Spring is busting out all over! Well, news of spring collections, anyway. And Guerlain’s collection looks pretty bold!
Here’s what’s coming:
A new Meteorites compact, “Pressed Illuminating and Mattifying Powder” (how does it do both?). Meteorites — pressed or loose pearls — have always come in a range of candy-colored pastel shades, which miraculously combine to become invisibly illuminating on the skin. These new compacts look skin-colored on the surface, but contain miniscule, multicoloured, radiant pearly particles. The compact is $56 and will be available in three shades.
Rouge G Serie Noire lipstick — four limited edition Rouge G lipsticks in Bond-James-Bond black cases. The shades are 71 Rose Desir, 70 Fushia Delice, 45 Orange Euphorique, and 24 Rouge Sensuel. I notice Guerlain has ditched the “G” names for this collection. These will be $46 each.
Blush G Serie Noire. For a long time, Guerlain blushes have been extremely subtle in pigment. Limited edition Blush G looks vibrant and gorgeous. It’s $65, packaged in a black case to match the Serie Noire lipsticks.
A new Ecrin 6 Couleurs eyeshadow palette! Â I haven’t stopped wanting these gorgeous six-shade palettes since I first swatched them last summer. This spring, Guerlain introduces a sixth: Rue de Rivoli in nudes and purples. Rue de Rivoli is $84 like the others, but she’s limited edition.
