Guerlain Holiday 2013 Crazy Paris

Guerlain Holiday 2013 Crazy Paris Collection

I am always a sucker for Guerlain but the packaging and presentation, (and the products of course!), that are part of the Guerlain Holiday 2013 collection have really captured my attention. I love the theme of Crazy Paris. Elegance with a Hint of Insolence is a notion that speaks to my heart. Not that anyone who knows me would ever describe me as elegant...possibly insolent. The lacquered black with flashes of pink and orange are just so hot! I am dying to see what the Ultra Violet Tip Coat looks like. Please enjoy the following

Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in Madame Batifole for Fall 2013 – Photos, Swatches, Review

While I don't have the exquisite packaging of the Rouge G de Guerlain in Madame Batifole ($51 CAD) to show you from the Guerlain Violette de Madame Collection for Fall 2013, (I'm reviewing a tester version), I can share with you information on the shade and formula of this exceptional lipstick. In the tube Madame Batifole looks like a deep berry with very subtle violet shimmer. Swatched, and on the lips, it transforms to a truly stunning deep fuchsia that positively glows on the lips. It will certainly have you turning

Guerlain Violette de Madame Collection for Fall 2013

Guerlain's Fall 2013 has everything I love about Fall cosmetic collections. Rich berries, pinks, and plums. Intense, sexy, and sultry. The Violette de Madame Collection brings us the Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eye Shadow Duos ($50 CAD) in 8 colour combinations. There is also a gorgeous Madame Rougit blush palette ($70 CAD). I can never resist these face palettes that Guerlain releases. If I end up utilizing my will power I often find myself regretting it later when the product is no where to be found. There is also a

Guerlain’s Spring/Summer 2013 Wishlist Inducing Product Introductions

Guerlain is a brand that always catches my attention. It's a combination of gorgeous packaging, breathtaking promotional photos of the gorgeous Natalia, and stunning shade offering that get me every time. I often find myself so overwrought with need that I can't decide what I want from their collections as I want it ALL. The Spring and Summer 2013 introductions have brought not only beautiful new shades but also numerous completely new products and formulas to the Guerlain lineup. It's hard to keep up! Guerlain always outdoes

Guerlain Shine Automatique Lipstick in 761 Flirt for Spring 2013 ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review

Flirt from the Guerlain Spring 2013 collection is my first Shine Automatique lipsticks. Actually it's my first Automatique lipstick period so this is my first adventure with this unique packaging. There is no cap. You simply slide up the the trigger on the side of the tube and the window on the top slides back to allow the lipstick bullet to rise up from inside the tube. Works great for one handed application and is very fun. I find the tiny bullet of lipstick looks very odd against the big packaging though. For the

Guerlain 14 Les Fauves 4 Ecrin Couleurs Palette from Fall 2012 ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

As you may or may not have noticed I went on a bit of a shopping spree last weekend! I had seen some reviews of the Guerlain Les Fauves Ecrin 4 Couleurs palette but for some reason never gave them much thought. Cafe Makeup in particular was very won over by Les Fauves. I think maybe the fact the palette is so warm is what initially had me put it out of my mind but as soon as I swatched it in person and experienced the glorious pigment and texture I knew it had to be mine. This is just such an amazing palette of colours to bring

Face of The Day with the Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Capri Quad

Here is the second look I attempted with Guerlain Capri. The first was a total fail. The charcoal brown is much to intense to use in my crease and looked very dirty. This look is better but I think I must admit this palette just doesn't work with my colouring and it needs a new home.Products Used:Face:Rouge Bunny Rouge Prelude in the Clouds Aqua PrimerLe Metier de Beaute Classic Flawless Foundation Shade 1Le Metier de Beaute Visage de Soie powder Shade 2Rouge Bunny Rouge Luminous Skin Wand OrionisLaura Mercier Secret Brightening

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Ecrin 4 Couleurs Capri for Summer 2012 – Swatches, Pics, Review

Usually the summer collections are the  ones I have the easiest time passing on as all the bronzers and bronzed goddess looks just don't translate to my fair, cool skin. Well Summer 2012 is causing me quite the turmoil. There are so many beautiful products I'm tempted to try. Guerlain, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, I could go on. Guerlain was one that had me captivated early on. The beautiful Pucci packaging and Oh those pretty blue ballz! I ended up restraining myself and only investing in the Guerlain by Emilio

April 2012 Lemmings

What I Can’t Stop Thinking About ~ Guerlain Pucci Summer 2012 and YSL Summer 2012

April 2012 Lemmings by christa-perilously-pale featuring a Yves Saint Laurent makeupI have been a bit obsessed lately with the Yves Saint Laurent Summer 2012 Collection. I admit to stalking Neiman Marcus online for a week now constantly refreshing their Beauty New Arrivals Page hoping to see the collection appear. After reading reviews on Glitter Geek and Beautezine I know I NEED the Yves Saint Laurent Terre Saharienne Collector in Nº 2 Sunkissed Bronzer. It looks perfect for fair, cool skin. I am also drooling over the glosses in

Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Long Lasting Eye Shadow Quad in 01 Les Violets – Swatches and Review

I was lucky enough to receive the Guerlain Les Violets quad from a dear friend for Christmas. She was hesitant giving me a palette of purples but I was ecstatic. I LOVE purples! From Guerlain's website: Create, have fun and dear to ware colour as an accessory. Specially designed to be used together, GUERLAIN colours can be mixed, matched and blended with no fear of mistakes. Each colour is unique. To fully embellish it, GUERLAIN created each tone individually to give it just the right texture that reveals it without detracting

Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Les Cuirs 07 Quad – Swatches & Review

I only have one friend in my "real life" who knows I have a blog. She has offered to let me take pictures and swatches of any of her pristine, pretty new purchases before she even touches them! She knows I'm trying to cut back on my spending and wants to help me out. How awesome is she?! I feel bad that I have spurned this burgeoning new high end makeup addiction in her but what's a girl to do? I'm here to create lemmings! So her newest acquisition is one of the new Guerlain quads. I have been holding strong in my resistance

Face of the Day with MAC Antiqued, Guerlain Maya and Chanel Rebel Rouge Coco Shine

I don't know if there's much point in my putting up a review of the Guerlain Ombre Fusion eye shadows or not. Let me know if you're interested. I just got my hands on them but I believe they were LE so availability is likely scarce. I haven't had much luck with these more liquid type cream shadows in the past and Maya was not an exception.This was my second look I did using it and you'll see the result on the lid is less than acceptable. I will maybe give it one more go before I decide to part with it as I did the Chanel Ombre

Guerlain Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow Single in 184 L’Instant d’un Reve – Swatches & Review

This is a beautiful taupe brown with the tiniest, most luminous, micro-sparkles. It gives a beautiful glow without looking sparkly or over the taupe (LOL I had to leave that typo there! It should read top!). I had a hard time catching it's beauty in the swatch for some reason, but take my word for it...this colour is a stunner! Maybe I'll try to do a FOTD post with it later this coming week. It is richly pigmented and very smooth. If this is any indication of the quality of the other Guerlain singles then I think I may have to
