In 2011, the Terracotta Bronzing Powder continues to stake its claim in history with a new contemporary case and an expanded range of 8 shades.

For Blondes – 3 pink-toned shades: 00, 02 and 04. For Brunettes – 4 golden-toned Shades: 01, 03, 05, 07. For Dark Skin – a touch of copper: 08

Terracotta Skin ($49.00)

Terracotta Jambes de Gazelles ($59.00) (Limited Edition)

A fresh tinted mist that gives the legs a natural mistake-proof bronzing look that lasts all day long and washes off. Available in Blondes, Brunettes.

Guerlain Rouge Automatique Lipstick for Spring 2011

Guerlain Rouge Automatique to Launch

In April, Guerlain will launch Rouge Automatique, a 25-color range of lipstick. Each shade is named for a Guerlain fragrance from the past, present, or future. Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain’s creative director, stated that it’s supposed to be somewhere between Guerlain’s Rouge G and Kiss Kiss Lipstick Lines. It’s texture is to be a balance of shiny and long-lasting (3 hours), have a “second skin effect” such that it becomes liquid when it touches the lips. The pigments are encapsulated in glass, which are supposed to make the colors truer and more vivid. Though no price was listed, it sounds like it will be in the upper $30s range (KissKiss being $31 and Rouge G being $46).

Guerlain Orange Euphorique (45) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Orange Euphorique (45) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted tangerine orange with a little pinkiness in it, which is probably what keeps it from venturing into neon territory. It has soft, pale gold micro-shimmer and a glossy finish. Not quite opaque but nearly there (you can see a hint of my lip freckle peeking through).

Guerlain d’Un Soupir (187) Eyeshadow

Guerlain d’Un Soupir (187) Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, dark brown with warm amber peeking through the base with silvery-white micro-shimmer. It has a very rich, satiny finish–not too frosty but certainly not lacking in dimension and some sparkle. Whether it is used wet or dry, it applies beautifully and intensely.

Guerlain Rose Desir (71) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Rose Desir (71) Rouge G Lipstick ($47.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft rosy pink with pale pink and white shimmer. It has a slightly glossy finish and semi-opaque color. It has a little milkiness to the base color. This particular shade is new and limited edition for spring and comes in special edition black lacquered packaging. (You can see the black lacquered packaging here.)  It actually feels a bit more like the Rouge G Brilliant formula than the typical Rouge G–not quite as opaque, still very emollient and creamy but not as long-wearing.

Guerlain D’une Etreinte (143) Eyeshadow

Guerlain D’une Etreinte (143) Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright snow white; it’s not quite icy–there is some hidden warmth there that keeps it from being cool-toned. It is definitely a near-blinding kind of white, though, with a rich metallic finish. When applied dry, it is still nicely pigmented, but used wet, it seems slightly smoother and the metallic sheen is more visible.
