Guerlain · Two-Tone Blush

 

Guerlain recently launched Two-Tone Blush, cheek duos comprised of blush & highlighter in one compact that are meant to recreate the ‘draping technique’ (i.e.: blush that goes from cheeks to temples) — an effect which appears to be quite ‘in’ at the moment, but in reality has actually been used by makeup artists for decades. Trend factor aside, the two shades have something else working for them: beautiful, wearable, colour.

Guerlain · Aqua Allegoria Eau de Toilette

 

The House of Guerlain has a long & storied history in the world of fragrance, having composed masterpieces such as Shalimar (which I absolutely love, for the record) amongst others. Then in 1999, Aqua Allegoria — a new fresh range of fragrances, was created to compliment the brand’s impressive roster … and caught the attention of a younger demographic, along with those who wanted to dip their toes (so to speak) in the Guerlain olfactory experience. For my part, I only recently tried these on for size and my jaw dropped; how have I missed wearing these fragrances until now?

Guerlain · Make it a Terracotta Summer

 

Maybe it’s because I’m born in July, but I’m a Summer girl through & through, and nothing captures the spirit of the season better than Guerlain’s Terracotta — especially this glorious fragrance. But the venerable house hasn’t stopped there, having released several other products under the Terracotta banner that are definitely worthy of the name.

Guerlain · Terracotta After Summer 2018

 

From the brand that has mastered the art of the faux glow, comes two new Terracotta bronzers, Sahara Jewel and Sous Les Palmiers. Intended to keep that Summer radiance going even when the weather begins to cool, I personally will be using both all year round because, well … just look at them. Not convinced? No problem — I’ll let the pictures (& swatches) do the talking.

Guerlain · Météorites Le Parfum

 

 

Inspired by the brand’s cult-fave beauty pearls, Guerlain has recently expanded the Météorites universe with the launch of the first ever bespoke fragrance, Météorites Le Parfum. Master perfumer (and my friend!) Thierry Wasser wanted to capture the freshness and subtlety of the makeup pearls’ iconic violet scent — almost as though the wearer were entering the Météorites pearl workshop … and yes, there actually is a workshop where only 3 people know the exact formulation for these pearls, and mix every batch by hand; crazy, am I right? And although I’ve yet to visit this fabled workshop for myself, after test-driving this lovely scent for some time now, I’d say Monsieur Wasser has most definitely succeeded.
