The Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick, 820 Rouge Parade is the limited edition lipstick in Guerlain’s Night at The Opera Collection this Christmas and this is definitely a ‘Wow!’ lipstick. Guerlain is my favourite luxury beauty brand and I picked this beautiful lipstick up in the Guerlain store on Le Champs-Élysées when in Paris recently, which incidentally was the most beautiful and decadent beauty and perfume store I have ever been in!
I was very good and this was the only item I bought in the store (it was so difficult not to fill a basket with beautiful goodies believe me!). The very lovely assistant in Guerlain approved of my purchase, declaring the lipstick to be the colour of Christmas and I whole heartedly agreed with her.
This lipstick is stunningly gorgeous, I honestly feel like a movie star when I put this on! Guerlain describe it as ‘a red lacquer’ as the pigment is intense and has a luminous satin finish. It is very much a true classic red lipstick which you can see from the Natalia Vodianova advertising campaign. I think this is a lipstick shade which would very much suit everyone.
The packaging is beautiful, pulling this out of my clutch bag on a night out really does make me feel like a glamourous 1950’s movie star. The lipstick is encased in a stunning red lacquer which houses a normal and magnifying mirror. This lipstick may be a little weighty but that just adds to the glamour for me.
