The amazing thing about beauty, which a lot of people don’t seem to understand is that products are toys and gadgets for grown woman to play with and feel decadent, luxurious and fabulous. As I mentioned I love film, I love the femme fatale and I loved it when Lauen Bacall said, “put your lips together and blow”. I was looking at her perfect cupid’s bow and marvelling at the fact, here was a woman and she was only 19 at the time!!! At 31, I still don’t feel that grown up and in an age where young is good and old is bad and you can see women of a certain age in Topshop trying on mini ra ra skirts, who really should know better- we are not really encouraged to be sexy, sophisticated grown up women.
However, with Guerlain’s new lipstick Rouge G de Guerlain lipstick you feel like the sensual siren you always knew was in your soul. The packaging was designed by jeweller Lorenz Baumer with a mirror built into the case, which just oozes 1940s Hollywood screen goddess and a time when girls couldn't wait to grow up.
I think there is a growing sense caused by our economic climate that we are all after things that are more precious, less throw away and luxurious with real craftsmanship. Here, Rouge G de Guerlain delivers. The formula is also nourishing and won’t dry your lips out, as it has moisturising mango butter, lip smoothing and plumping hyaluronic acid microspheres, as well as rich deep pigments. Grab one today for a lost decadence and sense of grown up glamour that is both fun and empowering.
