Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant coral-red with gold and copper micro-shimmer. It’s mostly opaque on lips, but you can see my lip freckle peeking through–from afar, it appears more opaque. I can see this working really well in the summer–so good thing this is part of the permanent range.  This particular formula is supposed to be semi-opaque to opaque in color, so Coque d’Or is right on target.

CoverGirl Enthrall is more like a red-orange (at best, orange-coral). MAC Hibiscus is more of an orange-coral (but not red like Enthrall). Guerlain Bal de Mai is almost like a more muted version of this, actually! Chanel Flamboyante is not as dark and doesn’t have the gold shimmer, but the color is similar. MAC Rose Maiden has a frostier finish and isn’t as dark, but it is also similar.

Rouge Automatique is very comparable to the Rouge G formula, and the differences are minute, though they are there. This is an excellent formula regardless of that comparison, though, because it’s creamy enough to glide on but not so creamy that the color slips around, comfortable to wear for the six hours this shade wears, and keeps lips feeling hydrated, too.  For more packaging photos, please see this post.

Coque d'Or

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. The sheerness makes it so much more wearable! Gorgeous shade!

  2. Ess

    hi christine! how does this compare to dior’s belle de nuit? :)

  3. I said, “At least look at the lipstick on Christine. Anything that she looks good in, I’ll look good in.” It looks good on you, so…. By the way, what foundation are you wearing? November and December are the months when I refresh my personal foundation and those in my kit. I’m always willing to put down a lot, because a flawless finish makes both me and my clients happy. Since I’m ordering the lipstick soon – because it looks good on you – please tell me which foundation you’re wearing.

  4. love this! i absolutely adore these lipsticks! I have three already!

  5. Stacey

    This is one of my go to red lips. I adore everything about this lipstick!

  6. anne

    Ooooooooooooooooooooh! Pretty. Want! Expensive.

  7. This is so beautiful! Looks like a great, wearable red! I wouldn’t mind giving this a try if I could afford it!

  8. baby in a corner

    I’ve been lusting after this for ages – thinking it could make a wearable xmas red!

  9. Why don’t I own this yet? ;)

  10. Caroline

    That is a seriously nice shade! I just love Guerlain.

  11. Gina

    This is so pretty! Unfortunately, I’m saving up for my first Rouge G (Gigolo) ;)

  12. artemis

    looks pretty…like a lipstick have from maybelline. but both got shimmer :)) tho it looks ok

  13. Becca

    I just got this lipstick and I LOVE it. It is one of the few reds I can wear and not look ridiculous (I am blonde and VERY pale-skinned). What pencil would you suggest with it? I generally like a very low-key or classic look. BTW you look beautiful in this shade!!
