For the record, I'm not going to comment on the packaging because this is not how the full-size packaging looks like but based on the description, the flip top applicator seems pretty cool. I got this mini lipstick as deluxe sample by redeeming my Sephora points for it, God knows how long ago that was. The good news is this shade is still available as part of the permanent line.
Coque D'Or is a warm red with subtle gold shimmers. I found the formula lightweight, comfortable, and moisturizing. It feels and look more like a gloss than a lipstick. I was actually surprised at how long it lasted, considering it felt really light. It wore up to 5 hours before it started fading and left a stain behind.
I'm wearing just one layer on the lip swatch but you can add another layer to build up the intensity of the color. Personally, I prefer to wear it sheer, like pictured. It has a perfumy makeup sort of scent that I find hard to describe.
Overall, really nice formula and good color payoff. Price is a little steep ($35.00) but what can I say, it's Guerlain.
Have you tried any color from the line? What's the most you'd pay for a lipstick?
