Guerlain Bloom of Rose (162) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Bloom of Rose (162) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a frosted medium-dark pink-plum. Chanel Paradis is a lighter, sheerer version. MAC Troublemaker has a similar color but different finish and is sheer. Chanel Legende is redder. MAC Craving is similar but darker, creamier. Bobbi Brown Plum Rose is darker. Maybelline Bit of Berry is darker and has a creamy finish.

What makes Bloom of Rose special is actually how much more complex it is than it appears to be.  At first glance, it’s just another pink, but then when you go to describe it, you think of roses, plums, pinks, and they all play together here.  The lighter pink shimmer gives it a frosted finish but also serves to lighten the backdrop of pink-plum it sits on.  The color coverage is mostly opaque, and while it still has a subtle sheen common to the formula, it’s not as glossy or as creamy as the majority of the Rouge Automatique range.  I imagine that the frost content gives it that slightly drier consistency.  I wouldn’t describe it as dry, just drier than other Rouge Automatiques.   It still feels lightweight and comfortable to wear, just everything is to a slightly lesser degree.  It wears five and a half hours on me, though, which is longer than anticipated for a shade of this hue.

You’re spot-on about this shade being more complex than it initially looks, Christine! I thought it’s just another pink till I saw the swatch. It’s almost peachy/coral in a way. Another winner in the Rouge Automatique line!

That is such a pretty colour. I don’t usually like frosty lipstick but this one doesn’t scream “frosty!”. I would be tempted to check it out, if not for the price. $35. for a lipstick is a tad rich for my blood.

Maybelline ColorSensational in PINK PEONY is a really good dupe for this color! I love it and it’s around $7. I got mine in a 2 for 1 deal last year. I own about 7-9 color sensationals and this is MY FAVE COLOR! =D

Hi Christine, i absolutely have to ask you : what’s the color you’re wearing on your water line (above the gold eyeliner) ?

It suts you so well I want the same. I noticed this color a while ago on each photo of you.

xo from Paris, France.

I’ve always wondered this…how do you rate the packaging? By appearance? Practicality? Extras? I’m, for some reason, really fascinated by the reasoning behind it. Haha. (:

Droppability, functionality, type of material used (plastic, glass, metal, etc.), whether fingerprints are visible, travel-friendly/portability, mirror/no-mirror, labeling, ease of storing it, flimsy/strong, heavy/light, chunky, ergonomics/comfort of hold, and so on.
