Gucci begins its beauty story from the lips. A lipstick is the ultimate makeup tool, its fascination and desirability a result of its instant transformative power. Gucci’s lipstick collections have diverse formulations: Rouge à Lèvres Satin with a satin finish, Rouge à Lèvres Voile with a sheer finish, Rouge à Lèvres Mat with a matte finish, Rouge De Beauté Brillant, a deeply moisturising, long-lasting and high shine finish, and Rouge À Lèvres Liquide Mat, a transfer-proof soft matte finish.

To create these lipsticks, Alessandro Michele was inspired by the made-up lips of Hollywood’s stars from the Golden Age, their lips expressing sensuality, charm and influence—sometimes within the same look.

“Lipstick is the most beautiful object you can find inside a handbag. It is the most fascinating because it has always had a beautiful scent—we made Gucci lipsticks perfumed with violet. Lipstick is a playful object because it recalls crayons that children colour with. Lipstick also symbolizes of the world of cinema, and all of the famous lips from Hollywood,” Alessandro Michele.
