This week’s exclusive newsletter subscriber giveaway: Guerlain Rouge G lipstick in Garconne
When it comes to beauty as art, few companies come close to French beauty house Guerlain. The brand, owned by LVMH, strives to create beauty products that the same caliber as high fashion accessories. And there is no better example as Rouge G lipstick, created in 2009 as the ultimate status lipstick.
“I longed for a new mysterious beauty icon that united the qualities of a powder case, a jewel and the most precious lipstick. It is no longer a traditional lipstick; it becomes an object of desire. We enter a new dimension of makeup,” explains Guerlain Makeup Creative Director Olivier Echaudemaison.
The polished silver casing is actually quite heavy. It was designed by Lorenz Baumer, the most audacious jeweler of Place Vendome using an inversed ingot process. It’s the same approach Lorenz uses to create his extravagant necklaces and bracelets. Slip off the cap and it instantly pops open revealing a sizable mirror for easy application.
The Giveaway: I gave away a Guerlain Rouge G lipstick in Garconne to one lucky newsletter subscriber. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment if they’ve ever tried a Guerlain lipstick. Gill W from Northern Ireland told us and we drew her name! congrats Gill!!
