Guerlain Russian Beauty Collection for Fall 2009

Guerlain Slavic Beauty/Russian Beauty Collection for Fall 2009

As Guerlain’s muse, Natalia Vodianova inspired Creative Director, Olivier Échaudemaison to conceive a warm, bohemian-inspired colour collection for the Fall. Olivier calls Natalia “an icon of colour that brings energy and cheer when the nights are long and the skies grey, and when the days are short and the sun away.” In effort to capture the radiance, warmth and richness that Natalia emanates, Guerlain offers a fall look defined by a fresh, smooth complexion, bright cheeks, eyes shimmering in a crimson glow and sparkling, rosy lips.

From Moscow with Love, Guerlain’s Russian Beauty Colour Collection includes the following permanent and limited edition products:

Eyes and Lips Palette “Volga Princess” ($69.00)

In sumptuous black-and-gold packaging, reminiscent of the emblematic ornaments of Slavic art, Guerlain has placed the perfect soft pink and delicate taupe shades for the eyes to accent two lip colours of rosewood and sparkling pink. This all-in-one palette is the perfect accessory for a quick, easy and elegant touch-up.

Ombre Éclat 4 Shades Eye Shadow 406 “Tsarina” ($56.00)

Faded orange, brick red, old rose and aubergine combine to create an intense, rich and enchanting palette inspired by the dresses worn by Russian princesses. Accented with a champagne motif, the shades are contained in an exquisitely designed black-and-gold compact and create eyes that are velvet-smooth with a crimson glow, highlighting their pure clarity.

Radiant Blush “Russian Doll” ($42.00)

Guerlain created Russian Doll, a liquid blush with a unique shade of luminous, sheer pink to generate natural radiance and give the cheeks a healthy glow.
