Flirt from the Guerlain Spring 2013 collection is my first Shine Automatique lipsticks. Actually it’s my first Automatique lipstick period so this is my first adventure with this unique packaging. There is no cap. You simply slide up the the trigger on the side of the tube and the window on the top slides back to allow the lipstick bullet to rise up from inside the tube. Works great for one handed application and is very fun. I find the tiny bullet of lipstick looks very odd against the big packaging though.

For the fun and flirty girl who wants to add a little sparkle into her life, Guerlain introduces Shine Automatique. This moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick combines bold color with pearly particles to give your lips discreet yet exceptional shine. Lips are left soft, smooth, and luminous.

Flirt is a vibrant berry that comes across as a berry fuchsia on the lips. It has refined multi coloured sparkle that give the lipstick a glow that doesn’t appear glittery. It has a really light consistency which would have you believe it would come off quite sheer but it is so packed with pigment it offers almost opaque, and completely even, coverage. It has amazing lasting power for such a comfortable formula and leaves the lips with a soft stain.
