These lipsticks have a nice vanilla scent, similar to that of MAC lipsticks but a bit more sophisticated and not as overpowering. It feels so comfortable to wear. It has a glossy finish which is slightly moisturising. The texture feels like a second skin. Sometimes I notice that I can feel lipsticks on my lips but this just melts into your lips, like you're wearing a very light lip balm. The lipstick is made from a complex of oil & resin. This gives your lips an exceptional shine making them look very juicy. Normally with shiny lipsticks I find that the sheen tends to wear off before the colour does but these stay glossy for a decent amount of time.
It might seem like a gimmick but one of the things that drew me to this lipstick was the awesome packaging. Rather than the traditional lipstick bullet and lid, Guerlain have combined these elements to create a lid that is already built into the lipstick. See that little gold square emblazoned with a 'G'? Simply slide that down, the flap lid tucks itself under and out pops the lipstick! Its such a convenient idea, you'll never lose a lid again! It makes it perfect for speed application on the go.
I am so in love with this wonderful formula & the cool packaging. I can't believe I had never tried these lipsticks until now! At £24.50 they sure don't come cheap but if you're after a luxury lippie I'd recommend these over the YSL ones any day.
