While Chanel is all about the pink and silver shades, Guerlain‘s main colours for Christmas are rich navy and gold, which is a beautiful combination. This collection is inspired by India, and the rich colours from the Indian culture. Let’s take a look at the products.
Guerlain Souffle d’Or de Shalimar ($98) Perfumed Iridescent Powder for Hair & Body. Fine shimmery gold powder for body and hair, subtly perfumed with Shalimar Souffle de Parfum notes (Vanilla, Bergamot and Orange Blossom).
Terracotta Terra India Shimmering Bronzing Powder ($55)
Météorites Perles De Légende ($65) Light-Revealing Pearls Of Powder, 3 shades inspired by Indian pigments: pink to refresh, gold to illuminate, and a touch of blue to softly correct the complexion. A blue and gold design reflecting the colours of Indian jewel cases.
L’Or Felt Eyeliner, Sparkling Gold ($34), gold
Guerlain Spring 2016, anyone? New meteorites, blush and eye shadows with positive message and spring-like shades and new colours of lipsticks and eye pencils.

You can always count on Guerlain when it comes to luxury limited edition seasonal releases. Their Christmas 2015, Winter Fairy Tale, collection is not an exception.
Of course, there is a new version of the collectable Météorites Perle des Neiges ($80), which come in a beautiful festive packaging. There are even star shaped mateories! Beige to even out the skin tone, champagne to illuminate and golden for a subtle sun-kissed effect.
The other star product, in my opinion is the Ors et Merveilles Eyes and Blush Palette ($90) which contains wearable shades for the eyes and blushes to brighten up the complexion.
Spring 2015 makeup collection from Guerlain, Les Tendres, is all about the glowing fresh complexion and tender pink tones, very girly, delicate and feminine. Exactly what we need after long winter months and sparkly/red makeup…

ÉCRIN 4 COULEURS Long-Lasting Eyeshadows, Captivating Colours (£41/ €55/$65)
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.
Météorites Perles d’Etoile, £37.50 / €49
This year’s Guerlain meteorites feature the famous bow inspired by Coque d’Or and come in a golden packaging with six shades of pearls inside for a luminous glow.
