Supermodel and face of Guerlain, Natalia Vodianova collaborated with Guerlain’s Creative Director of Makeup, Olivier Echaudemaison to create the holiday collection this year. The pair was inspired by the legend of Shalimar fragrance and India. You will see they used gold and sapphire frequently in their collection. A portion of the proceeds will go to Natalia’s Naked Heart Foundation, to benefit children with disabilities.
I have to admit, of all the holiday collections, Guerlain holds a place in my heart. I’m always excited to see what they come up with each year. Last years’ collection was less shimmery, and more wearable for everyday. This holiday season, Guerlain has gone glamorous and shimmery. Some items are super wearable, some will be for an elegant night out. ALL will be treasured additions to my little Guerlain Holiday collection.
Météorites Perles de Légende are inspired by the pigments of India, and contain pink to refresh skin, gold to illuminate, and blue to softly color correct. Guerlain’s iconic holiday balls are housed in a royal blue and gold tin this year. I find the holiday Météorites to be the ultimate addition for a beauty collector each year.
If you’re looking for a gift that is a unique take on fragrance, the Souffle d’Or de Shalimar Perfumed Iridescent Powder is a lovely idea. The elegant sapphire and gold atomizer contains a fine gold shimmery scented powder for body and hair.
The Rouge G Exceptional Complete Lip Color is by far the most luxurious lipstick in my collection. The gold and sapphire case opens to reveal a mirror (so handy!) and a classic red Bindi inspired shade. The luxe satin formula contains hyaluronic acid and mango butter for ultra smooth lips.
The Ecrin Shalimar Eyeshadow duo is an elegant and wearable compact with gold and metallic blue shimmery shades inspired by gold and sapphire Indian jewels.
This holiday, Guerlain has a shimmery Terracotta Terra India Bronzer to add to the iconic collection. The blue lacquer case contains a golden illuminating bronzer embossed with a pattern inspired by Indian drawings.
The Guerlain L’Or Eyeliner Gold Felt Tip liner is a fun and playful addition to the sophisticated Holiday Collection. This adds serious sparkle to any holiday look this season.
The pink pearly tone of the Precious Light Illuminator pen highlights all skin tones with a subtle shift.
What do you think about this years Guerlain Holiday collection? Will you be picking anything up?
