My choice of the bright red Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipsticks was 122 Liu and 124 Samsara. You can read all about the formula and general fabulousness of the Rouge Automatique line in my previous review of Rose Bengale and Bal de Mai, so I won't repeat that. Instead, let's focus on these two shades.
Liu 122 is a pink-based red. It's bright and intense yet easy enough to wear, especially paired with an otherwise nude summer look. It's been one of my instant pick-me-up makeup items in the last couple of months. Samsara 124 is Liu's darker sister. It's not as pink and has a berry/red plum base that makes it beautiful for evening. It'll be just as fabulous in the fall. You can see the entire line swatched by Karla Sugar.
Bottom Line: now I really want Chamade and L'Heure Bleue.
Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35) is available at the counters and Sephora. Not all shades are available in every point of sale.
