Guerlain Rouge G (864) Rose Grenat & its Summer 2014 sisters

April 23, 2014

Every year Guerlain comes up with one of the most highly anticipated Summer collections, and this year promises to be even bigger than ever as they get ready to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famed Terracotta. I’m bouncing on the balls of my feet in anticipation and surveying my local counters like a shark every chance I get. And was “rewarded” by these 7 new Rouge Gs that had quietly arrived without any fanfare.



The star of the bunch, is of course that limited edition pink Rouge G with its matching pink case!

Guerlain Rouge G Rose Grenat (864) is a medium-dark reddened fuchsia. On my hand, it swatched as a cool pink, but on my lips it turns almost warm and more red than pink. It has rich, intense color and is fully opaque in a single swipe. It wears well on its own, but due to the creamy nature of the Rouge G formula, wears down with eating and drinking. It is the most comfortable lip product I’ve tried lately… in fact after the stickiness of the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks, and the matte-ness of the YSL Kiss & Blush and Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato; my lips breathed a deep sigh of relief at Rose Grenat.

I was worried it would be too similar to some of my recent bright pink lip acquisitions (burgeoning lipstick collection woes), and swatched them side-by-side for comparison:

There is another Rouge G – Rose Glace (866) which is essentially a shimmer balm. It has a clear base with lots of pale pink shimmer, and is meant for wearing as an accent on bare lips (oh poolside goddesses rejoice!), or over another base color for maximum shine. It comes in a pale pink case and is limited edition as well.

Guerlain’s Rouge Gs are everybody’s favorite lip formula, and so it is exciting to see 5 new shades join the permanent line-up:

• Galiane (15) – nude beige
• Gaetane (16) – deep brown
• Geraldine (77) – luminous pink
• Gladys (78) – bright fuchsia
• Geneva (48) – orange

Here are swatches of the full range:

As of this review, Rose Grenat has already sold out in Singapore, so if you’re in serious need to collect this, do start searching online. However, the rest of the collection is still available, and I’m personally very fond of Geraldine and Geneva! Do check them out!
