OMG—We Can Now All Afford a Little Gucci with These $38 Lipsticks
Gucci, Gucci, Gucci: We never thought we'd be fanny pack people, until your $1,150 Marmont belt bag came into our lives. And don't even get us started on the horse-bit leather slides—they made flats cool again, and they're still the most worn mule in New York City (even at $695 a pop).
Hey, that's all well and good if you have *at least* $700 to drop on a whim. But we'd like to keep our emergency fund reserved for rooftop spritzes this summer. So what's a Gucci-loving girl to do?
Grab one of their newly relaunched lipsticks, which all retail for a *totally reasonable* $38. The actual tubes (complete with a weighted gold base and designs like pink rosebuds) are works of art dreamed up by creative director Alessandro Michele himself. But the formulas are the real stars: Rouge à Lèvres Satin has a creamy, satin finish with intense color payoff; Rouge à Lèvres Voile has a light, sheer finish; and Baume à Lèvres, is a lip balm with a translucent finish (for all us Chapstick devotees). Oh, and there's a grand total of 58 different colors to choose from. P.S. They're even violet-scented.
But the very best part? You can now grab them all at Saks. For $38. Thirty-eight-dollar Gucci, people. Get to it and shop all of them below.
Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick
The creamiest, most intense of the trio, Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick is long-lasting, lightweight and comfortable on lips. If you're looking for a true blue lipstick, this is the finish for you. With 36 rich colors from pinky nude to fiery orange to deep scarlet, there's a shade for everyone. Fun fact: Alessandro Michele etched the art deco cap design himself. See, masterpiece.
Gucci Baume à Lèvres Lipstick
Want a tiny bit of color and a lot of hydration? Pack this sheer lip balm in every single bag this summer. With four easy-to-wear shades (including a totally transparent formula), it leaves lips looking plump and moisturized with a soft hint of color.
Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Lipstick
Looking for something in between that has color payoff and a sheer finish? This is your formula. Thanks to natural oils, it's creamy and hydrating like the lip balm version, but it leaves a brighter veil of color behind. It can even be used on cheeks for a dewy monochromatic look.
