Silver & Gray Eyeliner Comparisons & Dupes

It looks like metallic silver has been done by quite a few brands, doesn’t it? When it comes to grays, though, I don’t have nearly enough to give a particularly great comparison, but of the three darker grays I own, there are more differences between the three than with the five silver shades.

Gold Eyeliner Comparisons & Dupes

There are certainly lots of variations on gold but one particular hue seems to find its way into multiple ranges, and I’ve deliberately excluded more antique golds (to-be-posted), but these are the more traditional golds, based on the products I own.   (Please assume that if it’s not here, I do not own it.)

Guerlain Grenade (65) Rouge G Lipstick

The first dupe I could think of was Dior Raspberry Serum de Rouge, which is more muted and less pink, but I think it may be close enough for those wanting a more palatable price tag.  Chanel Rouge Orage Rouge Coco is also similar but pulls almost coral in comparison.

Guerlain Velours d’Or (410) Eyeshadow Palette

It contains four shades: a soft coppered gold with subtle gold sparkle; medium-dark violet plu m with blue-violet micro-shimmer; charcoal-mauve with a muted violet shimmer and slight sheen; and dark black with a matte finish. Upon first glance, the charcoal-mauve looked absolutely stunning–it almost gave off a duochrome sheen! It seemed like a mix of violet, plum, gray with green and violet shimmer/sheen. It’s less interesting when swatched, as it appears a bit flat in comparison.

Guerlain Giny Rouge G Lipstick

When you swatch Gillian and Giny ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) side-by-side, they look incredibly similar, but they are quite distinct when worn (at least on my lips!). While Gillian is a soft rose-nude, Giny is a peach-nude. They both have ultra fine white shimmer and a glossy sheen–a higher shine than the typical Rouge G, actually. As expected, it is also opaque and provides beautiful coverage while still feeling lightweight.
