My Experience with Gucci Audacious Color-Intense Lipsticks:

Bitter Grape 240 : is a beautiful grape purple color with bluish sheen to it.

Rose Dragée 040 : is a stunning rose brown color with goldenish sheen. It could be a lovely MLBB shade for for a whole lot of people with medium to dusky skin tones. It’s a lovely n*de that does not make your look pale or washed out.

  • The texture is thin and very lightweight. I like to layer on my lipsticks so no matter how many times i swipe these lipsticks on my lips they don’t feel heavy or cakey.
  • The slight micro shimmer in the lipsticks gives a lovely sheen to the lipsticks.
  • The lipsticks are suuuuper hydrating.
  • Both the lipsticks neither smudged not smeared. I didn’t notice them settling in fine lines as well.
  • One swipe gives an opaque coverage. Both of them are very pigmented. You can totally build up the color as well.
  • The staying power of the Bitter Grape lipsticks is around 6 hours and it leaves a lovely deep pink stain behind. The staying power of Rose Dragée lipstick is around 4 hours and it pretty much disappears after that. But I love both the colors equally. 🙂
  • Both lipsticks transfer easily but still stay put pretty well.
  • The packaging is classic and has an old world charm to it. It’s black and gold from the outside. The lipstick tube has Gucci’s double ‘G’ logo engraved all over.
  • These have a powdery fragrance (which apparently is a Blue Chocolate fragrance. I have no clue what that is) but they also have a weird soapy taste to them. It is not too strong for me and it fades away after a while. Honestly, it does not bother be until I am like literally licking my lips. But it could be bothersome for some people. If you ask me, I don’t think a taste such as this should have been there for such a high end lipstick.

Overall, I absoluuutely love these lipsticks. They almost feel nothing on lips and are so hydrating. The color selection is beautiful. I have been using some of them so much that the engraved ‘G’ on top of the lipsticks has completely disappeared. 😀 Definitley worth having one or two in your kitty. 🙂

Regarding being the best in the luxury segment? Well, someone has to work reallllly hard to beat Tom Ford lipsticks.

This is such a beautiful color and looks fab on you. And yes the nu*e shade did not wash you out at all. It is kind of tough getting right nude shade for paler Indian complexion.

  7. The lipsticks are so tempting…the texture…packaging..everything is amazing…and above all your FOTD….waiting for your other reviews eagerly… 🙂

  8. I had seen those epics on FB and wanted to know the lip colour…now i do! Loved the Grape shade – Its so pretty and looks fab on you. You carry off the Rose shade well too, but you know me, n*des aren’t my cup of tea! So badly want to get my hands on Gucci…a long wait ahead…

    1. i know . I hope you do get hold of these soon. I am liking all the products so far. Let’s see. :)) a little disappointed about the taste part though… still like these. :)) thank you 🙂

  9. Both shades look absolutely perfect on you. The tube is utterly classy, the engraved ‘double G’ stole my heart. I loved the Rose dragee shade a lot 🙂

  10. Rati….u look fab as always…can u suggest me an eye shadow for that natural no makeup look….Are u wearing any eye shadow in the cozy purple sweater pic….

  11. I’ve never ever ever bought a dark purple lipstick because I always thought they looked hideous. But now I am changing my mind, they are very pretty. Actually I liked the my lips but better shade when I looked at the lipsticks but I have to say that the purple suited you much better. Btw..does it have tiny glittery particles in it?
