Oh Guerlain, is there anything that I don’t love about you? Guerlain is without a doubt one of my favourite high-end brands and especially their lip products are a must have! I’m a big fan of the Rouge G lipsticks and I thought it was time to explore the Rouge Automatiques.
The Rouge Automatiques are more practical when it comes to packaging. I love the Rouge G lipsticks, but let’s be honest, they are not the most easy lipstick to carry around and they feel quite heavy too (which feel luxurious but is a challenge to carry in your bag sometimes). The Rouge G still looks very classy and glamorous with their pale gold casing. I like the sliding system, you slide the lipstick out of the bullet, so there is no cap, a great thing for us girls that travel around! The Rouge Automatique lipsticks come in different colours and different finishes. They contain 3.5 grams of product and go for around 31 euro. The lipsticks have a very light floral scent, but it’s so light that you barely notice it (which is a great thing!).
Chamade is a medium to dark pink with a little bit of coral to it. The undertone is neutral to warm and the finish is creamy with a pretty sheen. Chamade is actually very close to Mac Ultra Darling, but Chamade is slightly darker and has more of a pink tone. The colour goes on very evenly and pigmented, but it has a bit of a sheerness to it. The results are juicy shiny lips! The lipstick feels light and comfortable on the lips. I’d say the difference between Ultra Darling and Chamade is mostly the formulas, Ultra Darling feels creamier and has more slip, while Chamade is glossier, more pigmented and lighter in texture.
So why did I buy Chamade if I already own a colour so similar? It’s because of the wear time. I love the Mac Sheen Supreme lipsticks because they are like lip butters, very creamy, moisturising and well pigmented. But the downside is the wear time, it wears like three hours because it’s so buttery. Chamade wears around 5 to 6 hours. I love the shade, it’s very wearable and it goes with a lot of eye looks, that’s why I wanted the shade in a longer wearing formula. It will come to no surprise that I’m head over heels with the Rouge Automatique, I actually can’t say anything bad about it! I even bought another one which I will review soon!
So if you want to splurge on a good lipstick, go look at the Guerlain Rouge G or Rouge Automatique, I promise you that you’ll not be disappointed!
