Guerlain Winter Fairy Tale Collection for Holiday 2015

Imagine a quiet winter evening. Snow lending its brightness to the steel grey sky from which it falls. Snowflakes glistening as they float through the air and fall on the still ground beneath. These are the inspirations behind Guerlain’s much anticipated, limited edition Winter Fairy Tale Holiday 2015 Collection. The festive assortment captivates, dazzles and entices with its a stunning array of makeup and powders. Encased in whimsical, elegant packaging, this entire collection takes skin from dull and dry to radiant and glowing regardless of the cool winter weather.

Meteorites Perles des Neiges ($80.00) (Limited Edition)

For the first time, Météorites pearls transform into perfectly-sculpted white snowflakes to reflect the facets of a prism of light. When married together, the Météorites snowflakes and colored pearls give way to a wintry, wonderland finish of frosted light, radiance and iridescence on the face, neck and décolleté. The gorgeous packaging is hard to resist with its delicate white lacquering and subtle gold pattern.

Meteorites Voyage Enchante ($179.00) (Limited Edition)

This impossible-to-resist powder compact is sure to be a collector’s item. The lightweight, angelic white formulation softens the appearance of fine lines and imperfections leaving a more natural, radiant complexion.

This exceptional gold palette has a little secret — two layers of stunning, must-have colors. The top compartment reveals an array of five iridescent eyeshadows to illuminate and sculpt, while the lower portion houses 2 matte blushes in rosewood and coral shades, and 2 pearlescent blushes in pink and iridescent red.

Guerlain KissKiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balms

Guerlain KissKiss Roselip ($37.00 for 0.09 oz.) is new for fall, and it is designed to be a tinted lip balm that is supposed to hydrate, comfort, and protect the skin with a “subt[le] tint.” It’s available in six shades, and I have three of the six. While Morning Rose is said to be colorless, there is some color, but it was certainly the sheerest of the three I tried. The other two had more noticeable color–translucent, semi-sheer coverage. The formula is comfortable to wear with a very light tackiness and is moderately hydrating. It had a perfume-y scent but no discernible taste.
