Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick in 144 Insolence

This Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick is very, very luxurious, and also a bit mechanically interesting too.  The lipstick casing is all one piece - there's no cap to remove, you just slide the G logo down the lipstick, and the bullet pops out of the top.

Insolence is one of two new shades for spring 2014.  It's described as a bright, vibrant fuchsia, although I think it's more of a bright coral-pink - it doesn't have that blue undertone which most bright fuchsias do.

On me it reads as more of a straight bright pink, although there's a slight coral cast which my camera hasn't managed to pick up.  I've not tried one of Guerlain's Rouge Automatique lipsticks before, and I'm very, very impressed with the texture - it's smooth and silky, but not so silky it feels like it'll slip straight off the lip.  Once set, it lasts very well - around four or five hours - and it fades evenly, remaining comfortable on the lip throughout.  At £25, it's definitely a luxurious treat, but one which delivers everything you could want from a high end lipstick.

  1. It's totally a coral. But that's a good thing (for me, anyway). Also good to have an un-lose-able liddage mechanism.
