Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a ruby-shimmered blue-based red with a subtle pinkness. The color payoff is mostly opaque, but there’s an underlying sheerness that gives it a translucent look. It’s pinker than MAC Prolong. Chanel Byzantin is darker, redder. Dior Technicolor is slightly darker. Guerlain Girly is pinker, less red. Estee Lauder Wild Violet is a touch purpler. MAC Perpetual Flame is slightly less red.  Guerlain’s Rouge Automatiques are supposed to have subtle sheerness–that translucency is part of the formula (it reminds me of jelly nail polishes).

Rouge Automatique is very comparable to the Rouge G formula, and the differences are minute, though they are there. This is an excellent formula regardless of that comparison, though, because it’s creamy enough to glide on but not so creamy that the color slips around, comfortable to wear, and keeps lips feeling hydrated, too. For more packaging photos, please see this post.  L’Heure Bleue wore for six hours and left a soft stain behind.
