Guerlain Rouge G 864 Rose Grenat

I have fallen in love with Guerlain Rouge G lipstick since scoring Madam Reve so I have been checking out Guerlain counters for more shades. I actually missed the boat of getting Guerlain Rouge G Rose Grenat over the counters in Singapore so I decided to just get it over Nordstrom since I am getting other online purchases too.

Similar to other Rouge G, Rose Grenat comes in the heavy magnetic case with a mirror in it. The specialty is deep fuchsia lacquered case instead of the usual shiny silver case.

Rose Grenat is a cool deep fuchsia reddish pink that look almost similar to it's lacquer case.

I did a comparison against some of my existing lipstick stash and here are the swatches.

As you can see from the swatches above, the pigmentation of Rose Grenat is the strongest and none of my lipsticks here is a complete dupe to it. To demonstrate how pigmented Rose Grenat is, check out the picture below. It left a stain even after I removed the swatch with Bioderma Cleansing Water. So be sure to use a good makeup remover while wearing this shade.

The texture of Rouge G is impressively smooth but I would still recommend wearing a lip balm before applying Rouge G to protect your lips since the staining power is pretty strong.

Not sure how much is Rose Grenat retailing over the counters in Singapore but it was USD54 on Nordstrom, USD3 higher than normal Rouge G.
