Guerlain Lip Innovation

Guerlain, Lip Innovation, promoThe second part of Guerlain’s spring release is Lip Innovation, which features the release of TWO new lipstick formulas. Kiss Kiss Strass ($31, meant to replace Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine, click here for old swatches), and Rouge G Le Brillant ($46), the shinier, glossier incarnation of Guerlain’s Rouge G formula. Click here to revisit the Lip Innovation Sneak Peek for the official word on these formulas.

Regrettably, my Guerlain counter did not have a complete set of testers (I hate that). Missing are Kiss Kiss Strass 343 Brun Satin and 361 Rose Strass, and Rouge G Le Brillant B60 Beatrix.

Guerlain has also divided the shades into color families for handy reference: in the Red Gold family are 320 Rouge Taffeta, 321 Rouge Broderie, and 322 Cuivre Drape; in the Yellow Gold family are 340 Beige Mousseline, 341 Brun Parure, 342 Orange Sequin, and the unswatched 343 Brun Satin; and in the Pink Gold family are 360 Rose Perle, the unswatched 361 Rose Strass, and 362 Corail Dentelle (my favorite, of course).

The Rouge G Le Brilliant lipsticks are gorgeous. They’re sheer and glossy and I like almost every shade — but at $46 each, I have to avert my eyes.

The Nude family: B01 Blondie, B02 Barbara, and B03 Bridget. The Red family: B20 Berry and B21 Bianca. The Pink family: the unswatched B60 Beatrix, B61 Brenda (if I had to choose one favorite, I think it would be Brenda), B62 Betsy, and B63 Bella. The Orange family: B40 Brit.

Also remember that all Guerlain lipsticks are scented, but testers, which stand open 24/7, lose their scent over time.

    >Thank you, Karla!!!!!!! I do 99.9% of my make-up/skincare shopping online and I rely on your swatches—–esp @ $46 a pop—-no room in my wallet for mistakes ;-)

    I'm in love with Chante's Lip Chics (thanks to you), but I'll have to pick up a few of the new Guerlain Brilliants for my collection just because I can't look away!

    THANK YOU (for today and belatedly for the past swatching, too). Have a WONDERFUL weekend :-)

    These are great swatches! Do you ever end up purchasing any of the products you swatch? I was wondering if you ended up picking up one/some of these and how you liked the formula in terms of moisture, wear time, etc.
