Guerlain Pour Troubler (220) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pour Troubler (220) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright warm red.” It’s a rich, pinked ruby red with subtle ruby red and gold shimmer. MAC Scan-delicious is pinker. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is redder but still rather comparable. Dior Nocturne is darker and has more gold shimmer. Dior Technicolor Red is similar but doesn’t have gold shimmer.

The formula is touted as a “moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick [that] combines bold color with pearly particles.” The color coverage is nearly opaque with a subtle but noticeable underlying translucency. Guerlain absolutely nailed what it sparkle really means–the finish of this is luminous, glistening, and almost looks wet on the lips. It’s a gorgeous finish and look for summer in particular. Now, there are a lot of things to love about this lipstick, and as an avid fan of Guerlain’s lip products, I do, generally, like the formula, but I can always feel the sparkle whenever I press my lips together so it doesn’t seem quite as refined. There are a few stray sparkle particles that have traveled after I’ve worn one. Pour Troubler wears five hours, which is one of the longest wear-times I’ve achieved with this formula (I would disagree with Guerlain on its long-wearing claim).

It is nicely hydrating, though, which contributes to a comfortable feel on the lips, and the slip of the texture gives it an almost balm-like texture, but it’s a little creamier. It glides and applies really evenly and easily, but it’s likely one of the factors that makes this less long-wearing. It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.
