    Holy grail lipstick

    I own this lipstick in 265 and I have been raving about this everywhere! The formula is amazing, its very moisturizing and comfy to wear. The lasting power isn't great, but because the packaging is super luxe and chic, taking it out of my purse and reapplying it becomes a treat, and makes me look like a diva of some sort! Overall, I really recommend this lipstick, and I would love to try other colors! — 12 months ago

    Very Impressed

    This has been my go to lipstick for months now. The shade that I have is 264. I bought it based on the case (there I go judging a book by it's cover haha). The color goes on very smooth, and leaves my lips feeling very moisturized for a lipstick. I would definitely recommend this lipstick if you are looking for one that does not dry out your lips. — 1 year, 1 month ago

    Great product, case has pros and cons

    I had my eye on the Guerlain lip color in the cool gold case with the slider and flip open top for some time. I didn't really like any of the Rouge Automatique shades I tried but then I came across the Shine Automatique line which I feel is more my style. Guerlain's Shine Automatique Hydrating Lip Shine is supposedly, "For the fun and flirty girl who wants to add a little sparkle into her life, ...read moreGuerlain introduces Shine Automatique. This moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick combines bold color with pearly particles to give your lips discreet yet exceptional shine. Lips are left soft, smooth, and luminous." Well I don't really describe myself as a "fun and flirty girl" as I'm in my late 30's, but I do like this lipstick. I purchased this lipstick on Sephora which had 12 shades available. The shades all look pink and very spring-like to me. I have fair skin with dark brown hair and green eyes, and I have both yellow and pink undertones. That puts me in a sort of fair and neutral category so I prefer lip colors that aren't too cool or too warm, I like neutrals. I liked several of the shades in the Shine Automatique line but I finally settled on Mi-Mai 202. Mi-Mai is described as "neutral pink." To me it looks like a soft, rosy pink that isn't too cool or too warm. Shine Automatique comes in a square lipstick tube about 3" long and the lipstick retails for $35. The tube is a shiny gold tone and it works differently than any other lipstick I own. The great thing about the tube is that you can use it one handed. There is no separate lid to remove at all. You simply use your thumb to slide the little gold tab down the track and a small hatch door on the top end of the tube drops down and up pops the lipstick. The lipstick has the standard slanted tip so it's easy to apply directly to the lips. To close it you simply use your thumb to slide the tab back up to the top and the lipstick drops down into the case and the hatch door pops up and closes. The unique case that this lipstick comes in is definitely fun to use. There is a drawback though. The problem I have is that since the lipstick comes up directly out of the square case, the case sometimes gets in the way a bit when I'm applying the lipstick directly to my lips (which is how I prefer to use it). So a little bit of the product rubs onto the top of the case from my lips during application. Another option would be to extend the lipstick higher out of the case for more clearance, but then I would worry about it breaking off. So I just deal with occasionally having to wipe off a bit of lipstick from the top of the case. For those who prefer to apply lipstick with a brush this wouldn't really pose a problem. As for the lipstick itself, Guerlain was right when they wrote that it is hydrating. It easily glides across my lips leaving just the right amount of moderate coverage. It leaves my lips feeling extremely moist and smooth for hours. It last for several hours without need for re-application. It feels silky smooth and never sticky at all. I don't notice a scent or taste when I wear it, but the product has a soft, sweet scent in the case. The color is a soft, neutral, rosy, pink and has a small amount of shimmer in it which does give it a bit more shine and vibrance. I'm very picky when it comes to shimmer and glitter because at my age I don't want to look too sparkly. I only like shimmer when the particles are very fine and the shimmer isn't too dense. The amount of shimmer in this lipstick is just right. It makes this lipstick have a little more life than my standard every day neutral lipsticks, but it is still appropriate for my age and for day wear. Overall I really love Shine Automatique and I wear it often. My only complaint is the way the unique case can sometimes get in the way during application. — 1 year, 3 months ago
