The Complete Guide to GUERLAIN Rouge G Lipstick

Every now and then there’s a launch that makes me fall head over heels for makeup all over again. It’s normally when I encounter a particularly brilliant formula or a unique design that makes me want to show the product off at every opportunity. And more rarely, like with GUERLAIN’s latest launch Rouge G, it’s all of the above. It’s really special.

You may already be familiar with the Rouge G collection; originally launched in 2009, it’s the most luxurious entry in the GUERLAIN lipstick collection and a bit of a beauty classic. Aside from its signature buttery, pigment-rich lipstick formula, the reason Rouge G is so beloved is its one-of-a-kind double mirror case, an incredible innovation that is part old-world glamour, part futuristic gadget. It’s arguably the most famous lipstick silhouette in the world.

So how do you better the best? You turn the tables let the beauty lovers have their say, of course. In a thoroughly 2018-worthy update, GUERLAIN has reinvented Rouge G as a completely customisable lipstick, launching 15 ultra-chic case designs and 30 brand new lipstick shades that can be mixed and matched to create the lipstick of your dreams. There are a possible 450 combinations to be discovered. It’s a great day to be a lipstick fan!
