Am I the only one that thinks the packaging is just as important as the makeup itself? Maybe not JUST AS IMPORTANT, but seriously though… Packaging for me is what gets me all jazzed up about a product before even opening the packaging and it is one thing that Guerlain has mastered. Since the beginning of the brand their packaging has always been fantastic and I have been a fan for a really long time. I actually have two vintage bottles of Guerlain Shalimar on top of my dresser because they are just so beautiful. Today I am going to share with you a couple items from Guerlain Fall 2015. The Écrin 6 Couleurs in Beaugrenelle and the new KissKiss Roselip in Pink Me Up.
And like I mentioned before, isn’t the packaging just gorgeous?
Écrin 6 Couleurs Beaugrenelle
A master of powders, a magician of eyeshadows and a genius of colours, Guerlain introduces a wardrobe of six eyeshadows to give free rein to your creativity and desires. Like a jewel, the intense colour is placed at the centre of the case. The gradations take the form of different tones of four shadows to use as you wish, to your heart’s desire. The liner is nestled vertically to the right. It traces the eyes with a delicate touch.
The six precious eyeshadows, enriched with Moonstone, offer an interplay of three different textures: iridescent, matte and satiny. Make-up becomes intuitive and foolproof, subtly guided by the placement of the colours, which allow for a “tone-on-tone”, “couture” or “smoky” effect.
Eyes are embellished and customised: from the most natural to the most sophisticated look!
The shades are gorgeous. It is probably the most sophisticated collection of blues and greys that I have every seen paired together. The top left shade is actually a gorgeous grey-taupe shade that is my favorite. You know me: taupe crazed.
KissKiss Roselip Pink Me Up
Guerlain imagines KissKiss Roselip, its first hydrating and plumping colored lip balm infused with essential oil of rose.
Lips as soft and smooth as petals of rose, deserve the most delicate attention and the most luminous colors. Subtly colored, the lips are adorned with a soft and natural glow.
Kiss Kiss Roselip offers 6 shades for naturally irresistible lips, inspired by the delicate hues of freshly hatched roses. Most vibrant colors for every woman and every mood: from charming red to romantic pink.
This is a gorgeous pink shade. I don’t typically do a lot of pink lips because sometimes I feel that a strong pink lip on me does me no favorites, but the fact that this is a balm and slightly sheer actually works in my favor. I am loving it.
I think that the pretty pink shade pairs well with the blue grey tone of the Beaugrenelle palette.
Overall I am blown away by the gorgeous shades in the Guerlain Beaugrenelle palette and the KissKiss Roselip balm is never leaving my handbag. Now that I know I am in love with these I want to own everything from Guerlain Fall 2015. You can find these products at Nordstrom, Selfridge’s on guerlain.com.
