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!

Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly presents their latest innovation, Clearly Corrective White Hydrating & Clarifying Treatment Masque. Known for their expertise in skin clarity, hydration and whitening treatments, Kiehl’s chemists infused the formula with fast-acting Activated C, a powerful whitening ingredient from the award winning Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution.1

The masque isn’t sticky or oily and fits comfortably on the face, conforming and adhering to the skin without shifting.

The main cause of discoloration or hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of melanin.

Hourglass Eyeshadow Duo in Dune review and EOTD

Today I have Hourglass eyeshadow duo which  bought quite some time ago but only had the chance to use it one of these days. I am sure most make up lovers would have known the excellent quality of most Hourglass products. I am excited to show the pictures of the products, so scroll down to see more :D

IMG_9339.jpg

Hourglass eyeshadow duo in Dune comes in a unique packaging. The cap of the can be twisted unside down. It comes with a mini brush and a mirror. The eyeshadow is small in size so it’s very handy in size. The packaging is not too hefty, but the design and the packaging makes it looks nice.

IMG_9341.jpg

Dune is a duo consisting of a champagne beige with a refined shimmer. The darker color is a deep olive green with soft gold shimmer. The olive green caught my attention as it can be used to create smokey look with less dramatic look. I like to use the champagne color on its own on my lid in the morning to wake my eyes up and make it look fresher ;) I really love this eyeshadow duo as both shades are really good to be used on its own or to be mixed to create smokey look.

Hourglass duo eyeshadow has one of the finest and softest texture. It glides on super nicely on my lid and the pigmentation is lovely. It’s very easy to apply as it feels buttery and really smooth. Even in one layer, the color comes our true to pan. The eyeshadow blends very nicely. I like the look of the green shade when color is build up to be opaque; the fine golden shimmer looks more obvious and hence it makes the smokey looks sexy ;)

IMG_9342.jpg

 

I did a simple EOTD with Dune. I applied the champagne shade all over my eye lid and I apply the olive green on my outer corner and blend it out. I added more color on my outer lid that’s nearer to my eyelash and to my half lower eye lid.

Overall I am really in love with Hourglass Duor eyeshadow in dune. I love the shades and the ultra smooth texture. I bought mine from True Colors in Singapore before they close their outlet in Ngee Ann City. Hourglass eyeshadow duo is available in Barney’s.
