Perhaps the best deo out there. Long lasting and very effective, even on the hottest day. Better than almay or even vichy. The scent does not clash with my perfume. All in all, my staple deo.

Great Limited Edition item. The lipstick texture is ultra smooth, and very moisturizing. The colour is to die for - a deep berry, with a sophisticated pearlized gloss finish. I wouldn't repurchase because its a LE, and I don't wear very dark lipsticks very often, and this should last me a while.
In true Guerlain style - a set of 4 co-ordinating shades of pink/burgundy. Having read the previous reviewer's review, I tend to agree that the two lighter shades a quite glittery. However, if you apply them with a large soft eyeshadow brush, you tend to get a better result that using the sponge applicator that comes with the compact. If you still want to use the sponge applicator, rather dab on the shadow rather than "brush" on. Hope this help. Overall, a good quality product and a staple pink quad.
My HG red lipstick. Ultra glam on my NC35 skin tone. Luscious, opulent - and especially so with the Gitana lipglass (sadly a Limited Ed) over it for that extra oomph!
Holy grail lipgloss! Great colour and wear. Bright enough, yet not over the top. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that the gloss tends to shoot out from the top when you put the applicator back in. But despite this, will still repurchase.
Pale, pale milky pink. Did not show up on my pigmented lips (MAC NC35). Perhaps a bit too cool-toned for my skin tone. Unlike the other glossimars, however, this felt a bit stiff, and did not apply as fluidly. Maybe its just as well that this is a limited ed.

This is one of those products that you know you must have, but don't know why. Having used it, I must say it requires a particular occasion to carry off the look - like the opera or something black tie. Its ultra dramatic, but once the look is pulled together, very striking. I use the white highlighter all over the eye, then put the black over it - and they you can really see the glitter on the whole eye area. The pink lipstick does wash out a bit, but with a darker liner, I managed to pull it off.

Great concept - glitter pearls that actually show up as glitter, but at the same time imparting a luminous glow to the skin. I love the limited ed. products that Guerlain comes out with every year. I would not buy this product again purely because I don't think I'll ever run out of it!

Great modern brown lipstick. Works great with nude eyes and somewhat intense lips. Its the perfect brown on me (MAC NC35) for both summer and winter, and can be dressed up or down.
Great spring time lagoon blue. Works well with an overall golden tan. Its a bit much for office wear, but works great with a pair of jeans over weekends.
Ok - I have to concur with the majority of you - this is the HG of red lipsticks. Texture is great, and the colour is to die for on my MAC NC35 complexion. With a flip back to the '40's, this will be the lipstick to use with understated classic eyes.
Ok - I treated myself to this (Dior's shiniest coffee) and Chanel's aqualumiere in Yucatan. Presumably both houses are trying to create a "gloss-like" lipstick. Bottom line - I prefer the Chanel. This one is not as shiny as I thought it would be, and the colour is nothing unique. Whereas the aqualumiere gives that intense wet-look shine. Both are feather light, but I do perfer the Dior packaging as it has bit more oomph!

This is part of the new revamped blue and gold CD range. Very creamy texture, nice fragrace and decent stay-put factor. Nice lilac toned pink for spring. I would buy other L/s's in this range, but maybe not this colour again cos I don't seem to reach for it very often.
I think that this smells too much like Lancome's Miracle. A bit too light for me - but a nice, if somewhat of a generic fragrace. Its something you reach for when you can't decide what else to wear on a summer's day.
This is definitely a winter fragrace. Warming, comforting, but with a hint of something deeper. It would be too cloying in warmer weather. On me, the vanilla notes a very pronounced, but somehow spiced up. Pity that its a limited edition.
