Guavagold is a pretty pink-peach color with a bit of golden sparkle. I was assured that it has the same finish as my old Sunshine gloss. They are from the same line after all. I put it on and it was a very pretty, well, peachy pink. So it wasn't a perfect match and it needed more peach but I did like it so I bought it. Here are more pictures.

Honestly, after a good bit of use, I realize that I'm not too thrilled with Guavagold. The texture of it bothers me a little. It feels ok going on but as the day progresses, it gets stickier and sticker. Somehow, that's not my experience with Sunshine, although I was told that they should feel exactly the same. Also remember how the Clinique associate said that they would have the same finish. That's possibly true but Sunshine had a silvery sheen. Guavagold is more golden. The color is definitely not similar. Guavagold is a very pretty color that would look great on a lot of people. It's pretty sheer but that hint of pink is flattering on my skintone. It's natural-looking. It's just not peach :( It's really more pink. It's supposed to be guava with a touch of gold so I guess the name really suits it. When I had it on in the store, I felt that the color difference was minor but in the end, I just wanted a closer match so I tried another counter. I'll see you at MAC tomorrow.
