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.”

Guerlain’s Christmas 2012 makeup collection was inspired by the brand’s fragrance Liu. It is Olivier Echaudemaison’s interpretation of the scent which was created in 1929 by Jacques Guerlain.
Liu is a hymn to femininity and true love,which was inspired by the heroine of Turandot, Puccini’s opera. The story is about the young slave who chooses to commit suicide rather than reveal the name of her master with whom she is in love. The scent symbolized the power of secrets.
