Guerlain Shine Automatique: 265 Pao Rosa
This is probably the only lipstick that I must have backup of! I absolutely cannot and will not live without this shade. It is so pretty and so easy to wear, it has just the right amount of pigment to make it a great daytime lipstick and an even better shade at night!
This color is shimmery, and the more I layer the lipstick, the more irritating the shimmer gets. This is probably the only downside I can think of about this lipstick, and it is not strong enough to make me want to stop wearing it and not get backup!
Pao Rosa is a plummy color that runs a bit sheer, since it is a shine. It has gorgeous pink sparkles in it that makes it even prettier. The formula is hydrating and moisturizing and divine, despite the glitter in it, it doesn't dry out my lips, not even as the color starts to fade. I have three more of the Automoatique line (which I will be reviewing soon), but nothing comes close to this, even though its the only one with shimmer in it.
I usually put a thin-medium layer and rub it with a clean ring finger to give it a bit of a stain effect, and then I reapply another layer or two to enhance the shine, and it lasts for at least 4 hours, but one must definitely reapply after eating and drinking. Therefore, in terms of longevity, I wouldn't say that it is a long lasting lipstick, but for the gorgeous result I get, I am willing to put up with reapplication. Plus, taking this lipstick out of my purse is rather exciting, because the packaging is super sleek, and the color looks divine in the tube as well.
