Guerlain unveils an ultra elegant collection this Holiday season, a Night at the Opera. The collection brings us back to a classical era where red and dazzling gold is the hottest make up style. This collection is one of the collection that I look most forward to especially with Guerlain excellent quality and intricate design! Without further adieu, Let’s take a look at the collection!

One of the special items in this collection has got to be Petrouchka Palette for eyes and cheeks. Consisting of 5 eyeshadow colors in a golden tone, and four blushes (two in matte finish and two in pearl finish), this palette would be a perfect item to be collected this season.

For every Guerlain collection, meteorites is the items I have been waiting for. Although I might have more than enough meteorites, but meteorites is such a gorgeous piece that’s hard for me to refuse. This season, Meteorites Perles d’Etoiles has once again won my heart. Just look at that red puff, it reminds me of the beauty of classic Parisian opera. When it is worn on the cheek, Perles d’Etoiles shows up quite obviously. I have few meteorites that doesn’t really show its color when it is swatched or worn, but Perles d’Etoiles shows up and it can be safely worn as a blush or even to contour your face lightly.

Now let’s appreciate a revisited vintage, For the first time since its creation, Guerlain has reproduced Coque d’Or’s original bottle and reinterpreted it in gold- lacquered glass. The original Coque d’Or perfume was invented by Monsieur Jacques Guerlain in 1937 and he was inspired by the bow tie worn by men on gala evenings and ballerinas’ bows. For this reasons, there’s no reason to say no to owning this previous vintage design Coque d’Or.

For the lips, don’t forget to check out 820 Rouge Parade, it’s an ultra gorgeous red that will enhance your look in seconds! I tried this at Guerlain counter and I fell in love with it immediately, too bad it was out of stock at that moment. If you had the chance to grab this, I suggest you grab it quickly as the shade is absolutely beautiful and it’s selling like hot cakes!

What to buy this Christmas? Marc Jacobs Sky-Liner Seven Piece Petite might be the answer!

Today’s post would be on one of my latest purchase which makes me so excited to share the pictures and my thoughts with all of you. This is Marc Jacobs Sky-Liner Seven Piece Petite.  I purchased this last week in Sephora ION when they start selling the holiday gift sets.

I have been loving Marc Jacobs highliner since the first time I tried it. It’s so hard for me to find my HG eyeliner as most brands always smudges on me. MJ highliners is one of the very few eyeliners I’ve tried and has never failed on me. My job requires me to work outdoor occasionally, and when this happen, I have to remember that MJ highliner has to be the one I am using that day, or else my eye make up would be ruined due to smudging eyeliner.

IMG_0044

So when I knew MJ is going to release this petite highliners set, I knew I have to get it. This highliners consists of 7 mini eyeliners. What I love about this mini highliners is that the packaging stays the same; the only difference is only the size. It’s great that I don’t need to sharpen this mini highliners and I can just twist it whenever I need to use it.

 

IMG_0046

It comes in a box where I can re-use the box whenever I want to. The box comes in a simple design – just sleek black and it’s a light weight box. It’s very prone to finger prints though, so it kinda amuse me when I wanted to take this photo I had to clean it first (well.. although it doesn’t look that perfectly clean)

Here are there shades available shades in this box (description is taken from Sephora website)

  • O(Vert): forest green
  • Brown(out) : bronze with shimmer
  • Sunset : golden bronze shimmer
  • Midnight in Paris : inky indigo blue
  • Th(ink) : deep navy
  • (Plum)age : vivid purple
  • Blacquer: black

 

Below is the swatch for these highliners

O(Vert) – Brown(out) – Sunset – Midnight in Paris – Th(ink) : deep navy – (Plum)age – Blacquer

IMG_0050

I would say that this set is worth getting. Each mini highliner contains 0.37g, whereas the full size contains 0.5g of product. The mini highliners contains more than half amount of product you are getting the full sized product. I can’t remember the exact price of this set, but it’s definitely not costing you three times the full size product. It’s indeed worth your every cent.

Looking at all the colors provided, I think I would use almost all shades in this set. The only color I don’t see my self wearing too often would be Sunset, but it’s no harm trying out new look with this shade. The rest of the shades looks very wearable on daily use.

**edit: This set is going on for SGD 69 and the single full sized eyeliner is going for SGD 36.

I believe this are still available in Sephora Singapore, do grab them before it’s gone!

It feels like clay and you can make anything that you can imagine, it’s a fun pack to be shared with your friends! :)

The black coloured FUN is made from carbon black coal, to give your snowman real coal eyes!
