My lipstick pick from Guerlain Voilette de Madame collection for Fall 2013 was Rouge G in Madame Flirte (861). There are two other Rouge G colors for the season, Madame Rêve (862) which you can see on Best Things In Beauty, and Madame Batifole (860). The former is a light pink while the former is fuchsia; I went with the sheer medium red of Madame Flirte, which is incredibly wearable for my medium olive skin tone. And besides, I adore red.
The swatch shows two coats of the lipstick, which is how I wear it. Like all Rouge G lipsticks, it has an incredibly luxurious formula with the perfect amount of slip and shine. The people of Guerlain say they use ruby powder to get this fine shimmer. I say "whatever". It's pretty, and Rouge G lipsticks are among the very best one can find. Some people dislike the heavy packaging and I don't blame them. It really is quite hefty, but I happen to love it: the case is easy to grab, has an excellent mirror and it's beautiful, even without Guerlain's Voilette de Madame special tulle print on the case.
If you're already a Rouge G fan, Madame Flirte is worth at least a try and probably the space in your makeup bag. If you're new to Guerlain lipsticks, this limited edition in the special case is not a bad place to start. For me? It's love.
Guerlain Madame Flirte Rouge G for Lipstick Fall 2013 ($49.50) is already at Neiman Marcus, in store and online, and will be arriving at other counters within days or weeks (depending on location).
