I have been on a mission “Spring Cleaning” lately.
It’s an amazing feeling when you get rid of the things that you don’t wear anymore. The main thing is to be very strict with yourself – if you haven’t worn a particular item for months, or even years, most likely you won’t wear it any time soon. So don’t even start the “what if”…
Guerlain Eau De Lingerie, new, LE, £60 for 125 ml. This is a lingerie spray withaphrodisiac properties with the notes of: iris, rose, white musk, vanilla, sandalwood and ambrette.
Plus when you give away of the things you don’t wear you feel motivated (and can justify) for the new purchases. I have been doing that, as well! And it it very refreshing. In fact, I have bought two new dresses (see one here) this month already. Although I don’t really wear dresses that often, but I felt like it was time for a change.

But why am I even telling you that all?
Because it’s an introduction to today’s post – scented products for your closet. This mayRead More
It’s that time of the year when brands start bringing out their pre-summer collections that you can take with you on a mini break or a proper holiday. And, oh my goodness, I really need on of those and have my fingers crossed for one around May time…
So let’s take a look at the gorgeous Guerlain Terracotta collection for this summer, 2013.
TERRACOTTA 4 SEASONS Tailor-made Bronzing Powder £46.50 / €62
This is a cult product already and doesn’t even need an introduction, this year Guerlain added several new shades to the range:
00 NUDE For pale complexions. Comes with a fresh pink blush to illuminate the complexion, 02 NATURAL BLONDES, 03 NATURAL BRUNETTES, 08 EBONY For dark complexions. Comes with a red blush.
Other shades are: 04 MEDIUM BLONDES and 05 MEDIUM BRUNETTES.
00 Nude sounds amazing!
Olivier Échaudemaison application tips:
“Apply your Terracotta powder by tracing a figure “3” on each side of the face: from the forehead down towards the cheeks, then down along the jaw line to the chin and down the neck.
For the finishing touch, take a little more Terracotta powder with your brush and sweep it over the raised areas of the face, the places that catch the sun most – the forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin. The result is an instant glow.’
TERRACOTTA SKIN Glow-enhancing perfector £34/€46
This gives you a corrective coverage of a foundation and the sheer transparency of a Terracotta powder, this powdery cream creates perfect make-up results while unifying your complexion and giving it a subtle, healthy glow.
Available in Nude, Blondes andRead More

If you re still unsure about the makeup look you want to wear – you may like this one from Guerlain.
For Spring 2013 Guerlain offers a brand new mascara, new limited edition of meteories, two eye shadow palettes, eye liner and six lip products.
Although I am not the biggest fan of pink colour (I adore pink lip products though), I really love all the promo photos with the pink background, very stylish and fresh.
Here is a promo with Natalia Vodianova and I am loving the lip colour she is wearing.
Here are all the details you need to know about the new mascara:
Cils d’Enfer – Maxi Lash (£22 / €31)
Volume Creating – Curl Sculpting Mascara in 01 Noir 02 Violet
Brand new volumising mascara from the brand comes which in a compact size which should make it easy to take it with you.
The secret of this brush is all in the three polymers. “The first one wraps the lashes in extremely adherent oils, coating and thickening the lashes. The second one, made with supple waxes, acts like a conditioner, softening the lashes so you can sculpt them into just the right shape and style. The last one forms a thin film, coating the lashes to trap the wax and set the amazing curve.”
This mascara also has an innovative brush which is described the following way:” full, round brush caresses each lash to thicken and lengthen at will. The volumising effect is accentuated by the new generation hollow fibres, capable of dispensing just the right amount of mascara with each stroke. Cleverly placed in a criss-cross pattern, they carefully separate the lashes and spread the rich formula without clumping.”
