I bought the shade ''rouge d'enfer''. This lipstick is soooo pigmented! It lasts forever. Perfect for going out, I especially like the bright red against an all black outfit. The packaging is luxurious and I have to admit I kinda like showing it off when reapplying lipstick ;)
It is on the pricy side but it's worth it! All the shades are classic, just gives you more opportunities to wear the product. I might buy the shade ''l'heure bleue'' for the holidays, just seems like the perfect deep red shade, so in this season :)

Guerlain has done it again. I got acquainted with the line when I bought #660 (Illusion, a berry-fuchsia with blue micro-glitter, applies sheerer than in the tube) and #662 (Reflex, an almost-neon strawberry/coral pink, applies pretty true to tube color). It's creamy, decently long lasting, and my lips did not feel dry. From there I bought #121 (Rouge d'Enfer - a bright red with ruby micro-sparkles), and some of the Shine formulas for the office where brighter colors may be frowned upon - #220 & 221 (both reds - 220, Pour Troubler, is a sheer tomato-red on me, and 221, Rouge Damas, is a sheer sparkly pink-red), and #261 & 262 (261, Rose Imperiale, is a cool bright sheer bubblegum pink, and 262, Extrait de Rose, is a sheer sparkly fuchsia). Even the sheerer shades do pack a punch, although they look more translucent and less creamy. For something so moisturizing, these do not bleed and last quite a while. Although it is luxurious and convenient, the packaging is a bit bulky and I took off 1 lippie for the fact that I have to push up a bit more of the lipstick than I usually would with a regular tube to use it properly. Nonetheless, it is a pleasure to use, and the color/finish selection has something for everyone.

If you are in the mood for some amazingly good lipstick, Guerlain is the brand to go to! I love the Rouge Automatiques and Rouge G's, the difference being that Rouge G's are more pigmented, and the Rouge Automatiques have a more translucent quality about them, despite being quite pigmented already. However, I absolutely love the ease of application with these, one flick of the nifty notch and you're ready to apply your lipstick, plus the gold packaging is beautiful on my vanity. In addition, the formula of these are amazing, very long-wearing, moisturizing, and the color clings to the lips in a flattering way. I own three colors, Rouge D'Enfer, a neutral strawberry red (which I can see flattering any skintone), L'Heure Bleue, a stunning deep reddish plum with sparsely scattered pink reflects, and Vega, a vampy wine red without any brown tones. I love all three of these! There are some seriously stunning colors in this line, combined with the amazing formula and packaging, make these a win!

I truly love this lipstick. Feels buttery & glides smoothly. I don't need to spend 10 mins making sure I have applied it smoothly esp to the edges if my lips. It wears evenly & doesn't bleed, there is no blotchy patches.
I quite like the sliding mechanism, it's quite convenient, but I have to agree the fragrance is overpowering & it is pricey.

Man, the prices they ask for this or other high-end lipsticks are crazy here, in POOR Romania...they're bigger than in the US!
I saw these at the mall today and I think this tiny thing is 70$ here(that's a third or quarter of the average salary here)...so not worth it!
Most shades are also very shimmery which kinda ruins them and makes them look cheap in the tube.
I googled its ingredients and it has nothing of the advantages that I would require of a high-end lipstick(and any, to be honest)-> it has fragrance, which is bad but at least it's at the end of the list....BUT it also has aluminium hydroxyde which is cangerigenic(like all aluminium) and BHT which is most likely cangerigenic, too. It also has Bismuth Oxychloride; a lot of people are allergic to that, I read(It's most used in *mineral* make-up).
The only naturally hydrating thing this has is ozokerite(some cheap stuff have more of those). Other than that, it's emollients. So it's just an average lipstick. The long-lasting feature comes from the high amount of lead in the pigments. More lead, more long-lasting, more cancerigenic. At least it's not drying but ugh... the aluminiun and crazy price really put me off.
I just felt like setting things straight about these all-smoke and mirrors brands.
I only gave it 2 stars cause of the packaging and that it's not drying though I didn't have the change to wear it for a long time. Could be 1 star then.

I so so wanted to love it it was the packaging that looped me in and made me return it to Sephora and I never hardly ever return anything.
It's impossible to move the product with the switchblade action without making it move backwards. Maybe if the product weren't so fragile this wouldn't happen.
It's in the mail so I don't remember the name it's a coral shade.
I was so optimistic and yes the package is cool. But it just didn't work.

Absolutely wonderful for anyone who tends to have dry lips. Does not accentuate dry spots or settle in lines, provides an even, smooth layer of color to the lips. Feels creamy without being too slippy and thin. Pigmentation is slightly sheer yet pigmented. Most shades have a slight shine.
Scent is a violet floral blend that's slightly sweet. The scent doesn't bother me, but does seem a bit unnecessary. The packaging is a bit bulky and awkward and the metal tends to get scratched easily if you are carrying the lipstick in a purse or makeup bag. Another downside is the color range, which contrasts between brown beige shades and brights. The few natural muted pink and rose shades contain either high shimmer or frost. Only about 30% of the shades are free of shimmer, frost and micro-glitter. Price is a bit steep but worth it for those with dry lips, the formula perhaps the best I've found to date.
Overall a favorite of mine despite the minor cons I've listed above.

I have the colour # 165, and it is just gorgeous. I love the handy packaging and I have not experienced any problems with it. I usually apply it directly, with no pencil or lipliner. It has a soft creamy consistency, and the colour is highly pigmented and stays on for quite some time. The only reason why it does not get 5 lippies, is that it can dry out the lips a little (very tiny) bit at the end of a long day.

I have to echo Hummingbird's comments in her review - this is a gorgeous lipstick but the packaging sucks! While the idea of a "one-handed" mechanism is clever and somewhat convenient, the fact that the metal outer casing is square means that you will get your lipstick all over the corners unless you are willing to push the product all the way up, thus risking breakage.
Having said that, I've got this in 3 shades - Habit Rouge, L'Heure Bleue and Champs Elysees - and I love all 3. The pigmentation and just the actual shades themselves are perfection. The quality is so good and the lipsticks are creamy and non-drying but for all that they are moisturizing, I really appreciate that they don't bleed or feather, even if I wear them without any lip liner. Pricey as lipsticks go but so worth it for a little bit of indulgence.

First of all, let me say, that i am not really a lipstick girl, i usually find lipsticks too drying, so i do prefer lip balms with color such as the Clinique Chubby sticks...
I always wanted to try a really expensive and luxurious lipstick and was searching for something light and hydrating. I found this lipstick with the unique beautiful packaging, I do not mind it, but it is not the most practical one too say the least.
I am very fair /NW20/ with reddish hair and chose shade 169 which is a perfect nude color for me. I really enjoy using this product and will have a look at some other shades!
