REVIEW! Gucci Luxurious Moisture Lipstick

Hi my lovelies! I wanted to share a quick review with you on Gucci's new Luxurious Moisture Lipstick in "Nude Satin". Gucci is well known for it's fragrances but the makeup line only launched on June 4, 2014. Their new cosmetics line consists of lipsticks, liners, glosses, eyeshadows, as well as nail and skin products.

I decided to dip my toe into the water and purchased the color "Nude Satin" in their new "Luxurious Moisture Lipstick" collection. There are two formulas, the "Luxurious Moisture Lipstick" and "Audacious Color Intense Lipstick".



I purchased mine from Neiman Marcus, but you can find their entire beauty collection on Gucci's website www.gucci.com. At a pricey $39.00 I wanted to make sure I got a color that I would wear often and chose the shade "Nude Satin", a neutral, medium pink shade.

First the packaging is just absolutely stunning! A sleek black tube with Gucci's logo on the lid and stamped into the gold interior bullet in a quilt-like pattern. Soooo pretty!!!

The minute I saw the shade I immediately thought "It's a dead ringer for NARS' "Audacious Lipstick" in the shade Anna". (Which I love!!!)  But that's where the similarities end. The Gucci formula has a creamy, satin finish. It is quite sheer and I had to go over my hand swatch several times to build the color.


(I apologize for the out of focus shot...dang shaky hands!)  I knew just by swatching it on my hand that it was going to be very difficult to build the color on my lips. It is super creamy, but also very sheer. Unfortunately it didn't show up on my lips at all. I wouldn't even call it a "my lips but better" shade because of how sheer it applied. However, it is extremely comfortable on the lips and it is quite moisturizing as well. It has a rather unpleasant scent (to me it seems to be almost a spicy "perfume-y" scent) and definitely an unpleasant taste. You do not want to lick your lips with this lipstick...trust me!

I don't hate this formula, I'm just not convinced that it is worth the steep $39.00 price tag. Maybe in a different shade it would have been better, but I don't think I can get over the taste. Blech!

This is just one product from the new Gucci makeup line and I do look forward to trying out some of their other products, but this lipppie just wasn't my cup of tea.
