5 Shimmering Silver Eyeshadows

I love a really shimmery silver on the lid with a matte gray or black eyeshadow in the crease for a very traditional, monochromatic smoky eye!

What’s your favorite silver eyeshadow?

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant coral.” It’s a semi-opaque coral-pink with warm undertones and a dusting of fine gold shimmer. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is slightly pinker. NYX Haute Melon is similar; a smidgen lighter, no shimmer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is very similar, bu8t more opaque and less pink. Chanel Coquette is lighter and has pink shimmer. NARS Niagara is very similar but doesn’t have as much shimmer. MAC Crosswires is a bit more orange.

The formula is touted as a “moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick [that] combines bold color with pearly particles.”  This shade has semi-opaque color coverage; it gives lips noticeable color, but some of the natural lip color still comes through (you’ll notice you can see my lip freckle, but it’s muted).  The formula is comfortable to wear, lightweight, and incredibly shimmery, sparkling, and all-around stunning when worn. Depending on your sensitivities, I can feel the micro-sparkle when I press my lips together, which I don’t love.

While it’s moisturizing and always leaves my lips feeling better than they began, it’s not a long-wearing product for me. Pamplelune lasts about four hours, which is average for most lipsticks.  The Rouge Automatique is definitely truer to the long-wearing claim.  Shine Automatique has a more balm-like texture, so it has more slip and slide, which means it feels great when applied and after, but it doesn’t last as long.  It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm caramel.” It’s a medium rosy brown with a beige shimmer-sheen. It looks rosier on the lips due to the natural pink tones of my lip color, while the beige shimmer translates into more of a general white frost/shimmer. Cle de Peau T9 is creamier, peachier. Dior Coral Crystal is a bit darker. MAC Can’t Get Enough is more bronze. NARS Love Devotion is sheerer and more coral. Chanel Ruban Rose is similar but more frosted.

The Shine Automatique Lipstick is incredibly moisturizing, and it has a very sparkling, dazzling finish from the micro-sparkle.  It looks luminous, wet-like, and a little glossy without feeling heavy.  The texture is rather balm-like, so it glides and slides onto the lip like butter, which feels amazing, but it does contribute to below-average wear.  The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, but I only get three and a half hours with Sous Le Vent, and I typically get four hours with the average lipstick [that isn’t long-wearing].   It has a perfume-y scent, similar to the Rouge Automatiques, and it is packaged in the same type of packaging.

The color coverage of this shade is mostly opaque–you can barely see my lip freckle–but there is the expected underlying translucency that gives it that luminous finish.  One thing I don’t like is the way I can feel the shimmer/glitter when I press my lips together, but I will note that Sous Le Vent was the smoothest I’ve tried so far.
