Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant coral.” It’s a semi-opaque coral-pink with warm undertones and a dusting of fine gold shimmer. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is slightly pinker. NYX Haute Melon is similar; a smidgen lighter, no shimmer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is very similar, bu8t more opaque and less pink. Chanel Coquette is lighter and has pink shimmer. NARS Niagara is very similar but doesn’t have as much shimmer. MAC Crosswires is a bit more orange.

The formula is touted as a “moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick [that] combines bold color with pearly particles.”  This shade has semi-opaque color coverage; it gives lips noticeable color, but some of the natural lip color still comes through (you’ll notice you can see my lip freckle, but it’s muted).  The formula is comfortable to wear, lightweight, and incredibly shimmery, sparkling, and all-around stunning when worn. Depending on your sensitivities, I can feel the micro-sparkle when I press my lips together, which I don’t love.

While it’s moisturizing and always leaves my lips feeling better than they began, it’s not a long-wearing product for me. Pamplelune lasts about four hours, which is average for most lipsticks.  The Rouge Automatique is definitely truer to the long-wearing claim.  Shine Automatique has a more balm-like texture, so it has more slip and slide, which means it feels great when applied and after, but it doesn’t last as long.  It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.

    gorgeous color!

  2. moena

    It felt nice, but I was disappointed in how sheer it was and how it just turned pink on me. I wanted an orange-coral with more oomph.

       @moena i have guerlain 141 Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete and it’s a more orange coral for sure! it also has staying power. wearing it right now!

  3. Rita

    OMG! Does Guerlain Pamplelune exist in lipstick form too!? I guess it does not smell greipefruit :)

  4. Pamela

    Nice, but not for $35!  Especially since there are dupes.

  5. This is an absolutely STUNNING color! I love it, but I’m a little worried about spending that kind of money on a lipstick that won’t last very long on my lips…I might just be okay with it for that color, though!

  6. Ooh! This is so cute – I love that it’s a bit pinky, rather than a really yellowy-orange. 

  7. Virginia G

    If you have pigmented lips like me, skip it. Only the glitter showed up on my lips. I’ve been so disappointed with the entire Shine line, which is surprising because Guerlain is usually so great.

  8. omg, I want this SO badly right now. It’s the perfect amount of sheer and is the absolute PERFECT color for summer (in my opinion). I want want want this—and it will be my first Guerlain Shine Automatique purchase!

  9. Les dessous de Marine

    It looks just awesome *__*

  10. for awhile I really really liked a sheerer lip colour, but I feel I am over it.  On my lips, they all end up looking pretty much the same.

  11. Jules

    How does this lipstick compare to Benefit’s Saucy lipstick?

  12. Anupam

    Christine , is it comparable to MAC See Shear in color??

  13. Ashley Sarah

    I really love the shade, though I personally wouldn’t be purchasing it. I am surprised how the color comes out on the skin compared to the tube. I think I’ll check out NYX Haute Melon Round Lipstick though!
