Guerlain’s Exotic Paradise Collection featured three stunning shades of KissKiss Gloss ($28.00). I was just so drawn to the glosses, because they looked stunning (and Guerlain packaging is tops)–most especially together. I have to admit that these colors do remind me more of summery months than they do spring, but whatever, I’ll take pretty colors any day of the year, seasonally appropriate or not!
Guerlain Exotic Paradise Collection is my favorite spring launch so far. (I admit, NARS’ Heart of Desire Collection looks very promising!) I’ve seen a fair amount of the spring collections released, and I really fell in love with Guerlain’s presentation, mix of colors, and especially the Exotic Paradise quad ($58.00). Guerlain has some of the best packaging of the higher end brands, because each product is housed in a metal compact/casing. It just feels more luxe than plastic, you know?
Lipstick/lipglass swatches on lips for all of you! I ask for your understanding in the neatness of application, as I do these quickly and inexpertly–the point being to show you the color on real lips. Thanks! 🙂
MAC Flourish Lipstick ($22.00) on my lips! 🙂 Oh yeah, Flourish is a lighter, pinker version of Queen’s Sin. They’re similar, but they aren’t the same–Queen’s Sin packs a lot more oomph and it’s redder.
