Guerlain sur mes lèvres…

2011 March 14, Monday

For Spring 2011, Guerlain launches a collection that works around the face to bring out the beauty of the lips.

The Série Noire Rouge G de Guerlain lipsticks, in four popping shades, are housed in a sophisticated case reveals a mirror when the lipstick is pulled out.  Inspired by the four lipsticks, Blush G is created.  A luxurious compact with four strips of blush tones to suit your moods of either having a subtle hint of colour or super rosy cheeks.  Next comes the Météorites Compact.  In three shades for fair, medium and tanned skins, they feel oh so luxurious on the skin.

And when your complexion has become so velvety and glowy to bring out the lips, some eye shades are here to complete your face to perfection.  Three shades of Ombre Éclat 1 Couleur highlight, sculpt and intensify the eyes while the limited edition Écrin 6 Couleurs brings a twist to your eyes with muted shades of beige, taupe and shimmery brown centered with a bright fuchsia.  Have fun with your eyes!

Lastly, pick one of the three shades of KissKiss Gloss to bring more pout to your puckers.  😉


illuminate with Météorites Perles

2010 July 21, Wednesday

Any fan of the Météorites would know that the house of Guerlain was the pioneer of those coloured pearls of powder that illuminate the face since 1987.  Loose powder in a myriad of colours that won’t fly away with the wind and mess up your vanity case, dresser and floor.  Isn’t that neat?

This summer, an updated version is launched.  In an embossed metal case instead of the former pressed cupboard, bringing it up one more notch and looking more classy.  In three colour harmonies, rosy, beige-y and gold-y, to work for different skin tones.

If you prefer, a pressed version, in the three harmonies, is available too.

There are also two choices for you to put into your purse for easy touch-ups.  The Météorites Voyage in a chic silver compact and the Météorites Travel Touch which is a cocktail of the pearls in loose powder encased in a very convenient sponge applicator, ready-to-use at any time.

Complemetery products like the Light-Diffusing Perfect Primer and the Météorites Brush further enhance the effects of the pearls.

Also launched and in collector’s edition (ie. limited edition!) are the Ombre Éclat 4 Shades eye shadows in neutral pearly shades that will be so suitable for daily use and KissKiss Baby Nourishing Lip Balm with SPF 10 which will bring a nice sheen and subtle colour to your lips making them more succulent.
