Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is described as “mauve, violet, white, and purple.” It’s a mix of purples, really, with varying finishes from iridescent to frosted to satin (no mattes here, though). I wore the lightest shade as an inner corner highlight, then used the mauve shade on the inner half of the lid with the lavender shade on the outer half of the lid, and used the darkest purple shade to define the crease.

Guerlain Ballade (600) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Ballade (600) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm-toned, rosy coral with a frosted finish. Applied, it seems to take on a rosier appearance (less coral) due to the natural pink tones in my lip color. Chanel Orchidee is redder. Revlon Pink Truffle is comparable in color but has a glossier, less frosted finish. Thierry Mugler Feeling is brighter. NARS Mayflower has less frost and is a touch redder. Rimmel Latino is less warm-toned.

Guerlain Spring 2013 Collection: Cils D’Enfer


Guerlain Spring 2013 Collection: Cils D’Enfer

Meteorites Perles du Paradis ($70.00) (Limited Edition)

To illuminate skin with an angelic halo, Guerlain’s legendary pearls are getting a boost and coming out in an XXL limited edition size. This devilishly beautifying compact features six skin-toned and pastel shades. The traditional correcting colors – blue and green – have been replaced by pink, to brighten dull areas, and silver, to reflect ambient light and ensure one-of-a-kind radiance. Dark zones disappear, grayness is erased and fatigue vanishes. The face lights up and shimmers subtly, revitalized and instantly awakened, as if by magic. This sheer, refreshing effect embellishes absolutely every type of complexion. The soft, caressing, pale pink powder puff is topped with an elegant black bow in tribute to women’s inherently feminine flair.

Ecrin 4 Couleurs ($59.00) (Limited Edition)

Two exciting, colorful new harmonies dress up eyelids like never before. The four silky powders in each case can be freely mixed and matched, without worrying about applying them in any particular order. In a subtle play of light and shadow, of contrast and graduated intensity, each hue has just the right texture and nuance – velvety and delicate, slightly iridescent, or downright metallic – so they can be blended or layered to perfection, creating incomparable radiance under the unique springtime light.

  • 501 Attrape-Coeur Dazzling palette in which mauve, violet, and white illuminate the prima donna purple

Guerlain Liu Shimmer Powder Face & Body

Guerlain Liu Shimmer Powder Face & Body ($88.00 for 0.61 oz.) is a loose iridescent powder that is dispersed by squeezing a black bulb. It’s really the elegant packaging that attracts the most attention, I’d say. It’s very fun to squeeze and spray the powder. I’d describe the particle size as sparkle; larger than shimmer, smaller than micro-glitter–looks very fine on, but it’s too much for just a subtle glow or highlight to the face. For a fun holiday look, one could surely use it on the face, but it’s not an everyday-kind of sparkle. I like it best in hair, decolletage, and legs. It’s a lot like Chanel Reverie but with a sheerer base and more sparkle. MAC Silver Dusk is more silvered, but it is also similar.
