Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Pamplelune (240) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant coral.” It’s a semi-opaque coral-pink with warm undertones and a dusting of fine gold shimmer. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is slightly pinker. NYX Haute Melon is similar; a smidgen lighter, no shimmer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is very similar, bu8t more opaque and less pink. Chanel Coquette is lighter and has pink shimmer. NARS Niagara is very similar but doesn’t have as much shimmer. MAC Crosswires is a bit more orange.

Cult Nails Feelin’ Froggy Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Feelin’ Froggy Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is medium-dark green green with subtle yellow undertones and emerald green shimmer. I think this might look more emerald green against those with cooler undertones (my yellow undertones seem to bring out the subtle yellow undertones in the polish). I love that I don’t have anything that’s close to this shade! There’s a soft, muted quality to it that is missing from possible dupes. Sinful Colors HD Nails is brighter, more yellow-toned. China Glaze Starboard is a grassy green and has a cream finish–same with Essie Pretty Edgy.

5 Summery Peachy-Pink Eyeshadows

5 Summery Peachy-Pink Eyeshadows

This is one of my favorite colors to wear! As someone with a warmer undertone, this type of color is flattering–it brightens, warms up, and looks (fairly) natural on. I can do a quick sweep on the lid, or I can incorporate it with other shades like golds, oranges, reds, and purples.

  1. Inglot #407 — fiery peachy-pink
  2. Make Up For Ever #153 — gold-shimmered peach-pink
  3. Lancome Kitten Heel — yellow-toned pink with peach shimmer
  4. MAC Expensive Pink — darkened warm pink with gold shimmer
  5. Urban Decay Scratch — soft peach-pink

What’s your favorite peachy-pink eyeshadow?
