Guerlain Blush Beige & Brick Pink Rouge G Velvet Lipsticks Opinions & Samples

Blush Beige (530)

Guerlain Blush Beige (530) Rouge G Luxurious velvet lipstick ($ 34.00 for 0.12 oz.) Is a deep pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque paint coverage in a single layer that applied smoothly and comfortably over my lips without puffing.

The texture was light, velvety and slightly creamy without being “wet” or slippery. It smoothed out my lip lines, but it didn’t noticeably set itself in my lip lines. It lasted well for five hours (out of 16 hours marketed!) And felt slightly moisturizing over time.

The new finish is described as “velvet matt” with “exceptional softness, depth of color” and is “long-lasting” with “16-hour comfort and wearing time”. The color coverage should be “highly pigmented” and “slide easily”.

Most of the shades available were highly pigmented as marketed with an even, smooth coverage that didn’t tend to emphasize lip texture, lines, or imperfections. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, but not thick, so it felt light to the touch (but not clingy). Most shades – at the time of review – are more like medium or deep, but the lightest shades I tested tended to stick to my lip lines over time.

The big “downside” is that they don’t wear nearly 16 hours; that would be a big question for any lipstick formula, let alone a traditional spherical formula like this one. They have a longer-than-average shelf life, with many shades reaching a fixed six-hour lifespan with slight stains left behind. The formula was comfortable to wear and slightly moisturizing overall.

They have a floral scent that was noticeable on the lips and I had a slight floral scent while eating / drinking.

Please note that Rouge Gs are now refillable, so the price will reflect the cost of the lipstick itself, but not the lipstick holder (which costs $ 37.50 and comes in a variety of designs). Personally, I keep mine with the refill cap, which is great for home storage but not ideal for someone who carries it in their pocket or who travels frequently.

Brick Red (555)

Guerlain Brick Red (555) Rouge G Luxurious velvet lipstick ($ 34.00 for 0.12 oz.) Is a deep orange red with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was light, smooth, and velvety to the touch, which helped it be applied evenly and kept it from emphasizing my lip texture. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that lasted for six hours (out of 16 hours marketed!)
