Guerlain Insolence (144) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant fuchsia.” It’s a brightened coral-pink with subtle warm undertones and a soft sheen. I would almost call it a fuchsia coral, because it is quite bright and bold! Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) isn’t as warm-toned but it is quite similar. MAC Fusion Pink (P, $16.00) is more iridescent, warmer. Guerlain Gourmandise (P, $49.50) is similar. Make Up For Ever #37 (P, $19.00) is warmer, less pink. See comparison swatches.

Insolence is one of two limited edition shades for spring (I purchased the other, but I don’t expect it to arrive until late next week). It had fully opaque color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy, so it glided on evenly and easily–never tugged or dragged on the lips. The Rouge Automatique formula is supposed to be long-wearing and hydrating. This shade was both, as it wore well for five and a half hours and left a stain that lingered for another hour or so, and it was moisturizing while worn. I didn’t feel the need to reach for lip balm at all after wearing this, so it really added hydration, didn’t just maintain it. The formula was comfortable to wear, didn’t feather or bleed, and wore away evenly.

You’re always gorgeous, but you look especially pretty in this pic! I’ll definitely be picking up the Revlon dupe, I can’t afford Guerlain at the moment.

Hahah yeahhhh trueee

when my frnd purchased suqqu n tom ford blush brush
n she already had Nars yachiyo n hakahodo yachiyo

I asked her … did u ordered extra pair of cheeks as well ?

Guerlain Parure de Lumiere + Guerlain Les Voilettes Pressed Powder + Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Liquid Highlighter (mixed with foundation)

Such a pretty look and collection! Makes me imagine spring. The whole look is so gorgeous on you! How to decide what to buy when the companies keep rolling out new product! I know you do a favorite of the week in your newsletter….have you ever done a favorite of the month or season (so, favorite spring collection…)?

It’s a top-down process just knowing what brands are most interesting to my readers, and I usually go from there. If I need to purchase the majority of collection (e.g. no samples), I try to pick the more interesting pieces and see how the collection resonates with readers before I buy any others. With brands like Dior, Chanel, etc. it can get expensive quickly. I spent more last year than I’ve ever spent on makeup, and I need to be careful not to do the same this year!

I do best collection of each season in the Editor’s Choice Awards!

I’m always amazed at how Guerlain manage to make lip colours that look like dupes of everything else in the bullet but once applied look flattering and wonderful and a world away from any other product that looked similar at first sight. Gorgeous colour.

Oh, that’s pretty. It reminds me of 36 (I think that’s the number…) from MUFE but more sheer and a little more glossy.

This shade is hypnotically pretty… 🙂

I think ‘fuchsia’ might be stretching it a bit for this one – it looks like a gorgeous coral to me! 🙂

I love these lipsticks! The case is brilliance, truly one handed and no top to lose. The lipsticks are called violent scented, but they aren’t. Momentary faint whiff of French and expensive. Most very high end name make up imported from France smells like this. Wonderful!

I like how there’s no top to lose! I swear I always try to open and always have my hand over the opening, though. I don’t know why I do that!

This is the perfect shade!
I love the rouge automatiques’ and I was in the market for a coral so this will be perfect!

Does anyone by chance know if or where you can buy Guerlain in Australia? I have only ever bought products when living overseas and I cannot find an Aussie Website!

I’m pretty sure you can, because I have heard from Australian readers about Guerlain’s pricing (at least, I remember it that way), but I don’t know specifically!
