It is almost not fair for me to write another Guerlain Rouge Automatique review, since long-time readers will know I have a real soft spot for these. A while ago I was shocked to realize despite my theoretical appreciation for corals, I did not own a real coral lipstick. That situation was to be rectified as soon as possible with my favorite lipstick range so far.
That’s how Nahema (143) came into my possession, and the reason why you have a short and sweet raving review to read today!
I have reviewed the packaging of Rouge/Shine Automatiques before, so I am not going to bore you again here. In short, even 5 months after my first Rouge Automatique and more experience with lipsticks, I am still a fan of of the packaging. I wish it had a bit more heft, but I stand by the fact that the mechanism is very nifty, and I cannot express how much I love the casing that is not a fingerprint magnet!
Nahema is a coral pink with some golden shimmer and a natural sheen. The shimmer is very subtle and doesn’t travel. It glides on easily, doesn’t slide off, is light and comfortable to wear. For me the Rouge/Shine Automatiques function as well as lip balms. I reach for them after long-swatching sessions of less moisturizing lip products, and the second I put it on I can literally hear my lips heave a sigh of relief!
Nahema is pretty opaque after one layer, and wears 4-5 hours on me. Like most corals, I think it will beautifully for those with a warmer undertone!
Are you a fan of coral? What is your go-to coral lipstick? What is your favorite line of lipsticks?
