Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm caramel.” It’s a medium rosy brown with a beige shimmer-sheen. It looks rosier on the lips due to the natural pink tones of my lip color, while the beige shimmer translates into more of a general white frost/shimmer. Cle de Peau T9 is creamier, peachier. Dior Coral Crystal is a bit darker. MAC Can’t Get Enough is more bronze. NARS Love Devotion is sheerer and more coral. Chanel Ruban Rose is similar but more frosted.

OCC Belladonna Lip Tar

OCC Belladonna Lip Tar ($14.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “ultra, ultra violet.” It’s purple–it’s a brightened medium-dark purple with subtle pink-red undertones. Not unsurprisingly, I could not think of any dupes out of these purple lipsticks. Illamasqua Fierce was the closest I could come up with, but it looks tame in comparison (ha, ha).  When I tested this shade for wear, it hung on for a very impressive eight hours, and it still looked pretty good then but noticeably worn.

Bobbi Brown Peach Sorbet Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Peach Sorbet Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” I can’t say I’d agree with that, as it is a semi-sheer tangerine orange when it comes out of the tube (and even in it, it does not read pink coral). On lips, it doesn’t look tangerine or orange–it is closer to that pink coral description, which comes from the subtle natural pink tones of my inherent lip color. Since the product isn’t fully opaque, that pinkness comes through and “mixes” with the tangerine hue of the lipstick itself. (This is, of course, why lipsticks may look one way on someone and different on someone else.) Cle de Peau R9 is more opaque, slightly pinker. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker, darker, and more opaque. MAC So Vain is more coral and opaque.

Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “light heather pink.” It’s a soft, pale pink with subtle cool undertones–it almost looks warm in the swatch but cooler on my lips. Guerlain Rose Piquant is a touch darker. Chanel Charme is darker and more shimmery. Guerlain Rose Innocent is similar, slightly paler. Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage is similar, perhaps a touch darker.
