Which Shade is the Most Close?

The top Chanel Glossimer was my holy grail for years.  After they discontinued it I bought all I could on eBay.  Those a LONG gone and I moved on to Too Faced and Urban Decay glosses.  Chanel has two colors that are super close to Daydeam 174.  Which one do you think is closer to 174?  I'm thinking maybe 172 because of the blue undertone?

I have great difficulty selecting cosmetic colors online, but I do have one observation. 172 seems to be the better choice because 98 is a Limited Edition and will no doubt disappear soon. There is no need to get one that won't be around when you need to replenish.

Re: Which Shade is the Most Close?

I have a terrible time with lip colors.  The color in the tube looks different than the color on the sponge applicator.  I would agree, though, that the shade Silleemee mentioned is closer although the 174 looks a bit oranger to me.  

 

I have the same issue with a Chanel lippie.  Lucily, I don't wear it that often so I'm near the end of one tube and I have a whole other tube before I'll have to find something else.  But, I rarely even wear it on it's own, adding a gloss over it which changes the shade somewhat.  Try finding a match for that, ha ha.

@SilleeMee 

 

Neither.

 

Neither?  Neither isn't an answer to "which is closer?" Smiley Surprised

But the Guerlain looks like a good match.  I shall check 

it out.  Thanks.
