Guerlain | EXOTIC PARADISE | Spring 2009
A hymn to the glory of nature
As the winter days come to close, Guerlain rejoices in the frivolity of the season that heralds happiness and abundance. With the spring come new hopes and a carefree spirit, boosted by luxuriant and jubilant nature. To celebrate the triumph of spring, Olivier Échaudemaison has created a rich collection drawn from an eccentric, eclectic garden of Eden, a colorful kaleidoscope of nature’s prettiest, most sensual colors and organic delights.With his exotic palette, he concocts color that stirs optimism, awakens purity and arouses a desire for paradise that hibernates within every woman.

Ombre Éclat Eye Primer
Using a neutral skin color, a radiant beige, this unifying base was specifically created to prime the skin for makeup and guarantee perfect hold. It is also formulated as a treatment enriched with smoothing and moisturizing agents, in order to protect the delicate skin on the eyelids from the damaging effects of time and environment. It smoothes and revives the eyes at once, creating the ideal base for impeccable eye makeup.

Dior’s Goldfever Quint | I love Dior quints for their versatility and how the colors pair so well together. I’m a sucker for golds, so this quint is especially (well, hell, the whole collection) to my taste. Subtle summer shimmers will work well for easy day time looks and even for subdued evening eyes. The gray-mauve and berry-mauve are both deep and dark enough to work as crease colors or to create smoky eyes. My only complaint is that the level of frost in the finish is a bit high to be universally appealing–I’m okay with it, but I do find that sometimes I’ll opt to use a different color (not from the quint) for highlighting my brow.

Givenchy’s Prismissime Mat & Glow in Harmony #72 | A small compact palette in checkboard style that features nine squares of color. The first and third columns are matte colors, while the second column consists of shimmery choices. For summer, Givenchy offers Harmony #71 for fairer complexions, while #72 is for warmer/tanner complexions (like mine). I like that they’re separated, because it gives you the opportunity to use them alone, rather than together, but because they are also close together, you could also gently sweep a blush brush over it for an all-over color. The palette can be used on eyes, cheeks, face, or even your decolletage, making it very versatile and multi-tasking. This gives me a nice light bronze on cheeks, and the shimmer lets me highilght cheekbones precisely or lighten up a deeper summer bronze.
