Even though I featured Gigolo first, this is actually my first Guerlain Rouge G. I was looking around, wondering which shade would be best to get, and fellow blogger Sukie had Brenda with her, brand new in box. I took it off her and never looked back.
The Rouge G is housed in a heavy metal case with a flip top mirror. I find the enclosed mirror very useful. I always use it when I touch up my lipstick. It is luxuriously sturdy and the lipstick in it is decadently buttery. I still remember the first time I swiped it on my lips. The first time my lips kissed the Rouge G. It was a smooth tingling sensation that made me go mmmm. So this is what everybody’s been talking about. What took me so long to finally give it a try?
Brenda looks bright coral, but in actual fact, it is a sheer peachy orange. My natural lip colour peeks through the coral so my guess is Brenda will look slightly different on everybody. Due to sheer texture, I have to reapply it often, like every 2 hours. My lips are kept moisturized and comfortable. There is a definite sheen to this lipstick but there is no sight of glitter at all.
This is Brenda on my lips.
Also worn on my face:
What do you think of Brenda? Perhaps your heart skips a beat when you saw Gigolo? Brenda is a great every day shade and it goes with everything. The sheen makes my lips juicy and moist without having to top with gloss. I’m not much of a gloss person. Have you tried Guerlain Rouge G? What was your first shade? If you haven’t, oh, you sooo need to try this. Just sayin’ 🙂
