Guerlain Orange Euphorique (45) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Orange Euphorique (45) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted tangerine orange with a little pinkiness in it, which is probably what keeps it from venturing into neon territory. It has soft, pale gold micro-shimmer and a glossy finish. Not quite opaque but nearly there (you can see a hint of my lip freckle peeking through).

Hourglass Nectar Extreme Sheen Lipgloss

Hourglass Nectar Extreme Sheen Lipgloss ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened coral with subtle pink undertones. It applies nearly opaque, but it doesn’t apply as evenly as I’d like–close but there are still a few uneven areas. It has a high gloss finish with lots of shine and gives lips a rather juicy look from the creamy finish.

Essie Winter 2010 Collection

my thoughts on the formula: The formula was really nice on these; not too thin, not too thick, and the majority were pigmented enough to use just two coats of polish. The only shade I had any issues with was Smokin’ Hot, wihch seemed a little thin in places.

Dior Pinky Mauve (460) Serum de Rouge

Dior Pinky Mauve (460) Serum de Rouge ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a semi-opaque petal pink with soft white shimmer and slight yellow undertones. It’s a very wearable, ultra flattering shade that’s perfect for everyday or paired with a smoky eye.  I have absolutely no idea why this is called “pinky mauve” though.
