Review : Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Lipstick in GRENADE

This is a second addition to the amazing collection of the uber-luxurious Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain lipsticks that I purchased from Guerlain. Please do read the Primary Review which talks and highlights the essential points about this fantabulous lipstick.

The second lipstick in the collection is lets have a looksie at this lovely all year round color.


Grenade has a more sheer finish but great color pay off and wear compared to other colors. This is more day wear lipstick but can be used to amplify and compliment smokey eyes in jewel tones or cooler colors. This is a glossy version of Rouge G and really pretty. The silvery pink micro shimmer creates a bedazzling effect on the lips and has a watery effect on application.

The hyaluronic acid beads swell up and minimize appearance of fine lines in the lips. This is a long wearing formula and usually should stay fresh for 4-5 hrs for a lipstick like that. For 3.5 gm its a smidgen less than the normal lipstick bullet of 4 gms but since its so luxurious, that rarely affects the purchase.


Grenade is rosy raspberry pink with silvery pink shimmer. Since the formula is satiny and smooth on application, it has a glossy feel on the lips. The shimmers is micronized and does not feel gritty on the lips. Also the high shine limits the use of a gloss and looks really pretty. This pink has a subtle warm tone so can flatter any complexion. 

In the bullet, the lipstick looks quite a cooler berry tone but on application becomes a bit warmer and rosier. The formula is plush and luxurious to feel and smooth on application. Just one layer is enough to get a full coverage and this lipstick does not need too much building and layering up.


  • I suggest using it directly from the bullet.
  • Dabbing with a lip brush or fingers helps the formula shine better rather that spreading it side wards. 
  • Over a lip liner this color would be much more long lasting and any nude or light pink liner would prevent bleeding and increase the longevity of the lipstick.
  • A nude or clear lip balm or lip primer would not only make the lipstick long lasting but also give luscious appearing lips.
  • Layering a gloss is optional. In case a gloss is needed, then a shiny one should be opted than a shimmering shade.
Hope you liked the lipstick. Do let me know in the comments. I shall soon be making posts with eye makeups where I would be suggesting usages of this lipsticks and the rest of them.
