Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) Rouge Automatique
Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) Rouge Automatique ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “golden tone.” It’s a brightened, yellowed base with fine gold shimmer. It’s supposed to have an “iridescent, sheer finish” for a “barely there look,” so as you might expect… it is sheer. If you wanted to wear bright, sunshine yellow on your lips, you’re out of luck. If you wanted a sheer layer of golden shimmer, this is your speed. It has a lightweight, very emollient, wet-like feel on the lips, so it glides on without tugging. On its own, it lasts only two hours, making it one of the shorter-wearing shades I’ve tried in the formula, though it was hydrating. MAC Highlights (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty William (LE, $32.00) is more pigmented, less glossy. NYX Mischievous (P, $6.00) is more pigmented. Tom Ford Beauty Solar Gold (LE, $49.00) is very similar. MAC Playland (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery/pigmented. Dolce and Gabbana Topazio (LE, $33.00) is darker, more pigmented. Guerlain Altoum (LE, $35.00) is more sparkly. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Triptych (P, $18.00) is more pigmented, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Guerlain Fluo Stiletto (662) Rouge Automatique ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “neon pink.” It’s an extremely bright, magenta fuchsia with cool, blue undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly with a lightweight consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin. It wore well for five hours and left a slight stain behind while feeling moisturizing while worn. It is a very dupable color, as this is just one of those shades that every brand seems to do at some point, though less do it with the glossier finish (many options are more matte), but there are still lots of variations on it. NYX Privileged (P, $6.00) is lighter. Maybelline Orchid Ecstasy (730) (P, $7.49) is very similar. Tom Ford Beauty Pablo (LE, $32.00) is slightly darker.
