Guerlain Rose Barbare Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Rose Barbare Rouge G Lipstick ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, strawberry pink with subtle shimmer and a glossed finish. The color coverage is semi-opaque, delivering some color but not enough to cover my lip freckle. Chanel Charme is lighter and frostier. MAC Cheers All Around is more opaque but similar. Rimmel Dizzy is brighter and more opaque.

Laura Mercier Raspberry Sorbet Satin Lip Color

Laura Mercier Raspberry Sorbet Satin Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle blue undertones. The finish is supposed to be semi-matte; there’s a healthy sheen to the color once applied, but it’s not glossy and looks creamy from afar. Chanel Belgravia is cooler-toned, lighter. Bobbi Brown Mod Pink is lighter, pinker. Dolce & Gabbana Splendid is brighter, less berry. Lancome Posh Pink is redder, more intense.

Make Up For Ever #4K Khol Pencil

Make Up For Ever #4K Khol Pencil ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep green.”  It’s a rich green-teal with very subtle blue and teal micro-shimmer.  The shimmer is just barely noticeable.  It yields great color payoff in a single pass, which is always good news when it comes to an eyeliner.  It’s the closest I’ve come to finding a dupe to Prescriptives Blue Grotto. It’s a bit greener than NARS Kaliste.

Guerlain Samsara (124) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Samsara (124) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a berry-kissed medium-dark red with ruby red micro-shimmer. There’s the faintest hint of a cool undertone, but compared to more obviously blue-toned lipsticks, it almost appears orange-toned! The color coverage is mostly opaque with little product needed for the results seen in the swatch. It does have some resemblance to Guerlain Vega, but this almost looks orange in contrast, and it’s a bit darker and definitely not as bright. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue looks more like a berry-red in comparison. Giorgio Armani #406 is similar but has little to no shimmer. MAC Prolong is a touch brighter.

Guerlain Les Gris Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Les Gris Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) consists of four eyeshadows that center around a cool-toned, gray theme.  Guerlain’s eyeshadow formula doesn’t always hit all the bells and whistles for me, even though their color selections are rarely off.  The textures of these shades are soft, smooth, and decadent, but the payoff could be a little more intense.  Without a primer, these wear for around eight hours with just slight creasing, and with a primer, there’s no creasing even after twelve hours.
