Guerlain Chant d’Aromes (103) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Chant d’Aromes (103) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm beige-brown with a lighter beige shimmer. The color coverage is mostly opaque. MAC Dressmaker, Dressmaker is similar but a little more orange and has less shimmer. MAC Viva Glam VI is a little redder but they look similar on my lips. Guerlain Grace is also similar but less warm. MAC Lush Amber is similar but less opaque.

Even though Rouge G still comes out on top as my favorite lipstick (just ever-so-slightly), Rouge Automatique is easily in my top ten (maybe top five even).  It’s long-wearing, lightweight, feels comfortable to wear, and the finish is always luminous, which gives lips a healthy, luscious look.  The wear is between four to eight hours, but Chant d’Aromes wears just over five for me when I trialed it.  The consistency is creamy enough to enable an easy glide across the lips, but it’s not so full of slip that it slides around the lips.  For more packaging photos, please see this post.

Chant d'Aromes

A
Rouge Automatique is a top-notch formula, because the creaminess of the texture enables it to glide on, making for an easy application, but it's lightweight and never slippery, so it stays on and wears for hours.

  1. Gosh! This lipstick color is the prettiest color ever! This is the 1st high-end lipstick that I actually really like!

  2. This is gonna be my baby soon. Been looking for Guerlain Automatique and this is the exact tone I can wear without feeling too over for daily make up

    This might be the “my lips but better” lipstick I have been looking for.However these colors have a tendency of looking weird on my lips.I will have to try and see if it works.
    I loved the blush on you,with this lipstick it looks even better:)

    What does it take for a product to get 5/5 on packaging? Just curious since I don’t know that I’ve ever seen you give a 5/5 on packaging! :)

    • It depends on the product – typically products do these things: 1) hold fingerprints, 2) are plastic, 3) bulky, 4) doesn’t survive dropping. Those three things aren’t weighed equally, and they can be overcome, but those just tend to be the main reasons why a product doesn’t get 5/5. 5/5 has to be functional, travel-friendly, durable, and droppable.

  6. Perhaps it’s just me, but Lush Amber looks much lighter than this.

  8. This looks really different on you! On me it’s a nude that doesn’t wash me out (which I love)!

    Every time you do a Guerlain post, I end up wanting the product…but it’s just like the Tom Ford deal, I can’t justify $35 on a lipstick. It’s just too much :(

  11. Wow. I can’t get over how awesome the color looks on you, Christine! Love it, but dang that is expensive.

  12. Coco
