Guerlain Nahema (143) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Nahema (143) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant coral-pink with subtle gold shimmer and a natural shine. This is the type of shade that always seems to garner compliments, even though there are a fair amount of shades that can be found in the same family. Guerlain Chamade is redder. Guerlain Bal de Mai is a bit darker and less coral. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker and brighter. NYX Haute Melon is a bit lighter. MAC Hibiscus is more orange. Laura Mercier Tangerine is lighter and less pink. Chanel Phoenix is much pinker. Chanel Genial is similar but doesn’t have the shimmer. Korres #18 is pinker. MAC Fresh Salmon is more golden and sheerer.

Nahema yields opaque color coverage and has a creamy, glide-on consistency that feels comfortable to wear but not slippery.  I tested this shade’s wear, and I was able to get five hours of wear.  By the sixth hour, I felt like I needed a reapplication.  One of my favorite characteristics of this formula is the luminous finish; it’s shiny without being overly glossy, and the shine lasts for at least half as long as the color itself does.  For more packaging photos, please see this post.

Looks fantastic on you, Christine! How does it compare to MAC Flamingo? (I wanted Flamingo, but it was sold out everywhere, so this one could be an alternative).

Hi, love your blog.

You mean that it’s similar to “Watch me Simmer,” not “Quick Simmer” right?

Thanks for all the helpful posts. Love this color on you.

Um, is it just me or did you stop having the “Love it, Leave it” buttons? Just curious. 🙂 I haven’t seen them in a while, but maybe I just missed something. >_>

The color looks really good on you, btw! ^_^

We had to temporarily disable it, because it was slowing down the site – we’re trying to build it from scratch again, so it’s taking awhile!

This along with Feur de Feu happen to be my Guerlain RA first purchases. I later bought Bal de Mai. But I love all three – but I use them very rarely , since I live in India and can’t repurchase :(.

This shade looks so pretty on you! How do you think it would look on someone with a very pale complexion? I’m always looking for a pretty coral-y pink color and can never find one that I can pull off with my paler than pale complexion. Love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipsticks, one of my favorite formulas!

Yayyyyyy!!!! You always swatch the lipsticks I’m debating on getting, then your review always makes me even more positive that I want it!!!! Thanks for awesome swatches and reviews<3

I bought this on-line (no Guerlain counter for miles around here :(), and initially thought it was too bright, but it goes on beautifully, and is my first choice lippie at the moment! Love the mechanism too!
