Guerlain Perles d’Etoiles Meteorites Illuminating Pearls

Guerlain Perles d’Etoiles Meteorites Illuminating Pearls ($60.00 for 0.88 oz.) is a softened, medium beige with golden shimmer. I expect mine is leaning a bit more obviously beige/warm, since some of the pearls (and it appears the bronzy ones!) were crushed. Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is more golden. NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is liquid. theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is pinker. bareMinerals The Magic Moment (LE, $26.00) is pinker. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery. Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $42.00) is darker, more shimmery. Chanel Lumiere d’Artifices Beiges Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Guerlain Rouge Parade & L’Oiseau de Feu Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Lipglosses

Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss ($30.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep black cherry.” It’s a deepened red with cool undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny, finish. It makes me think of “blood red” more than “black cherry,” though. It was mostly opaque, applied evenly, and didn’t settle into lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours. The consistency is lightweight, gel-like, lightly hydrating, and non-sticky. Dior Vie d’Enfer (869) (P, $35.00) is warmer, lighter. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Driven by Love (P, $19.50) is more shimmery. MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Russian Red (P, $15.00) is redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Guerlain Rouge Parade (820) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Rouge Parade (820) Rouge G Lipstick ($54.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “luminous red.” It’s a brightened, medium red with very subtle cool undertones (it has more of a pink base, which makes it appear more neutral than strongly cool or warm-toned) and a soft, luminous shine. MAC Sparks of Romance (LE, $16.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Oblivion (LE, $16.00) is more matte, more muted. NARS Annabella (P, $32.00) is warmer. MAC Ruby (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC True Love’s Kiss (LE, $16.00) is similar. Too Faced Melted Ruby (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Estee Lauder Vengeful Red (P, $30.00) is similar. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty Vampire Kiss (LE, $50.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Neo-Noir (126) (P, $30.00) is slightly warmer. Urban Decay 69 (P, $22.00) is similar. Edward Bess Eternal Passion (P, $32.00) is similar. Maybelline On Fire Red (P, $7.49) is slightly cooler-toned. Buxom Provocateur (P, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Guerlain Red Strass, Red Hot, Very Pink KissKiss Lipsticks

Here are the last three shades of the new Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) range. You can check out all the shades reviewed here. To recap: the KissKiss formula falls somewhere between Rouge Automatiques and Shine Automatiques; it has more of the slip and feel of the Shine (and also a glossier finish), but the color payoff is more in line with the Rouge. I don’t think they are comparable to Rouge Gs; they have a thinner, more emollient consistency and wear shorter (on average). They have a violet scent but no discernible taste.

Guerlain Forever Brown & Rouge Kiss KissKiss Lipsticks

I just wrapped up testing two more shades from Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.), which has a staggering twenty-five shades to choose from. I haven’t spotted it at too many retailers yet, but Saks has it online now at least. You can check out my first review from earlier this week if you missed it. The KissKiss formula falls somewhere between Rouge Automatiques and Shine Automatiques; it has more of the slip and feel of the Shine (and also a glossier finish), but the color payoff is more in line with the Rouge. I don’t think they are comparable to Rouge Gs; they have a thinner, more emollient consistency and wear shorter (on average). They have a violet scent but no discernible taste.
