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.
