Gucci Beauty Rouge de Beauté Brillant Lipstick

Lip colour and lip care are housed in a gorgeous vintage-inspired case. Serving as an in-between for sheer and satin finish, this hybrid lipstick boasts a creamy texture and nourishing formula. Thomas de Kluyver, global make-up artist for Gucci Beauty, shares that all you need for the perfect application is a smooth glide on bare lips, straight from the bullet as the natural warmth of skin will melt alone the product onto the lips beautifully. 

However, for those who are not so comfortable without a guide, they can also try another of Gucci Beauty's make-up triumphs this year: the Crayon Contour des Lèvres, a soft, blendable lip contour pencil that glides across the mouth with ease for the ultimate precision finish. The perfect tool for clean lines and long-lasting colour, it can also be worn alone with similarly bold and intense colour results.
