Guerlain Fall 2017 New Releases ft. Look & Review*

Guerlain has always been a brand that was a representation of luxury and elegance. Their brand is all about effortless beauty, making the user feel beautiful while not looking like they are overly made-up and cake-faced. Everytime I use Guerlain cosmetic products, it just makes me look like a way better version of myself (e.g. see picture below). 

Guerlain has released a few new items for fall, and I decided to include the majority of them in a makeup look below ~ the only thing that is not from Guerlain is the lashes, shadow and brows. 

Products used to create the look are listed below complete with my opinion on the items:
(L to R): Blurring Active Base ($52) - This is a lightweight primer that feels almost like a moisturizer when applied - it works to smooth out any pores while mattifying the skin. I loved this product and it's a must buy!

Lingerie de Peau Aqua Nude - 02N Light ($60) - I have been a huge fan of the original Lingerie De Peau foundation, you can read my review of it here. This is the much lighter foundation that offers a natural sheer finish and packs a lot of hydrating properties and acts like skincare. The only con of this product is the dispenser - it is an auto drip formula which can get quite messy at times when trying to put the lid back as it is such a light and liquidy/watery product.

Meteorites Baby Glow Touch - Golden Glow ($48) - The ever so famous Meteorites in powder pearl form, is now a highlighting stick which means you can easily take this on the go with you. Add this to your cheekbones and you have a subtle highlight that makes you look like you have cheekbones of a model. This product delivers more impact than the powder in my opinion. 

In the first horizontal large picture below of me, you can see how natural it looks on my cheeks juxtaposed to the photo on the immediate bottom left, where I don't have the product on and just the Terracotta Sun Trio.

Terracotta Sun Trio - Natural ($63) - This is a bronzer and contour packed in one compact. The powder is finely milled and deposits the right amount of product on your face that delivers a "just got back from a tropical getaway" bronze to your face. It is a true bronze that does not make you look like an oompa loompa. This is probably one of the first products that drew me into the Guerlain brand and wanting to try more products. It is pricey, but a little goes a long way and there has truly been no better bronzer I've tried.

(L to R): Kiss Kiss Lip Lift Primer ($44) - This product is a great lip primer, it fills any fine lines you may have on the lips. It makes your lips look a bit more plump and I am in love with it! If you have difficulties with pulling off any bolder colors because of any textures on your lip, or you are scared of bleeding out of the lines - then you have to try this!

Kiss Kiss Matte - M330 Spicy Burgundy ($44) - This is a true matte lipstick that is pigmented and not drying at all. It also contains oils and hyaluronic acid to provide moisture to the lips throughout the day - a definite must purchase! Take a look at the swatch on the trio pic below on the furthest right, it's gorgeous!

Intense Liquid Matte - M71 Exciting Pink ($40) - This liquid lipstick is a lightly whipped formula packed with hyaluronic acid - a product I've raved about countless of times here on the blog. As a result, your lips will never feel dry and cracked, but hydrated. This lasted on my lips until I had a meal - so a few hours which I don't personally mind. I find long lasting liquid lips to be too drying.

I hope you enjoy the two looks I have created with the products above (and two different lip swatches). Of items I've mentioned, I highly suggest you pick up the Terracotta Trio, the Blurring Active Base Primer, Matte Lipstick and Lip Primer!

Until next time, XO - M.
