Guerlain Nuit d’Amour Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Nuit d’Amour (170) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “black red that reveals an intense plum color.” It’s definitely a shade that will intimidate at glance; it looks burgundy-brown-black with twinkles of ruby shimmer in the tube, but it’s so, so different when swatched or worn. The description sounds like they did this deliberately (“reveals”). It’s reddish-pink burgundy with hints of plum and ruby micro-shimmer. Even though the shimmer is there, it’s so fine and sparse that it’s rather subtle.  MAC Rebel is redder and brighter. Guerlain Bee looks quite similar on, but it has less red in it (and more opacity). YSL Forbidden Burgundy is a little brighter and redder but still rather similar.

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).

Guerlain Girly (71) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Girly Rouge G Lipstick ($47.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pink.” There is more fancy marketing-speak than color description in the press release. It’s pink–oh, yeah–it’s a vibrant, nearly glowing, pink-red.  It has more of a cream finish with opaque color coverage and a glossy shine. It is redder than Guerlain Champs-Elysees but darker than OCC Queen. It’s a touch darker compared to Estee Lauder Wild Violet, which also has shimmer.
