For the love of all things Guerlain

There is a line that has buried itself in my heart (and my pocketbook), and it is Guerlain.  I know Im not the only one out there.  I thought I would start this thread for the discussion of all things Guerlain, skin care, makeup, perfume, places to get good gwp or good samples.  Experiences people have had, looks people have created with the products.  

 

For me it all started with a makeover by Guerlain's own Marie Line at my local Neiman Marcus.  She spent an hour with me and I left feeling calm and happy.  

 

As a mother of 4 year old twins and as a doctor I spend my live rushing through the day, often without enough sleep, more often without enough water, taking care of everyone else.  It shows on my face, in the fatigue in my eyes, in the puffiness and dark circles under them.  While I have been blessed with good skin it can be confused, aging (I bought my guerlain the day prior to my 40th birthday), but still with an oily t zone, and with patchy dry spots on my cheeks likely from the dry air in my medical work environment.  One of the things she said to me was- make it about a ritual for you, and dont leave it until your going to fall asleep.  I walked out with the orchidee imperiele gel cream, eye and lip cream and white/brightenining serum.  It was a birthday gift to myself.  And now every night I sit down for 15 minutes and wash my face and slowly carry through the ritual.  a ritual of energy expended and renewed.  Breathing in the soft smell of the orchids.  Im still using a cleanser and exfoliator from another line given how much I spent, but I have seen substantial change in my face in the 3 weeks since.  

 

so thats my story, and I would love to share a discussion with other lovers of Guerlain, especially as we eagerly anticipate the 2015 holiday collection.

RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

So I received my spring 2018 strobing palette and kisskiss love lipsticks today.

 

The palette pan arrived separated from the compact. I wonder if this is a one-off or defective? Going to request exchange or replacement. The lipsticks all have like a scrape going up the pointy side of the heart bullet. But there is no scraped lipstick inside the tube so it must be how it was poured and shaped. One bullet isn't inserted all the way and it pops up and out, scraping against the top of the lid. Again, one-off or lack of quality control??

 

Kinda disappointed! But I love it anyway! Still on the hunt for kisskiss 574.

@shimmerbait  Is the compact as warm-toned as it looks in your photo?  My pink lipstick came today, but it showed up too corally on me, so it's going back.

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@Ispend2much6  I do think it's warm toned but it's more pink. i have not yet mastered the art of the iPhone camera lol

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@shimmerbait  I know what you mean.  Our walls are yellowish-cream, so every picture I take is warmer than in real life.

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@shimmerbait My compact arrived like that, too! But I was easily able to pop it back in, and there wasn't much glue so I'm guessing that was the reason for it. 

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@lachaton  I'm glad it was not just mine, but you would think at this price they could afford to not be so cheap with the (amount of) glue!

RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

:-(

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

Aw such a bummer! Are you going to take it back and get another or just glue it in? How do the lipsticks apply? They are so pretty but I see myself making a mess with that shape...

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@AnneMCC   I might try gluing back in.. i'm not sure!  smells really good thought!  I haven't tried the lipsticks yet so not sure about the application but they look so creamy.

Re: RE: For the love of all things Guerlain

@shimmerbait Guerlain lipsticks are the bomb! I'm sure they will be great...

I can add some more detailed descriptions of the shades, opacity, finish etc. later. Hope this helps for now!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Thanks so much!!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

wow the terracotta gold light looks really shimmery..thanks for posting all the swatches @6ixGirl

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Anyone have swatches of any of the holiday releases? Especially the two rouge g's, terracotta gold light, and the gold palette

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I was just popping in here to ask the same thing! My Guerlain rep doesn’t have testers yet at Neimans and I’m dying to see what the bronzer looks like.

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I am waiting for the Holiday Palette - I was on Sephora site at lunchtime today, had a mini cardiac when I saw it, but when I clicked on it it said "product unavailable" so I figured Sephora's doing their mojo getting it ready to go and I'll give 'em a while, but just now looked for it and it's no where in sight.  What??

 

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

@kalikiepua My guess is that Sephora pulls down some high End or very popular items before the sale so that they don’t get bought up at 20% off. 

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

yep, sounds about right
