I know summer has been over and we are already seeing lots of Christmas collection product. However I bought these products during Luxasia Beauty Bazaar last week. I am so glad that I found these during the sale. These products were on my lemming list but because of the hefty price tag I did not get it. I am glad I paid SGD 50 for the Terra Azzura and SGD 12 for Paradisio.
Such a pretty sight to see! The packaging is so luxe. I love the wooden case with “Guerlain by Emillio Pucci” engraved in it. It’s a hefty casing which showcase the elegance of this product. There’s an Emillio Pucci pouch provided too. I love Emillio Pucci’s printed design. They are gorgeous!
However there’s one thing which I dislike from the packaging. The packaging is only aligned with three mini magnetic button. I think this is a little bit unsecured and prone to scratches. I would much prefer the casing are connected with the usual button.
The bronzer is quite sheer. In my opinion, this would look great for fair skin tone. On deeper skintone, this might not show up very well. The texture is nicely done. It blends easily and it creates a natural looking sculpted face.
I did a simple contouring with this bronzer. I am a beginner in contouring, so pardon me if it doesn’t look right LOL. I am also using the blush on top of the bronzer.
Paradisio is a coral red creme nail polish. The color is not unique at all, it’s certainly easy to find the dupe for the color. The formula of this polish is okay. It’s not extraordinary as it leans towards thick formula. It looks uneven on the first coat but it looks opaque on the 2nd coat. I apologize that the swatch does not look good, I took the picture after 3 days of wearing this polish. Hence it has shrunk a bit.
I also has swatched Guerlain Summer 2012 Nail polish in 02 Riviera. You can see the swatch here .
Terra Azzura has a very nice texture. It blends wonderfully and I foresee that I will be using this as a bronzer a lot. Paradisio is not disappointing but not excites me as well. It’s a nice nail polish but it doesn’t have any “oomph” factor.
