Guerlain Bal de Mai (160) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

The formula is creamy without being thick or heavy, and it is actually a moisturizing formula.   It’s soft and feels like silk when applied.  I find these comparable to the Rouge G lipstick, though not as thick or as opaque, but still similar enough.  They’re $11 cheaper than the Rouge Gs, but the colors still have the same depth and nuanced shade range that makes Guerlain lipstick always standout to me.  To see more photos of the packaging, check out this post.  I did find that the slider on this particular tube was stiffer than others, which reduced the functionality/utility.

Orchidee Imperiale Longevity Concentrate ($490.00)

Available in September 2011. Without a doubt, Guerlain is the master of the Orchid. From one end of the world to the other, within the three centers of the Guerlain Orchidarium (the Experimental Garden in Switzerland, the Basic Research Laboratory in France, and the Exploratory Nature Reserve in China), top international experts continuously exchange their expertise, research, and the results of their applied experiments, to uncover the secrets of longevity of this legendary flower. Three Orchid species were chosen from among 30,000 studied and together they form the New-Generation Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract (OME). Together these orchids combine to create an internal and external longevity protection system utilized in our new Orchidee Imperiale Longevity Concentrate. Results are skin is immediately smoothed and tightened as if lifted, gradually all signs of aging are reduced as the formula acts on wrinkles, firmness, density, radiance, and stretched pores, and the surface texture of the skin becomes finer and more even.

availability: August 2011

Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadows

Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadows ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) are new for summer and come in three varieties. Guerlain claims they are heat and water-resistant that “will last from dawn to dusk.” Each shadow is housed in a square glass tube with a metal cap–the packaging is very reminiscent of lipgloss, even down to the doe-footed applicator.  The packaging is a good mix of functionality and aesthetic appeal, but the glass makes these less portable.

Guerlain Terracotta Mosaic Compact

Guerlain Terracotta Mosaic Compact ($69.00 for 0.98 oz.) is a mega-sized face and body bronzer with Guerlain’s signature Gs intertwined in a mosaic pattern. This is certainly more of a collector’s item, particularly in light of the price tag, though you get nearly an ounce of bronzer.
