Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara Launches

Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara

As reported by WWD, Guerlain will debut its newest mascara–Noir G de Guerlain–in January 2012. If you’re familiar with the Rouge G de Guerlain Lipsticks, the packaging will seem familiar. The “tubes” are made of Zamac with black lacquer. WWD mentions that both products’ packaging has mirrors and is refillable (could it be? Rouge Gs will be refillable in 2012?).

The Noir G formula is designed to lengthen and curl lashes, provide lash regeneration with artemia salina, and stimulate the production of keratin. It is also scented with peach, rose, jasmine, and white musk. Noir G will retail for $49.00 ($26.00 for refills), and it will launch initially at Saks Fifth Avenue on December 26th and roll out to other locations in January.

MAC Ice Parade Pearl Iced Delights Eye Bag

MAC Pearl Iced Delights Eye Bag ($45.00) includes Taupeless (lavender pink), Celestial Black (rich blue-black with red pearl), and Purple Dash (purple), along with a full-sized Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara and 275SE brush. There are three different Eye Bags and all three contain both the mascara and special edition brush, but the eyeshadow duo and eyeliner vary. MAC Ice Parade launches on October 27th, 2011 in-stores.

  • Taupeless is an icy pink with subtle cool undertones and silver sparkle. It has a lustre finish, which means it is prone to fall out. The pigmentation is so-so with some underlying sheerness. This particular shade is a repromote. It is similar to MAC Seedy Pearl, which has a smoother finish.
  • Celestial Black is a burgundy-tinted black with red shimmer. It has a velvet finish. It’s dry, stiff, and tends to work better when used with a fluffy brush (like the 222). The color payoff is underwhelming. MAC Beauty Marked isn’t as black-based.
  • Purple Dash is a purple-plum with fuchsia-purple shimmer. It’s creamier than the limited edition Technakohls from the holiday colour collection. This is part of the permanent range. It is similar to Make Up For Ever #4L.

This kit would be a skip for me, because the fall out from Taupeless combined with the stiffness of Celestial Black make it less than appealing at $45. The mascara and special edition 275 are nice additions but likely not the reason you were interested in it! I think some will love the bag, while others will hate it. It’s very soft and squishy, so it feels cheap to me, though it is lined and feels durable enough.
