Date:

Berry Alchemy (777)

Guerlain Berry Alchemy (777) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool, bluish undertones and a semi-matte finish.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable coverage
  • Lightweight, thin (but not clingy), more silicone-like glide
  • Applied evenly but emphasized texture slightly
  • Long-wearing (5.5 hours, plus stain) and non-drying (brand claimed 16-hour wear)

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

These are likely to be very similar shades based on our duping algorithm.

  • Bite Beauty Beetroot (P, $28.00).
  • Pat McGrath Wrecked (DC, $40.00).
  • Urban Decay Marfa (LE, $18.00).
  • ColourPop Doin’ Fine (LE, $7.00).
  • MAC Quelle Surprise (LE, $19.00).
  • Milani I Am Powerful (P, $6.99).
  • Fenty Beauty Loud Speak’r (LE, $20.00).
  • Too Faced Berry Naughty (DC, $22.00).
  • NARS Impulse (P, $26.00).
  • Tarte Yachting (P, $21.00).

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.12 oz. – $283.33 Per Ounce

The new finish is described as a “velvet matte” with “exceptional softness, color depth” and is “long-lasting” with “16-hour comfort and wear.” The color coverage is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and will “glide on effortlessly.”

The majority of the shades available were highly pigmented, as marketed, with even, smooth coverage that wasn’t prone to emphasizing lip texture, lines, or imperfections. The texture was smooth, moderately dense but not thick, so they felt lightweight on (but not clingy). Most of the shades–at the time of review–are more mid-depth or deeper, but the lightest shades I tested were a little prone to settling into my lip lines over time.

The big “downside” is that they don’t wear anywhere near 16 hours; that would be a tall ask for any lipstick formula, let alone a traditional, bullet formula like this one. They have longer wear than average with many shades achieving six hours of solid wear with slight stains left behind. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating overall.

They hare a floral scent that was noticeable applied to the lips, and I had slight taste of floral perfume when eating/drinking.

Please note, Rouge Gs are now refillable, so the price reflects the cost of the lipstick itself but not the lipstick holder (which is $37.50 and available in different designs). I personally keep mine with the refill-only cap, which is suitable for being kept at home but would not be ideal for someone who keeps it in their bag or travels frequently.
