i need guerlain's rouge automatique lipstick STAT

The other night after determining that I needed a new lipstick, I concluded that  I had to have Guerlain's Rouge Automatique in Champs Elysees because it was named after one of my favorite streets in Paris. If you contemplate that long enough it makes sense, I promise. Rouge Automatique comes in twenty shades, is housed in a gorgeous gold tube and opens in a Bond-like fashion with one click. Amaze.

I made the mistake of getting on Saks Fifth Avenue's website to purchase it and was met with this: "DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, A CUSTOMER MAY ORDER NO MORE THAN 6 UNITS OF THIS ITEM EVERY THIRTY DAYS"

So do I order my 6 now to be safe?? I am so confused/worried. Then I noticed that ALL of Gurlain's lipsticks are in beautiful containers. Maybe I need Rouge G de Gurlain, a lipstick nestled in a silver case designed by Lorenz Bäumer, a famous French jeweller.

And then there is Kiss Kiss Stick Gloss, a sheer lipstick that comes in 7 very wearable shades and is packaged in yet another fabulous, Art Deco looking container.

To say that I am perplexed would be an understatement. If only they were a bit less expensive (they all run around $30) so that I could just buy all three and be done with it. But I cannot justify that, as much as I have tried. I only need one. .

I guess I'll think about it for a little longer.


  1. gah, such amazingly gorgeous containers! hmm, decisions..i think that the gold is the most luxe looking :) 1,3,2 would be my order of purchase in choosing prettiest


  2. Oh goodness. Is it sad that I own several of each of these lipsticks from Guerlain?!? They are indeed my favorite, not only for the packaging, but for the quality too. (psst. Tray Strawberrynet.com for the Rouge G & Rouge G Brilliant...they are always discounted and the CS is super!

  3. I agree with you both, so maybe I need 2?? Thank you for the tip Elvira, I am headed to Strawberry.net now :)

    They didn't have the original lipstick you posted. I was going to buy it, because I loved the pink color.
