Cherry Blossom. Guerlain Spring 2010

2010 February 19, Friday

Innocent yet sexy looking Natalia Vodianova, again, fronts Guerlain‘s campaign, Cherry Blossom.  A collection that is originated from the west but draws inspiration from the east.

Eyes are kept in focus with shades of deep violet, plum and shimmering shades of pink and white from the Ombre Éclat 4 Couleurs.  And cheeks highlighted with the multi-shaded Blush Éclat with shades or peach and pink which would go well with most, if not all, skin tones.

In case you don’t already know of this product, the Météorites is a multi-coloured powder put together to give you radiance and glow with the correcting and light enhancing colours.  And fans of the it who like the colour pink will be happy to see the pink “petals” on the compact case of the Météorites Voyage this time.  Resembling sakura during “mankai” (cherry blossoms in full bloom).

Insolence, one of the house’s best selling fragrance also comes in a limited edition bottle to celebrate spring.  Decorated with Japanese-style flowers and somehow reminds me of the umbrellas a Geisha would carry when strolling the streets of Kyoto.  The scent is made up of violet, berries and iris notes.

La vie en sakura!


For Spring 2010, Chanel launches Les Impressions de Chanel.  A classic and timeless collection inspired by the imprints left by Madamoiselle Chanel.  All shades in this collection are with nuances of beige, with touches of brown, khaki and gold.

And the face of the campaign is once again the classy Malgosia Bela.
