Liquid -GUERLAIN -Lingerie De Peau Aqua Nude Foundation

foto

This foundation will be excellent for oily skin. I have very dry cheek so I'm not reaching for this often.
But the foundation itself is lovely,
the color is fantastic, the texture is easy to blend, dry to a matte finish , your skin will look like you have a gorgeous veil,
it's very pretty.
I do recommend this to oily skin or normal skin.
and it have Guerlain significant smell. I dont mind with fragrance.
I'm in 00N Porcelain .
( my color in Bobbi Brown serum foundation is 00Porcelain, my fav foundation),in Mac , I'm around NW 010-015.

Liquid -GUERLAIN -Lingerie De Peau Natural Perfection Foundation SPF 20

This is very bad for the skin because of the strong perfume. The perfume smell does not go away, it keeps smelling strong the whole day. Also, it oxidizes. I'd did look good at first and then started turning orange. I returned mine and lost interest in this brand. If they want to charge so much, it better be safe with good color range that won't make you look like oompa loompa.

Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Kiss Kiss Excessive Rose #361

on 9/16/2018 3:51:00 PM

foto

Once again, I selected my last two shades of lipstick for the coming cooler months. Excessive Rose is a darker shade than #73, but it still has the blue tints and perhaps even a hint of purple. I wanted it to match my dress I made for the Holidays and it matches perfectly. My dress is not actually red but rather a dark rose, and so is this lipstick. As with all my Guerlain lipsticks, this is very creamy, smells divine, and leaves a stain on the lips for a very long time. The case on this lipstick is black with a gold top. The case is not all that but it is what is inside that matters the most. Got to love Guerlain!

Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Rouge #73

on 9/16/2018 3:41:00 PM

The name of this lipstick is actually , Rouge G de Guerlain Customizable Lipstick. I do love this lipstick. The color is just my style for the coming cooler months. It is a darker pink with lot's of blue and purple tints. It is so creamy and smells lightly as most of the Guerlain lipsticks do. I do so love the fragrance of a beautiful Guerlain lipstick. This particular lipstick does not come with a case. If the lipstick were not so divine, I might take one lippie away for this very reason, but I ordered a cover and I still love this lipstick. The case I ordered is called Parure Gold. It is very classy. The lipstick and the case are rather heavy together but it is an easy find in my purse when I do not want to carry a makeup bag. Now I want to add another shade from this lineup!


Moisturizers -GUERLAIN -Meteorites Oxygen Care Moisturizer and Radiance Booster

on 9/15/2018 11:49:00 PM

I have super sensitive skin, this has given me no issues (so far- 1 week). The scent can be a little much, but its familiar since I own the Meteorites primer, but it may bother some.

I love Guerlain's meteorites primer, its my #1 primer. However, this Oxygen care is different. Some have reviewed it like a primer on other sites, its too thick, in my opinion. So when I first tried it, I was scared it would be just like the primer I already have. Its not. Its much thicker, like a lotion, and it needs to warm a bit on your skin to spread. Guerlain's primers are much runnier. This is awesome for a light moisturizer. Once it sits on your skin, it has a super soft finish. My skin feels amazing. After wearing it awhile, my skin looks soft and glowy. It actually makes me not care to wear foundation!!

I will say that for a moisturizer, its not as "healing" or "absorbing" as your typical moisturizing face lotion. I feel this is more for enjoying while you wear it, but when I wash my face, I feel like my skin hasnt absorbed much moisture (like when you wash off foundation that has jojoba oil or shea butter in it, for example, where you can feel the softening effects on your clean skin). This feels like a very superficial moisturizer, and the feel and effects last only as long as you have it on your skin (so very topical). I will have to see if using it over time will change that opinion. But it feels lovely and looks lovely on. No breakouts either, which for my skin + moisturizer usually makes me greasy or break out, which is why I wanted to try this.

ETA: few days later, I tried a sample of Bobbi Brown's Vit Enriched Face Base-- I actually prefer Face Base over Guerlain Oxygen just because of how "healing" Face Base feels, like a true moisturizer (shea butter), as well as a fresher scent (citrus) that doesnt linger, and price point. Still glad I have the Oxygen Care, but if youre looking for a true moisturizer, Face Base is great.


Primer/ Corrector -GUERLAIN -L'OR Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold

As a woman with combination to oily skin this product is amazing. That being said, the ridiculous price of this does not seem to tempt me to purchase this again. I do know there are some possible dupes or close to it BUT this is amazing without a doubt. I gives you a glow from within in a way no other product has.

The unfortunate issue with this amazing product is that for a primer to be almost $100.00; it isn't realistic for a working person to justify this cost. I could buy a great alternative primer and a foundation as well as maybe a couple more things for the same price.

If you have the money to spare; then YES! For all of us mere mortals it just does not make financial sense for the amount of product you get!

Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Rouge Automatique - 123 Habit Rouge

on 9/9/2018 11:44:00 PM

I've gone through a few high end lipsticks in my time and never felt the need to repurchase any of them. Then I finished this one and realized that it left a square, one-handed lipstick tube shaped hole in my heart. Habit Rouge was a perfect vampy-but-still-muted orangey-brown red in an amazing formula, and using it always felt so luxurious and special. So I girded my loins and prepared to drop another $40... and found that naturally, Guerlain discontinued it years ago. Great. Between this and Revlon discontinuing Really Red, I am really hurting for vampy reds that work with my coloring.

Guerlain, please bring these back! They were way better than your current lipsticks, and yes, I am including the highly overrated Rouge G's in that assessment. Literally the only thing that wasn't perfect about the Rouge Automatiques was the white floral perfume. What I wouldn't give for a backup!


Primer/ Corrector -GUERLAIN -L'OR Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold

on 8/22/2018 11:41:00 AM

My biggest disappointment of all time.I rarely say this about a product as most things happen to work for me, but this one was a complete letdown.

Let me share the positive first:

It leaves a tacky texture on the skin so foundation goes on and adheres to skin a little better.
The pump is sealed shut so there's no way the gel will evaporate slowly. The packaging is solid, I'll give it that.
The bottle is very pretty to look at.

The good ends here. Now's the negative:

It makes no difference in the finish of foundation. In my experience, it also did not make any difference in longevity on oily areas of my face.

The ingredients list soooo crappy I don't even know where to begin. Before I bought this primer I was thinking to myself "If this doesn't work out, I'll just use it as a night treatment. It's so pricey and it's Guerlain so it should have some skincare benefits, right?" WRONG. First three items on the list are water, glycerin and alcohol. You read it right, ALCOHOL. The rest of the list isn't impressive either: gold is listed somewhere in the middle and there's rose extract further down the list; the rest are fillers, polymers and preservatives.

This brings us to the next problem: polymers. The booklet that comes in the box talks about high-tech polymers creating a "mesh" on the face... Polymers are the active ingredient in most hair styling products out there; it is also what gives that tacky texture on the skin. Although it's been around for a long time, this is one of the selling points of this product. By applying this product we're simply rubbing expensive hair gel all over our faces...

The gel has a very strong scent. If you don't like fragrance in products you will hate this.

I did not get that "firming" effect youtubers are talking about. Maybe what they felt was alcohol drying and tightening their skin?

Do I need to talk about the price? :(

Overall, this is a complete FAIL for me. If you have money to spend on high-priced items, go for a good quality moisturizer with lots of beneficial ingredients in it; like peptides, hyaluronic acid, sunscreen etc.

Fragrances -GUERLAIN -Eau de Shalimar

on 8/18/2018 8:52:00 PM

foto

I went in search of Shalimar Initial and found it was discontinued . With that in mind I began searching flankers and though I did not find many reviews on Eau De Shalimar , I found a great buy on it and bought it blindly . I find it to be soft and slightly sweet and quite beautiful . I think it could be worn safely in any crowd, and for most occasions. It is warm yet sophisticated and not juvenile at all. This fragrance lasts well for me and I love the fact that it has most of Shalimar’s essence or DNA, but is understated .

I find this fragrance to be very feminine, classy and inviting . It is not wimpy or weak , nor is it an in your face fragrance . It is a Guerlain that is worthy of the name , and I will buy a second bottle as a back up.

This Eau De Shalimar ( EDP) would make a safe buy for most females of any age . It smells very expensive and well done, and my bottle ( looks slightly different with the blue cap) is beautiful . I will wear this often !

Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Rouge G L'Extrait - M27 Luxure

on 8/18/2018 5:37:00 PM

I was lucky enough to score an invite to a friends and family warehouse sales over here at the Montreal headquarters, which is how I came to be in possession of any Guerlain product! ;) The luxury price point is a bit steep for me but everything was more or less half off at the sale so I scored some great items. This lipstick however, while not terrible, was not one of them. The formula is creamy and nourishing but seems to have very little staying power on the lip. The pigmentation is just okay, nothing over-the-top but not terrible either. Then there’s the packaging. I appreciate that the shiny casing and attached mirror add some sparkle to the product which makes the whole thing look and feel luxurious. But the mirror makes it a bit tricky to close and the product as a whole is too heavy.  All in all, it was a nice idea but I won't spring for another one! :/


Lip Treatments -GUERLAIN -Kisskiss Roselip

on 8/17/2018 2:21:00 PM

I have two of these in colours 'pink me up' and 'wonder violette'. Overall, if not for the price(it is Guerlain after all) I'm very impressed.

It's sheer but gives a great wash of colour, it even plumps my lips up. And having used both the Dior Lip Glow and Dior Lip Maximizer, I am far more impressed with this. :)

Fragrances -GUERLAIN -Mon Precieux Nectar [DISCONTINUED]

on 8/11/2018 3:01:00 PM

Sadly, I'm not a fan. I expected an ethereal white floral laced with almond which I normally love but this is WAY too sweet, dare I say artificial smelling. I get a mix of sugared blossoms and plastic doll, the overall impression is very juvenile and I don't get any of the usual Guerlain quality. Call me disappointed.

Highlighters -GUERLAIN -Meteorites Compact in Clair/Light

on 8/11/2018 1:28:00 PM

I have this powder in medium and nothing else looks quite as good as it for all over brightening. I have tried other brands and they just don't have a comparable effect as they are either too shiny or not glowy enough. I use it both with the Guerlain BB cream and just over another brand of mineral powder foundation as a setting powder and it looks equally good. I have not had any issues with caking or separating even though I have oily skin nor does it cause any breakouts for me. Unfortunately, at $62 USD the big downside as with all Guerlain products is the price. Eventually I will probably buy the Voyage refillable compact as this is a standard item for me and it seems a shame to throw away the case every time.

Bronzers -GUERLAIN -Terracotta Bronzing Powder

foto

I can’t believe I have never tried this before until now, but then again I never bought a bronzer until last year. I didn’t know they came in shades and there are options for fair skinned people. This bronzer is available in 10 shades, the biggest shade range offered. Kudos to Guerlain!
I played it safe by getting shade 00 clair blondes, which has a slight pink undertone. I believe Guerlain is assuming blondes are cool toned and brunettes are warm because the brunette shades are yellow, good to know if you don’t want any pink. And I mean pink, not orange, like there’s a touch of blusher built in. My skin looks slightly pink when I’ve been in the sun, so it makes sense.
I do the recommended Guerlain “3” placement technique and I absolutely love the slightly bronzed glow it gives me, it looks very natural and impossible to tell I have it on. It has the ever so slightest touch of shimmer in it, I have to hold the compact up in the light and move it around to see it and it definitely doesn’t show on the skin. Definitely not drying as well, my skin is dry so I appreciate this.
After all, Guerlain wants us to look like we spend time at some exotic or otherwise chic foreign location where you would be an idiot to be inside away from the sun. And feel like it too, after we pay, this is the most I’ve spent ever for a single pan of product. Sure, there might be other bronzers out there just as good and cheaper, but the tortoise shell colored compact is glamorously petite for its contents, no oversized or excessive packaging here, yet the pan is large enough to accommodate a large fluffy brush with ease. It is fragranced, so sensitive skins may want to pass or use with caution. I personally think it smells luxuriously delicious and perhaps my olfactory transport to the above mentioned location is due to a carefully and well curated fragrance.
I am absolutely in love with this and already have a second in my stash before I even barely broke the surface on the first.

BB Cream -GUERLAIN -Lingerie de Peau BB Invisible Skin-Fusion Multi-Perfecting Make-Up SPF 30

foto

Not my favourite foundation out there, although I've tried to like it, still disappoints.

Positives:
- Medium coverage, it has a good consistency for concealing pigmentation and flaws on the skin
- Tube is pricey, but a little goes a long way, it's thick-ish and quite pigmented
- Goes on nice and light, my face never looks too overdone

Negatives:
- Oily. I have dry skin and this foundation after a couple hours makes me look shiny in a bad way
- Does not last all day. After half a day, especially if its warm hot, the texture starts to float on the top layer creating streaks. I've used other foundations and this is the first time it has happened to me. I try to clean it up, but I end up washing my face and redoing my makeup.
- SPF? I purchased my product in Canada and the SPF section was taped over. I think we might have different requirement than the states and there's a possibility that it's not considered SPF approved.I would use caution especially if you're going to be in direct sunlight.

Overall, for me (personally, it's a bit more trouble than what it's worth and I would not be repurchasing it.
