Beauty: NEW Guerlain Terracotta Products for SS17 #FeelTheSunAndFeelGood

Posted on July 12, 2017

Hi Guys!

If you’re a fan of Guerlain makeup and skincare, you’ll no doubt be aware of their famous Terracotta product range. For SS17, Guerlain have added a few fab new products to their Terracotta collection, including new collector’s items, basics and limited editions, that each promise to illuminate skin with a natural golden glow and revive its radiance…

In 2017, Terracotta has been reinvented and Guerlain has created must-have new products that leave us feeling good inside and out all year round, with or without the sun.  A collection offering a host of face and body rituals, allowing every woman to obtain a natural tan whenever she wishes – while waiting for the sun to appear or under its rays; adjust the intensity for made-to-measure colour; and choose a matte or shimmer finish.

Starting with Terracotta Jolies Jambes (£45.00) – literally meaning ‘pretty legs’, this is Guerlain’s first perfecting and blurring tinted fluid especially for legs. I’d describe the formula as a medium weight fluid, which gives the coverage of a light foundation. Shade Clair / Light which I have gives pale legs a beautiful natural looking glow, whilst instantly blurring away minor blemishes and skin imperfections. The idea kind of reminds me of Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs (which is a spray) – this however is a cream, and it has the most beautiful summery scent with notes of Vanilla and Tiare Flower – it really is gorgeous! The formula also resists sweat and rubbing and is transfer-proof, and to remove, you simply wash it away in the shower with soap.

For the body, I also have the Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil (£41.50) – this is a lightweight dry oil for the face, body and hair. Again with the lovely Tiare Flower scent, the Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil is enriched with Sweet Almond, Camelina and Limnanthus Seed Oil to soothe, protect and nourish skin, as well as a Tan Booster Complex to prepare and enhance the skin’s natural tan. Ideal for all skin types, the Guerlain Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil promises to cocoon skin in intense nourishment.

Guerlain advises to apply a few drops to the face and body to give a satiny finish, or after sun exposure to enhance the skin’s natural tan. Or to use on hair, apply to the lengths for a wet-hair effect, or as a mask for intense nourishment.

I also have a couple of new Terracotta makeup products. For SS17, Guerlain has improved the formula of their limited edition Terracotta Sun Tonic Bronzing Powder (£36.50) so it’s now waterproof – meaning there’s no need to worry about your bronzer wearing off this summer. The delicately milled formulation creates an ultra-fine film to give skin a flawless finish, providing your complexion with long-lasting comfort and moisture, and it’s also been enriched with a Tan Booster Complex, to activate, boost and prolong your tan. I have shade 03 Natural Brunettes which is slightly too dark for my super fair complexion, but would be perfect for those with a light to medium skin tone.

And lastly, I have one of the new Kiss Kiss Shaping Cream Lip Colours (£27.50). Two bold new hues have been introduced to the KissKiss range for SS17, including 567 Pink Sunrise, a romantic rosy red, and 542 Orange Peps which is an intense bright orange shade.

The limited edition Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick shades promise to dress the lips in bold, comfortable colour thanks to its satin-finish and non-drying texture. These lipsticks are enriched with plumping Hyaluronic Acid Spheres and Mango Butter, to immediately smooth and nourish, for a perfected lip look.

Personally, I’m a big fan of bright lipstick shades for summer, any bright oranges or hot pinks will always look good with a tan, so this intense orange shade is the perfect addition to your SS17 lipstick wardrobe.

Guerlain’s Terracotta range is available now at Debenhams and House of Fraser.

Beauty: Guerlain Autumn 2016 Collection

Posted on September 26, 2016

guerlain-autumn-2016-collection

Hi Guys!

Autumn is most definitely in the air now – and it’s probably my favourite time of year. I love that the weather is getting cooler and the nights are starting to draw in, and one of my other favourite things of course is all the Autumn Winter beauty collections!

One of my favourite high end brands, Guerlain, has recently sent over a selection of products from their Autumn 2016 collection – and I think I’m in love! Guerlain A/W 2016 is all about quick, easy and spontaneous make-up. This collection contains ready-to-wear shades for eyes and lips, in chic and easy to apply colours, allowing you to effortlessly customise your look however your mood takes you. This is a collection where there really is something for everyone.

guerlain-eyeshadow-palette-rose-barbare-review

guerlain-eyeshadow-palette-02-tonka-imperiale-review

Starting off with the brand new range of Palette 5 Coleurs (£43.00) – Guerlain have launched six essential and comprehensive eye palettes for AW16. Each including a base to illuminate and even the lid, two mid nude tones to subtly enhance, and two smoky, more sophisticated shades to intensify the whole look. The six palettes are as follows –

  • 01 Rose Barbare – a cool lavender and purple toned palette.
  • 02 Tonka Imperiale – a warm chestnut brown palette.
  • 03 Coque D’Or – a warm gold and bronze themed palette.
  • 04 L’Heure De Nuit – a light and mid grey toned palette.
  • 05 Apres l’Ondee – a cool blue and silver themed palette.
  • 06 Bois Des Indes – a warm pinkish brown toned palette.

The palettes I have above are – 01 Rose Barbare at the top, and 02 Tonka Imperiale – and I’d highly recommend checking the shades out on the House of Fraser site (link at the bottom of the post) as my camera has made the eyeshadows look quite a lot lighter than they are. Trust me when I say it’s worth a look!

I also wanted to point out that Guerlain have included ultra-fine light-reflecting pigments in these shadows, to give brighter, more radiant colour, and the packaging is also rather nice! Being a fan of smaller sized palettes that can easily fit in a makeup bag and be transported – these really do tick all the boxes for me. The Palette 5 Coleurs come in an ultra slim black case, which has a handy panoramic mirror on the inside lid, as well as a couple of dinky brushes included too.

guerlain-lart-du-trait-precision-felt-eyeliner

And next we have the gorgeous L’Art Du Trait Precision Felt Eyeliner (£27.00) – this precision eyeliner pen has been designed to be both long-lasting and water-resistant. It features a long, sharp, flexible tip to ensure a precise line, and it has a super fine tip, making thin, fine lines as easy to draw as thicker, graphic lines on the eyes.

The product formula is the blackest black – which is obviously a must in a black eyeliner – and I can confirm that it’s completely smudge proof, so this will now live permanently in my makeup bag 🙂

guerlain-kisskiss-lipsticks-review

And lastly, Guerlain have included two brand new shades of KissKiss Lipsticks (£27.00) to finish off your autumn look. The two new shades are Fall in Nude – the perfect beige nude, and Fall in Red – a delicate rosy red, which have been created specifically to compliment the new eyeshadow tones. These two subtle shades easily adapt to any skin tone or occasion, from midday to midnight.

Valentines Luxury Gift Guide

Posted on February 10, 2016

valentines-luxury-gift-guide

Hi Guys!

Following on from yesterday’s Affordable Valentine’s Gift Guide, I’ve now gathered together some gorgeous, high end and slightly more expensive beauty treats for you perusal today… enjoy!

The 001 Skincare Hydro Sensitive Replenish Duo (£59.00) contains a 30ml bottle of Rosa Damascena Essence Mist, and 15ml of Active Marine Power Concentrate – presented in a lovely gold clutch bag. These products are perfect for soothing and hydrating dry and sensitive skin. The Rosa Damascena Essence Mist instantly gives skin a burst of moisture, and its blend of 98% Rosa Damascena Flower Oil and Flower Water works as a powerful astringent to reduce inflammation and redness. Just spritz this on for a complexion that’s soothed, hydrated and brightened. The Active Marine Power Concentrate is a super-concentrated serum containing an algae complex to intensively moisturise skin and aid water retention inside our skin’s cells, for a collagen-plumping effect. Its antioxidant rich complex also helps intensively repair and brighten the complexion.

The Burberry Complete Eye Palette in Nude Blush (£40.00) really is a beauty to behold, from the packaging to the actual product, this stunning palette would make the perfect gift. It contains four eye shadow shades including a luminising base to highlight, two buildable colours to add shape and an intense colour to define. This is available in a variety of options, but Nude Blush really caught my eye. Its muted warm spring shades are perfect for those with fairer skin tones like myself.

For those looking to warm up dull winter complexions – i.e. me, Guerlain’s Terracotta Joli Teint (£36.50) is a must have. This is a three-in-one product combining the perfection of foundation with the effect of a skincare product, and the sun-kissed radiance of Terracotta. My complexion often hovers on the dull side of normal, so any products that can make me look a bit brighter and more alive are definitely makeup bag staples for me! This product gives skin a fabulous warming veil of colour, leaving your complexion looking more even and naturally radiant.

And of course I had to include a candle! The Diptyque Rosaviola Valentine 2016 candle (from £28.00) really is a must have for Valentine’s day. Diptyque have teamed up with quirky French fashion designer Olympia Le-Tan to create their limited edition Valentines collection, which includes candles, a scented oval and a solid perfume. The candle is housed in a cuter than cute frosted barbie pink glass, with the sweetest embroidered fabric label – sealed with a kiss. I love that this candle conveys a sense of humour and fun, and it also smells wonderful, with notes of rose, violet, lipstick and leather – just like the inside of a handbag, amazing!

Back to Guerlain again, the Guerlain Precious Light Illuminator (£32.00) is also a fantastic high end product. Similar to YSL’s Touche Eclat, this pen style illuminator is designed to minimise imperfections whilst maximising radiance. This product aimed to erase traces of fatigue with luxurious Gold Radiance Pigments and the Precious Rejuvenating Complex, to offer skin a natural looking glow. The formula contains Myrrh Oil, known for its regenerating properties, and Peptides to lift and smooth.

Next is Tom Ford Lip Colour in Scarlett Rouge (£38.00) Tom Ford’s lipsticks really are the height of luxury, and this beautiful shade Scarlett Rouge is perfect for Valentine’s day. I know £38.00 is a heck of a lot to spend on a single lipstick, and definitely not something I’d buy every day, but I can promise you once you try Tom Ford lippies, you won’t look back! (I also have my eye on the Jasmin Rouge Gift Set too!)

And lastly what would Valentine’s day be without a gorgeous fragrance? Cartier Eau De Cartier EDP (from £52.00) is a new favourite of mine. It’s a citrus, aromatic scent which is surprisingly unisex – and I say surprisingly because I’m usually not keen on unisex fragrances but I think this is rather lovely. Eau De Cartier is definitely more on the feminine side; it’s warm and fresh, yet sensual and sophisticated. It has top notes of Coriander, Yuzu and Bergamot, heart notes of Violet Leaf and Lavender and base notes of Cedar, Patchouli, Musk and White Amber.

I’d love to hear if any of these take your fancy? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

NEW From Guerlain: La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour Collection

Posted on January 26, 2016

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-Lip-Colour

Hi Guys!

I’m so excited today as I have some stunning new products from one of my favourite luxury brands to share with you! Guerlain have just launched their La Petite Robe Noire Collection, which includes a range of 20 lipsticks and 8 nail polishes – and the packaging is GORGEOUS.

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-collection

The press release tells a sweet little story of Guerlain’s character, La Petite Robe Noire…

‘Alone in front of her wardrobe, La Petite Robe Noire is deep in thought. Despite all the wonderful dresses created for her by Thierry Wasser, she lacks that je-ne-sais-quoi that would highlight her femininity, the little added extra that would reveal her true personality: mischievous, Parisian, spectacular, seductive, elusive and yet with a distinctive presence…’

‘Suddenly, she has a flash of inspiration. It’s so obvious! What she needs is, of course… colour!’

La Petite Robe Noire then rushes to see Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain Make-Up Creative Director, and inspired by her energy, he creates the new La Petite Robe Noire collection…

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-Lip-Colour-review

So, what are these lipsticks all about? Well the Petite Robe Noire collection offers easily buildable colour in a massive range of shades, from one swipe for a sheer veil of colour, to three or more if you wish for more intensity. The finish is is very balmy and moisturising, with a light fruity floral scent inspired by the heart notes of La Petite Robe Noire’s fragrance.

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-Lipsticks

The packaging is so pretty, and very unique. The outer casing of the lipstick is made of a clear plastic with a pretty upside down heart on top – again inspired by the original Petite Robe Noire bottle. You can see through this to the inner casing, as well as being able to see the colour of the lipstick underneath.

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-products

There are 20 lipstick shades available, and I have 001 My First Lipstick – giving a beautiful veil of shimmer, it reveals the natural colour of the lips to deliver a tailor-made twist. And 020 Poppy Cap is a bright and summery orange – coral shade.

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-Lip-Colours

Guerlain-La-Petite-Robe-Noire-Lip-Colour-swatches

My First Lipstick gives the most beautiful light sheen to the lips, with an added hint of sparkle, and Poppy Cap, though appearing opaque in the tube, comes out fairly sheer though buildble in colour. Both have a wonderfully creamy, balmy texture that my dry lips just love – as well as a light fragrance which is no where near as strong as I was expecting. I’ve worn these a couple of times now and I can’t get enough of them – I can’t wait to try the nail polishes out too!

The La Petite Robe Noire Shiny Lip Colours and La Petite Robe Noire Shiny Nail Colours are available now exclusively at House of Fraser.

The Best Luxury Beauty Stocking Fillers

Posted on December 7, 2015

luxury-beauty-stocking-fillers

Hi Guys!

If you saw my Budget Beauty Stocking Fillers post a couple of days ago, you’ll know I’d been planning to follow up with a luxury version of this post 🙂 You’ll probably know by now that I’m a complete sucker for high end beauty products, I’m just drawn to anything with beautiful or eye catching packaging like a magpie! So I’ve gathered together some of the best of the more expensive beauty goodies I have, that I think any beauty lover would be thrilled to find in their stocking this Christmas…

Lancome-La-vie-est-belle

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Intense EDP (£69.00) – This is Lancome’s latest version of their much loved original La Vie Est Belle fragrance. La Vie Est Belle EDP Intense includes tuberose and gourmand notes to add depth and intensity to the scent. This was music to my ears as I love tuberose, and I’m usually a fan of ‘intense’ versions of fragrance – and I love this!

The theme of La Vie Est Belle is beauty, joy, and happiness, and I think this definitely comes through in the beautifully sweet fragrance. It’s fruity, creamy and definitely intense – if you’re a fan of sweet perfumes such as Viktor & Rolf’s BonBon, this is a must have for your fragrance wardrobe.

lancome-guerlain-nars

Guerlain Gloss D`Enfer Intense Colour & Shine Sensation (£23.00) – Firstly I must apologise for my photo. The Gloss d`Enfer Intense Colour & Shine Sensation is the most beautiful sparkly gloss I’ve probably ever seen, and no matter how I tried, I just couldn’t capture this for you.

Guerlain’s Limited Edition Maxi Shine Reflects Etoilés makes your lips sparkle like there’s no tomorrow. It’s described as a top coat, but it also looks amazing on it’s own. It has a clear non-sticky base that’s full of multi coloured glitter particles!

Lancome Lancome Vernis In Love – 425 Rouge Midnight (£13.50) – This polish really is everything you need for the perfect Christmas mani. It’s red, check, sparkly, check, and just gorgeous, check! Lancome have launched three new shades of Vernis In Love for Christmas ’15, and Rouge Midnight is the most beautifully glamorous deep red shade, packed full of gold and red micro glitter.

NARS Rouge A Levres Lipstick (£20.00) – NARS lipsticks are just fantastic, I own quite a few of them now in varying shades and I’ve never been disappointed with a purchase. I highly recommend their Semi Matte and Audacious ranges. They come in a massive range of shades too, so there will definitely be something to suit everyone.

Guerlain-Terracotta-Joli-Teint-Natural-Healthy-Glow-Powder-Duo

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Natural Healthy Glow Powder (£35.50) – I have a special relationship with Guerlain, this brand was my first ever high end beauty purchase way back when (around 2005 I think) it was a Divinora Eyeshadow palette, it was beautiful, and I fell in love with the brand instantly.

Guerlain’s Terracotta Joli Teint Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duo is the perfect compact to give your complexion a healthy glow this winter. It comprises of a softened sun-kissed powder, lighter than the legendary Terracotta bronzing powder. Its pigments are less intense and works with the skin to make it glow without overloading it. And there’s also a coloured shade that blends with the sun-kissed powder to deliver a beautiful burst of radiance to the skin.

alaia-fragrance

ALAIA Alaïa Paris Eau De Parfum 50ml (£62.00) – The first fragrance from Alaïa, Alaïa Paris EDP is a stunning evening fragrance. Azzedine Alaia wanted to create a fragrance akin to ‘the smell of cold water falling on hot chalk’, and funnily enough I do actually pick that up from this fragrance. There’s a distinct freshness, with aquatic mineral notes, but there’s also the warming depth of musk, making this a rather unusual yet beautiful scent. Alaia Paris EDP has fresh and airy top notes of pink pepper, floral heart notes of freesia and peony, and animal base notes of musk.

luxury-stocking-fillers

Diptyque Liquidabmbar Scented Candle (From £28.00) – Diptyque has introduced three new limited edition candles to light up the holiday season, and this years’ limited edition trio is dedicated to the olfactory attributes of trees.

Liquidambar is in fact a North American tree, and it’s name originates from the aromatic resin that seeps from the tree. The Liquidambar scented candle smells deliciously warm and intense. It embraces the redness of this large autumnal tree, with enveloping liquid amber, spiced nutmeg and cinnamon sand, cloaked in the scent of brown sugar, providing a sweet and warm veil of gourmand accents. I’ll be featuring this candle more closely in an upcoming post too!

Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Perk Me Up Lip And Cheek Kit (£25.50) – I love Benefit’s makeup sets, they look amazing and make perfect Christmas gifts! The pocket size Feelin Dandy lip and cheek set includes an iconic tint, award-winning cheek color, luscious lip gloss and beautiful highlighter so you can add a pop of colour to your look this season. The set includes:

  • Posietint – Poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain
  • High Beam – luminescent complexion enhancer
  • Dandelion – brightening face powder
  • Ultra Plush Dandelion Lip Gloss

urban-decay-eyeshadows-and-nars-brush

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow (£14.00) – These eyeshadows are just so gorgeous, you couldn’t actually ask for more sparkle! I have shades Ether (top) and Scorpio (bottom). Ether is a stunning lavender shade packed full of lavender and teal micro glitter particles, and Ether is an intense deep khaki green shade, with golden / green glitter sparkles. These can be used wet or dry, and there are 11 high shimmer shades to choose from in the collection.

NARS #23 Wet / Dry Blush Brush (£31.00) – NARS makeup brushes really are where it’s at, and this beautiful #23 Wet / Dry Blush brush would make a fantastic addition to any makeup lovers collection. Designed for versatility, featuring a compact, domed nylon brush head for perfectly applying and blending product either wet or dry. This brush is beautifully weighted, so it feel fantastic to hold, and just oozes quality.

clinique-chubby-sticks

Clinique Chubby, Chubbier, Chubbiest Collection (£17.00) – This sweet little gift box contains three of Clinique’s top selling products – the Chubby Stick! Perfect for those that want to try Chubby Sticks for the first time but aren’t sure which to go for, this set contains formulas from sheer to intense, filled with good-for-skin ingredients and no fragrance at all. The set contains –

  • Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry 1.2g
  • Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mightiest Maraschino 1.2g
  • Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colour Balm in Budding Blossom 1.2g

Guerlain Summer Sun Celebration Collection 2014

Posted on April 24, 2014

Hi Guys!

When I saw the press release for Guerlain’s Summer Sun Celebration collection I just had to share it with you! Guerlain has been a favourite brand of mine for a long time, ever since I treated myself to an eye shadow quad when I was about 18, I’ve since loved the luxury brand and it’s gorgeous packaging.

The Summer Sun Celebration Collection is a collection of limited edition products to celebrate 30 years of Terracotta – did you know that a Terracotta bronzing powder is sold on average every 20 seconds – wow!

A healthy glow all year round, sun on demand, three weeks’ tanning in just three seconds, truer-than-nature golden colour at a stroke, beautiful, sun-kissed skin day after day… For 30 years, Terracotta has illuminated women’s lives by leading the way to the promised land of radiance.

In 2014, the Terracotta legend lives on. Guerlain is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a truly dazzling bronzing powder, Terracotta Sun Celebration, and – for the very first time, as a limited edition – Terracotta Le Parfum, a captivating, sun-drenched fragrance. The perfect partners for this sun-blessed duo? Cils d’Enfer mascara in a new waterproof variant, enabling women to – literally – dive into summer while still looking immaculate, plus the season’s three It-colours, which look stunning on tanned skin.

The star of the collection, Terracotta Sun Celebration powder is available in a single, universal harmony that will illuminate all skin tones. A bronzing powder and blush rolled into one, this multi-tasking compact creates a sublime sun-kissed glow at a stroke. The soft, lightweight formula of this virtuoso illusion artist replicates a natural healthy glow and brings a fresh flush of colour to cheeks.

Flaming orange, burnished brown, sensual golden shimmer and sunset pink… Terracotta Sun Celebration is a mesmerizing alchemy of sun-drenched shades, capturing all the intensities of the largest star to illuminate women’s skin with a dazzling aura. The combination of a universal bronzing powder, inspired by best-selling Terracotta shade 03, with shades of pink and orange brings freshness and radiance to the complexion.

Terracotta Le Parfum – The Allure of the Sun, in a Bottle

As a 30th anniversary tribute to Terracotta, and for the very first time, Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance. An irresistibly sensual composition, exotic and luminous, inspired by the radiant realm of Terracotta.

The fragrance’s intricate harmony opens on captivatingly fresh notes of bergamot, before developing into a heart of tiaré flower and ylang – ylang. One of Guerlain’s emblematic ingredients, ylang – ylang infuses scents with its warmth. Its sweet, sensual signature finally reveals a delicious vanilla-tinged dry-down. Leaving now for an exotic paradise… and the promise of voluptuous sensations.

How amazing does this collection sound!? I can wait to get my hands on some of these products!!  (Available from House of Fraser from 02/05/14) xxx
