Five ‘o’ clock shadow

I’ve had this Guerlain Rouge L’Extrait for a couple months now, and other than taking pictures of it in flowers, I hadn’t done much with it until recently. It’s described as a slightly matte combination between a lipstick and a gloss, which sounds about right to me.

Guerlain Rouge L’Extrait Luxure M27

All I really want to talk about when it comes to this pretty is the case. Can we talk for a moment about the case? From the closed position you pull the shorter end with the logo and the top part flips up to reveal a double sided mirror that you can use to apply the lipstick. This case is giving me old world glamour, MacGyver and Bond leading lady all in one sophisticated package. Just imagine yourself whipping this pretty out of your fabulous clutch on a date.

I’m pretty sure I picked up Luxure M27 because I saw someone looking fabulous in it online.

Staying true to our committment here at ofthecomely to “keep it real”, this is what it looks like in a picture taken after work, in a room with the worst possible lighting. On my screen it looks like it leans more toward orange, however in person I think it’s more of a true red.

Let me know if you’ve tried this one or any others from the Guerlain L’Extrait line.

Anyone remember MacGyver? That was my show.

    You are so beautiful!! That lipstick case is something to desire and it does look orange in the picture but it still looks lovely. That brand is too expensive for my pocketbook. Lol! Oh yes, that was my show too! 🙂

      Thank you so very much. You are too sweet :0. I say we start a petition to bring MacGyver back.
