Estee Lauder Citron Kiss Pure Color Lipgloss

Estee Lauder Citron Kiss Pure Color Lipgloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a gold shimmered gloss that has virtually no color, just soft, pale yellow gold shimmer and a glossy shine. MAC Moth to Flame looks similar on, though it’s less golden and more beige. Bobbi Brown Coral Sand is more orange. MAC Gold Dust is less yellow.  Really, any sheer gold-shimmered gloss will do.  I’m surprised I couldn’t think of something dead-on similar.  A gloss like this isn’t useless, it’s just not the type of gloss that most want ten of, because you can’t really see the nuances within it since there is not much to the base color.

Bobbi Brown Citrus Sheer Color Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Citrus Sheer Color Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer neon orange.” It’s a sheer tangerine orange that gives lips a darker, warmer look. It adds subtle color without looking opaque, but it definitely does something. Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced looks very, very similar–it just has shimmer.

NARS Coeur Sucre Larger Than Life Lipgloss

NARS Coeur Sucre Larger Than Life Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering vibrant pink.” It’s a medium cotton candy pink with blue undertones and a silver-white micro-glitter/shimmer. I couldn’t think of too many shades that came close to this. MAC Vanity Fair is much lighter and has no shimmer (more like a liquid lipstick formula). NARS Angelika would be much closer, except it’s not as opaque and applies fairly streaky. MAC Sassy Lassy is darker and brighter.

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium tangerine with gold shimmer. On my lips, it gives them an orange-tint–it looks slightly darker and more like a tint than a colored gloss. There’s also a fine golden shimmer that catches light really well. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for this. It’s sheer yet tinted enough that it adds color and hue to my lips that reads as natural as it could ever be. Do you have any suggestions for a dupe? Perhaps I am being extra forgetful!

Burberry Nude Rose Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss

Burberry Nude Rose Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss< ($27.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a pink-beige that goes on mostly colorless. It looks like any number of sheer lipglosses that have nearly no perceptible shimmer. At best, it adds very subtle warmth to my natural lip color. At worst, it just adds a healthy dose of glossy shine and makes my natural lip color look more even.  We’re at that line I find hard to rate at:  when is “sheer” too sheer? When does sheer become colorless?
