Guerlain Enjoy Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, buttery yellow with a satin finish. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #3 (P) is darker (95% similar). theBalm Snobby (P, $16.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Champs-Elysees (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #1 (P) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Too Faced Nectar (P, $16.00) is warmer, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing and adhere well to the skin. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, but dusty, consistency that adhered decently to bare skin but needs a primer to actually wear well. The dustiness of the texture made it harder to apply smoothly. On its own, I was only able to get six and a half hours of wear before it started to fade.

In 1987, Guerlain, the architect of light, launched Meteorites: the first loose illuminating and color-correcting powder that came in the form of multi-colored pearls. One stroke of the brush and these pearls released a perfecting halo to bathe the skin with light and glow with ideal radiance.

There is no mistaking the enviable radiance of a woman’s skin when she looks well rested, healthy and vibrant. She has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. Today, Guerlain reveals the secret to her ethereal glow with a joyful, luminous and colorful 2016 Spring Collection.

Guerlain Fleur de Givre Maxi Velvet

Guerlain Fleur de Givre Maxi Velvet ($30.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. Chanel La Secrete (61) (LE, $37.00) is glossier, lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Infamous (228) (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Bounce (P, $20.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cary (P, $35.00) is glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Papaya (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Givenchy Brun Vintage (105) (P, $36.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Rhubarb (P, $26.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Givenchy Rose d'Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is glossier, cooler, lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Almond Rose (P, $7.99) is cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #4 (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Indian Rose (P, $50.00) is glossier, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Naked (P, $18.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Secret Salma (P, $32.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be a liquid lipstick that has a matte finish with “long-lasting intense color” that “keeps [lips] moisturized.” It is, in many ways, similar to the liquid lipsticks that we have seen often in the last year, but the formula on this shade doesn’t fully dry down and has more of a “soft matte” finish than a really flat matte finish that most liquid lipsticks have. When I pressed my lips together, they stuck slightly, but the color didn’t lift away in patches. It wore for eight hours and was comfortable to wear–I hardly noticed I was wearing a lip color–and it doesn’t emphasize lip lines like some liquid matte lipsticks can. The formula has a sweet floral scent to it but no discernible taste.

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder
Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder ($179.00 for 0.28 oz.) is supposed to mattify the skin while “instantly blur[ring] the appearance of small imperfections.” Guerlain says to apply it “over foundation to set it.” The powder has the brand’s signature violet scent, though I found it very subtle (which was a surprise, given Guerlain has tended to heavily scent their powders recently).

It’s incredibly soft and thin with a smooth texture with lightweight coverage that does mattify the skin without making it appear dry or powdery. I thought it would look chalkier against my complexion, but it didn’t, though it makes my skin appear lighter than it is, which I don’t think works out for me at all. I would disagree with Guerlain’s premise that it is a universal shade. The powder softens the appearance of pores, and the mattifying effect lasted for nine hours on me (my skin type is normal presently). I think that the pressed Les Voilettes ends up working very, very similarly to this, and I actually prefer the softer texture of Les Voilettes over the thinness of the powder in the holiday compact. The majority of the price tag is going towards the compact, which is hefty to hold. The product itself is good, but I don’t think it will work for every skin tone, and the packaging has to pull you in, otherwise there are plenty of alternatives (including ones by Guerlain). There is a small, pin-sized hole on the back, but I wasn’t able to successfully push the pan of product out, so refilling it may require some more creativity.

Guerlain Nuit Merveilleuse (903) Vernis

Guerlain Nuit Merveilleuse (903) Vernis ($26.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, violet purple with fine, multi-colored shimmer (mostly pink and lighter purple). Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Anna Sui Minnie Mouse Midnight Purple (200) (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Poke (P, $17.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Zoya Suri (P, $9.00) is better quality, more pigmented, darker (85% similar). Zoya Belinda (P, $9.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain’s nail lacquer formula is supposed to have “long-lasting color and shine” and is designed to be applied with two coats. I’m a big fan of the formula, but I had an issue with the formula on this particular shade bubbling slightly (three bubbles in total) that was just barely noticeable–initially I didn’t notice, but when I tested it for wear, I did. With a base coat, I didn’t have any issues with bubbling. The consistency is slightly thin but doesn’t pool along the sides of the nail easily. It had good coverage after two coats, and the color applied smoothly and evenly. On me, the color lasted for nine days without chipping, just minor tip wear.

Guerlain Merveilleux Rose (867) Rouge G Lipcolor ($55.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. MAC Mystical (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Tulip (P, $16.00) is cooler, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Streak (DC, $22.00) is less pigmented, brighter, lighter (85% similar).

The Rouge G formula is supposed to be hydrating with a luminous finish. Long-time readers will know it has been a longtime favorite of mine, and it still is my absolute favorite lipstick formula (it’s a favorite that has stood the test of time!). The part that I find is more unique to Rouge Gs is the finish; there’s a fine pearl that gives it a glossier, shinier sheen that isn’t too slippery. This holiday’s limited edition release is mostly opaque with a creamy, lightweight consistency that glided on easily and applied smoothly. The formula was comfortable to wear, nicely hydrating, and lasted for almost five hours on me.
