Guerlain Altoum (700) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Altoum (700) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “gold with tone-on-tone sparkle” and is supposed to be used to illuminate lips with a veil of sparkle or used as a layering base/top coat with another lip product. The base is mostly clear, perhaps just enough to give it a warm tone, but it is predominantly composed of lots and lots of gold sparkle and shimmer ranging from medium to micro in size. MAC Ruffian Gold is similar, slightly less yellow-y. Dior Or Etoile paler and more uniform in the size of the shimmer (which is fairly fine). I was also reminded of Bobbi Brown Canary, which is a gloss.

Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait

Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait ($48.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “plum.” What a pedestrian description! This shade is so much more complex. It’s a rich, deepened scarlet red with ruby red micro-shimmer. There’s just a hint of berry in the overall color, especially from afar. While it is not a dupe, it’s a cooler-toned, more berry-hued version of Chanel Dragon. MAC Good to Be Bad is browner and has no shimmer. MAC What a Joy! is more berry-hued. Guerlain Gigolo is deeper, darker, but it is rather close.

Guerlain Lou-Ling Nail Lacquer

Guerlain Lou-Ling Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.38 fl. oz.) is described as a “stunning plum for a spellbinding look.” It’s a deep berry-burgundy with strong red wine undertones and a very subtle dusting of subdued red shimmer. There are a lot of similar shades on the market–the biggest difference is going to be that smattering of shimmer, but it’s not very visible in most lighting. MAC Gadabout Girl is darker. Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies is redder. MAC Blueblood is a smidgen darker, no shimmer. China Glaze Velvet Bow is a touch redder. Urban Decay Wrecked is similar but darker. MAC Purple Majesty is also a fair bit darker. Zoya Anja is fairly close (no shimmer, though). China Glaze Loft-y Ambitions is the closest–it has subtle shimmer and is a tiny bit lighter. Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter is similar but has no shimmer.
