Guerlain Flirt (761) Shine Automatique Lipstick
Guerlain Flirt (761) Shine Automatique Lipstick

A Bold Shade for Spring

Guerlain Flirt (761) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a fuchsia-berry with iridescent fuchsia shimmer. Clinique Grandest Grape is redder and doesn’t have shimmer. MAC Rebel is nearly identical in color but doesn’t have the fuchsia shimmer. Guerlain Guet-Apens is redder, less berry. Guerlain Nuit d’Amour is a bit darker, redder, less shimmery.

The Shine Automatique formula is supposed to be long-wearing, hydrating, and contain “pearl particles to give lips discreet yet exceptional shine.” Flirt is mostly opaque on lips, and it has a thin, balm-like consistency that glides easily across lips and never pulls or drags.  The thinner texture, though, means the sparkle is very slightly noticeable after a few hours of wear.  It deposits even color that lasted for six and a half hours on me. I didn’t have any issues with the dark berry color feathering or bleeding along the edges of my lips.  The formula is comfortable to wear, long-wearing, and moisturizing both during and after wear.  It is violet-scented but has no discernible taste, and it comes in a slide-up tube.

For those who are less enthused by pastel lip colors for spring, Guerlain's Flirt will be a nice alternative.

    What foundation and powder are you wearing? Gorgeous!

  8. I’ll stick to MAC Rebel and avoid triggering my shimmer anxiety, lol. Really pretty, though!

    Ohhhh, I love this. Hope it looks as good on me as it does you.

    I need this lipstick. I feel like it was made for me.

    I’ve never tried a Guerlain lipstick. This colour is so pretty but is it just me or does the lipstick bullet look really small? Or is it the angle of the picture? =S Kind of turns me off this product anyway.

    This is seriously gorgeous.

    My Guerlain SA has been wearing this for the past several days. Her coloring is similar to yours. She sheers it out more than you do. It looks much pinker on her. I like how you wear it better, brighter red.

  14. Oh my! I love that! It’s so me! I may have to invest in that… I’ve never had a Guerlain lipstick though- are they worth the money in your opinion Christine?

    Oh, and when you say “Violet Scented” do you mean like Parma Violets (you do get those sweets in the US right?!) or just like the flower?

    I haven’t seen a dupe for this, and it’s the fuchsia shimmer that really closes the deal for me, so anything similar without that is a no-go to me!

    Holy cow that is gorgeous. Do you use a lip liner?
