Introduction to Guerlain
I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?
A Few Notes | I’m a long-time fan of Guerlain’s liquid foundations, though the shade range is limited, but if you can find a good match, they’re worth considering. Two of my favorite setting powders are Guerlain’s Les Voilettes Loose and the pressed (better value in the loose). I really enjoy Maxilash (Volumizing and Curling) for a fluttery, feathery lash that doesn’t get clumpy (it is also more forgiving if you have to reapply hours later). They are well-known for their Meteorites Perles and Terracotta bronzers, both of which I enjoy, but you’ll need to pick the shade that works for you (with the Perles, most will be universal with some being too pigmented for very fair skin tones as a finishing powders or too white-based for darker skin tones).
Their brushes have always disappointed me. Their current powder blush formula along with their eyeshadow formula tend to be more often a miss than a hit. Keep in mind that a lot of their products are scented, some more heavily than others, so depending on your tolerance or preference for scent, you may want to check that out first.
