Guerlain Fall 2012 - Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in 28 Genna Review and Swatches

I'd been planning on doing this review for a while, but never had time to do lip swatches and when I finally got around to taking pictures, the disappeared off my computer when I transferred them from the camera. So I had to redo them, and finally, here's the review.

Out of the 4 Rouge G lipsticks Guerlain released for the fall/autumn, I really loved Gracy which I actually ordered unseen, but I wanted to check Genna out in person because it looked like it may be too orange for me. Good news is, it isn't. It is an orangey-red, very warm, but it's definitely more red than orange. It lasted on me for about 4 hours without eating, it became more and more pink as it faded and left a nice pinky stain behind despite its orange hues which is intriguing.

Guerlain Rouge G lipsticks are my favourites, the formula is lovely, lightweight yet long lasting and the colours are usually so beautiful and flattering. They come in a heavyweight lipstick case with a flip out mirror. Rouge G lipsticks aren't refillable sadly. I haven't run out of any yet (due to having so many lipsticks), but if I do, I would love it if I could just buy a refill, otherwise the case just goes to waste.

Rouge G lipsticks cost £29.50 each and contain 3.5 g of product which is a regular amount. All 4 Rouge G lipsticks released in the fall collection are permanent additions to the Rouge G line, so you don't have to rush out to buy them all straight away.
