Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in Chamade (164) is a brilliant face brightener. It was true during spring and summer and it works just as well on sunny but cold fall days and the sallow skin that comes with them. The color of Chamade 164 is a warm reddish pink and it could have been be a bit too bright if it weren't for the sheerness that lets just enough of my natural dark lip color to show and balance the warmth of this shade. The result is a strong and feminine look, just bold enough to make a statement but very appropriate for daytime.
The formula of Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipsticks has been praised here and elsewhere. It's moisturizing, smooth, rich in both pigment and hydrating ingredients and it lasts beautifully. The packaging is wonderful- elegant and practical. It's all good, which is why I keep adding more shades of Gueralin Rouge Automatique lipsticks to my collection.
Bottom Line: What's not to love?

Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35) can be found at most department stores, free-standing Guerlain boutiques (if your country is lucky enough to have them) and at Sephora. Duty free shops at some airports offer packages of three Rouge Automatique lipsticks, usually at a good price. I got mine at Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
