Guerlain Sable Show (851) KissKiss Lipgloss

Guerlain’s fall collection is just starting to pop up on retailers now (but so far, I’m seeing back-order dates, so it’s more like a pre-order). I’m excited, because I picked up Gilda and Bonnie Rouge Gs and Grenade (another Kiss Kiss Gloss shade). For now, though, let’s take a look at Guerlain Sable Show (851) Kiss Kiss Gloss ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.), which is a warm champagne-shimmered beige-peach. It has some multi-colored shimmery bits and bobs, but it is predmoinantly pale champagne–almost white in some lighting. Dior Satin Peach is milkier and has gold shimmer. MAC Naked Space is more opaque, milkier. Hourglass Imagine is similar but also has gold shimmer. Dior Twin Set Pink is similar, a little paler. MAC Jana has a similar look on lips, even though it seems colorless. There’s a smidgen more shimmer content that tends to make it a little more than sheer lipgloss, but it’s still more similar than not.

Chanel Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose brown.” It’s medium-dark rose with a hint of brown and some mauve, along with multi-colored shimmer–I detected copper, gold, and flecks of teal. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum is pinker, plummier. NARS Oasis is darker, more plum. MAC Spice is like a browner, creamy, opaque variation. MAC Over Indulgence is less pink.
