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

I was thinking the same, I don't have Georgia but I'm not sure I want it now just for the packaging. 

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Can those of you who have been singing the praises of Maxilash post some before/after photos?

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Here ya go! Let the giant eyeball photos commence... After applying it today I realized that I do actually prefer the YSL by a bit. If given the choice, I would always select the YSL because it applies so cleanly and doesn't require a pass with the lash comb.

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Thank you! It's so much more helpful to actually see the results than just to hear people describing them!

 

Your eyes are beautiful, by the way!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Not a problem. And thank you! I should also add that the effect is not quite the same as the YSL which I prefer. Maxi Lash thickens and lengthens, whereas YSL mostly defines and lengthens. I would say Maxi Lash has a denser formula which is what makes it clump a little in application... But nothing a lash comb can't easily sort out!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Your eyes are even more mesmerizing up close!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Great eyes!  Shape, color, lashes!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I'll try to take one tomorrow, but for when you see the photos, keep in mind that my lashes are naturally long and straight and won't curl no matter what. Maxi Lash is either very nearly on par with or is on par with my favorite YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils. I find it looks very natural while also lengthening and emphasizing, does not flake or smudge and lasts all day, and is easy to remove.

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Gwenhwyfar, have you tried any of the colored mascaras?  Im just curious if everyones love of the maxi mascara extends to the formula of the non-black shades.

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I have not. I only have the mini sizes in black. I would love the brown, but I'm not about to spend the money on a full size mascara when I rarely wear it and I have so many minis to get through!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I love Guerlain and it all started with the Meteorites. Now I fell in love with their Rouge Automatique lipsticks too and I found my perfect coral pink. I love the smell of their products 🙂

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

the smell of all of their products is appealing to me as well

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

I just ordered my first set of meteorites, do i really need their brush?  or is a nice full brush from anyone pretty much fine?

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Hi buggirl, I dont have the guerlain meteorites brush. So i am using one of those dense brushes from sephora collection which works fine... 🙂

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Agreed, I don't use the Meteorites brush. I don't like the feel of it at all. 

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Here! I love Guerlain. I first got hooked on their perfumes. There is a very characteristic scent to many of them, they call it 'Guerlainade'. I have 3. I have Meteorites, the summer limited edition bronzer, plus I've had a few foundations. I'm not wild about the skin care. But overall the brand is great. My Sephora does not carry it. If anyone needs a special item from Guerlain I recommend Marquez at the Guerlain boutique at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. He is the best, really knows the products. I just ordered the Rouge G mascara. I wore it from a sample one day and 3 people said my lashes were crazy long!

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Which 3 perfumes do you have, Anne?

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Anne- as per your prior suggestion I checked- my state doesn't have a freestanding store, so Ill make sure to call your gentleman in Las Vegas if I have more in depth questions.  If you want to sample several items do you just call him and ask?

 

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Hi! So yes call Marquez. He has always been very generous with samples for me. PM me if you need the number. Let's see my perfumes are Terracotta Le Parfum (love, love, love) Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde, and Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia. I actually just got some samples of some more. I'm tempted to get one of the more $$ perfumes. I like 'French Kiss'..Also, Marquez says that they will have the holiday collection there in 2 weeks and it will ship out then! Christmas in October, yay! I think one of the great things about Meteorites is they last and they stay beautiful, whereas with palettes, etc. once you have dipped your brush over time they don't look as pretty but I feel like Meteorites stay really nice to look at..

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

my neiman marcus is not being very responsive about the holiday collection, so I'm giiving them a couple of days and then I'm calling your guy

Re: For the love of all things Guerlain

Hey maybe your guy will know what the lip color actually is!
