Just When You Think You’ve Seen All the Pretty Fuchsia Pinks in the World, Guerlain Came Up with Rose Grenat Rouge G

Guerlain Rose Grenat FOTD

Hurrah, hurrah! Guerlain is finally adding some new shades to their Rouge G line-up! Besides the 5 permanent additions, there are two limited “collector” shades. Will you just look at Rose Grenat? Even if you think you already own all the fuchsia pinks ever made, I dare you not to be swept off your feet by this beauty!

Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G (864)

Since it is a special collector edition, Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G (864. RRP in Belgium: 45,70 euros) comes in this darling matching pink packaging. The word on the street is it is inspired by Mercedes-Benz sports cars, although I can’t seem to find any information on the Guerlain website or PR info to confirm this.

Anyways, it’s even more stunning and luxurious than usual. Let’s leave it at that!

Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G (864) review

Rose Grenat is a cool-toned fuchsia pink. It is one of those shades that are instantly brightening and will work across different skin tones/undertones.

Rose Grenat has a true Rouge G formula that you might already be familiar with. It is intensely pigmented with a nice satin sheen. It doesn’t feel “wet,” doesn’t move around, and I wore Rose Grenat for 11 hours before I had to remove it and go to bed. It wore off to a stain after 7-8 hours, but the stain was even and pretty strong. It would take a second meal to finish it off!

I have to reiterate that I really like the shape of the tip of Rouge G‘s. I think it is important for such a richly-pigmented formula to have a tip that allows more control and precise application (I mean, alternatively you can bust out a lip brush, but who always has the time for that?), and in this case, it has really worked out.

Ahh, the luminous fuchsia pink goodness!

A couple more shots for you to see Rose Grenat in context:

Guerlain Rose Grenat + Clinique Berry Pop FOTD

For the rest of my face, I have Burberry Pale Barley, Chanel Hasard, and Clinique Berry Pop on. I’m not sure I’ll write a separate review for Berry Pop (if you want to see more photos, let me know in the comment). Let’s just say it takes a little more blending than Ginger Pop (probably because it contrasts much more with my skin tone), but otherwise it’s just as good!

Bottom line is, I have a hard time imagining anyone not loving Guerlain Rose Grenat Rouge G! If you have a little money to spare, I suggest you pick it up before it’s gone!

Now, if you would excuse me: I am going to drift off and fantasize about Geneva (48. It’s a CORAL. What do you expect?) and Gladys (shimmery fuchsia berry)…

 

 



  • corallista

    Such a stunning color! You look lovely with the winged liner!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Ankita! I am really infatuated with the shade!

  • http://beautyreflectionsblog.com TracyBeautyReflections

    ACCCK! This is PRETTY!!! REALLY pretty! I think this will be mine for sure! Gorgeous on you Sunny! You need to wear fuchsias more often! And maybe a radiant orchid? ;)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Tracy! I’d LOVE to see this on you! I think it’ll look stunning!

      Yeah, I should eventually venture into radiant orchid ;)

  • rachlovespenguins

    I’m still fixated on Galiane and Tonka Imperiale. Not that I really need more nude lip colours. :P

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I am relatively sure Galiane will be too beige on me, but then again I have that problem with almost EVERYTHING nude!

      • rachlovespenguins

        I have that problem with nearly everything bright. Here YOU get luminous fuchsia pink goodness. On me, I’m guessing neon. hehe
        I’d probably do better with a colour like this in gloss form. Come to think of it I’m going to go check out the Lip Lover colours again!

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Oh I’d be more comfortable with neon than beige/brown! Those make me look SO ill :p

          And yes, I think you’d be better off with a brighter Lip Lover indeed!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I want! You had me at fuchsia pink, it looks fab on you. Now I have to devise a way to go to the counter to get it.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Jacqueline! I’m sure you’ll LOVE this thing!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    Berry pop looks good on you too.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks! I think all four Cheek Pops are universally-flattering. It’s interesting to see how Ginger and Peach sold out much faster here though! I guess they look less intimidating in a way? ;)

  • 38noodles

    Smash my head onto desk!! By the time I had the time to purchase this, it was sold out ;(
    You make it look amazing! Am going to try another counter and see if it was meant to be.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      OH NO OH NO OH NO!!! Don’t give up just yet! Try to hunt it down. They might even be willing to check the stock for their counters all over the country for you. If you need help, let me know!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    Such a great colour for summer ! Looks good on you.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Jill! I’d say this is pretty universally-flattering since it’s slightly cool-toned ;)

  • http://loveand-laughter.blogspot.be AnneliesDP

    This packaging is so freaking adorable and luxurious, love it!

    Love, Annelies

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I KNOW! Guerlain is full of surprises!

  • Icaria

    Oh my! The packaging is stunning and the color truly looks great on you! *sigh* so many pretty things coming out… How will I ever choose?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah, April is a bit of a minefield for the wallet! Things do calm down after the summer collections are out though!

  • silverkis

    oh Sunny babe, those wings!!! And yes, Rose Grenat, oh how many fuchsia pinks can they turn out!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much! I guess it’s hard to make a bad fuchsia pink really ;)

  • Bella

    That looks so good, I am almost tempted to forget my contempt for Guerlain lipsticks. Almost, but not quite :p.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I was wondering if this would change your mind :p Maybe one day!

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    This is a stunning fuchsia pink for you, Sunny!
    And Berry Pop is perfect with Rose Grenat. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Lena! I think Berry Pop will work with cooler-toned pinks in general!

  • http://lamajesty.wordpress.com/ Emae

    Sunny, I have a serious question. How do you manage to update your blog regularly? I barely have the time to write a new post! Ugh!

    Anyhoo, I LOVE THIS SHADE! How does this compare to Provocative? :) Also, is Provocative still available in your country? Hihi! I don’t quite like the packaging of this lipstick :(

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha so I have a bit of a production line really! I group products I have to photograph, and after that, they become products I have to try out and do face shots for. I try to do looks that combine multiple products (without them looking out of place), so with one face shot I might be able to talk about a couple of products or more. Does that make sense? ;)

      This is lighter than Provocative and less red. I don’t think Provocative is still available here. Most lipsticks in Crazy Paris sold out rather fast from what I remember! So sorry to hear you’re not liking the packaging! I totally adore it :p

      • http://lamajesty.wordpress.com/ Emae

        Thanks! Looks like I must get out of my “procrastination zone” and blog more! Huzzah!

        Maybe I just liked Provocative’s (that collection, rather) packaging more. Black + pink, need I say more? LOL

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          OK yeah that makes sense! The two shades aren’t that similar though ;)

  • fancie

    The color and the packaging are to die for! So gorgeous!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! *dreamy sigh*

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    I do like the sporty look of the case. Lovely colour for spring!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I agree! :)

  • Dominique33

    Gorgeous Sunny, I think it’s one of the most beautiful pink lipstick ever !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Dominique! I agree. I have no idea how Guerlain mix colors, but they seem to systematically make REALLY good ones!

      • Dominique33

        Yes and this one is the wonder of wonders ( I should back up I know ^^ but I won’t,, those Rouges G are so pricey ! ),

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Haha well I doubt very much you’ll ever finish this one. You hardly have to reapply!

  • http://theconsciencefund.wordpress.com/ Divya

    This looks lovely on you!! Such a pretty color but so pricey uggghh!

    Check out a bronzy makeup look on my blog

    http://theconsciencefund.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/the-bronzed-glow/

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Divya, I know! That’s the only “con” about this one!

      • http://theconsciencefund.wordpress.com/ Divya

        You know I think a dupe for this one is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture no.4 Rouge Vermillion. It looks a lot like this and at a better price point!

        I posted a Bronzy makeup look on my blog, Let me know what you think, Ill be glad to know! :)

  • http://www.pastelblvd.com/ Stella R.

    The shade is so pretty! I haven’t tried any Guerlain products. Guess I gotta look into the brand more!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stella, oh you’re missing out! Guerlain is an awesome, awesome brand! Start from the lipsticks. Their formulas truly excel.

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    omg that pink packaging! This truly is a stunning fuchsia and i adore it on you! I have yet to purchase a Rouge G, now might be the time ;-)))

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Taylor! Yeah it might really be the time!

  • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

    This is ridiculously attractive on you :-D the colour, the packaging… *sigh* someday I will raid the Guerlain Dragon’s hoard….someday…

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Syl! I hope you’ll get a Rouge G some day. They’re lovely! Alternatively, you can always start with a Rouge Automatique: that’s how I got hooked on Guerlain :)

      • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

        Haha, the gateway lipstick? ;-)

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Yeah. Not going to call Rouge Automatiques cheap, but they are cheapER and the formula is excellent as well! Rouge G’s are richer on average, but Rouge Automatiques do pack enough pigment for my personal preferences!

  • http://smashinbeauty.com/ SmashinBeauty

    Beautiful, love the packaging

  • http://smashinbeauty.com/ SmashinBeauty

    Beautiful, love the packaging

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! It’s so unapologetically girly :)

  • http://www.hellojaa.com/ Jaa

    THE PACKAGING! Honestly, the color is nice but I am more attracted to the pink packaging! :D Looks lovely on you especially when worn with that Berry Pop on the cheeks! <3

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha well the packaging is identical to the color of the lipstick!

      Thanks, Jaa! <3

  • http://scribblewithliner.wordpress.com/ Siri Lovise Eliassen

    How does this one compare to Provocative?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, Provocative is darker, warmer, and redder!

      • http://scribblewithliner.wordpress.com/ Siri Lovise Eliassen

        Oooh! Then I must swatch! I’m in the market for a bright pink these days,but nothing too similar to the stuff I’ve already got (and Provocative was too similar too UD Catfight on me). By the way, I went ahead and did it – Nahema will be working it’s magic on my lips in the months to come ;)

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          YES! I’m so glad you’re finally getting Nahema! Do swatch this one, too. It’s not all that similar with Provocative, although I do have mad love for that one as well (now come to think of it, it’s hard for me to find a Guerlain lipstick that I don’t have mad love for)!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    I think you should wear these fuchsias much more often, Sunny! It’s such a great color on you. Very fresh!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Larie! I like how these shades contrast with my hair color! They kinda really pop!

  • http://www.vibrantbeautyblog.com/ Jennifer Monforton

    Loving the title of this post! Fuchsias and hot pinks are my #1 lipstick weakness, so of course this is right up my alley. Can’t beat Guerlain packaging and the shade is lovely on you! I’ve giving up buying new lipsticks for the rest of the year (eek!), but have favourited this so I can remind myself about how nice this is in 2015 :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jennifer, haha but this is limited edition so if you want it, you can’t really wait :p A reader told me it’s already sold out in Taiwan, and I assume it’ll sell out relatively fast everywhere ;)

  • Lola Seicento

    For the love of fuchsia– this is GAGAGAGORGEOUS! It also looks extraordinary on you! The pink packaging is just drool-worthy too! Pale Barley is one of my very favorite Burberry shadows– it is basically a tie between it and Midnight Brown!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Helen! I’m definitely digging the packaging! It’s the SAME COLOR as the lipstick! How adorable is that!

      I have mad love for Pale Barley as well. There is quite a dent in mine!

  • http://macaronsandmischief.com/ Whitney

    THAT CASE! Silver with pink lining, it screams gorgeousness! This is such a classy colour! Why do I not have this yet?!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! It’s the same color as the lipstick. SO adorable!

      You should look into this one. I think you can find similar shades, but Rose Grenat is really so well-done!

  • SprinklesOnACupcake

    Oh, so pretty! I have the light color, I can use it all the time, but this one is pretty cute as well!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Petra, oh this one is such a darling! Probably not something you can wear to work every day, but ahhhh so pretty :)

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    I love the colour and the packaging is adorable! I usually pull off fuchsia pinks pretty well, though for some weird reason I’ve been a bit more on the “safe” side recently and not done it as much. I must take advantage of spring and get back to wearing them!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, yeah you should definitely go back to wearing them! They’re great for spring/summer! :)

  • http://lipstickintheattic.blogspot.com/ Judith

    What a beauty! I’m really dying to try a rouge G and this one is a serious contender!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, you’ve got to act fast if you want this one! I don’t think it’ll take Rose Grenat too long at all to be sold out :)
