GUERLAIN-ROUGE AUTOMATIQUE -141 Quand Vient L'eté

6.9.11
It was a lazy morning with L.
This summer has been quite different from the others, no more high-school, no more doing home-works last minute, no more copying  home-works last minute.
So we had a lot of laaazy mornings, shopping, eating, watching Jersey Shore (I know, I know), eating.
In one of those busy busy day, we made a quick (in my opinion, not so quick in L.'s one) visit to Sephora.
During this trip I was looking for a red lipstick that I would feel comfortable wearing in summer.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Russian Red but I feel like it's quite too much for august's night out.
Last year I've used a lot MAC Barcelona Red, it was lovely.
BTW, I can't find it on their site, do you know if it's discontinued?


This year, I fell for Guerlain's rouge automatique.

First of all, I'm such a baby.
The packaging is just brilliant, I could spend days opening and closing my lovely lipstick.
I swatched quite a lot of lipsticks of this range and I loved them all.
Here's how Guerlain describes this product of geniality: 

"Automatically Fashionable As Coveted as an It-bag. As Precious as a gem. As Glamorous as stilettos. Automatically Innovative On first glance, you will love the elegance of this structural case. Then you will enjoy its new gesture: Click, clack, and away you go. You look at it. You guess that it is telling you something. Its story? RougeAutomatique’s story, a small Art Deco wonder born in 1936, which was the first lipstick without a cap and with a technique requiring a single hand: What a heritage! But its secret also comes from its innovative formula: 3 objectives, 3 promises upheld Objective 1: Second-skintexture An extremely fine film in total osmosis with the skin thanks to sensory oils + waxes. Objective 2: Boosted colours A tailor-made shine with made-to-measure sheerness thanks to the Cristal Pigment, which makes it possible to obtain luminous, clear and pure colours with no white effect. Objective 3: Remarkable long-lasting hold that that combines immediate comfort and lasting radiance. An exceptional shine, stay-put colour, feather-proof thanks to a complex of oil + resin. Automatically Colourful Reds, oranges, pinks, beiges!! A bouquet of 25 shades, from the most sober to the most dazzling one."

I've decided to buy, with L. good advice, quand vient l'eté, a red not so red to be too red for summertime.
We had fun helping the sales assistant to find the color I wanted.
The boy was oh so sweet and oh so clueless.
I've worked at Sephora during the Christmas period last year and easily spotted my precious new toy.
L. never worked there, but she found it before you can say Ruby Woo.
I actually managed to buy it and take it home with me.
I absolutely loved the color and I've used it on a daily basis.
After love at first sight, I found out that this lipstick can actually be trusted.
It feels great on your lips, it's creamy enough to make it easy to wear but not creamy in a getalloveryourfaceifyou'renotapro way.  It actually lasts a lot, I'm a touch up maniac but don't feel the need to reapply it.
I can definitely recommend this product to everyone, it's just the perfect lipstick in the perfect gold tube.
With love,
S.
P.S. Have you tried any other Guerlain's product?
