Thursday's Beauty Post: Les Roses et le Noir de Guerlain

Probably just like every other girl I'm drawn to beautiful packaging. With Guerlain, you know that you won't only get collector-worthy design but also quality products that deliver. That's why I was more than excited to receive* the spring 2012 collection, which hit stores in Zurich last week.



Météorites Cruel Gardénia - Illuminating iridescent powder limited edition

I'm not a fan of glitter on my face but I love subtle shimmer that has been strategically placed to highlight the face. This beautiful highlighting powder is almost too pretty to ruin the rosette but I have been using it for weeks just above my cheekbones, sometimes also down the center of my nose or my cupids bow and love the iridescent, cool-toned shimmer.




Ecrin 4 couleurs in 11 Les Roses - Long-lasting eyeshadows

The spring 2012 line offers two two eyeshadow palettes with 4 colors each and one with 6 colors. I received the one with the pink tones in different finishes: there is an iridescent frosted pink, an intense pink with a matte effect, a raspberry pink with a velvety finish and a metallic violet. I'm not used to wearing pinks on my eyelids but I'm very fond of the ALCATAR'EYES violet so far...



Noir G de Guerlain mascara - exceptional complete mascara

One of the products that has been created for this spring line is the Noir G mascara with its integrated mirror for perfect, meticulous application. Even though I never apply my mascara outside of my own bathroom (unlike lipstick for instance) I don't really need a mirror but what I love most about this new toy is the fact that it's refillable. Needless to say this is the most luxurious and extravagant mascara I own. I really like the application of the intense glossy black color that curls and lengthens my lashes beatifully but sadly doesn't give much volume in my opinion. The mascara smells unexpectedly nice. In fact the House of Guerlain has created a signature fragrance with delicate notes of flowery peach, rose and jasmine for Noir G, which really makes this mascara extraordinary...

O pudrayı kullanmaya kıymak ne kadar zordur. Güzel şeyler hep öyle kalsın istiyor insan bazen, değil mi? :)

Sevgiler,

Love it when the packaging is as good as the product, makes the application that much more pleasurable! What are your recommendations for an every day lip colour for olive skin? I am currently shopping for a new every day colour =)
