Guerlain Romance (601) Rouge Automatique Lipstick
Guerlain Romance (601) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Romance (601) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softened, light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish comprised of pink and white shimmer. MAC Haute Altitude is similar on, but it has a creamy consistency without shimmer. MAC Peach Blossom is sheerer and darker. Chanel Flirt is pinker. Guerlain Rose Desir is darker.

This shade was mostly opaque on the lips with a touch of lingering translucency–there are just hints of my natural lip color coming through and altering the color slightly. I’d expect if you had more natural pigmentation in your lip color, you’d see it get darker/redder.  Romance lasted for five hours, and it was hydrating, lightweight, and comfortable to wear.  The consistency of the formula is slick, creamy, but not thick, and goes on evenly. The lipstick range is violet-scented but has no discernible taste, and it is packaged in a tube that opens with a slider.

It's a pretty spring shade--not overly unique or special in color--but should be flattering and easy-to-wear on a variety of skin tones.

  1. I’m trying to decide between this and Rendez-Vous. Not sure which I like best, but I was definitely in the market for a cooler toned natural pink shade. This does look lovely…

    Ugh! Stupid frost! Love the color, HATE the finish.

  3. So pretty! It reminds me a bit of MAC Mellow Mood, which was unfortunately limited edition and I’ve almost finished mine so this could be a nice replacement. Only this one is a bit pricier.

    What a gorgeous color and it looks fabulous on you Christine!

  5. I seriously love this. It’s not too bright or pink and slightly warm and sheer! Perfect! :D

    Christine, how does this compare to rouge automatique Bal De Mai?

    LOVE this on you. I would definitely like to pick this up but it’s going to have to go on my wish list as Guerlain isn’t inexpensive. But, at the same time I think that the amount of time this would be in my collection would make up for the price since it’s likely to last a lot longer than some things (and I’ve paid a lot for glosses lol).

    • I know that if I ever redid my collection or had to start fresh (and forget that I’m a beauty blogger), the key philosophy I’d follow was: buy products you love and would use all the time. If it’s something I may only use a handful of times, spend less on it.

    I have Pink Truffle. I don’t need this. *repeats firmly* (We’ll see how long I hold out; I want Rendez-vous, too!)

  9. AwwRITE!

    So pretty!

  10. Michelle

    Looks so pretty on you, Christine. Way too frosty for me though.
