Guerlain Spring Colour Collection 2012 - Les Roses et le Noir

Pretty in pink for spring is what you'll get from the Guerlain spring collection and you know how much I love pink!
Météorites Cruel Gardénia - $76 - iridescent illuminating powder that can be used all over for radiance or strategically as a highlighter - and let me just put this out there - ooooooooooooo purty!
Mascara Noir G de Guerlain - $50 (refill $28) - that's right my friends, the new mascara from Guerlain is refillable which totally takes away the guilt factor of having to throw away the absolutely beautiful packaging when it's empty - you don't, you just pop in a new (very affordable) refill. The mascara adds volume and definition but what's really interesting about it is the colour innovation: vitrified black carbon pigments, more black and more brilliant, coated in a glass ball. The magnifying glass effect multiplies the intensity and the depth of the black! It also has a long-lasting polymer film sets the formula on the lashes, without the slightest smudge or risk of the formula flaking.
Ecrin 6 Couleurs - Tailored Harmonies - $91 - a harmony of flesh pink, pearl mauve, tea rose and tender violet
Ecrin 4 Couleurs - Les Aquas - $64

Ecrin 4 Couleurs - Les Roses - $64
Rouge G - Rose Collection - $51 - in four limited edition shades: 75 Rose Barbare - incandescent fuchsia; 74 Rose Piquant - radiant pink; 73 Rose Ensoleillé - with sensual accents; and 72 Rose Innocent - pure and iridescent pink
KissKiss Gloss - $35 - in four new regular colours: 869 Rose In Bloom - pure pink; 870 Cherry Pink - gourmand pastel; 871 Frosted Pink - off-white with delicate and subtle pink mother of pearl particles; 872 Flush Pink - intense fuchsia.

  1. Aaw, lovely! As usual, I will buy everything. Can't wait for January!

  2. Love the highlighter! The mascara is intriguing - do you replace the wand and the mascara? Also love the coral lipgloss (in the middle of the last pic)

  3. From the diagram I've seen it appears that both the wand and mascara are replaced but I'm not 100% sure on that. It would make sense, brushes don't last forever!

    Best, Lisamarie

  4. I was asking the SA at shoppers about the Ecrin 4 couleurs and he mentioned that sometimes they shatter. Has that ever happened to anyone else? The colours are so gorgoeus I'm finding it hard to resist!

  5. That wouldn't surprise me if they didn't have the little plastic divider between all the colours but since they do that seems odd for such a high end palette! I have never had that happen to me but I'd be interested to know if anyone else has!

    Best, Lisamarie

  6. I just saw a glimpse of makeup heaven. :)
