Gucci Moisture-Rich Lipstick in Flame
I was in Dubai last weekend and picked up some exciting make-up during my trip. I have been waiting to try Gucci's newly launched makeup line since last fall. So, I spent a fair bit of time at the Gucci make-up counters in the Gucci boutique as well as at Sephora at The Dubai Mall.
For me the Gucci make-up collection is all about glamour. The Italian brand has gone all out, launching with over 150 products including foundation, nail polish, eye shadows, mascara, lip gloss, eye liner, blush, brushes and lipsticks.
I tried on a lot of make-up and finally settled on the Gucci Moisture-Rick Lipstick in Flame. Believe it or not lipsticks are a new thing for me as until recently, I almost never wore any. You'd see me wearing lip gloss or lip balm on most days.
The Gucci Flame (#360) is the first ever lipstick I have worn in the orange colour family. The coral shade works really well with my tanned skin tone. The colour is super rich and the lipstick glides on with one clear swipe.
In the pictures, I am wearing no lip liner, just one coat of the saturated lip colour. As the name suggests, the feel is super smooth and leaves my lips feeling soft. The lipstick did not last all day and I did have to reapply it twice, but that is hardly a drawback for me. In general, I prefer applying lipsticks that are moisturising or have properties of a lip balm in them as opposed to the long lasting ones.
Given that this is Gucci's cosmetic line that we are talking about, the packaging is a star. The Double G logo is embossed on everything including the lipstick. Love the fact that once you remove the black casing a shiny gold casing is revealed. Simply Stunning!!!
The Moisture-Rich lipstick range has several other bold and nude colours, I wouldn't be surprised if these lipsticks become the highlight of the makeup range.
Some of the other products that I loved included the Gucci Golden Glow Bronzer in Indian Sand, Iconic Red Contouring Lip Pencil, Iconic Attanio Eye Shadow and Smoky Amethyst Magnetic Colour Shadow Quad.
