Ever since I saw Temptalia’s swatches of Guerlain Rouge G in 14 Gillian, I have been in LOVE. It looks like the perfect pink nude for me, although it look brown in the tube when I went to check it out in the store.
I went to the MAC counter today to check out the latest holiday collection, Tartan Tale, as well as the new MAC Viva Glam lip set. I was able to try it on and I saw surprised at how similar Gillian looked to the new Viva Glam when the gloss was worn on top of the lipstick. It is a gorgeous mauve-nude with a hint of brown with gold shimmer.
Sorry for the shitty lip swatch, photo by Blackberry and lack of sleep causes a lot of problems to show up in photos >___> And no I am not wearing any makeup other than the lip stuff.
The only problem is this lip set costs about $50 in Canada after tax (ugh compared to $36 in the US!) so its almost the price of the Guerlain, so might as well buy the Guerlain. But the entire selling price (before tax) goes to charity, so that is a huge dilemma for me. Any thoughts?
