Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant coral.” It’s a semi-opaque coral-pink with warm undertones and a dusting of fine gold shimmer. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is slightly pinker. NYX Haute Melon is similar; a smidgen lighter, no shimmer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is very similar, bu8t more opaque and less pink. Chanel Coquette is lighter and has pink shimmer. NARS Niagara is very similar but doesn’t have as much shimmer. MAC Crosswires is a bit more orange.

The formula is touted as a “moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick [that] combines bold color with pearly particles.”  This shade has semi-opaque color coverage; it gives lips noticeable color, but some of the natural lip color still comes through (you’ll notice you can see my lip freckle, but it’s muted).  The formula is comfortable to wear, lightweight, and incredibly shimmery, sparkling, and all-around stunning when worn. Depending on your sensitivities, I can feel the micro-sparkle when I press my lips together, which I don’t love.

While it’s moisturizing and always leaves my lips feeling better than they began, it’s not a long-wearing product for me. Pamplelune lasts about four hours, which is average for most lipsticks.  The Rouge Automatique is definitely truer to the long-wearing claim.  Shine Automatique has a more balm-like texture, so it has more slip and slide, which means it feels great when applied and after, but it doesn’t last as long.  It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.
