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

on 11/21/2017 11:19:00 AM

All the beauty gurus on youtube who have been raving about this primer are full of crap. A friend of mine, who is over 50, was raving about this primer and how it tightens the skin and makes foundation go on more smooth. While it worked great for her, it did nothing for my 40 year old face. I didn't feel any tightening or brightening or anything. I've been using it daily for the past two weeks and there is no difference in the way my foundation lays either. I'll continue to use it just because it's expensive and I want to finish the bottle. The texture of the primer is very liquid and there is a strong perfume aroma to it. I will give it credit that it didn't ball up on me like some primers do. I hate it when you apply all your lotion and toners and serums and then your primer reacts with everything and forms little balls all over your face. Your skin ends up looking like you were sunburned and it's peeling off. This primer didn't do that and worked well with all my skincare items. I just can't justify spending $75 for that. I bought it during the Sephora 20% off sale but it's not worth it. Save your money.

Highlighters -Guerlain -Les Meteorites balls powder

I LOVE THIS! Beautiful finishing powder. Blurs and gives a nice GLOW!

This is not a setting powder but because I have dry skin and get a cake face when I using setting powders I use this instead. It kind of does set too.

I have the Meteorites Balls in the color Clair but have now bought the compact in Medium.

I recommend it to all of you. It may be expensive but it goes a long way!

Fragrances -Guerlain -L'Heure Bleue

Probably not a repurchase. Actually, it was a christmas gift, so not even a purchase. I have tried L'Heure Bleue many times over the years in both edt and edp.

This review is for the eau de parfum. The eau de toilette has absolutely no staying power on my perfume eating skin. I adore so many of the notes in this fragrance, and the drydown is heaven. My main problem is getting to the drydown.

On first application, all I can smell is almond marzipan or play doh. This phase lasts for nearly half an hour. Eventually it morphs into a lovely powdery spicy purple mix of purple flowers tinged with benzoin and vanilla. It disappears and reappears throughout the day. Even in eau de parfum, I wish it was stronger or had more presence, but on me it doesn't. Some people may love the idea of a fragrance that disappears and reappears but it actually annoys me a little. I want to be able to smell my fragrance all day.

Works best on me in very hot weather, almost disappears in cold weather. I have had neither compliments nor complaints about this fragrance.

Makeup Brushes -Guerlain -Meteorites Brush

This brush sheds like crazy! I hated it for that! It’s not the softest brush either. HOWEVER it is the best brush to apply meteorites. I have tried different brushes but the result is not the same. So as much as I’d like to give this a 1 star, it does have a positive point.

Treatments (Face) -Guerlain -Super Aqua-Serum

This serum wasn't for me at all. Looks like a very thin fragranced white lotion and sinks right in but my sensitive combination skin became increasingly more red and irritated while using it.


Liquid -Guerlain -Parure Gold

This is such a nice foundation. It perfectly covers my redish winterskin, does not turn flakey, and looks/feels like a second skin. I found the perfect color in the range, which is not always that easy for me. I am so happy with this purchase!


Fragrances -Guerlain -Mon Guerlain

This fragrance, which is based on lavender and jasmine, is objectively lovely. It's just not for me. It has a powerful vanilla base that would appeal to so many, just not to me. (Sweet vanillas and I are no longer on speaking terms.) The result is powerfully sweet and strong. There is no animal, leather, green, or dry note to allay the sweetness. You would think the lavender would do this, but it barely makes a dent. If you love vanilla, dig right in. You will love this. It lasts a good while and has considerable sillage. For most, this would be an evening or special event fragrance. I would classify this as an oriental. This reminds me a bit of Narciso Rodriguez for Her.

Fragrances -Guerlain -Habit Rouge

For the record I am reviewing the eau de parfum concentration. This product is more commonly sold in eau de toilette and eau de cologne concentrations, and so many of the reviews will refer to those.

Habit Rouge is often described as Shalimar for Men. I have to agree. In many way's it's even sexier. There's more leather, less vanilla and it's all round drier and not too sweet. This is a fragrance that smells good with a suit or a leather jacket and tshirt. Shalimar can be a bit too much for daytime wear but Habit Rouge is just right. This how I hoped Jicky would smell on me - dry, sweet, leathery, unisex and sexy in a cool understated sort of way.

Starts off with a blast of citrus, dries down to an oriental base plus leather. Never completely loses the citrus blast. Sillage is low to moderate, longevity is 6 hours or more on skin, on clothing until it's washed.

I got a sample at Sephora with 100 points and I'm so glad I did! I've never tried a Guerlain perfume before so I can't compare (which is probably a good thing). I used to love Flowerbomb and La vie est belle however as I got older, those scents got too overpowering for me. This one has "similar" warm scent but much less complex and doesn't give me a headache. I would put Chanel Mademoiselle closer to the other two. I would not call this a dupe for either Flowerbomb or La vie est belle, I think it's a pretty unique scent. Perfect warm perfum for winter :)

Fragrances -Guerlain -Vol de Nuit

One of the most amazing fragrances around. And I mean it...
I own "L'heure bleue" and "Jardins de bagatelle" but "Vol de nuit" is by far my favorite. Very sensual and sophisticated without being too strong and chemical. Very understated yet elegant. But you have to OWN it. This is not a perfume for beginners ;)

There are two versions of this ..the eau de perfume and the eau de toilette ....I own the perfum ...but ......I wanted the eau de toilette as this is the one I had tried in department store and became obsessed by it ....I have the perfum version but alas I am not "feeling " it ..just a little bit too strong for me and I don't tend to spray lots ...so ...I am surfing the net for the toilette version and want a bargain with my birthday money ...I love love love it ....I will give 4 stars only because I love the lighter version the best ...others may prefer the heavier ...xx. It's just got a dreamy vanilla not sickly or cloying but amazing ...along with Alien absolue this is in my top 5 ... totally ...could be my second fave or equal lol ......

Mascara -Guerlain -Guerlain Cils d'Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara

Love the colour selection, applies lovely . Unfortunatly it doesnt give me the dramatic lashes i want.
The navy colour shows up well for me without being obvious.
All in all id repurchase its a good daily mascara that stays put and is easy to remove.


Mascara -Guerlain -LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE MASCARA

on 10/18/2017 11:04:00 AM

This mascara works well for me - it basically does everything a mascara should do; it is lengthening, separating, volumizing and curling (the curling effect is spectacular - no need for a lash curler with this mascara). It does not clump or smudge. It stays in place all day.

I consider this as a potential replacement for Lancome volume a porter. It gives me very similar results. (= 'my natural lashes but much better' effect)

Will I repurchase? Not sure. Considering that my Lancome favorite is slightly cheaper and gives me the same look, I think I will stick to Lancome.

But it is a nice mascara for sure.

An absolute perfection. Unfortunately the modern regulations or brands obsessive money making mass production have changed the quality. Have some bottles from 80's and those are the real thing.
