Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick in Vega - Review, Photos, Swatches

My cousin has been recommending Guerlain lipsticks for the longest time. I've been wanting to try them, but the price is not so inviting; each tube costs more than P2000. I can buy 2 MAC lipsticks with that money! But of course, as a beauty blogger, I can only stay away for a while. Since their lipsticks are pretty expensive, I wanted to get one in a shade that I'll love forever. Something timeless, classic, and gorgeous. So I went for a fierce red. :)

Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Vega is a classic red shade with blue undertones. It looks more like a brownish red on tube, but its really not at all when worn. It's finish is reminiscent of MAC's Satin: opaque with sheen. It doesn't feel heavy on my lips, and it's not drying (true to its name, rouge). My only problem with this is that since it's not matte, it's not as long wearing as I'd want it to be. Yes, it does leave a good stain on my lips after a meal, but for it's price, I was expecting a lot more. I'm also not a fan of its scent / taste. Now, about their packaging, I personally love how "techy" it is. Some people thinks it's unnecessary, while I think it adds just a little bit more elegance. It surely looks luxurious, which is appropriate since it's really expensive.

Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Vega

PROS: beautiful shade, creamy, opaque, gorgeous packaging, locally available
CONS: very expensive, may need a lip primer to extend its hours of wear, has a distinct taste / scent


 I will repurchase when I don't find something better.

I've been experimenting on product shoots, and this is the first time I intentionally took ones indoors.

  1. Ayzee,

    It's your blogger cousin from NYC! I love our pics, but have to say I'm partial to the outside ones -- better lighting. And you have such good light in the Philippines!

  2. The shade is just beautiful! But it's so expensive. I'd rather stick with Mac, lol :D
