Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant coral-red with gold and copper micro-shimmer. It’s mostly opaque on lips, but you can see my lip freckle peeking through–from afar, it appears more opaque. I can see this working really well in the summer–so good thing this is part of the permanent range.  This particular formula is supposed to be semi-opaque to opaque in color, so Coque d’Or is right on target.

CoverGirl Enthrall is more like a red-orange (at best, orange-coral). MAC Hibiscus is more of an orange-coral (but not red like Enthrall). Guerlain Bal de Mai is almost like a more muted version of this, actually! Chanel Flamboyante is not as dark and doesn’t have the gold shimmer, but the color is similar. MAC Rose Maiden has a frostier finish and isn’t as dark, but it is also similar.

Rouge Automatique is very comparable to the Rouge G formula, and the differences are minute, though they are there. This is an excellent formula regardless of that comparison, though, because it’s creamy enough to glide on but not so creamy that the color slips around, comfortable to wear for the six hours this shade wears, and keeps lips feeling hydrated, too.  For more packaging photos, please see this post.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I said, “At least look at the lipstick on Christine. Anything that she looks good in, I’ll look good in.” It looks good on you, so…. By the way, what foundation are you wearing? November and December are the months when I refresh my personal foundation and those in my kit. I’m always willing to put down a lot, because a flawless finish makes both me and my clients happy. Since I’m ordering the lipstick soon – because it looks good on you – please tell me which foundation you’re wearing.

bal dem mai, champs elysees and guet apens! 🙂
I love this one but I think I shall wait till summer. I love the formula since before this I used to get lipstick all over my teeth. doesn’t happen with these!

I know! It’s gonna be my post-Christmas gift to myself. I swatched it at Nordstrom a few weeks ago, after I read your review. I’ve never felt a lipstick like it! I’m so excited!

I just got this lipstick and I LOVE it. It is one of the few reds I can wear and not look ridiculous (I am blonde and VERY pale-skinned). What pencil would you suggest with it? I generally like a very low-key or classic look. BTW you look beautiful in this shade!!
