lipstick, I feel that I am wearing absolute perfection. They are so comfortable and yet long wearing at the same time. The lipstick I'm going to tell you about today is one of the Rouge G formula.

Number 41 Gipsy Rouge G Guerlain Jewel lipstick compact could be called my perfect lipstick. The color is the perfect orange coral color. But first, let's talk about the compact. It is a relatively new design, closing by a magnatized closure. It is silver and shiney. Let's oooo and ahhhh for just a moment.

It looks pretty cool. The men in my house are fascinated by the workings of the device. Men have to figure out all the mechanical things, even if it's a lipstick. So while it looks cool on the outside, it's even better when you slide the tube out of the cover. The cover opens into two mirrors! Sheer perfection!!

I wear all colors of lipstick but this particular coral color is perfect for me. I think it's the type of color that any skintone and any age could wear. It has a very faint hint of shimmer that isn't a frost but just provides a juicy wet look when worn. I have a hand swatch of it next to Mac Blogger's Obsession Lipglass Caqui to show the layering potential of these two fabulous items.

But back to Gipsy, how about some lip swatches?

Yeah, it was a case of love at first sight. I purchased this at Nordstrom, but I know you can also purchase at some Dillard's stores, as well as Neiman Marcus. With quality and such an awesome case comes a bit of a price. These retail for $47 in the United States, but if you're asking me, they are worth every penny. Nothing wears quite like a Guerlain lipstick.

On my next trip, if I can get past the lipsticks, I'll have to investigate the eye products. I'm open to suggestions. :)

  2. I don't know about you, but every single lipstick color featured on your blog looks really good on you! You rock orange, pink, heck even purple so well. Although I like the packaging and shade, I still think these cost too much for lipsticks. Too steep for me.

  3. thanks, Kristie. I bought two of the G's and two other lipsticks...I guess it's the good weather of vacation and I just lost my brain. :) Plus, the lipsticks just feel so good on. They are so rich and smooth and lightweight on. Truly an indulgent purchase that I'll be made to answer for when we get home tomorrow. I need to run to the bill before the husband sees it. :)))))
