Kitty Kouture is a short but sweet collection, and it will rob you blind after you take one look at all of the Swarovski crystals on the blinged out compact. For those wondering, the bling-bling kitty chain on the dazzleglasses is removable. The packaging for the dazzleglasses is well-done with black box packaging with a glittery kitty on the outside (not Swarovski crystals!). The kitty charm has a clear plastic sheet overlayed on the front and back, to only be removed if you want to reduce the value ;P
The compact is silver with plenty of Swarovski crystals, and inside is the sheer mystery powder. I’m not a big fan of the sheer mystery powder; it just doesn’t do anything for me. It’s like a subpar to average pressed powder. I also find the shade range very limiting–Medium Plus is too dark but Light Medium is too light! I overheard a lot of people are getting Dark Secret–I’m thinking maybe people are going to contour with it instead. I really see this compact as a collector’s item, and by that, I do mean Hello Kitty collector’s item.
Kitty Kouture is a sheer, glittery/shimmery milky pink shade. It’s really not going to give you a ton of color, but it is pretty and catches the eye. I would say of the two dazzleglasses from KK, this is the one that dazzled me the most. (Oh, punny.)
Dazzlepuss is a slightly darker, deeper pink–kind of like a medium pink–with just as much glitter in it. It has more color to it in the swatch, but it’s still very sheer on the lips. This one may show up as a light pink tint if your lips aren’t too pigmented.

Guerlain Terracotta Collection | March 2009
Terracotta Mineral Flawless Bronzing Powder $65.00
Inspired by the colours in the warm glow of the earth, this groundbreaking bronzing powder harnesses the unifying power of minerals to offer an incredibly natural-looking tan and a flawless finish. Without a trace of coverage, skin will radiate with a natural glow all day as the super-fine powder glides and melts into the skin instantly and invisibly.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Light, 02 Medium, 03 Dark.
Terracotta Eau sous le Vent Soothing Moisturizing Mist $55.00
A delicious mist that improves hydration in the skin and amplifies the tan while enchanting the senses with a sun-soaked scent. Its refreshing texture is enriched with a vegetable protein to bathe the skin in softness and protect against the dryness and heat of summer. Moisture levels in the skin are increased up to 35% as the Tan Booster complex simultaneously works to enhance and prolong your tan day after day.
Terracotta Huile du Voyageur Nourishing Dry Oil SPF 8 $59.00
Sensuous and nourishing this silky-light, dry oil leaves the skin with a divinely smooth and luscious finish. The lightly perfumed scent of the Tiare flower immediately takes you to an exotic, faraway paradise while the oil’s Tan Booster Technology and Roucou, a reddish-brown vegetable pigment, intensify the golden colour of your skin. The soft, satin finish is radiantly accented with an iridescent veil made of golden mother-of-pearl particles.
Terracotta Baume au Coeur High-Shine Soothing Lip Balm $30.00
Three natural ingredients, wild mango butter, marula oil and luffa oil, combine to create a highly moisturizing and protective formula. The luxurious texture is enriched with micro-sponges that glide onto the lips and plump them with moisture. Three shades were specially created to enhance the lips’ natural colour, making delicious accents for a glowing tan all summer.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Rose Venus, 02 Coeur Caramel, 03 Cocoa Love
Kabuki Brush $52.00
Elegant and delicate, with a handle in lacquered wood, the Guerlain Kabuki brush is incredibly dense with high-quality goat hair. As a result, it can pick up more bronzing pigment than any other brush, which it “crushes” and smoothes generously onto skin for optimal, uniform results.
Fard Indien Mineral Eyeshadow (LIMITED EDITION) $35.00
A loose mineral powder for the eyes with intense colours that melt onto the skin for a shimmering, radiant finish. The eyes appear illuminated, glowing and exotic.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Paradise Sand, 02 Holy Smoke, 03 Jungle Dust.
Kajal Mineral Khol (LIMITED EDITION) $35.00
This rich, ultra-smooth stick glides colour onto the inner rim of the lower eyelid with a high concentration of pigments that emphasizes the eyes with a new intensity. Available in: 01 Black Fakhir
Gloss Cashmere Velvet Matte Gloss (LIMITED EDITION) $28.00
Combining the lightness of a gloss and the velvety matte finish of a lipstick, it envelops the lips like a second skin that is comfortable, velvety and non-sticky. As soft as cashemere, it covers the smile with colour that is matte and intense.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Rose Pondichery, 02 Beige Bengali, 03 Rouge Sultan
Availability: Terracotta collection is available beginning March 2009 at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman.
