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!
Guerlain Night at the Opera is definitely a collection worth waiting for! There are plenty of beautiful collector items to grab for the holiday season and not to mention that Coque d’Or is one revisited vintage to collect. Check the collections out!
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.
Super Aqua Creme Gel feels lightweight to me, this is a perfect gel moisturizer for my daily use. Upon applying the creme, my skin feels refreshed immediately. I love the fresh scent this day gel provides, no alcoholic smell and it makes me feel fresh. But for those who are sensitive to smell, you may want to check this out at the counter if the scent suits your liking.
I have been using this for few weeks and so far it has been a very positive experience. My skin feels fresh and no sticky feeling at all. I love this gel texture that leaves my face oil free all day and this product is able to keep my skin hydrated for all day.
Thank you for reading!

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.
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.
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.
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.

This summer, Guerlain release a new range of Guerlain Terracotta 4 seasons bronzers in 4 new shades. I believe most people is astounded with the beauty of 00 Nude. However it’s a pity that I couldn’t find this shade in Changi Aiport while I was travelling so I went with 03 Naturel instead.
Guerlain 4 seasons bronzer comes with a sleek brown velvety pouch. The packaging comes in a heavy metal & glass casing in dark brown. There’s a large G logo printed in the front of the glass casing. I just love the look of this luxurious bronzer.
The Shade & Texture:
What I love about this bronzer is that every bronzer shade comes with 4 shades inside; two darker shades and two lighter shades. It gives me a choice to go for a heavier contouring or just a light one. The shade 03 Naturel Brunettes is darker compared to 00 nude and 02 Naturel Blondes, but it shows up on me nicely.
This bronzer has a nice refreshing scent too. It has a different scent compared to Guerlain Emillio Pucci Terra Azzura and Burberry Blushes. The scent is somewhat citrus-y and now powdery.
Onto the texture, I think Guerlain never fails to impress me especially on their bronzer texture. The texture is really finely milled, soft and nice to touch. The pigmentation of this bronzer is just nice; not way too pigmented so that it wouldn’t be too much when applied. The shade doesn’t really shows when you swatch it on your arm, but upon application on your face, you’ll see the shade pops nicely without being too much.
The swatches in these pictures were taken on indirect and direct sunlight. I applied 2-3 times for each color to show up. However when it’s applied on my face, I swiped once or twice in order to have the color shows.
Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons in 3 Naturel – Brunettes is currently my new favorite bronzer. The texture, shade and packaging impress me and I have no complains about this product at all. It’s a must have if you have never tried Guerlain bronzers before
Have you tried Guerlain Terracotta bronzer? What’s your fave bronzer?

I have another blush to show you today. I bought this during my trip to Hongkong two weeks ago. I am not sure whether this blush is already available in Singapore but according to Ruby’s blog, this blush is available in Changi Airport DFS retailing at $75.50. I bought this in Hongkong at HKD460 . The price in Hongkong and Changi airport is about the same.
I have a soft spot for beautiful blush. When I saw this blush for the first time, it certainly reminds me of Les Tendres de Chanel in Les Roses and Blush Horizon de Chanel. I love gradient blush and only by looking at its pretty look, I feel happy (That’s how shallow I am LOL :p) I really can’t resist this pretty looking blush and let’s go onto the review
The casing of this blush is in white color and it comes with a white velvety pouch. When you open the case, you can see how pretty the blush is. There’s a G logo embossed on the blush and you can see that “Guerlain” logo in the silver metal outer casing. This blush also comes with with a pink brush. This pink brush is placed under the blush. So this blush casing has two layers; the top one for the blush and the bottom layer for the brush. Although the brush is cute but it’s not as soft as my current blush brush so I don’t think I will use it as much.
The Texture & Color:
Guerlain Cherry Blossom Blush has 4 different shades. The top layer is a golden & pink shimmer (yes it’s a high pink & golden shimmer although it doesn’t look too shimmery in the pan). The second layer is a frosty sheer white shade. The third layer is a bubblegum pink with less shimmer and it’s the most pigmented among the 4 shades. The bottom shade is another shimmery pink. When swatched, the shade looks similar with the shade at the top layer but this one leans more onto pink rather than golden.
The texture is rather dry. I am surprised that the quality is not as good as what I expect it to be. The blush contains heavy shimmer and the color isn’t that pigmented. On the pan, the color looks very promising but when swatched, it’s actually quite sheer and the color does not show up as what I have expected. If you are a frequent reader of Memoiselle, you’d know that I am a lover for everything that contains shimmer. But for this one, I have to say that I dislike the heavy shimmer. It looks way too shimmery for my liking and the pink color does not balance the heavy shimmer.
Guerlain has made another great looking blush. However as much as I would love to like this product, I just can’t. The texture is dry and the color is just meh. I am actually thinking to pair this with a pigmented matte blush and use it more as a cheek highlighter. In that way, I won’t be wasting too much product.
I hope this review helps Have you had the same experience with a product that you expect to work well but turned out to be a disappointment? Share with me in the comment box.
