What Guerlain says about the Product :
Guerlain’s Rouge G, Glamorous, Gorgeous and Generous, the secret to the most beautiful of smiles. At first sight, it looks like an amazingly luxurious minaudière bag. Then, in one click, it transforms to release an exceptional lipstick and a secret mirror. Key ingredients create the perfect smile: radiance revealing Ruby Powder, light-reflecting liquid pearl particles, hyaluronic acid spheres and Guggul resin fill out the smile, Vitamin A Palmitate and Tiger Grass plump the lips and mango butter ensures softness.
My take on the Product
The Lipstick comes in a gorgeous metallic packaging. You slide open the case like a regular lipstick and a mirror flips open on the cap which is excellent for touch ups! It feels quite heavy and is the most luxurious looking lipstick I own! The only downside – the metallic packaging retains fingerprints very easily so it tends to look a little grubby! It comes with a velvet sleeve you can carry it in (sorry I forgot to take a picture). It really does help in keeping the surface pristine and avoiding scratches etc. from carrying it around in your purse. I have read that some people find the lipstick a bit chunky and heavy to carry around. But I don’t mind, especially when I slip in into its sleeve.
The texture of this lipstick is simply beautiful, I’ve never tried any other lipstick that melts like that on the lips. The moment you swipe it on, the formula liquifies to give a coat of juicy, translucent color with a soft, glistening shine. I love this kind of finish and this is simply the best when it comes to sheer, glossy lipsticks. The pigmentation is medium, its not too sheer but its not fully opaque either. It has enough pigment to cover up uneven lips like mine without looking like a heavy block of color on the lips. This kind of formula is never too long wearing but I don’t mind the touch ups because applying this lipstick onto the lips is pure bliss! It stays about 3 hours or so on my lips but tends to fade away quickly with meals/drinks. It is very hydrating, it softens and smoothens the lips and even when the color fades, my lips feel healthy and supple. It feels absolutely light weight on the lips and you don’t feel like you’re wearing something. It doesn’t get patchy or uneven as it fades. I love love LOVE this formula!
It contains a host of great ingredients that give a more plumped and smooth appearance to the lips, while giving long lasting hydration- hyaluronic acid spheres, Vitamin A Palmitate and mango butter to name a few. And I totally agree with the brand’s description because it does fill out the lines and uneven-ness on the lips to give a smoother, fuller, healthier appearance!
The shade B63 Bella is a beautiful warm brick shade with soft gold pearl. The pearl is very subtle, quite sparse and barely translates onto the lips. It doesn’t stick around once the color has faded, nor does it settle into lines. The shade is gorgeous for warm skin tones, especially deeper complexions. Its got a bit of red, a bit of brown and I feel a touch of pink as well because on my lips, it looks a little cooler (maybe because its not very opaque and my natural lip color shows through a bit). Overall, its a color that is just very effortless to carry. I feel it gives a very chic and polished look to the face. Highly recommended!

Guerlain Rouge G le Brillant Jewel Lipstick Compact is not easy on the pocket but its one lipstick that I absolutely LOVE! The packaging is super luxurious and the formula pampers the lips like nothing else! The lipstick melts on the lips to give a coat of juicy color with a lovely glistening shine. It is super hydrating and feels light weight yet very comforting on the lips. The pigment is enough of cover up uneven lips. The only drawback is that you need frequent touch ups with a formula like this but when the packaging is THAT pretty, I don’t mind at all! Pure luxury, totally worth it!
