Red Lip Series: Guerlain Rouge G L’extrait in Orgueil

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 19 - 2012

There’s nothing like an impulse purchase to get your blood pumping. And this was nothing like an impulse purchase.

I umm’ed and ahh’ed over the Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait(s) for a good few weeks before taking the plunge. As much as I adore a wonderful red lipstick, I wanted something a bit different to the usual red.

Once I saw a swatch of Orgueil worn by the beautiful Christine from Temptalia, I knew that I’d found my next prey!

The packaging is as beautiful as you’d expect from something in the Guerlain Rouge G range. Sleekly-housed in a heavyweight silver case that works in a similar way to the Rouge G lipstick range, the mirror serves a genuinely useful purpose when it comes to applying product on the go.

The formula is light and the pigment rich. It’s a fairly traditional liquid lipstick with a velvety texture and a softly matte finish once dry.

Longevity is good and transfer fairly minimal, especially if blotted softly a few minutes after applying. I was able to wear this through multiple drinks, and only needed to reapply a little in the centre if the lips after a meal.

As the day wore on, it began to feel slightly less comfortable so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this for those with extremely dry lips – but you probably know to steer clear of liquid lipstick formulas anyway…

The colour is beautiful. It’s rich, sumptuous, and velveteen with a luxurious depth. Vampy without crossing the line into gothic. A winter must-have.


Guerlains Rouge G L’Extrait in Orgueil is available to buy on counter (or cheaper online) at Escentual.com, priced at £26.55

    A thing of beauty, period! Gorgeous color on you! 😀

    This is serendipitous: I am wearing the exact same color today! It is one of my favorite reds and favorite liquid lipsticks out there, it can be a tad drying but I never find it uncomfortable to wear.

    In terms of comfort + moisturizing + staying power, I find the best liquid lipsticks out there are the Lancôme L’Absolu Creme de Mat, but sadly they are a limited edition and only three shades are available.

    See, now I’m going to have to investigate this colour. I have Gourmandise and Colere and the formula of the L’extrait range is a winner for me, though I may get more transfer than your minimal, its lasts non the less.

  4. Trona says:

    this is BEAUTIFUL, I was going to get another armani maestro lip lacquer but I really love this *adds to list*

  5. Such a beautiful color, especially for Fall.

  6. Oh that’s really pretty. It’s a great colour on you and the finish looks so nice.
    S xx

  7. I appreciate that you mentioned the not best for very dry lips thing, because I had a feeling even though the formula sounds good overall, that it still probably wouldn’t work so well for me (my lips are super dry). The color is beautiful, though!

    I actually let out a little gasp and said “Oooooh!” when I scrolled down and saw the colour on your lips.

    I was doing well, ignoring Guerlain’s fancy, fabulous products in their wonderous casings. And then I saw this post. I tried to resist, I really did. But eventually I couldn’t take it ånd longer. So guess what I’m wearing, and probably will be wearing for the next couple of days, in addition to my ever trusty pawpaw… It’s so incredibly gorgeous, I can’t even feel bad spending all that money on one product.
