Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich ruby red with a subtle sheen. The color coverage is nearly opaque, and it has delicate layer of micro-fine ruby shimmer strewn through the color. It’s a blue-based red, but there is a hint of pink in the base, too, which keeps it from leaning too far on the cooler-toned end of the spectrum. Rouge d’Enfer wore for six solid hours and made it fairly well to the seventh hour, too.

The formula is creamy without being thick or heavy, and it is actually a moisturizing formula. It’s soft and feels like silk when applied. I find these comparable to the Rouge G lipstick, though not as thick or as opaque, but still similar enough. They’re $11 cheaper than the Rouge Gs, and the colors still have the same depth and nuanced shade range that makes Guerlain lipstick always standout to me. To see more photos of the packaging, check out this post. I did not have any issues with the slider of this particular shade!

Chanel Byzantin is similar but a touch pinker. Burberry Hibiscus is quite similar but perhaps a little lighter.

Guerlain Rouge d'Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

A+
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.

  6. red is simply your best color…you rock it Christine..:)

  7. ugh I need to make my way over to sephora and buy me some of these! I have never owned a red lipstick… ever.

  8. Chelsea

    Christine, in your opinion how does this compare to Chanel Dragon. I know its a cream texture, but color and wear?

  9. Gorgeous! I feel almost like there’s something “soft” about this shade – it makes me think of gauzy layers and diffused light for some reason :)

  10. Violet

    Ohhh yeah, so getting this.

  11. That is gorgeous on you! I can’t believe I haven’t tried this formula yet!

  12. It’s been a few years since I’ve used anything from Guerlain, but I love the scent of their products. Your review sounds excellent; I think I’m going to have to buy this now!

  13. Oh man, if I didn’t have Chanel Byzantin already I’d be all over this color!

  14. Vanessa Riese

    chanel byzantine looks so much better and brighter! plus dont mean to be a drag but it makes your eyes look red!

  15. One of the best red on your lips !!!
    See you from south of France ! ;)

    Love your reviews! Looks stunning with your coloring! In the picture where you show bare lips, lips with color, then a full face photo, your lips look more polished / smooth / professional in the full face photo. Do you apply something over your lipstick to achieve that finish? TY!

  17. Amy

    Your eyeshadow looked so pretty swatched around this time! Do you think its the remnants (aside from the lips, of course – ) of this look?
