Guerlain’s Christmas 2014 makeup collection was inspired by the opera and ballet.
Olivier Echaudemaison describes the elegant Guerlain woman in a little black dress, beautiful statement lipstick and a shimmering powder on her décolleté and arms. You can get your inspiration from Natalia on the promo photo, and re-create the look with the help of brand’s new gorgeous products.
Guerlain reproduced Coque d’Or’s original bottle and reinterpreted it in gold-lacquered glass just for this collection. This shimmering golden powder can be used on both body and hair. It is scented with the notes of rose, bergamot and patchouli.
Petrouchka Palette Eye & Blush Palette £56.00 / €77
The palette that, according to the brand is as “dazzling as the gilding of the Bolshoi or the Opéra Garnier.” It contains five eye shadows and four blushes: fresh pink and coral revive the cheekbones; rosewood and brown sculpt them to perfection. See it featured here.

[I have stopped buying them since I never use those anyway, and they just gather dust and I've been trying to de-clutter my place, too. And some palettes are bulky, and do take a lot of space]. Maybe this palette will change the situation.
Now, what about the other items?
