Smell of Guerlain Powders - Expired?
So I just used 2 of my Guerlain powders--1 is the Terracotta Light Bronzer and the other is the pressed Meteorites Voyage.  Both have that signature violet scent.  I've had these powders for almost a year and I've used them on very few occasions and always with clean brushes.  When I used them today, I noticed that my brush had a weird sour smell when I ran it across my nose.  I thought maybe it was my brush so I tried another brush with the bronzer and still got that sour smell. Then I thought maybe my foundation was causing that smell so I used another brush, swirled it around my face and there was no scent so I'm pretty sure that sour smell is coming from my Guerlain powders.   My question is, has anyone else noticed that their Guerlain powders smell sour? Have my powders expired or is that normal? There isn't any suggested expiration date on the packaging, and I don't see parabens in the ingredients...just benzyl alcohol so I'm assuming the lack of many preservatives means that it goes bad quickly...which sucks...they were so expensive and honestly performed mediocrely and now they've possibly gone bad.   Update:   According to his article, some people just pick up the violet scent as being I guess it's not bad? Interesting that different people smell things different though. 3238/Love-smell-beer-cheese-Thank-DNA-Scientists-c ...

Do you all remember the infamous Monica Lewinsky lipstick from Club Monaco
Remember the infamous Monica Lewinsky lipstick from Club Monaco that she wore on the 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters? I remember the lipstick was called Glaze and the lip liner Bare. I actually had the lipstick but never got the liner. Do any of you all have a swatch of what the lip liner looked like. I looked on the internet but there are no swatches out there of it. It is described as a yellow brown.  Thank you

Lorca on Hsn
Hsn is having a deal on lorac! 3 matte lip pencils for $24 (normally retails for $16 each) and 2 pro liner pen for $23 (normally $23 each). The lip set comes in a nude set or a pink set and the liners comes with 1 brown and 1 black. I tried to resist but I just can't pass up a good deal. I've never tried the lip pencils but I love their pro liner pen. Not sure when the deal ends.

Givenchy Photo Perfexion match?
I currently use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 hrs in 220 Buff C.  What would be the closest match to this in the Givenchy Photo Perfexion foundation?  I am down to my last drops of the Lancome and would like to try something new.  My local Sephora is small and does not carry the Givenchy to match in store.  Thanks so much!
