Rouge G de Guerlain

Here is my little Rouge G collection. The Rouge G lipstick line was introduced by Guerlain in Spring '09. 07 "Gaby" is my current favorite. It's a flattering shimmery copper-rose. I am not a big fan of the packaging. Although undeniably glamorous, the metal case is somewhat bulky and a bit awkward to open and close, and it doesn't stand up due to the rounded design. Some may like the built-in mirror, although I have found I don't make use of it. The lipstick itself is quite nice...but is it worth the hefty price tag? Hmmm... perhaps only if you love the unique packaging, or the Guerlain brand (as I do), otherwise you will find plenty of comparable lip formulas out there for about half the price.  Without further ado, here are the photos:
