Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick

Every once in a while, a cosmetic item becomes more than just something that you slap on your face, more than just the product inside. Every once in a while, a cosmetic item becomes an object of luxury itself. The Guerlain Rouge G lipstick is one such item.

About the size and weight with the design of a tiny pistol that a high flying superspy secret agent lady might carry, this thing feels more than substantial in your hands. Encased in chrome, the cap clicks open with two mirrors for easier application.

The case is a work of art, designed by the famed jewller Lorenz Baumer. The formula is creamy, smooth, with intense pigmentation that lasts for hours (through food). Greta is a deep cherry red that's dramatic without being too bright. Flattering on both warm and cool skin tones. $46 at Sephora.
