Illamasqua Culminate Sheer Lipgloss (£14.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as an “iridescent sheer metallic copper.” It’s a warm-toned, orange-copper with flecks of pink and white shimmer and sparkle. Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) (P, $28.00) is pinker, more opaque. Revlon Pango Peach (P, $7.99) is pinker. MAC Rising Sun (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Imperial Light (LE, $20.00) is also similar. Bobbi Brown Citrus (P, $24.00) is slightly pinker. Dior Etincelante (432) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery. Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) (P, $29.50) is similar. Chanel Attirance (LE, $32.00) is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Applied, it looks more rose gold due to the semi-sheer color coverage of the gloss and the natural lip color coming through. As you might expect, the Sheer Lipgloss formula is supposed to yield sheer color with a glossy shine. If you like sheerer glosses but still want some color, shine, and sparkle, this is a nice option as it definitely enhances and changes-up the natural lip color but not as drastically as an opaque gloss would. It wears four hours on me, which is about average.

Illamasqua Wanderlust Intense Lipgloss (£14.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep gold.” It’s a blackened brown with chartreuse, gold, bronze, and emerald green shimmer–it tints the whole thing into a mix of black, brown, green, and gold. I’m sure it’s not too surprising, but I don’t know of a dupe for this shade. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it was difficult to apply evenly. This particular shade wore for four and a half hours.  It was neither drying nor hydrating.
