Guerlain Crazy Paris Holiday Makeup 2013……………..Mini Haul
How’s it going? I may have mentioned that i look forward to the holiday makeup collections released every year and Guerlain always come up with some great ones. This year is no exception. They have included a lot of vibrant shades in their collection.
I usually opt for the Meteorites but i have now got a bit of a collection so i gave them a miss this year. The two stand out products for me were the Ultra Violet Top Coat for nails and the Rouge Automatique Lipstick in, 660 Illusion.
Rouge Automatique Lipstick, 660 Illusion
First of all, i have never owned one of these lipsticks before and i am so in love with how the lipstick dispenses from the cartridge or casing, whatever it’s called!.
The two pics on the right above have been taken with flash to accentuate the pink iridescent shimmer within the lipstick.
I got the SA to try out the shade on me and fell head over heals in love with it straight away. It appears very dark in the bullet but applies as a gorgeous hot pink with blue/purple undertones (helps keep the teeth looking white). It has pink iridescent sparkles which catch the light, giving a duo chrome effect, almost.
The lipstick itself applies smoothly with a water like feel on the lips but also applies with intensity too. It lasts for hours on the lips and doesn’t have a drying effect at all, like so many others do with great pigmentation. Because it is so soft, the downside of this is that it is disappearing quickly. I have wore it on 3 occasions and i am nearly one third of the way through the bullet. It is limited edition so i have bought a back up. I’m not running out of this one and i urge Guerlain to make it a permanent line. It is truly stunning! This shade is going to suit most people and is ideal for the party season.
Another party favourite. I am told that the nails turn white under ultra violet light. To me, it makes a great top coat with a blue undertone to it. I have to wear top coat as my nail polishes chip very easily. Not a must have but a fun top coat that fits in well with the Crazy Paris theme of the collection.
It also gives a healthy bluish pink when applied to a clean nail.
What is your favourite party makeup? Have fun and i will see you all soon. 😉
