We went through the first part of Guerlain Météorites Blossom Collection a few days ago, and now it’s time to take a look at *Star Dust Gloss d’Enfer and *Star Dust La Laque Couleur!
Both Guerlain Star Dust Gloss d’Enfer and La Laque Couleur are meant as sparkling top coats instead of standalone shades, though if you enjoy the sparkling, glossy look, absolutely nothing stops you from wearing them on their own!
Guerlain Star Dust Gloss d’Enfer (900) is basically a clear gloss with a slightly silver sheen and iridescent, multi-chrome sparkle. The sparkle is very fine, so I don’t feel it on my lips. It has a slightly perfume-y smell, and the texture is neither tacky nor sticky.
Here is how Star Dust swatches on its own:
However, the sparkle really comes to life if you layer it over a lipstick! For example, this is how it looks over Guerlain Provocative Rouge G:
Besides the glossy finish, the lipstick provides a base against which the sparkle really stands out!

You have seen the look here:
Star Dust La Laque Couleur (862) is a perly silvery-white, semi-sheer nail polish with a whole load of iridescent shimmer!
On its own, it is still semi-sheer after two coats. If you are not into the semi-sheer look, layering it on top of another nail polish might be the best way to go!
Two coats of Star Dust La Laque Couleur:
I am slowly beginning to notice a trend of sparkling top coat type of glosses and nail polishes this season. Are you a fan?
