Gucci Sally Soft Honey & Linnet Stone Brilliant Glow Care Lipsticks Review & Swatches



Gucci Beauty Sally Soft Honey (112) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a darker beige with warm, almost peachy tones paired with a glossy finish. It had more medium color payoff in a single layer, which built up to semi-opaque coverage with a second pass.

The texture felt more emollient and lightly slippery compared to other shades in the range, which resulted in slightly visible product settling into my deeper lip lines. It lasted well for three hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$42.00/0.06 oz. – $700.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to live between “sheer and satin lipstick[s]” with “long-lasting” hydration with “shine” that wears for “four hours.” They had a more gel-like consistency to me; denser and firm in the tube, but they glided on readily and had a glossy, wet-looking shine that was almost balm-like without being as slippery as a true balm consistency.

The pigmentation was sheer, as marketed, and most shades were somewhat buildable to more semi-sheer to medium coverage so those with more pigmented natural lip color may still find they show up enough. The colors applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with only a few shades settling into my lip lines noticeably.

They were comfortable to wear over the two to four hours they lasted for, and the formula felt hydrating over time. It is a heavily-scented floral formula that had a perfume-like taste to me when I wore them.

Gucci Beauty Linnet Stone (113) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which could be built up to medium coverage.

The texture was smooth, more like a gel-like cream than a traditional cream lipstick, so it glided across my lips comfortably but wasn’t too slippery and seemed to keep out of my lip lines. It wore well for three hours and felt hydrating while worn.
