Alongside the new Rouge G in Gardner, Guerlain are also launching a couple of new Rouge Automatique shades, including this one in Nuit D'Amour. It's scary-beautiful, look:
Described as a black-red, I don't mind admitting that I gasped a bit when I first opened the packaging of this one, as it looked like this in the room I was in:
Black. But, actually, it's not, it is indeed a blackened-red plum with just the merest hint of tiny golden shimmer:
This picutre gives you a good idea of how the shade will look on the lips. Replete with the same Rouge Automatique gel-formula which is very gentle and moisturising on the lips, this is a lot sheerer than initially anticipated, but the shade is very buildable.
Here, I've swatched how the lipstick looks swatched once, twice and three times on the skin:
Even at three layers, you can see it's sheer, and will still let a little of your natural lip-colour show through. One layer is a little more like a glossy stain.
Here's how it looks on my lips:
Surprisingly soft and wearable, more like a deeply coloured balm than the goth-tacular lips I was expecting. Nice to see that Guerlain are adding more unexpected shades to their range.
Face of the Day coming up tomorrow, and a look at the new Meteorites pearls ...
