Guerlain Perles du Paradis Meteorites / Illuminating Sparkling Powder

Guerlain Perles du Paradis Meteorites / Illuminating Sparkling Powder ($70.00 for 1.86 oz.) consists of six different colored pearls, ranging from pale pink, peachy-pink, icy pink, medium pink, dark pink, and silver.   The mix of pearls is supposed to brighten, reflect, add radiance, and generally “light up” and “instantly awaken” the face.  The pearls are violet-scented as well and larger than the regular-sized Meteorites. It comes with a pink pouf designed to be used for application.

Chanel Accessoire Le Vernis / Nail Colour

Chanel Accessoire Le Vernis / Nail Colour ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep red brown.” It is a deep, red-toned brown with a cream finish. It’s almost a perfect balance of red and brown, so it yields something very rich and lush but deep and dark all the same. MAC Dim the Lights is browner. Barielle Wool You Marry Me is a smidgen darker but very comparable. Rescue Beauty Lounge Atame is much darker and more red-toned. Rescue Beauty Lounge Moulin Rouge is a bit darker.

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “light rosy beige.” It’s a warm, golden copper; I didn’t get real rosiness–more a mix of champagne, gold, and a copper/bronze aspect that gave it a darker coloring. I couldn’t think of anything similar to this, as nothing in the champagne/nude family compared, and even in my gold eyeliner stash, nothing was quite right (most were much yellower).

Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic, bronzed copper.” It’s a rich, darkened copper with coppery-orange shimmer and a metallic finish. When I quickly looked for a good dupe, I came up empty-handed, because the majority of copper shades I’ve reviewed in the past are brighter, less brown-based.
