Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation

Lingerie De Peau Invisible Skin Fusion SPF 20 ($57.00 for 1 fl. oz.) is a lightweight, natural-finish foundation with light to light-medium coverage. It’s one of the most lightweight and natural-looking foundations that still gives adequate coverage for minor skin imperfections. If you have just a couple of small areas where you need medium coverage, it is workable to build up medium coverage on a spot-by-spot basis.

Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara Launches


Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara

As reported by WWD, Guerlain will debut its newest mascara–Noir G de Guerlain–in January 2012. If you’re familiar with the Rouge G de Guerlain Lipsticks, the packaging will seem familiar. The “tubes” are made of Zamac with black lacquer. WWD mentions that both products’ packaging has mirrors and is refillable (could it be? Rouge Gs will be refillable in 2012?).

The Noir G formula is designed to lengthen and curl lashes, provide lash regeneration with artemia salina, and stimulate the production of keratin. It is also scented with peach, rose, jasmine, and white musk. Noir G will retail for $49.00 ($26.00 for refills), and it will launch initially at Saks Fifth Avenue on December 26th and roll out to other locations in January.

Guerlain Shalimar Eau de Parfum Review & Photos

The notes of Shalimar are bergamot, lemon, jasmine, rose, May rose, iris, incense, opopanax, tonka bean, and vanilla. It opens with an intense burst of the bergamot where the crisp citrus gives it a very cool feel, but it warms up quickly with a heady smokiness that’s marked by spice and leather. As it progresses, the final scent on me is a sweetened, spicy vanilla with the warmth and coziness of amber and sandalwood. It’s not the sweetened vanilla of a dessert, but richer, deeper, less sugary and cloyingly sweet. It is rather powdery on me, more notably in the earlier hours of the scent and decreases over time until it’s all but vanished by the third hour.

Guerlain Nuit d’Amour Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Nuit d’Amour (170) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “black red that reveals an intense plum color.” It’s definitely a shade that will intimidate at glance; it looks burgundy-brown-black with twinkles of ruby shimmer in the tube, but it’s so, so different when swatched or worn. The description sounds like they did this deliberately (“reveals”). It’s reddish-pink burgundy with hints of plum and ruby micro-shimmer. Even though the shimmer is there, it’s so fine and sparse that it’s rather subtle.  MAC Rebel is redder and brighter. Guerlain Bee looks quite similar on, but it has less red in it (and more opacity). YSL Forbidden Burgundy is a little brighter and redder but still rather similar.
