Guerlain Star Dust (900) Maxi Shine Lip Gloss ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “iridescent ray of pure light.” It’s a virtually clear gloss with multi-colored, iridescent shimmer that flashes aqua, green, blue, and pink. It’s slightly milky, so it mutes the natural lip color just slightly, and it has a fair amount of shimmer. MAC Oh My Darling (LE, $15.00) is similar when applied but not as iridescent. Giorgio Armani #700 (P, $29.00) is similar but slightly warmer in tone. MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $15.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

The shimmer is very, very fine, so I don’t feel the texture of the sparkle when wearing the gloss. Alone, it wears about two and a half hours, which is a little longer than I normally see with a gloss this sheer. It’s non-sticky, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. There’s a fruity, slightly perfume-y, scent but I didn’t notice any taste. When I wore this alone, it sparkles and shimmers, and in my office, I can actually see the bluish-violet sparkles as they catch the light. The effect is still subtle indoors, but outdoors it’s like a sparkle bonanza. I thought it did more when layered over a lip color, as it gave the iridescence a better backdrop. Guerlain described it being used as a “top coat” to “[add] a diamond shine.” (And this gloss formula varies from very sheer to semi-opaque, but given Guerlain’s descriptions, this one is supposed to be sheer.) I tried it over Insolence, and it gave it a glossier, more iridescent finish.
