Review: Guerlain G Rouge Lipstick 'Gemma'

Guerlain lipsticks are among the most flashy lipsticks I have ever seen. I was curious about them so I decided to purchase one. I have had this for a couple of months, but I use it sparingly.

Price
$46. Expensive :/

Packaging
The packaging is very heavy, and reflective. It comes with a mirror on the inside, and the design is a little complicated. Not your average lipstick tube, that is for sure.



Product
The lipstick is smooth and the color pay off is great. The only problems I have with the formula is that it tends to shift around easily. Because of that, it is easy for it to bleed outside the lip line. It reminds me a lot of the YSL rouge volupte, but slightly better; it doesn't move around as much as the YSL.
'Gemma' is a mauve-rose with golden shimmer. The dimension of color is much better than most lipsticks. The golden sheen makes it much more unique of a color. The gold is also very subtle so it is still very wearable.
This lasts on my lips for about 3 hours.

Swatches



Overall

Although I like this lipstick, I do not think I will be purchasing any more. They are expensive, and honestly I have bought lipsticks that are better formulated for much cheaper.
I think these lipstick are mostly about the packaging.

Thank you all for reading ^_^
