Guerlain Rouge de G Lipstick 22 ‘Greta’ & Lip Pencil in ‘Rouge Cassis’ 23

I really enjoy this lipstick.  When I haven’t worn a red lipstick in a while, this is the one that smiles at me from my collection and persuades me to have a red-lipstick-with-winged-eyeliner day.  The lipstick itself is very high quality.  Richly pigmented, delicately scented, moisturising and applies evenly.  The colour in Greta is a gorgeous red – not too blue, not too orange – so as close to a true red as you’re likely to get.  The packaging is delightfully decadent and practical, as the flip out mirror allows you to touch up anywhere in an elegant fashion.  I do wish that Guerlain sold refills though.  The packaging feels wasteful to simply throw away.

The Guerlain Lip Liner in Rouge Cassis matches almost perfectly (perhaps it has a little more pink in it than the lipstick itself, but not much) and keeps the lipstick from feathering.  I’m generally not a huge lip liner fan, as I like my lipsticks to fade away naturally through the day, but this one feels comfortable on and works with the lipstick really well.

I bought the Rouge de G lipstick in Greta from David Jones for AUD $68.  Strawberrynet.com did start selling these lipsticks online, but they have since disappeared from the Guerlain page.  You can buy selected colours from the Rouge de G line on Ebay, but the best bet for ‘Greta’ is yor local department store.  The Lip Pencil in ‘Rouge Cassis’ retails for AUD $40 in David Jones, so I bought mine from alicebeautygiftshopllc for USD $12.95 plus $7.65 shipping to Australia.

    I’ve been wondering about these lipsticks for a while and was very curious to know if they were worth the $$. They look so pretty and Greta is such a beautiful colour.

    Did you know that you can get Guerlain at Wizard Pharmacy at Garden City and they have 15% off at all times?

    They’re really, really beautiful. They are definitely expensive, but I’m very happy with my purchase. Plus, the sales assistant in David Jones was really helpful. I didn’t know that Wizard Pharmacy have a continual 15% discount! Wow! Do they stock the Rouge de G? I’m going to check them out :)

    I haven’t been to Wizard for a while but they usually do have the latest products so I’d imagine they do have the Rouge lipsticks. I’ll have a look next time I’m there.

    Thankyou so much! I’d be really interested to know whether they have th Rouge de G range. I’m looking forward to your trip to Wizard! :)
