For fall, Guerlain has revamped their powder blush formula, and the new formula is supposed to create a “veil of ultralight texture that’s buildable and easy to apply for a subtle wash of color.” There are six shades available, and this is other of two shades that I received to test (I reviewed Morning Rose yesterday). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, so it seemed true-to-description with some buildable coverage, but it was a “wash of color” in one layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and a little dusty, but it sat well on the skin and didn’t look dry. It’s not overtly shimmery, and I’m unable to detect any particles of shimmer, just a delicate sheen. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably around the edges. The only thing to keep in mind is that this is designed to be sheerer and buildable, so if you prefer one-pass opacity, this may not be the right formula for your preferences.

The KissKiss formula is supposed to have “covetable color” with a “satiny, vibrant finish” and an “ultra-comfortable texture” that is also hydrating. For fall, the brand released two new shades, this one and Lady Pink (which I don’t have). The consistency was lightweight with moderate creaminess so it glided onto lips without dragging but still covered evenly, as it didn’t slide around easily. It yielded mostly opaque color payoff that lasted for five hours on me. The formula was comfortable to wear with a moderate hydration over time. It is violet-scented but has no discernible taste.

The Maxi Shine formula is supposed to give lips a “shimmering, radiant, and plumping finish” while hydrating with “varying degrees of coverage and pigment intensity.” Nahema Smack is one of two new shades (the other is Candy Hop, which I don’t have) for fall. It has semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a glossy shine. The texture is lightweight, comfortable to wear, mostly non-tacky, and lasted for four hours on me while keeping my lips feeling moisturized during and after wear. If you like your gloss more opaque, this might not be one for you, but if you prefer semi-sheer coverage, then it might be worth checking out.

This particular shade will be better suited for those fairer than I (I’m about medium for warm, yellow undertones at the moment, a little darker than usual), as it doesn’t show up well on my skin tone, but I suspect it’ll be a very wearable hue on most fair skin tones. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was somewhat buildable, but the best I could get was semi-opaque, which was a bit of a stretch. The texture was soft, a little dusty, but blendable on the skin without emphasizing the skin’s natural texture. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($93.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned, blue-leaning shades that range from a silver to blue to navy blue. I’m not keen on the formula Guerlain’s been using in their recent eyeshadow palettes, as it is drier with a dusty feel that makes them prone to fading, sheering out, and generally not apply well. I wish there was more hold to these, and the eyeshadows would bind better so they would be easier to use. At this price point, it leaves me completely disappointed.

Beaugrenelle #1 is a light, silvered taupe with a fine, gold pearl and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a dry, dusty consistency that made it hard to apply and keep from sheering out on the lid. It lasted for seven hours before noticeably fading. MAC Breaking Ground (LE, $21.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Bones (LE, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #3 (P) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Midnight 15 (LE, $19.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Rockstar (LE, $22.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Verve (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) (P, $34.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #2 is a muted, medium-dark gray with a bluish tinge and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth and silky with a real creaminess to it that made it very easy to blend on the skin. It wore for eight hours before fading. Makeup Geek Concrete Jungle (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Hello Kitty Playdate (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Deep Taupe (LE) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Delphes #2 (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Interior Life (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #10 (P) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Sephora Berlin Underground (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Smashbox Haze (P) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Inglot #339 (P, $6.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #3 is a light beige with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that was easily blended on the skin but doesn’t stick as well to bare skin so I would recommend a primer with this one. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Rust (Highlight) (P) is cooler, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Broken (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Nano Nude #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Disney by Sephora A Wish (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Natural #2 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Eggnog (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Lancome Chouquette (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Cop-a-Feel (DC, $5.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Chantilly Lace (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Celebrate (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Vanilla Bean (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Divergent Serene Vanilla (LE) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Bellissima #1 (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced St. Tropez (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Laetus (P) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #4 is a muted, medium-dark blue with a pearly sheen. It had so-so pigmentation with a drier, dust texture that was harder to apply to the skin. It lost a lot of intensity applied, as it didn’t adhere well to bare lids. On me, I couldn’t achieve more than semi-sheer pigmentation and had noticeable fading after six and a half hours. Too Faced Midnight in Paris (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $19.00) is brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Blueberry Swirl (P, $16.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Clinique Big Blue (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Steel (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #1 (P) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Bright Moon (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I112 Chrome (P, $21.00) is more muted (90% similar). Anastasia Dragonfly (P, $12.00) is darker (85% similar). Ulta Teal (P, $10.00) is warmer, more shimmery (80% similar). NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #9 (LE, $25.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #5 is a muted, dark navy blue with a matte finish. The color payoff was good, while the texture felt soft and silky, though it was thin. Applied, I struggled to apply it evenly, as it became patchy the more I worked with it on the bare lid. Over primer, it applies more evenly, but it needs some extra time and patience. It wore well for eight hours on me. bareMinerals Maven (LE) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #02 (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Ash (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild I'm His Breezey #3 (P, $2.29) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Naval (P, $16.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Inked (LE) is darker (90% similar). NARS Kamchatka (P, $25.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). MAC Midnight Shadows (LE, $22.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #6 is a muted, blackened blue with a matte finish. It’s a cream eyeliner, and it is fairly firm/stiff in the pan, so it is really prone to apply unevenly on the skin as there is quite a bit of drag. I would recommend applying as your eyeliner, and then using a smudging brush to blur some of the unevenness, as the formula is blendable. It wore well for eight and a half hours as an eyeliner on the lower lash line. Inglot #389 (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Tornay (P) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Midnight Kiss (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Starry Night (LE) is cooler (90% similar). LORAC Dark Navy (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Inked (LE) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Prussian (DC, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
