Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich ruby red with a subtle sheen. The color coverage is nearly opaque, and it has delicate layer of micro-fine ruby shimmer strewn through the color. It’s a blue-based red, but there is a hint of pink in the base, too, which keeps it from leaning too far on the cooler-toned end of the spectrum. Rouge d’Enfer wore for six solid hours and made it fairly well to the seventh hour, too.

The formula is creamy without being thick or heavy, and it is actually a moisturizing formula. It’s soft and feels like silk when applied. I find these comparable to the Rouge G lipstick, though not as thick or as opaque, but still similar enough. They’re $11 cheaper than the Rouge Gs, and the colors still have the same depth and nuanced shade range that makes Guerlain lipstick always standout to me. To see more photos of the packaging, check out this post. I did not have any issues with the slider of this particular shade!

Chanel Byzantin is similar but a touch pinker. Burberry Hibiscus is quite similar but perhaps a little lighter.

Guerlain Rouge d'Enfer (121) Rouge Automatique Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

A+
Rouge Automatique is a top-notch formula, because the creaminess of the texture enables it to glide on, making for an easy application, but it's lightweight and never slippery, so it stays on and wears for hours.
