Guerlain · Holiday 2018 Collection

 

 

Guerlain’s annual holiday offering is one that is highly anticipated each year, and this year’s iteration is not only gorgeous to look at & perfectly wearable, but also honours a beauty milestone as the brand celebrates its 190th Birthday. With a collection comprising of just a few pieces, they all nevertheless manage to pack quite an impact … done in true Guerlain elegant style, of course.

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.
