Perfect timing. Just as I was complaining that the season would no longer allow me to wear my summer color, Chanel Rouge Allure Belgravia, along comes the winter version of this shade in the form of Guerlain Lou-Ling (760) Shine Automatique.
Lou-Ling is a stunning fuchsia-raspberry with sparkles. I defy you not to smile when you see this shade on your lips.
This is definitely a holiday party shade: the sparkles are chunky and highly visible. Since this is Guerlain, however, you look elegant rather than a teenybopper.
Lou-Ling appears much darker in the tube than it does on the lips. I was expecting a vampish color, and discovered instead a semi-sheer wash that requires more than a few passes to build up. The result is so alluring, however, that I must forgive Lou-Ling's false advertising.
Unique and beautiful, Guerlain Lou-Ling is the perfect unexpected antidote to the winter blues.
