Guerlain Wulong Meteorites Pressed Powder

Guerlain Wulong Meteorites Pressed Powder ($170.00 for 0.26 oz.) is really meant to be the creme de la creme of luxury compacts and powders. This holiday’s refillable compact is a black lacquered metal case that has a lot of heft–the whole compact clocks in at just under 5 oz. The top of the compact is raised with Guerlain’s signature rosette, and the interior of the rosette is made up of gold mother-of-pearl.

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “highly holographic lacquer in a classic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver.” It looks like a soft, paled silver-gray shimmer suspended in a clear base, but it definitely has holographic shimmer as soon as the light catches it. The particles aren’t chunky or gritty, like glitter, but they’re a bit larger than shimmer. Milani HD is comparable–the particles are just larger and it has a more silver coloring.

China Glaze Desert Sun Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Desert Sun Nail Lacquer ($7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicious caramel.” It’s a burnt orange–but lightened, not rusty–very much caramel-colored, though a little warmer. China Glaze Orange You Hot is more orange and has shimmer. Zoya Arizona is lighter, brighter. Sinful Cloud 9 is brighter, more tangerine. China Glaze Papaya Punch is more orange, brighter.

Guerlain Altoum (700) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Altoum (700) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “gold with tone-on-tone sparkle” and is supposed to be used to illuminate lips with a veil of sparkle or used as a layering base/top coat with another lip product. The base is mostly clear, perhaps just enough to give it a warm tone, but it is predominantly composed of lots and lots of gold sparkle and shimmer ranging from medium to micro in size. MAC Ruffian Gold is similar, slightly less yellow-y. Dior Or Etoile paler and more uniform in the size of the shimmer (which is fairly fine). I was also reminded of Bobbi Brown Canary, which is a gloss.
