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!
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!
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:
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)…
