One More Coral for This Addict: Guerlain Corail Ora Shine Automatique

Guerlain Corail Ora

Guerlain: check. Shine Automatique: check. Coral: check. I have pretty much made my point about Guerlain Corail Ora Shine Automatique (740. RRP in Belgium: 35,07 euros), but in case you want to know a little more, read on!

Guerlain Corail Ora 740

By now, everyone is probably very familiar with Guerlain‘s Rouge/Shine Automatique packaging and the typical violet scent.

Guerlain Corail Ora 740 Shine Automatique

Corail Ora is a tangerine coral on me with a golden sheen and a lot of shimmery flecks. Compared with other Shine Automatiques I own, Corail Ora has a slightly harder texture and more shimmer. When I press my lips together I can feel the shimmer (as is the case with some Shine Automatiques). It’s not rough, but it’s there. For some reason, Corail Ora is less moisturizing than most Shine Automatiques I have tried. However, do bear in mind that Corail Ora is a good lipstick. It’s more like an A- one in an A line-up!

    LOL you and corals are like me and mint! I love it! It looks beautiful on you Sunny! I only have one of these lipsticks, and have recently rediscovered it again. It’s a fuchsia and I can wear it again!

      Haha thanks, Tracy! I might like Rouge Automatiques a bit more, but that’s me. I have a very traditional taste when it comes to lipsticks ;)

    Looks very soft and delicate, you look lovely! As you know, I am basically the president of the Swiss Coral Craze Club, so I definitely approve of this lipstick :-)

      Aww thanks, Melissa! You should come back here and start a Belgian Coral Craze Club. I’ll be your secretary LOL

    too bad coral doesn’t match with my skintone at all :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Aww well how about coral pinks? There are many different interpretations of coral!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    So so pretty Sunny. It suits you so well.

      Thanks so much, Jacqueline!

    Very pretty colour for summer, I’ll pass on this because I already have corals but this is a gorgeous lipstick.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, you’re right! I’m planning on doing a comparison of all my coral lipsticks. I don’t think any of them are dupes per se, but some are probably similar enough for most people to own both.

    Lovely shade ! Maybe you should change the name of your blog into Mostly Coral :’)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL thanks, Jill! Now that’s an idea ;)

    This is such a great shade for just any occasion. I have to keep an eye out for this :-)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, you should check it out! Can’t have too many corals ;)

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    So pretty! I’m very curious about the Lingerie BB cream as well.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, the nice SA pumped out some for me to try! I’ll keep you posted!

  • VickyM

    This ipstick is very pretty on you :D , I can see you really love corals and you are right about it because they suit you. However I don think I will pick up this product any time soon because right now I have my eyes set on the Givenchy Le Rouge lipsticks, they are so pretty particularly the packaging. Have you tried this line Sunny?

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    I’ve never even tested a Guerlain lipstick for some reason. This one looks so nice and summery! Not crazy about the shimmer factor but it doesn’t show up on your lips in the photos. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      OH LIZ you have to try a Guerlain! If you don’t like shimmer, go for a Rouge Automatique instead. I love Rouge G’s as well, but I think Rouge Automatique is a great place to start (less painful for the wallet)!

  • wheetnee

    I am never ever tired of coral colours! Such a great summer colour!! Ever since reading your blog I have finally got a Guerlain lipstick (it was on sale though in London so it was from an older collection,nevertheless, I am excited to try it out!!)

    I love your top in the second picture!

      Hey Whitney, same here! More coral = better!

      Yaaaay glad to hear you got a Guerlain lipstick! I hope you’ll love it! I’ve certainly convinced some friends to try Guerlain, and they keep going back too!
