Guerlain’s Summer Splash Collection is the latest offering from the ultra luxe brand. It features several products from waterproof mascara to eyeshadows to a quad to loose powder kohl. I wasn’t able to try everything out, but I did get to try several items, and likely the more “hot ticket” items, so hopefully it’ll help you when you’re trying to make your hauling decisions! :)

Perles des Mers Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00) is the item that caught my attention the most when I first learned about the collection. It’s not quite as head-turning in person (it’s just not quite as bright), but it’s still a good interpretation of what it is. I’d say the only color that wasn’t quite as bright as I expected was the teal shade. The lightest shade is a soft white with a pink undertone. The second lightest color is a frosty, white-peach shade. The third lightest color is a dirty bronzy-gold shade, kind of like a light antique gold. The final shade is the teal color, which is a teal-blue with green sheen/overlay. It’s an interesting mix of teal and noticeable green. I think these shades work well together, and I like that there are some lighter shades to mix with the teal. I’m not 100% sold on the quad yet, but I think it’s definitely worth taking a peek at.

Paradise Sand, Jungle Dust

Guerlain’s Terracotta Collection was an early summer sleeper collection. It consisted of products from bronzing powders to lip balms to mineral eyeshadows. Here’s a review of several of the products from the collection! :)

Paradise Sand and Jungle Dust Mineral Eyeshadows ($35.00 each) are loose, mineral eyeshadows kept in a convenient package. You twist the top off, and when you pull it out, there’s a wand attached to it, and it is the wand that picks up the color. This packaging makes it so I don’t get a big puff of mineral makeup all over my sink counter, for which I am quite happy!

I absolutely LOVED the Gloss Cashmere Velvet Matte Glosses ($28.00 each). They came in Rose Pondichery, Beige Bengali, and Rouge Sultan. These are really the stand out products from the launch. Rose Pondichery is a rosey-beige; Beige Bengali is a deeper brownish-beige shade; and Rouge Sultan is an unforgivably scarlet red.

I did also try High Shine Soothing Lip Balm ($30.00 each) in Coeur Caramel and Cocoa Love. Both shades are extremely sheer, but they are emollient and hydrating on lips. I can’t say that they’re worth $30 a pop, but they’re nice if you’ve got the money to spend. I’d much rather put my budget towards the glosses from this launch!
