Guerlain Extrait de Rose (262) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Extrait de Rose (262) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia pink.” It’s a brightened medium pink with silver and fuchsia sparkle. Revlon Lollipop is much more fuchsia and brighter. MAC Pink Burst is similar but a bit brighter. Chanel Belgravia is lighter. It’s almost a neutral pink; it’s very subtly cool-toned, but the brightness counteracts that so it should be wearable across many skin tones.

The formula is supposed to be moisturizing, long-wearing, and full of shine. It’s supposed to be the “sheer and sparkling side” of the Rouge Automatique range, which has a more subdued finish and more opaque color. It is very reminiscent of Guerlain’s Rouge G de Brilliant formula, actually–but with more color payoff.

The sparkling shimmer in Extrait de Rose is fantastic; it looks wet and glistening and eye-catching on the lips. It really is stunning, and it’s something that’s worth seeing in person for that effect alone. It’s reminiscent of Chanel’s Glossimers in that half of what is so appealing is hard to capture in a photo! I can feel all of the sparkle and shimmer from the very beginning of application until the very end. It’s not coarse and gritty, but I do feel it–it feels flat and micro in size but noticeable every time I lightly pressed my lips together. There is a little bit of traveling after three hours of wear.

It’s not long-wearing–this has a very creamy, slippery consistency that allows for easy application and excellent glide, but it is definitely prone to disappearing. On me (and keep in mind, non-long-wearing lipsticks wear four hours on me), it wears for three and a half hours. I’ve also tested some of the lighter shades, and those disappear as quick as two and half hours. Guerlain doesn’t indicate a specific hour of wear claim, but they do say this is long-lasting; by signaling it’s a product meant to be longer-wearing, it should last longer than regular lipsticks. Rouge Automatiques last four to eight hours, depending on the shade.

Shine Automatique has a fair amount of slip–reminiscent of a lip balm. Thankfully, it actually is moisturizing while you wear it; my lips always felt good after wearing these, and I wore several shades back-to-back.  Lately, I’ve come across too many of these high-shine formulas that claim to hydrate but end up leaving my lips dehydrated, so I’m very glad to see that there’s no lack of moisturizing elements in this formula.  The lipstick feels lightweight and comfortable to wear, and it’s the kind of product that is easily worn alone–it already has the high-shine of a gloss.  These have the same scent as Rouge Automatiques and come in the same type of packaging.

As long as you don't mind that it isn't long-wearing, it's still worth checking out. The way the sparkles dance and play with the light is exceptionally lovely--shimmer-lovers will know what I'm talking about!
