Guerlain Lou-Ling (760) Shine Automatique Lipstick
A Holiday Pink That Sparkles
Guerlain Lou-Ling (760) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “enchanting plum set off with a golden sparkle.” It’s a pop of raspberry pink with a subtle shimmer-sheen finish. There is noticeable fuchsia and gold sparkle within the color. Tarina Tarantino Floriculture is similar, slightly pinker. Revlon Raspberry Pie is less red, pinker, cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is redder. MAC Quite the Thing is cooler-toned and more fuchsia. MAC Scandelicious is similar but doesn’t have the sparkle.
It looked rather sheer when swatched, but applied to lips, the color opacity is nearly opaque–it was a little surprising, actually! Shine Automatique is a long-wearing and hydrating with “bold” coverage. Lou-Ling wore for six hours and left behind a light stain, and while there’s noticeable sparkle, it didn’t travel during the time I wore it but there was an ever-so-noticeable grit after three hours of wear. It was comfortable to wear and apply–creamy and slick enough to glide on without pulling or tugging but no feathering or bleeding–and my lips felt hydrated during and post-wear. It is scented with Guerlain’s signature violet fragrance.
