For me, holiday seasons have always been all about limited edition products in special sets in awesome value prices--until I came across Guerlain's Winter Fairy Tale Collection for Holiday 2015. I was particularly drawn to Guerlain's Meteorites Perles des Neiges and Rouge G, and both were definitely not something I would characterize as being reasonably cheap. And most importantly, both of them were already sold out everywhere. Nowhere could I get my hands on them, and on those rare instances when the Rouge G actually did come back in stock and I triumphantly placed my order, it was canceled. My "want" soon turned into a "need" and after multiple attempts and same disappointing results, my order somehow did go through and here it is in all its glory to reflect my insane obsession. The last time I obsessed this much over a product was Laura Mercier's Rose Rendezvous, and that was in 2011!

So here's Guerlain's Rouge G in Merveilleux Rose 867 ($55). Merveilleux Rose is a perfect rosy pink lipstick that would flatter all skin tones. Given the price, I had high expectations for the formula of this lipstick, and this actually exceeded my expectations! I am too lazy to exfoliate my lips on a regular basis, but even when my lips are on their most flaky condition imaginable, this applies flawlessly, hiding away all the imperfections and at the same time hydrating my lips like butter! Some people might find the scent of Guerlain's lipsticks unpleasant but personally it gives me that extra luxurious vibe and I like it!

And can we just take a moment to look at the packaging? I am well aware that Guerlain does not offer refills for their lipsticks and it's a shame, but I will be sure to use all of my brain power to figure out how to reuse this as it is a perfect accessory to every purse (If you know of a way I could reuse the packaging for this lipstick, please let me know!!)

Although I do not know of any stores that sell Rouge G in this particular holiday packaging at the moment, do check out Guerlain's Rouge G Lipsticks as even the regular packaging is such a heartbreaker.

What was your most splurge-worthy beauty product of last year? Please share in the comments below! :)

  1. To be honest, I didn't splurge on a makeup item last year. Yes, I did buy a foundation and some other bits and bobs, but nothing as noteworthy or cute in packaging as your lipstick. I focused on skincare and blog equipment with my expenses.

    1. That sounds like something I should start doing as I've been slacking off somewhat on skincare lately!!

  2. I bought a similar Guerlain lipstick but without the floral pattern for my mum's birthday once and it was such a gorgeous one. It made her day but I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend that much on a lipstick for myself. LOL!

    1. I know right?! I honestly didn't care so much for the lipstick color itself but bought it only because of the packaging--AND was really surprised by how much I loved the color too!!

  6. The snowflake patterns are so pretty; the lipstick packaging is so unique looking! The colour is also really pretty and something I'd wear everyday! I usually can't decide- to splurge on a luxurious special colour; or get a everyday normal colour?!
