After the success of Rouge Automatique, Guerlain has launched a shiny version.
Shine Automatique comes in the same packaging as Rouge Automatique and retails for $35. There are 12 shades available:
200 Sous Le Vent
201 Vague Souvenir
220 Pour Troubler
221 Rouge De Damas
260 Jardin de Bagatelle
261 Rose Impérial
262 Extrait de Rose
263 A la Parisienne
264 Rose Pompon
265 Pao Rosa
I have tested several on-counter and to me it seems like an improver version of Kiss Kiss Shine (I loved those). Some shades come sheer (as it is to be expecteed), but some are so pigmented that they would comfortably fit into the Rouge Automatique Range.
The finish is shiny – the lipstick contains the shimmer which transforms to a watery effect /(as if your lips are wet).
They feel very comfortable on the lips. I’m definitely planning to add several of those to my collection. I have my eyes on the following shades:
#220 Pour Troubler, although I’m not sure I need another red after purchasing Rouge Automatique Rouge d’Enfer.
#240 Pamplelune. This one will almost 100% find the place in my collection.
#263 A la Parisienne. Another almost 100% sure addition to my collection.
There is a tie between #260 Jardin de Bagatelle and #261 Rose Impérial. I’ll probably add one of those too, when I see which looks better on my complexion.
