Lipstick Friday - Guerlain Rouge Gigolo

 I've only started using Guerlain lipsticks recently as I've always had the idea that Chanel had the best lipsticks, unfortunately for them I was looking for a raspberry/dark coloured lipstick in which they didn't have. Just so you also know when I pick lipsticks I go through a tedious selection process that generally takes a few trips back and forth. I ended up going through the entire make up section to pick no. 70 Gigolo which was a nice dark berry colour and I loved it because wasn't too glossy but not completely matte.

Before applying your lipstick line and fill your lips with the selected lip liner and it acts like a primer filling in the lines on your lips to prevent 'bleeding' and provide a waxy base to make your lipstick last longer. This was one of my favourite buys when I was in the airport because I had trouble finding a lip liner for my new lipstick and next thing you know voila Dior had one that can go under them all! I'm a big user of lip liner cause they provide a lasting base for my strong coloured lipsticks so I was glad I now didn't have to buy different colours for different shades of lipstick.

When I first opened it I was completely in love with the casing! It was polished and shiny and a mirror popped up when you slide it out a little so that you can atually reapply it anywhere

I was very happy with the colour which was deep and intense and the lipstick kept my lips moist and plump for a really long time, almost like a lip balm. The only time I really had to reapply was after I ate or after approximately 8 hours where I had to touch-up the corners of my lips. I did end up getting another colour from Guerlian but I'll save that for another Friday ;)
