For Holiday, Guerlain released two limited edition Rouge Automatiques, Flirt d'un Jour and Nuit d'Amour. I realized we have not discussed these one-hand-application wonders on Messy Wands, and I duly apologize. I am quite a fan of these lipsticks. It's not the classiest-looking one around - the packaging pales in comparison to the luxurious Rouge G - but it's lightweight and functional. The sliding mechanism becomes extremely handy on days where it takes everything just to balance a bag and books and cup of tea in your hands.
Flirt d'un Jour #169 is an unassuming soft pink, which isn't a bad thing per se. I think plenty will find this to be a My Lips But Better or What I Wish My Lips Were shade.
While the Rouge Automatique formula isn't typically sheer, I did find Flirt d'un Jour to be on the sheerer side compared to the others I own. Edit: 2-3 layers of this will make it opaque. Since my lips are very pigmented by nature, Flirt d'un Jour functions more as a complement than a cover (I urge you to check out Sabrina of The Beauty Look Book's feature as comparison). The slight shimmer you see in the swatch translates to a luminescence that creates a softening effect on my lips.
Guerlain's other Rouge Automatique offering is much more synonymous to Fall, but truth be told, I was a tiny bit disappointed by Nuit d'Amour #170. What appears as a deep, intense plum on the actual lipstick swatches to a (comparatively) mild berry hue. While it's not unattractive by any means, I was hoping for a shocker shade, and can't help but feel a little let down. That said, I think plenty of women would much prefer the toned down result.
Both Flirt d'un Jour and Nuit d'Amour have a balm-like texture that makes them comfortable to wear. I wouldn't say they are very moisturizing, but they're certainly not drying either. I find that Flirt d'un Jour lasts around 3-4 hours on my lips, while Nuit d'Amore hangs around a little longer. Both are nice shades to own, but not must-haves.
Guerlain Rouge Automatique Flirt d'un Jour and Nuit d'Amour retail for $35 and should be available at Guerlain counters in most major departmental stores.
