Review: Guerlain Terracotta Powder Kohl Liner in Lagon Bleu 05

There are some things that I just have to have. These include:

1. Reeces Peanut Butter Cups on demand
2. Milk Latte before 9.30am every weekday
3. A parcel a day – even if its something hideous…

Add Guerlain Kohl powder liners to the list. When I saw this Lagon Bleu liner a part of the Summer Collection I squealed for I am a collector of these lovely little liners.

Lagon Bleu, I am *sure* there was something very similar a few years back but anyhow, its shimmery grey blue was coming home with me.

At £20 we already know its expensive for 1 gram of product but its a special little thing. And yet – there is something missing from this particular one. I adore blues but the colour itself is not striking – its a muted shade of aqua verging on a tiny bit dull.

The texture of Lagon Bleu also feels a little crumbly and dry – some of the other ones are super soft and pigmented this ones feel chalky. It also made my eye water like crazy!

I would love there to be a really true punchy blue and green in this range. However – whilst I would still buy this liner because I collect the Kohls if you are new to them I wouldn’t recommend this shade at all because its quite flat, not really worth the price.

The official Guerlain site doesn’t have the range on yet, but you can browse and buy here.

    I have this and I’m pretty disappointed in it too. Do you find it fades super quick, faster than the other colours? It just won’t stay on my waterline unlike Brun Dore.

    Hey Blu

    I know! It got watered off my eyeline quickly – was a real disappointment.
