In the Northern Hemisphere, the temperature has cooled and we’re starting to hear the jingle jingle of sleigh bells and carols in the air and perhaps, just perhaps, you are looking for a lip colour for the Fall/Winter/Holiday season. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Let the Lipstick Bandits help you in your quest! icon biggrin Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique

My contribution is the Guerlain Rouge Automatique No. 170 Nuit d’Amour. I love this one because this is a gorgeous lip colour that is at once surprisingly wearable and beautiful on the lips. Plus its perfect for the party season, dinners, low light situations… where it really comes into its own, and heck, I wear it in the daytime here – in the bright sunshine icon biggrin Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique Quick review, more photos and other Lipstick Bandit recommendations below!

The Rouge Automatique No. 170 Nuit d’Amour is actually Guerlain’s Christmas offering. When I was first tasked to showcase a Fall lip colour, I panicked. You see, when you live in a warm sunny country its hard to imagine what sorts of colours people will use when it gets cooler and darker. I just want to whip out corals and pinks all the time. So I actually prepared 3 posts before this, with what I thought was a suitable Fall lip colour, until I came onto the Guerlain counter last week and Nuit d’Amour sang its siren’s song.

Here is a picture of Nuit d’Amour taken in bright sunlight. You can see that its actually a plum berry and not black as I originally thought. Here’s the picture I showed you last week that had reader Emma El wondering if I’d gone all goth icon wink Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique

In the shade, its a deep deep plum, almost black. In the sun, you can see its got these pretty gold flecks in it but it does not apply shimmery nor glittery. The texture is similar to Chamade and you can read my review on the Rouge Automatique lipsticks here including my take on the packaging. I swipe it on directly without a brush, although a brush will offer better control.

And on my lips, here’s how it looks.

Its a deep berry-plum with red tones that isn’t as dark as it looks in the tube. If you prefer something darker you will be disappointed. I was hoping for something more wearable so this suits me perfectly. Its a colour I don’t have in my stash and I love the surprised looks when I whip it out for touch ups, because everyone will STARE at that black lipstick in your hand! icon biggrin Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique Oh and at the mechanism too of course icon wink Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique

This deep colour will accentuate flaky lips though, so be sure to ensure a smooth flake free lip before applying this. It is a little sheer on first application, and the colour can be built up if you apply more layers. This picture shows about 2 layers.

And here’s how I did the rest of my look to go with this lipstick.

Other items featured:

Face: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau liquid foundation 01 Beige Pale, Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Nuit

Eyes: Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette – Deep End, Ace, Midnight Rodeo (I was trying to replicate the Guerlain Christmas eyeshadow palette) angle’s out so you can’t see a lot of it but its pretty

Cheeks: Lunasol Modelling Cheeks EX01 Soft Pink

Famous last words

If you don’t already have a lip colour in this shade, I think its a good investment. Its surprisingly wearable, its a good formula and it will get you your deserved attention, one way or another icon smile Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique That of course, if you can still find it, and are willing to pay for it icon smile Lipstick Bandit Fall/Winter Edition: Guerlain Nuit dAmour Rouge Automatique

Thank you Jamilla :) I have realized I pull off cooler tones better than warm ones so those are the shades I gravitate to :)

Wow, Nuit D’Amour looks beautiful on your complexion, Paris! Yes, this color indeed adds a a touch of festive, but also chic touch to the whole look. I love it that it looks almost black by itself, but appears plum berry on the lips.

Hmm… my favorite lip color recently has to be coral red I think… Wearing MAC Lipstick in Fanfare a lot.

Thank you Jess! I’m not familiar with Fanfare but coral red is such a pretty shade! Since its always sunny here it’s easier for me to wear a warmer tone than a cool deep lip. I might have to wear something coral tomorrow! :D

Gorgeous! How come you seem to carry off any red lipsticks? Not fair! I’ve recently started falling in love with red lippies so yes, I just might pick this one up. It looks goth like at a glance but what do you know – such a perfect fall shade.

Thank you Cas! I only pick reds I can wear though. I don’t do a lot of warm orangey reds because they tend to make me look a little sallow and older, although it looks beautiful on others so the trick is to pick a color that suits you and you’re set ;) I think I like this one more for the surprise factor than for the color lol!

Thank you Gio and I’m sure you’d have no trouble pulling off this color! It’s very flattering and I think in winter seasons when it’s cooler and darker it would actually look amazing. Less so in the bright sun here ;)
