Guerlain Browny Clap (402) Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine
Guerlain Browny Clap (402) Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine

Guerlain Browny Clap (402) Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine ($30.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a medium brown with very fine white shimmer and subtle warm undertones. Urban Decay Glinda is similar–slightly more metallic. Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather is darker, more mauve. Revlon Rosegold is more mauve. Dior Intimate Bronze has gold shimmer.

It has semi-opaque color coverage–there’s translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through–but enough color that it hides the majority of my lip freckle. The consistency is thin, non-sticky, and lightweight; it hardly feels like you’re wearing much at all. Browny Clap wears three and a half hours on me, which is shy of my four-hour average. This shade has more of a pearly finish, so it’s not as sparkly/shimmery as Cherry Swing, and it isn’t quite as shiny. The formula is hydrating and always leaves my lips feeling better than they did when I initially applied the gloss.

Browny Clap

Browny Clap is a very wearable color and will work well on a variety of complexions. I wish it wore a little longer and had a touch more shine.

  1. definitely not special enough for $30 IMO.

  2. paloma smith

    for thirty bucks, I’d expect more color payoff….

  3. FluffKitty

    Wow, this is a gorgeous color. But it’s not on the Nordstrom site yet.

    It’s an ok colour but the name is just wrong on so many levels!!! Or is that just me :)

    Does it have a scent? I absolutely love the color, but won’t buy it if it will give me a migraine (most Guerlain products do :( )

    • Just like the lipsticks/powders – floral-ish! (I think it’s violets.)

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

        Meh! I don’t get why cosmetic brands feel the need to add strong scents to makeup products. So many pretty and otherwise high quality products I have to stay away from because of this!

    Who wants to apply browny clap to their face? Yuck to the name! Really Guerlain? Do we not proofread the names? I say pass on this one. I can just see my Mum asking me what I am wearing today. Oh, Mum, I have the browny clap. Gasp!

  8. Boone

    Grr Nordstrom, it’s April already, where are they? :D (I’m not crazy about this one, but I loved the Cherry shade you reviewed a few days ago!)

    I nonshimmer version of this is hourglass extreme sheen lipgloss in TRUTH. also this name is awful

  10. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mariella Mariella

    Oh that name! Some translations turn out so awkwardly. This is one of them (or else things have really changed since I was a Brownie).

  11. Very subtle. Like others have said, for that price I’d expect more.

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Anne Anne

    I mean- Browny Clap? COME ON!

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elyse Elyse

    Really pretty, but what on earth is that name! Hahaha, oh gosh.

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gretchen oh.no.pepper

    The wacky names make me think a chic French Existentialist philosopher is teaching us the lunacy of life through lip gloss.

  15. Janelle

    As I said before this is a collection to order by number not name…as the names are the worst. I think this color is beautiful but not worth the price point!

  16. Liz

    I like that a lot. Not sure if I’m willing to spend $30 on a lipstick though.

  17. OMG this is spectacular. The color is GORGEOUS–very “mlbb” and the shimmer is understated and pretty and the packaging is delightful…the only thing that I dislike is the name. Browny Clap? Anyone else think that’s totally hilarious?!! :P hahaha I think that has got to be THE worst name for a gloss I’ve ever heard. But maybe I have a dirty mind…

  18. Maggie

    “Hey mom, for Christmas there this new lipgloss I want called Browny Clap.”

    REALLY???!?!

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lisa Lisa

    It’s OK, but I wouldn’t want to spend $30 on a gloss.

  20. the NAME! seriously why name a product after a sexually transmitted disease? LOL and to call it browny clap…hmm..?

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Precious Precious

    I actually like how subtle it is, but the shade’s name is awful. Oh, my! What were they thinking? :(

  22. Not my type of lip gloss. I prefer pink shades for I kinda have pale lips. I find it kinda pricey too. I guess I have to pass on this one.

  23. What a gorgeous shade. So flattering on you, Christine!

  24. Mietta

    Hahah ‘Browny Clap’? Ewwww…I wouldn’t buy it because of the name!!

  25. Charlotte

    Any dupes for this colour but in a lipstick? I find gloss too sticky!

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Christine Christine

    I have cheaper glosses that look similar to this…going to pass. Can’t justify $30 for a gloss.

  27. Alannah

    I LOVE THIS COLOR! but I wish it wasn’t called “Browny Clap” …I’m not even going to say what it sounds like…lol

  28. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ellen Ellen

    I really like the color though, it is my “type”. But the scent if not the price will scare me away, I’ll have to check out some of the dupes.

  29. ruthlessrocks

    Ok, what’s with the name? Browny clap sounds like a raging case of STD…

    Just got it today because of your review Christine. Love it! Thanks!
