Swatches ~ Gucci Cosmetics Electric Crimson Lipstick

Gucci Electric Crimson Lipstick

Gucci has just launched it's cosmetics line and the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! I was happy to purchase the Gucci Cosmetics Electric Crimson Lipstick. I always wondered what color Crimson was, it's a mixture between red and orange and slightly closer to orange I would say.  It's almost the exact color on the website and actually, I thought it would look a lot lighter on me than it does.

The Gucci Cosmetics Electric Crimson Lipstick cost $36 and I feel it falls well within the range of the high-end designer brands such as Dior, Chanel, YSL and Armani.  Tom Ford lippies cost $50 which sort of falls out of the high-end category and into the luxury catagory in my opinion.

As far as application, it has a very creamy texture and glides on without leaving any streaks or lines.  Although I tend to wear a lip primer because my lips has aging lines that I try to conceal, I wasn't wearing one in this photo.  However,  I do like the feel of this lipstick and how soft it feels on my lips... not drying at all.

In my opinion, the price is a little steep for my comfort zone so I would probably search for dupes in brands such as MAC, NARS and Urban Decay.  I'm not a lipstick lover like I used to be before I retired, now I prefer lip glosses with hints of color to wear around the house or while out running errands.
