Guerlain Chamade (164) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Chamade (164) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pink-coral with a creamy, luminous finish that just looks juicy on lips. The color coverage is mostly opaque but there’s a translucency to it that gives it the really shiny look. MAC Ultra Darling seems rather similar, perhaps just slightly less opaque. Chanel Phoenix is brighter, slightly pinker, and more opaque. Chanel Genial is brighter and more coral.

Milani Flashy Lip Flash Gloss Pencil

Milani Flashy Lip Flash Gloss Pencil ($6.49 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “hot pink with hot pink shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark raspberry fuchsia with fuchsia micro-glitter. The color coverage is mostly opaque but a hint of my lip freckle peeks through. The formula is supposed to be highly pigmented, extra glossy, and contain “moisture-rich” ingredients. It’s not supposed to feather or feel sticky either.

Guerlain Vega (125) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Vega (125) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened ruby red with subtle ruby red micro-shimmer and a cool undertone. The shimmer is so fine that it makes the finish appear more like a traditional cream, but it adds extra reflection and gives lips a more luminous look. The color coverage is mostly opaque. Guerlain Liu is pinker and a bit darker. NYX Chic Red has more of a semi-matte finish and appears slightly cooler toned. Guerlain Garconne is redder, less blue-based.

Chanel Rebelle Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rebelle Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-opaque red-coral with a healthy shine. It has warm undertones, but they’re subtle and come from the pink-red hue, rather than orange, so it should work on both cooler and warmer complexions. Guerlain Bal de Mai is similar but more opaque, less red. MAC Hibiscus is more orange. Bobbi Brown Guava and Chanel Flamboyante are brighter.

Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick

Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich coral-brown with a natural sheen and hint of shimmer. It’s more of a muted coral that doesn’t have the level of warmth that many corals have. Dior Versailles has a similar coral-brown-like base, but it has a lot of golden shimmer, so it appears lighter. MAC Mellowarm is reminiscent of this shade but with more orange. Cle de Peau #114 is slightly more orange, but it’s somewhat similar. Burberry Blush is pinker.

Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a ruby-shimmered blue-based red with a subtle pinkness. The color payoff is mostly opaque, but there’s an underlying sheerness that gives it a translucent look. It’s pinker than MAC Prolong. Chanel Byzantin is darker, redder. Dior Technicolor is slightly darker. Guerlain Girly is pinker, less red. Estee Lauder Wild Violet is a touch purpler. MAC Perpetual Flame is slightly less red.  Guerlain’s Rouge Automatiques are supposed to have subtle sheerness–that translucency is part of the formula (it reminds me of jelly nail polishes).
