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!
