Guerlain Vega (125) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Vega (125) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened ruby red with subtle ruby red micro-shimmer and a cool undertone. The shimmer is so fine that it makes the finish appear more like a traditional cream, but it adds extra reflection and gives lips a more luminous look. The color coverage is mostly opaque. Guerlain Liu is pinker and a bit darker. NYX Chic Red has more of a semi-matte finish and appears slightly cooler toned. Guerlain Garconne is redder, less blue-based.

Guerlain is a brand that knows how to create a lipstick formula. Though my very favorite formula remains its luxurious Rouge G, the newer Rouge Automatique is extremely comparable. I find Rouge Gs wear just a smidgen longer, feel the tiniest bit more hydrating, and the color range more nuanced–but these differences are minute. Rouge Automatiques wear from four to eight hours, depending on the color. Rich shades like Vega wear a solid six hours or longer and leave a soft stain behind even as they begin to fade. The formula is creamy and soft without feeling slippery or like it’s melting; it glides onto lips easily and deposits good color coverage in one pass. For more packaging photos, please see this post.

The Products That Changed the Life of my Hair

By Leili, Hair Care Contributor

Leili is a 19-year old New Yorker who is obsessed with beauty, chocolate, and celebrity of the trashiest kind. Her drawers look like the stockroom of a hair salon! She’s currently enrolled in her second year of college but still trying to decide on her major. When she’s not worrying about that, she’s either at home with a good book, baking scrumptious goodies for her family, or exploring new restaurants with her friends. Check out her blog, Materialistic Musings!


The Products That Changed the Life of my Hair

I’m not someone who takes the term “life-changer” lightly, which is why my post references so few things. There are certainly products I love (with a particular emphasis on hair oils and deep conditioning treatments) but for me to claim that something has changed my life, it has to be truly spectacular like what you’ll see here. But don’t take my word for it—try them out for yourself!

Just to recap, my hair is long, extremely oily at the roots, dry at the ends, and reasonably thick and wavy though I don’t have much of it!

Check out four life-changing hair products for long, thick hair!

Video Review: Chanel Knightsbridge Collection – First Impressions & Swatches

This video takes a look at Chanel’s Knightsbridge Collection, which is a chanel.com exclusive launch that includes three new and limited shades of Rouge Allure Lipsticks, one new and limited edition Glossimer, and one new and limited edition Highlighting Powder & Blush. My favorite product was definitely Kensington, and my least favorite was Chelsea. The powder is pretty but wasn’t impressive enough to merit the heartbreaking price tag for me.
