So, the holiday collections have rolled out, and I haven’t even caught my breath yet and the next season’s makeup collections already have ads popping up everywhere! So, this is what it feels like to be updated with beauty news. I gotta say, I am a little bit scared!
But of course, I’m excited, too. Holiday 2012 saw a lot of plums, muted tones, reds and golds, and metallics. The thing I’ve noticed for most of the Spring 2013 collections I’ve seen is that they are trying to push bright, youthful eye looks.
Here are a few items that I’m anticipating from Guerlain’s Spring 2013 offerings:
Ah, I have been smitten with Guerlain ever since I purchased the Turandot quad from the Holiday 2012 collection. I’ve looked many-a-time at the Guerlain counter in Rustan’s Makati, on the off-chance that one of the other quads will catch my eye, but that has yet to happen—until now. Can you guess what it is that I am dying to try out?
Yep, the Écrin 4 Couleurs in Coup de Foudre! Here’s how Guerlain’s PR describes the quad shades: green, silvery patina, bronze-khaki, vibrant coral. I don’t know about you, but PR pictures sans swatches are enough to make me drool!
I’ve never tried Guerlain mascaras, but I’m extremely curious about the violet shade! Also, what is that I spy in the background of the center photo? Could it be a limited edition météorites brush?
Speaking of Météorites… Here’s Perles du Paradis! Krysty alerted me to this a couple of weeks ago, but it’s only now that I saw an official press photo for it! From the photo, it seems that there are five colors: a matte lavender, a shimmery grey-green, a semi-shimmery fuschia, a matte cream/off-white, and a matte pale pink. Eenteresting… Do I want it?
Is that even a question!
And for lip products, it seems that they have six shades, two for each of the three different formulations. I haven’t tried these yet, so I can’t say which texture I would like to try the best, but I’m eyeing the Rouge Automatique in #600 Ballade and the Shine Automatique in #762 Rendez-vous. Too pretty! Not feeling any of the glosses, though.
Judging from my “personal picks,” I can’t possibly pay for all of it, so I think I will probably end up trying the Écrin 4 Couleurs eyeshadow palette in Coup de Foudre, and—if I had to pick one lip product—the Rouge Automatique in #600 Ballade. I can probably live without the météorites. Probably.
If I can get over the pretty.
How about you? Anything from the Guerlain Spring 2013 collection that tickles your fancy?
