I recently lost my mind and ordered three $50 lipsticks from Sephora. I know that's ridiculously expensive for a lipstick but I had a little birthday money so I figured why not splurge on something good! :D
The first thing I chose was the Rouge de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact in Genna 28. As you can see the packaging has a mirror finish and is engraved with 'Guerlain' which makes it look really high end. The downside of it being so shiny is all the fingerprint marks! It's impossible to keep it from smudges.
Now this is where we get fancy! When you pull the lipstick out it automatically flips out a double mirror, one of which is magnified. The whole lipstick is very heavy. It's the heaviest lipstick I own, which I expect since it was $50!
Here is the gorgeous color in Genna 28! It's a beautiful bright warm red. This lipstick is so hydrating. It glides on the lips smoothly and gives a full color shiny finish. Because it's so moisturizing it isn't the longest lasing lipstick. Without eating it will last about 4 hours. If you eat or drink it will transfer and fade.
Next I ordered two Rouge G de Guerlain L'Extrait in M25 Colere and M71 Gourmandise.

These colors are so gorgeous! My favorite is probably Colere. It's the perfect bright cool toned red. I was most looking forward to Gourmandise and while the swatch looks like a bright pink it comes across on my lips as a muted rose color. It's a pretty color, just not what I was expecting.
Overall these were definitely a splurge, but very well worth the money. The packaging and colors are beautiful. I recommend you check these out if you feel like buying something special and luxurious for yourself!
Have you used any of these lipsticks? Would you pay $50 for one lipstick?
