I have Giuletta and Gems from this line. These are my favorite lipsticks ever. The packaging is great almost like a jewel. A mirror is involved so its easy to re-apply wherever you are. Smells rosy which can be a cons for some people. The texture is so smooth, pigmented and moisturizing. Lasts for a really one time. It is my HG lip product!

I have it in Garance (06). Initially I only bought it because I liked the color: on my lips it reads muted rose with a hint of brown (which is just a tad brighter than my quite pigmented lips). I hated the packaging from the pictures and when I got it I hated it even more. To me there is nothing sophisticated about it. It looks like a toy for guys (like a bullet or something). It is heavy and bulky. If it wasn't the amazing formula, I would've regretted the purchase. But the formula makes up for everything: it is creamy but not to the point where it melts off your lips within an hour or bleed, it is waxy without feeling stiff. It is better than my all-time favorite Chanel's Rouge Allures. And it doesn't have the smell like Guerlain's lipglosses which was too loud for me to bear. I am def going to keep buying this hoping they will tune down the packaging at some point.

Such a fabulous lipstick. I am one to sing the praises of drugstore makeup but lips are obviously not the place to skimp. This lipstick is the creamiest, most hq formula I have come across, and it lasts me a few months of daily wear. True, gorgeous shades that I always get compliments on--and the packaging alone is worth the kinda high price tag. If you're looking for a truly fabulous lipstick in look and feel, look no further. Money well spent.

This is called "weapon of mass seduction" which is SO TRUE! Packaging is the sexiest ever! I got Gwen for my red-lipstick-mood & Galia for everyday neutral lips. The lipstick is creamy, smooth & pigmented. I didn't need to apply lip balm underneath & color stays true for long time. Expensive but very worth the money, especially when people turn their heads checking out the cool packaging, while you're feeling classy retouching your lips with the equally great lipstick inside. This makes as a great gift also--have it personalized with name engraving! Guerlain made me happy with this product & I'll repurchase!

I have this in Gisele (08) -- deep golden rose. The color can go on lightly or layered for more depth, and it is a simply beautiful color that I can wear dailly. It is long-lasting without drying like most stains. They have many other colors, some I want to try. But holy cow, this is the most expensive lipstick I have ever bought. The case is both beautifully and wastefully package. The attached mirror is convenient and the weight does not bother me, but the case is not refillable or recyclable (that I am aware of). I am looking to purchase Gabrielle (60) or Gil (40) when I set aside the money. If anyone has tried these, please message me and let me know your opinion. The bottom line, I think these lipsticks are very high end. I can tell the difference for sure. I will repurchase but only in colors that I can wear daily. I wanted a red for Christmas time but it is not a look I can pull off often enough to warrant the price.

Initially, the price held me back from purchasing this product. However, a sales associate at my Guerlain counter gave me a free tester tube, and I've been hooked ever since. I've purchased five of them (I don't even want to add that up in my head). My favorite is Gaby 07. It's a shimmery copper color with just enough red. It seems to go with almost everything. I also have 06 which is a gorgeous neutral, 08 which is a pink/coral with slight shimmer. I also have 23, Geisha, which is a nice orangish red that I wear under 07 to mute it a little. The best thing about these is the formula. It conditions, plumps and makes my lips so smooth and healthy. I always got chapped lips in winter, and nothing seemed to help, but I only wear these and my lips feel fabulous and moist with no chapping at all. I highly recommend these if you can afford them.

I have reviewed Bee in its own section, Bee is probably my most favorite color and the first of the Rouge Gs and the one that started my addiction with them.
Overall this is by far the best lipstick I have ever owned.
Colors I own are Bee (special edition violet-plum in special edition packaging), Garconne (the new gorgeous pure red) and Gaby (a bronze). I generally prefer dramatic darker and more vibrant colors since I have large plump lips but bronze is great for everyday or when I focus on eyes. Love the colors, Garconne is the most striking, most beautiful red I have ever used.
Texture wise this lipstick is also far better than the others I have used and I have used many different brands which I thought were great but this lipstick has the most amazing even, moist texture, finishes vary but are all lovely, some with shimmer (like Bee which is part of the Le Brilliant collection with subtle gold shimmer and Gaby is also shimmery), Garconne has a gorgeous vinyl like shine to it.
Quality wise even the dark colors do not bleed at all, they define lips beautifully and are easy to apply even without first lining lips with a pencil. The color does in fact stay on for many hours, up to something like six even when sipping coctails or snacking. One of the great features of this lipstick is that it moisturizes even the driest, most sensitive lips; my lips tend to even crack and bleed, none of that when wearing this lipsticks, its moisturizing power stays as long as the color and when the color comes off it comes off even.
I love the scent of this lipstick, it is subtle and unlike many other lipsticks it does not taste bad.
The packaging to me is one of the most amazing things about Rouge G; I hated carrying separate larger mirrors with me and a lipstick compact is an awesome, very practical idea. Yes, sure it is heavier than most other lipstick cases but that does not bother me and the case is virtually undestructible. I hate it when gorgeous high shine cases scratch up easily but this does not. The Rouge G lipstick compact is a work of art, its beauty is unparralleled, like a perfect statue. My special edition Bee stands out from the crowd due to the tiny bee imprinted on the mirror inside the compact and the gold G on the outside. I cannot imagine something more beautiful, it is to die for.

Bought 06 Garance because I purchased online and wanted to be sure it was a wearable color. It is a beige pink that reminds me very much of Lipstick Queen Saint Nude.
The Rouge G formula is a *dream*. So creamy and smooth, and melts into the lips so that it looks like your own color rather than "sitting on top", if you know what I mean.
I happen to like the rose-like fragrance, and it doesn't linger nor have a taste.
Compared to Lipstick Queen, though, the Guerlain formula remains moist and feels good for much longer. Also, there is a little moist sheen to it, whereas St Nude feels matte in comparison. Depends on the look one wants. I generally am a gloss fan, so I really like the subtle sheen. It is not a shimmer, but lips look... kissable!
I also like the very heavy, substantial packaging. It is so rich and elegant--perfect for a night out when you want to look luxurious! (Not so great for those of us who carry around 5+ lipsticks every day though!)
This is an amazing lipstick. The price is really outrageous, but because of all the other positives, I expect I'll purchase another shade. :-)

Got this in #06 Garance, a brown rose shade that sorta comes in the middle between nude and dramatic shades. Light enough to wear daily but heavy enough for special nights out cuz it actually shows and doesn't make me look pale like some nude shades would. I love the color, goes beautifully with smoky or light eyes.
The texture is so buttery and smooth...goes on like a dream...very moisturizing...and interestingly this is the first tube lipstick that last this long even through drinks and light meals. It's not magic or anything, it does fade, just after going through so much.
I apply Guerlain's Terrcotta Lip Gloss in Grenade (the new laque formula) and it looks gorgeous. They make a gr8 combo.

I love the quality of their lipsticks and prefer the lipstick casing to that of its new sister - the Rouge Automatique. I've just purchased my second Rouge G but shan't comment on the colour since I believe that's a subjective view depending on your preference and differs with women of every age and colour. I have taken 1 lippie off only because Rouge Automatique has a better range of colours than the Rouge G. However, funnily enough, though Automatique boasts of long wearing colours in their range, I still found Rouge G's performance in lasting wear quite formidable as well.
I also found that application of Rouge Automatique's lipsticks to be clumsy because of the shape of its design. While Rouge G's casing design is undeniably heavy, it also includes a mirror, which I do not make a habit of carrying around...such old fashioned glamour in the act of applying lipstick gets my vote. Furthermore, perhaps it's my imagination, but I do think Rouge G's lipstick formula is superior to that of its sister, richer and creamier...but alas, that's just me, ladies.
