Last week's lipstick question from the Lipstick League has reawakened my love of lip colour and made me realize that it's time I tried more of them on. Thus my response to this week's Lipstick League question: if you won a $100 Sephora gift card, what would you spend it on?
Guerlain's cleverest launch ever is this year's collection of "customizable" Rouge G lipsticks and variety of double-mirror caps. It's genius, actually, a brilliant way to maximize the covetable nature of these beautifully designed double-mirrored cases. And it all hangs on that can't-have-just-one-because-they're-all-gorgeous mentality, doesn't it? #guilty
Each case is $20 CAD/$17.50 USD; each lipstick is $36 CAD/$32 USD. If you've got an original Rouge G Lipstick, though, I'm afraid it isn't interchangeable with this collection. These caps won't fit your OG.
A moment on the Rouge G lipstick formula: It's lovely. Dreamy, even. Goes on so smoothly and feels wonderfully emollient without feeling thick and heavy. If you've got generally thirsty lips, you should like this formula. It's also so glamorous that just pulling it from your purse is a lovely pause button in the day. Worth the splurge. I've only just put one in my bag – shade 77 light pink in the Gypsy Folk cap – and I can't wait to use it again later.
There, I'd spend a $100 Sephora gift card on a beautiful, moisturizing lipstick and a pretty cap that speaks to me. What a treat! Also, now I can be smug about not spending the whole amount at once.
Oooh, look at that bad-ass textured black leather cap!
What? I can totally still be smug about not spending the whole hundred bucks at once because there'd still $1.20 left after taxes.
