Following my review of Two Spicy, a Guerlain Ecrin 2 Couleurs eyeshadow duo with an extremely pretty brown and sparkling orange combo, comes my review of Two Stylish, a petrol blue and silver combination. My previous post covers some background on this product; two generously sized colours, and a mixture of sparkles, mattes and shimmers. The combinations are very interesting but also wearable at the same time, and the whole 2 colour things makes application quite […]
Guerlain’s newest eyeshadow duo’s, L’Ecrin 2 Coleurs (£30) are fairly slender sized heavy weight eyeshadow compacts with two colours in two textures (a matte and a glitter/shimmer or as they call it, a dazzling veil). There are 8 colours altogether, all in very tempting and interesting combinations which I really like. The colours are all called ‘Two —–‘ something or another – there are at least 6 of the 8 palettes I would happily take […]
I don’t know how long it takes you to use up a bronzer but for me, the answer is A LONG TIME. And yet, every year new bronzers get released, and what high end bronzer is better known than Guerlain’s Terracotta collection? The first ever expensive bronzer I purchased was Guerlain (it was around £29 back then) and it lasted the entire time I was at University. Guerlain’s 2013 Terracotta collection ‘4 Seasons’ comes in […]
Mascara is one of those things; some people find that cheap ones work well for them others like me, can’t seem to get satisfaction from cheaper makes. More fussy lashes always seem to want RMK or something obscure mascara that needs to be imported from Asia. Even so; I think this Guerlain Noir G mascara (£32, refills £17) is one of the most expensive mascara’s I have ever tried: They say: This innovative […]
When I saw the Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes, there was definitely one in the world for me. Do you ever sense that about a product? That there is one that is just made for you? Palettes with bright green or black; they are usually indicators that I will love them!
I’ve heard many a good thing about Guerlain’s Lingerie De Peau liquid foundation, so was excited to try their Lingerie De Peau Compact Foundation which is the carry round, quick use base. I do have a thing for compact foundations, as you may have noticed; I love on the go products. This palette is quite unique because it has a base and also a concealer in a thin strip (as you will see) in one […]
I reported on Guerlain’s Terracotta collection for 2011, aptly named Inca. It is a very pretty, very sexy collection indeed! I have 2 of the products here to look at! First up is the Terracotta Gloss in 07 Salsa: The terracotta lip gloss looks extremely bold and bright in the tube but it is very much a sheer and shiny finish lip product. Do not be afraid of the brightness!
There’s always time for some Guerlain, and their Summer Collection 2011, Terra Inca is just gorgeous! A mixture of ocean blue, orange and browns – my favourite kind od colours. Terra Indigo: 4 Shade Eyeshadow: Vibrant orange, intense blue, deep brown and light brown presented like a colourful Incan qampi fabric. £37. Sublime Radiant Power:
Just some eye candy for the weekend! This is an old palette but Guerlain is always rather lovely to look at:
As soon as I saw this palette instore I had to have it; Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Place Vendome (no. 2) – I love neutral eyes with a shock of bright colour! Then there was a problem. The price. This palette retails at £51! It’s a steep price – considering the fact that I find Chanel and Dior eyeshadow palettes at £38 or so expensive £51 is just…a lot to ask. Especially […]
I recently got a card sampler of some Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks – here are the swatches: Grenade Gina Galia (my favourite) and Ginger. I had to go and buy a full sized one to try out after this success! The lipstick is expensive (I can’t remember how much, I think it was £25). It comes in heavy duty, luxurious packaging which has sexy curves, and pops open to reveal a mirror inside. I chose […]
Last colour from my lipstick sampler card is Ginger, a coppery bronze. My least favourite for sure: The texture though – divine!!! Its like YSL’s Rouge Volupte but lighter. Gorgeous. I am going to go down to the counter shortly and pick up a few of these…hoping they aren’t too expensive! What do you think of Ginger?
Guerlain Rouge G Jewel Lipsticks are just gorgeous. Apart from the gorgeous texture, the lipstick is a work of art – it flips open and has a mirror inside: Tucked in a compact that marries beauty with high design, with one click, you will have a luminous lipstick and mirror at your fingertips. Today is Gina, which is a true red: You don’t need much product to get high (but wearable) coverage. What do you […]
More of Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks. I CAN NOT WAIT to get my hands on this lipstick on the counter. What’s so lovely about it is that its pigmented without being too heavy and tranny like, but its also glossy and hydrating, but also long lasting. Grenade is a soft, shimmer pink: Not my first choice but I am amazed – even the shades I thought I would EWWW at, look amazing on. What do […]
I was tidying up the other day and found a sampler card with 4 lipstick shades from Guerlain – their Rouge G Jewel Lipstick to be exact: Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact contains a ruby-powder formula that interacts with the light and creates a jaw-dropping pout of perfection. At first glaze, lips will be left defined, smoothed, plumped, and hydrated. Big mistake. This lipstick is pure heaven. I must buy one…urgently. It’s […]
Love Guerlain. Such a pretty, pretty old school range, a tad expensive but really nice. They tend to do good discounts too come the New Year sales. I bought this pretty, pretty Guerlain Meteorites Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer on eBay for about £20 (was about £40 in the shops): This gel primer has little balls in it – ahem – with light reflecting properties inside. They pretty much stay firm until you use the pump […]
I adore liquid eyeliners although my favourite form is the refillabe felt tip type (because with the refillable ones, I can pump more product into the brush if I want to.) I’m always open to trying new things though and paid £20.50 for this Guerlain Divinora Liquid Liner a few months back: Pretty bottle? Check. Inky black liner? Check. Frosted Glass? Check. Read more the see the brush!
I nearly forgot! I made a haul about 10 days ago: This was from the bargain bucket in John Lewis – I got this Meteorites compact which is usually about £100 for £50 and a Kiss Kiss lipstick in Lychee Shine for £7.50. I would never pay £100 for this compact! The refills are about £29 so once you have the compact the upkeep is not too bad. The powder has a nice amount of […]
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* […]
You know Gordon Brown uses Guerlain Terracotta bronzer right? Despite this, Guerlain is one of my favourite old school luxury brands, one of the ones I used to coo over as a teen. From the Terracotta collection I hauled the Kajal Liner (LE) and the Kabuki Brush (LE). I can’t remember the exact prices – I believe it was £18 for the Kajal and £27 for the kabuki. The Kajal/Kohl liner is very pretty: The […]
