Guerlain Pour Troubler (220) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pour Troubler (220) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright warm red.” It’s a rich, pinked ruby red with subtle ruby red and gold shimmer. MAC Scan-delicious is pinker. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is redder but still rather comparable. Dior Nocturne is darker and has more gold shimmer. Dior Technicolor Red is similar but doesn’t have gold shimmer.

The formula is touted as a “moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick [that] combines bold color with pearly particles.” The color coverage is nearly opaque with a subtle but noticeable underlying translucency. Guerlain absolutely nailed what it sparkle really means–the finish of this is luminous, glistening, and almost looks wet on the lips. It’s a gorgeous finish and look for summer in particular. Now, there are a lot of things to love about this lipstick, and as an avid fan of Guerlain’s lip products, I do, generally, like the formula, but I can always feel the sparkle whenever I press my lips together so it doesn’t seem quite as refined. There are a few stray sparkle particles that have traveled after I’ve worn one. Pour Troubler wears five hours, which is one of the longest wear-times I’ve achieved with this formula (I would disagree with Guerlain on its long-wearing claim).

It is nicely hydrating, though, which contributes to a comfortable feel on the lips, and the slip of the texture gives it an almost balm-like texture, but it’s a little creamier. It glides and applies really evenly and easily, but it’s likely one of the factors that makes this less long-wearing. It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.

    It looks pretty on you Christine ! I think the Rouges Automatiques Shine are really good, medium coverage but far much better than the Coco Shine or Dior Addict formulas. I bought Pour Troubler and Jardins de Bagatelle, many others look great, 12 shades it’s reasonable to start such a collection,
    Pour Troubler wears quite long without drying the lips which is a good point.

    This lipstick pairs so beautifully with your eye makeup! A whole face o’ Guerlain. Love it!

  3. I’m not usually one that goes for red lipsticks, but this one is so pretty! I don’t think Ive seen one quite like it! I might have to look into buying this one!

  4. freshpinklips

    I get a 90′s vibe from the color. 

  5. Love everything about this lipstick :)

  6. This is gorgeous on you, Christine, particularly with the eyeshadows! I doubt I need another red/pink lipstick, but this one is awfully lovely. I love the light shimmer in it! 

  7. looks superb on you..

  8. KatieSkoglund

    Love this!

    Aw, I guess I should’ve looked closer at this when I bought some Guerlain Rouge Automatiques.  I figured from the press release and the name that these were going to be a lot sheerer…and I really like the shade of this one.

  10. Ooooh, that is a gorgeous shade, and I am a complete sucker for anything sparkly.

  11. Hayley Chola Tompkins

    ADOPT ME.

    This reminds me of Chanel’s Triomphal lip gloss.

      I forgot to say thanks – I’m really interested in this line of lipsticks so its nice seeing the different shades being covered on Temptalia! 

  14. Gritty shimmer or not, I love this shade on you, Christine! :) I was expecting the Shine Automatiques to be quite a bit more sheer, just based on the name, so it’s great to see that Guerlain kept the pigment intensity around despite the finish. 
     
    (And what a finish! /swoons)

    I have a Shine Automatique in #263 (A La Parisienne) and it seems more sheer than this, I think. I love it, but I have to layer it a couple times to get the color depth I want, and I’m not sure it’s quite as sparkly as this one. Maybe I’m just not using the right lighting, though.

  16. Stunning red! it looked good on you.. Makes me think to grab one ahead, I hope it fits for warm toned.

  17. I don’t own any of the Guerlain lipsticks yet as I am just getting into more opaque lip colors–but this one is definitely a looker! I wish I had somewhere fancy to wear this–somehow it just doesn’t seem like it would feel comfortable or appropriate to wear something so bold and flashy for dinner and catching up on shows with my bf (pretty much the extent of my social activities these days!) :P

    Christine, will you be reviewing Pao Rosa? 

  19. really liking this and your eye makeup looks so nice! I wish I had the confidence to play with colour !
