Available in 25 different shades, the lipstick contains the rather unusual ingredient of ruby powder, which acts as an optical whitener to bring out the colour and shine of the shades. The blend of natural active ingredients (including Tiger Grass, Mango Butter and Gugul Resin,) help to plump, smooth, bring moisture and add softness to your lips. The formula is extremely soft and easy to wear, not feeling at all heavy or cakey on the lips, while the touches of shimmer ensure lips really do look fuller. This shade is Rose Glace, providing an almost invisible colour to the lips that simply enhances their natural shade; it's a great product to have in your handbag day or night when you don't want to look too 'overdone' or give away your natural beauty secrets.
The big question though, is would you part with £31.50 to own it? Realistically, you're paying 75% for the brand name and luxurious packaging - but if that's your thing and you burst with excitement upon purchasing a little token that makes you feel good, why the hell not? Many of us spend a ridiculous amount on designer handbags, shoes we barely wear and jewellery we store away for a special occasion, so why not treat your lips to a little excessive glamour? Yes, it's £20 more than a high street lipstick, but with Guerlain's Rouge you're definitely paying for the experience and the way it makes you feel. If you're still not convinced, then there's always Makeup Revolution!
The Guerlain Rouge lipsticks are available online and via department stores, priced £31.50 each and available in 25 different shades.
