Guerlain Terracotta Terra Inca Moisturizing Gloss Quick

Guerlain Terracotta Terra Inca Moisturizing Gloss ($30.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a translucent formula with no sparkle but “packed with pigments.” It’s non-sticky with a “delicious sheerness.” I gather it should also be moisturizing, given its name. For summer, three shades were released: Tango (09) (flamboyant red), Salsa (07) (neon fuchsia), and Mambo (08) (sunny coral).

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a limited edition single eyeshadow described as “an elegant dove grey.” The Soft Touch formula is finely milled and can be applied wet or dry. Gris Exquis has a soft, silky feel against the skin, and the softness enables it to apply smoothly and blend out easily. It’s a satiny medium-dark gray–it doesn’t lean blue or brown. I like how it doesn’t venture into charcoal territory, but it’s also not too light that it starts looking silvery. theBalm’s Inspirational looks more gunmetal-like and has a more metallic finish. Inglot #339 comes the closest but almost looks a bit purpled around the edges in comparison.

OCC Pool Boy Nail Lacquer

In a very unlikely hue for fall, OCC Pool Boy Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) nevertheless makes its debut in OCC’s Pretty Boy Collection. Given that fall launches start rolling out halfway through our real summer, this beautiful blue is still quite welcome. It’s described simply as a “creme blue.” It’s not quite neon, but it’s not a softer, robin’s egg blue either. There’s a vibrancy in the hue that borders on cyan but still it is tempered by the creaminess of the color overall. It’s more like a sky blue with a hint of aqua in it. I think the yellow tones of my skin make it appear less sky blue–perhaps in cooler skintones you’ll find the blue tones are pulled out of it more.
