GUERLAIN Écrin 4 Couleurs in Les Precieux for Spring 2015

It’s so wonderful to see non pink eyeshadow shades this Spring. Many brands have released bolder shades for Spring 2015, and although Les Precieux is not the boldest among them all, the colors are not too girly for my liking yet not too bold for a daily shades. Between the two palettes Guerlain released for Spring 2015 Les Tendres, I didn’t think for long to pick this one compared to Les Nuées as the deep green caught my immediate attention.

The colors in this palette are:

#1: a deep green with shimmers. The pigmentation of this color is good, the color shows on the first swatch. What I love most about this green is that the color payoff is lovely, and the shimmer is not too much.

#2: a sheer pale pink with frosty finish. This shade is not my favorite in this palette as it doesn’t suit my skintone to use it as a base color nor as a highlighter.

#3: a pale ivory shade with heavy shimmers.

#4: bronzy shade with shimmers. This is a gorgeous bronze that will be wearable on most skin tones.

How do I like this eyeshadow palette?

The shades in this eyeshadow palette has inconsistent quality. I would say so because although the green and the bronze applies smoothly, I find that the pale pink and the ivory shade has some fallouts. In terms of lasting power, I shall say that this are good for about 7 hours with primers. The color stays put and does not crease within 7 hours. As for the color combination in the palette, I must say that this palette leans more towards daily use or elegant look. I am still playing and experimenting on how to create a more fun look with this palette. Nevertheless, I think this palette is worth a try if you’re a sucker for deep greens like me.

Below is a simple look I did with this eyeshadow palette. For this look, I use the bronze as the base color and blend it all over my eyelid. To create a more in depth look, I added the deep green shade on my outer corner and above my eyelid very softly. For my inner corner, I used a pointy eye brush to apply the pale ivory shade. And for the last touch, I applied the sheer pink shade nearer to my eyebrow and use it as a highlighter.

The collection has finally hit Singapore shores and I am expecting many people would be buying the Meteorites Perles de Blush. I was reluctant to purchase the Meteorites Perles de Blush because of many considerations, but after looking at it in person, I was immediately sold!

I did a quick swatch at the counter and without further adieu, here are the swatches!

Here’s a look at the whole collection. Guerlain divided the look into two categories; Angel Glow look and Precious Glow look.

The eyeshadow in this look, Les Nuées (SGD 88) is a blue themed eyeshadow. It’s a mixture of deep navy blue and frosty soft shades. The kisskiss lipsticks for this look would be 261 Rose Imperial and 560 Rosy Silk (LE) (SGD 49).

Another new product for this season is the Meteorites Compact (SGD 84). This is the pressed version of the highly sought after meteorites pearl and the pearls are finely pressed to form a beautiful mosaic of light-enhancing and corrective shades. Another good good news is, this would be a permanent collection.

Another product that I was waiting for this collectiion is the Meteorites Baby Glow (SGD 74). This product is promised to bring out the healthy glow of Meteorites Perles but in liquid form and it is packed with SPF 25. Meteorites baby glow features the Stardust technology, the light-creating polymer from the legendary Météorites.

Below is the swatch of shade 2 – Clair /Light 3 – Medium 4 – Doré / Golden, please pardon my dirty hand on this swatch.

Lastly, the highly anticipated Meteorites Perles de Blush (SGD75). The Perles de Blush are a combination of three shades of pearls – A fuchsia that revives the natural colour of the cheeks, an iridescent champagne that illuminates the curve of the cheekbones and a rose petal pink that gently refreshes the complexion.

It’s a limited edition perles de blush and as the swatch below show, you shall anticipate a pigmented perles for your cheek.

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!

In a humit and hot day, I often source for a product that hydrates my skin without leaving any sticky feeling. Thanks to Guerlain for sending me this item and letting me try this.

The key to have young and radiant skin is by constant hydration. I always try to keep my skin hydrated by religiously applying moisturizer and drink plenty of water. Guerlain Super Aqua Creme Day Gel is packed with aquacomplex. Aquacomplex is an exclusive combination of plant and biotechnological ingredients. The quantity and quality of the water infused in the product is important as this will affect the ability of the product to naturally boost hydration flows and restore the skin’s youthful appearance.

I love the fresh scent this day gel provides, no alcoholic smell and it makes me feel fresh.

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream Review

 Hello!

It seems like all brands are launching their own BB cream. Chanel has come out with CC Cream few months ago, Dior has DiorSkin Nude BB Cream, and the list goes on.. Recently Guerlain launched Lingerie de Peau BB cream and I picked this up to try it on myself.

IMG_5341

IMG_5340

 

This product promises to correct skintone, provide hydration the whole day and not to make the skin feels oily. Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream comes in a rather big (long) tube with a dispenser at the end. This product comes in two shades; light and medium. I picked shade light.

IMG_5344

 

This product has a creamy texture and it gives light to medium coverage. I usually use half pump to achieve light coverage and one pump to medium or even almost full coverage. I usually use my Real Technique Buffing Brush to achieve a lighter coverage and I’ll do a bit of finishing touch with my finger to spread the bb cream evenly all over my face. It has a rather dewy finish but it is not shiny at all. This product can cover redness on my face well. However when I have dark circle under my eye area, this products doesn’t help covering my dark circle too much. I still need to put some concealer to cover it.

Lingerie de Peau BB Cream has a strong smell. Some people might like it and some might want to avoid it. I personally don’t mind with the scent of this product. Another thing that makes me in love with this product is the lasting power. It last with me the whole day without fading and it doesn’t make my skin oily.

Swatch and Look:

I did a very simple look for my Sunday brunch last weekend. I prefer to have a simple look for my weekend brunch. Just a foundation, touch of neutral eyeshadow, eyeliner and blush. In this picture, I use half pump of Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream and did not set it with powder. As you can see, it doesn’t provide a too glowing finish but it surely helps my skin to look healthier.

 

Final Thought:

I bought this product a months ago and I have been using it nearly everyday. I simply love this product to the bits. I love the coverage, the skin tone correction and the lasting power. It doesn’t make my skin feel oily at all. The scent might annoys some of you so you need to smell this product before you buy it.
