- Rouge Automatique will appeal to those who love sheer textures but want a vibrant colour at the same time. The formula is hydrating, provides long lasting comfort and radiance.
- The innovative flip-top applicator not only adds to the fun, but also means you won’t need to worry about juggling both mirror and lipstick cap when touching up on the go.
- Available in 18 shades, Nahema #143 is described as a bright coral sheen and Shalimar #166 a bright strawberry pink (but it’s fuchsia on me).
- Incredibly long lasting – it starts off a a highly moisturising & shiny pop of lightweight pigmented colour, then after an hour or two it absorbs into a matte stain, still maintaining its pigment.
- Whilst it rubs off on takeaway coffee cups, interestingly it does not leave any lipstick marks on glasses or ceramics. It also doesn’t smear on teeth.
- Verdict: This is my new favourite lipstick for work, because of how amazingly low maintenance it is – no smudging on teeth, long lasting and so easy to touch up. It also instantly revives dry or flat looking lips into a juicy pout. Two thumbs up!
Drag the lever down & the flip top opens to reveal the lipstick.
Which one do you like better? I think I might have a softer spot for #166.
Although #143 appears streaky, it’s because I applied a thick layer to produce a good even swatch.
In real life, you won’t need such a thick layer & the streakiness is less noticeable with a sheer layer.
Note: For those in USA, Shalimar #166 is available on Nordstrom whereas Nahema #143 is available on Sephora.
