GUERLAIN Rouge Automatique #143 Nahema Review and Swatch

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Guerlain Rouge Automatique are named for Guerlain’s famous fragrances. The lipstick comes in an ingenious, if a bit impractical package. The lipstick has no cap – by pulling a button, a lipstick bullet comes out. The packaging feels a bit flimsy – it is very light and fragile-looking. Sometimes I’m afraid I’m going to break it.

The lipstick contains 3,5 grams and retails for $35.

TEXTURE and COLOUR

Nahema is a true pinkish coral with bits of golden shimmer, which is not visible on the lips.

The texture is amazing: very light and moisturizing, and, at the same time, very pigmented. It wears for solid 5 to 6 hours. I think that Rouge Automatique is by far my favourite lipstick formula.

REVIEW

When I saw a promo for Rouge Automatique, I have made a list and Nahema was my first choice. however, later, the shade was listed among oranges, which put me off, as I cannot pull out orange lips.

In reality, the shade is very far from orange – it should be placed among reds or pinks – it is a true coral, just the way I like it. It really brightens up my face and makes me look fresh.

I have mentioned before that the texture and the wear are amazing. The formula is slightly similar to Rouge G le Brillant, but Rouge G le Brillant are less pigmented and they feel slightly heavy on the lips.

The only problem is the packaging. While it looks luxurious, it doesn’t feel so. The packaging gets into a way when applying the lipstick. To properly apply lipstick, you have to pull a lot of lipstick out. If you press too strong, you might break the lipstick bullet.

I can easily see this shade becoming one of my HG’s. I’m also looking forward to trying out some other shades.

When you pull the button on the top, the compartment cover starts to slide and the lipstick peeks out:
