French Brand Launches Innovative New Lipstick
With “Ne m’oubliez pas” (Forget me not) in 1870, Aimé Guerlain first to created wax lipstick in a gold plated tube. In 1936, Olivier Échaudemaison found a small Art Deco wonder that captured his attention- the original “Rouge Automatique”. Today, he’s adapted the piece as the first lipstick without a cap and with an application technique requiring only a single hand.
“The 21st-century Rouge Automatique is created for a mischievous and stylish woman. In one flick of a finger, she reveals the lipstick that will embellish her smile and make her glow with radiance.” — Olivier Échaudemaison, Guerlain Creative Director.
