Hello everyone, I’m sure you all know that Gucci kinda . . gave up on their makeup . . and somehow managed to return. So their new makeup range is a line of lipstick with 3 finishes. Each finish has a different packaging, and they are all super gorgeous.

First up is the Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick

Here’s the brand’s description: A vibrant collection of creamy, color-rich lipsticks with a long-lasting finish, the Rouge à Lèvres Satin lip color delivers bold pigment with an ultra-light and moisturizing feel that leaves lips smooth and soft. The first chapter in a new story for Gucci Beauty, born under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, a range of brilliantly colored shades are inspired by iconic Hollywood movies and characters from the gilded era. The bold color palette speaks to the eccentric and free-spirited mood of the House's collections—an unconfined and unlimited form of self-expression—with each lipstick encased within precious gold-toned packaging etched with an intricately engraved design.

  • Saturated with pigment for intense, long-wearing color

  • Moisturizing formula contains a mix of waxes and resin to grip the lips

  • Floral fragrance with violet notes and a soft, fruity scent

  • Inspired by the designs of vintage makeup, the lipstick is presented in a gold-toned tube etched with a decorative Art Deco influenced motif

  • The lipsticks within all of the collections can be layered and blended to create new colors and finishes

I bought 3 shades from this formula (this formula has the most shades available), and they are housed in a classic gold bullet with a matching gold cap.

The formula is a satin finish, comfortable on the lips. I feel like they are a tad sheerer than other brand’s cream lipsticks. See the swatches below.

Second, the Baume à Lèvres Lip Balm (Tinted Lip Balm)

Brand’s description: A collection of moisture-rich lip balms, the Baume à Lèvres gives lips a soft glow of color with three shades and a transparent formula that enhances the natural smoothness and texture of the lips, leaving them hydrated with a soft, comfortable feel. The first chapter in a new story for Gucci Beauty, born under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, the collection shades are inspired by iconic Hollywood movies and characters from the gilded era. The color palette speaks to the eccentric and free-spirited mood of the House's collections—an unconfined and unlimited form of self-expression—with each lip balm encased within precious gold-toned packaging topped with a lacquered turquoise colored tube.

  • Lightweight non-stick formula glides on smoothly for a moisturizing finish that delivers nourishing hydration

  • Floral fragrance with violet notes and a soft, fruity scent

  • Inspired by the designs of vintage makeup, the lip balm is presented in a precious gold-toned casing topped with a porcelain effect turquoise lacquered cover

  • The lipsticks within all of the collections can be layered and blended to create new colors and finishes

This formula is definitely a lip balm texture (the kind that you need to dig your fingers into a pot) and I accidentally scraped the side of it *cries* . The tint on 04 Penelope Plum is buildable. I was able to get my lips to look plummy with a thick layer of this. On the other hand, 02 No More Orchids was less visible. Scroll down for swatches.

Lastly, the Rouge à Lèvres Voile Lipstick. (sheer finish lipstick)

Here’s the brand’s description: A collection of moisture-rich lipsticks with a luminous shine, Rouge à Lèvres Voile delivers sheer color with an ultra-light and smooth feel. The first chapter in a new story for Gucci Beauty, born under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, a range of brilliantly colored shades are inspired by iconic Hollywood movies and characters from the gilded era. The bold color palette speaks to the eccentric and free-spirited mood of the House's collections—an unconfined and unlimited form of self-expression—with each lipstick encased within precious gold-toned packaging topped with a rose printed cover that recalls vintage prints from the 1950s.

  • Semitransparent color with luminous shine

  • Moisturizing formula glides on smoothly for a comfortable, lightweight finish

  • Inspired by the designs of vintage makeup, the lipstick is presented in a precious gold-toned casing topped with a porcelain effect ivory lacquered cover decorated with a delicate rosebud print

To me, this formula is also so so. I feel like its just another sheer lipstick in very pretty vintage packaging.
