Hi all! This one is mainly for the ladies. But it should be a good read for the gents too if you are looking to surprise your other half with some nice beauty products. So I went for some makeup shopping and all the ladies out there probably have been in the same situation when you go out for makeup shopping; you feel like trying and buying everything. 😛 This time I tried some products from a brand which I have heard a lot about but hadn’t tried before. It is Guerlain, a French perfumes, skincare and cosmetic brand which is among the oldest in the world (as per Wikipedia). So here are some Guerlain makeup products which I am sure you will all like. 🙂
Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder (Sun Blondes 04)
Before buying a bronzer the two things which should be kept in mind are, whether you are going to use it for contouring or to get a sun kissed look! If you are looking for contouring always go for one shade darker than your skin tone. However, as I was searching for a good sun kissed look this one from Guerlain was the best for me. This is a 5 shade mosaic bronzing powder consisting of pinks and tans. This bronzer is a bit different from the standard brown bronzers. If you apply this then you don’t have to think about using any blusher as this gives a very nice rosy sheen to your skin.The packaging is classy, it has a mirror inside but does not come with an applicator. The texture is fine and blends very easily which has been the primary criteria in my hunt for a good bronzer. It does not create any patchiness on application and gives a very smooth look on the skin.The powder is extremely pigmented and the plus point is, it stays longer.
Tips for bronzers: If you are looking for a neutral or brown contouring type bronzer then I would say look out for something like Benefits Hoola. If you are looking for a bronzer which serves both as a bronzer as well as a blusher then I am sure you will love this one.
Guerlain Rouge Automatique- 165 Champs Elysees
This is a very elegant red or you can even say a raspberry pink which looks amazingly beautiful on application. The formula feels smooth, creamy and very moisturising. This colour can be paired with several makeup looks. I am personally a matte finish lover and usually don’t go for creamy formulations but this one has really conquered my heart with its nice creamy formulation which stays on for long. At the time of buying I thought this is probably not a good buy for me as I don’t like smooth lipsticks then I explained to myself that I should always give it a try. Now I really think I would have missed something beautiful which has changed my mind on cream based lipsticks. When it comes to the packaging I can only say one thing and that is, the classiness justifies the name of the product. There is a square pull which slides down and pulls down the lid like a trapdoor while pushing out the lipstick in one smooth movement. Give it a try, you will love it.
Guerlain Terracotta lip gloss – 06 Ebene
I am not a fan of gloss or creamy formulation, rather I always look out for matte finish. So trying this was an experiment against my affinity towards mattish things. This Ebene shade from their lip gloss range has a very nice consistency and is quite pigmented compared to the other shades I tried from Guerlain. The shade is somewhat ambered bronze. Its like a glossy lip balm and the what I liked most in this gloss is that it is non sticky. I really don’t like the sticky aspect of a lip gloss. The only thing which I did not like was the applicator. I somehow did not feel very comfortable with it, however it might not be the same for you. I liked the packaging and the design of the tip is very stylish.
Hope you will get what you are looking for and if you have never tried Guerlain products I will suggest go and give them a try and I am sure you will love them.
Have a lovely day with your loved ones.
Spread positivity and don’t think about what happens tomorrow, live the moment, live your life to the fullest.
And as always
Stay healthy, Stay fashionable. 🙂
