Guerlain Terra Ora Sculpting Powder & Contrast Highlighter

Chanel Routes des Indes is yellower. Guerlain Terracotta in the Sun is slightly yellower and more metallic. The outer ring is a light-medium orange tan with a satiny sheen–it didn’t look quite matte to me, even after trying to brush away at it. MAC Double Definition is a bit darker and browner. Illamasua Writhe is a stronger gold sheen. Swirled together, you end up with a golden, medium orange-tan with a soft, frosted sheen. Chanel Sable Beige is browner. Urban Decay Gilded is darker.
