Liquid, creamy, consistent, ultrapigmented, and velvety, Rouge G L’Extrait exceptional lip color is the perfect cross between a lipstick and a gloss. The liquid texture glides gently over the lip and within a few moments, the silky color becomes matte. This non-sticky, non-drying, and non-feathering texture leaves your lips looking flawless for hours.

  • A hybrid between a lipstick and a gloss, L’Extrait is liquid yet creamy, velvety yet lightweight and SUPER pigmented.
  • The liquid formula takes moments to set – thankfully not immediately, which gives you time to define your lip shape & correct bloopers.
  • It sets into a velvet matte finish that’s surprisingly soft, comfortable and not at all drying and doesn’t feather.  However it’s not transfer proof – even after blotting and setting it will still transfer a little.
  • It will last for as many hours as you can go without eating, and softens in intensity over time but not in pigment.  If you don’t wipe down your lips after eating, the pigment remains at around 80% even 4 hours after application.  But I can’t resist a good wipe down after a meal to make sure my lips start off with a clean canvas when touching up.
  • The soft formula is thanks to an exotic blend of Guggul resin (smoothing),  hyaluronic acid (plumping), and Tiger Grass (collagen stimulating) which moisturise lips continuously for hours until you wipe it off.
  • Orgueil is a deep wine with warm tones.   I chose this shade over the others because I have a weakness for matte textures in decadent shades.
  • Verdict: My decadent velvet wine lip attracted compliments left right and centre, and it’s now my new favourite statement lip colour! I recommend applying the bulk of the product in the centre of the lips, using only the excess to define lip edges to avoid any gloopy bits that can be tricky to correct once set.  A must-try for lipstick lovers.

I drew over my natural lip line to show you that the texture is fluid enough to create a crisp line with this doe wand applicator.
As you can see it’s not a dry matte finish but looks soft and comfortable with amazing coverage.

  • Rouge Automatique will appeal to those who love sheer textures but want a vibrant colour at the same time.  The formula is hydrating, provides long lasting comfort and radiance.
  • The innovative flip-top applicator not only adds to the fun, but also means you won’t need to worry about juggling both mirror and lipstick cap when touching up on the go.
  • Available in 18 shades, Nahema #143 is described as a bright coral sheen and Shalimar #166 a bright strawberry pink (but it’s fuchsia on me).
  • Incredibly long lasting – it starts off a a highly moisturising & shiny pop of lightweight pigmented colour, then after an hour or two it absorbs into a matte stain, still maintaining its pigment.
  • Whilst it rubs off on takeaway coffee cups, interestingly it does not leave any lipstick marks on glasses or ceramics.   It also doesn’t smear on teeth.
  • Verdict: This is my new favourite lipstick for work, because of how amazingly low maintenance it is – no smudging on teeth, long lasting and so easy to touch up.  It also instantly revives dry or flat looking lips into a juicy pout. Two thumbs up!

Drag the lever down & the flip top opens to reveal the lipstick.

Which one do you like better? I think I might have a softer spot for #166.
Although #143 appears streaky, it’s because I applied a thick layer to produce a good even swatch.
In real life, you won’t need such a thick layer & the streakiness is less noticeable with a sheer layer.

Note: For those in USA, Shalimar #166 is available on Nordstrom whereas Nahema #143 is available on Sephora.

: Gabrielle #60
Swatched by the lovely: Bluebell

  • What they say: Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact contains a ruby-powder formula that interacts with the light and creates a jaw-dropping pout of perfection. At first glaze, lips will be left defined, smoothed, plumped, and hydrated.
  • Bluebell describes shade Gabrielle as “a warm rose but turns cool toned against her complexion.  Very creamy with medium coverage and slight shimmers, lips look plump and slightly glossy giving a beautiful glow.  It’s so moisturising that lips still feel comfortable even after removing it.”
  • Thanks Bluebell for the gorgeous swatch! Rouge G is next on my shopping list!
