Guerlain Nahema (143) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Nahema (143) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant coral-pink with subtle gold shimmer and a natural shine. This is the type of shade that always seems to garner compliments, even though there are a fair amount of shades that can be found in the same family. Guerlain Chamade is redder. Guerlain Bal de Mai is a bit darker and less coral. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker and brighter. NYX Haute Melon is a bit lighter. MAC Hibiscus is more orange. Laura Mercier Tangerine is lighter and less pink. Chanel Phoenix is much pinker. Chanel Genial is similar but doesn’t have the shimmer. Korres #18 is pinker. MAC Fresh Salmon is more golden and sheerer.

Nahema yields opaque color coverage and has a creamy, glide-on consistency that feels comfortable to wear but not slippery.  I tested this shade’s wear, and I was able to get five hours of wear.  By the sixth hour, I felt like I needed a reapplication.  One of my favorite characteristics of this formula is the luminous finish; it’s shiny without being overly glossy, and the shine lasts for at least half as long as the color itself does.  For more packaging photos, please see this post.

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.

    Thank you for the review! The color looks great on you! Can you tell me, how it compares to Chanel Rouge Coco Chalys?

  2. Sanna

    Looks fantastic on you, Christine! How does it compare to MAC Flamingo? (I wanted Flamingo, but it was sold out everywhere, so this one could be an alternative).

  3. Manderlay

    Uh? Could it be you have blush only on one cheek? :D

  4. I NEED THIS NOW! Nooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww

  5. I saw this one in Sephora and I was so tempted – now seeing it on you, I want it even more. This is such a beautiful color!

  6. The shade looks fresh and summery!

  7. Julieanne

    Hi, love your blog.

    You mean that it’s similar to “Watch me Simmer,” not “Quick Simmer” right?

    Thanks for all the helpful posts. Love this color on you.

  8. This color looks so good on you! I feel like I say that all the time haha…How lucky you are that EVERY lip color suits you! Gorgeous x

  9. Nickie

    Um, is it just me or did you stop having the “Love it, Leave it” buttons? Just curious. :) I haven’t seen them in a while, but maybe I just missed something. >_>

    The color looks really good on you, btw! ^_^

    Hi Christine..:) Maybe you meant to say MAC Watch me Simmer?
    Anyway this is beautiful!:)

    This along with Feur de Feu happen to be my Guerlain RA first purchases. I later bought Bal de Mai. But I love all three – but I use them very rarely , since I live in India and can’t repurchase :(.

    I have this but it doesn’t show up as nice on my pigmented lips! still its a beautiful summer colour!

  13. Ha! Cute cheek swatches, Christine :P

    I absolutely love this lipstick on you – it looks so very spring. I wish I could pull of corals half as well as you! ;o)

  14. Mary

    This shade looks so pretty on you! How do you think it would look on someone with a very pale complexion? I’m always looking for a pretty coral-y pink color and can never find one that I can pull off with my paler than pale complexion. Love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipsticks, one of my favorite formulas!

  15. I really love this colour, it’s so bright and fun! *Runs to the store*

  16. Nicki

    Yayyyyyy!!!! You always swatch the lipsticks I’m debating on getting, then your review always makes me even more positive that I want it!!!! Thanks for awesome swatches and reviews<3

  17. Venice

    I love it! Im actually looking for the perfect peachy pink shade! and THIS.IS.IT! Thanks Christine!

  18. Nice color, I think it wouldve been more up my alley if it were more opaque. Still a lovely color.

  19. vina

    There are two different colors on ur cheek,right?

    this one settles a bit but looks gorgeous from afar

  21. Joan

    Christine,
    You can really rock the bright colors! So pretty on you.

  22. Viv

    I bought this on-line (no Guerlain counter for miles around here :(), and initially thought it was too bright, but it goes on beautifully, and is my first choice lippie at the moment! Love the mechanism too!

  23. Wow, this is gorgeous! I just can’t spend that much on a lippie though. Insane!

  24. Natt

    really want to try this.
    However here in Thailand, it’s around 47 US$ more expensive than Chanel.
