Guerlain, «Belle de Nuit»: Christmas 2011 Collection

beautyspy  Guerlain X mass Collection Guerlain, «Belle de Nuit»: Christmas 2011 Collection

There is something about the house of Guerlain, that always brings in my mind, elegant French women, drinking red wine at  “Les Deux Magot” one of the most famous Parisian wine bar-coffee restaurants in the district of Saint- German- des- Pres. Guerlain is no doubt, the epitome of French beauty…

Soon to become “The Emperor’s Perfumer” in the 19th Century, Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain founded the Guerlain dynasty in Paris in 1828(!). Even though he first travelled to London, studied to be a chemist and imported products from England, it was not long before he started creating his own products, in his studio on Place d l’Etoile, attracting an affluent clientele.

One of the oldest continuously operating perfume houses in the world, Guerlain has created some of the world’s most durable fragrances over its 170 years. From the legendary Jicky to the best-selling Shalimar and Samsara to my personal favorite Idylle, Guerlain’s scents have established a worldwide reputation for quality, luxury, and elegance. In conjunction with its perfume products, Guerlain also produces bath accessories and skin care products, as well as cosmetics and skin care products under the Issima name. Guerlain operates a chain of 23 boutiques throughout the world, continuing the long-held policy of direct marketing and individual customer service that has enabled the company to remain at the forefront of perfume fashions.

In the new Christmas collection Guerlain pays tribute to the “Belle de nuit”, the woman that only wants the best, when it comes to her make up ritual. With limited edition products like the “Perfumed Shimmer Powder”, the “Meteorites Perles de Nuit”, the “Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder and Blush” and the beautiful eye shadow quad palette, “Les Ombres de Nuit”, once more Guerlain tops our Christmas wish list.

 

Perfumed Shimmer Powder

Looks like a perfume straight from the 19th century but this amazing powder gives you in one press a beautiful body shimmer while at the same time leaves a perfumed veil that sensually wraps around your body… Sheer perfection.

Meteorites Perles de Nuit

Probably of the most famous Guerlain Beauty Products the festive Meteorites can be used to illuminate the complexion in just one stroke.

Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder and Blush

Looks like a piece of peacock art,  but at the same time this satin powder has a formula of subtle shimmer that simultaneously brightens the complexion whist giving freshness and sexy color to the cheeks and cheekbones.

Rouge G No 26 Gardner

If you are going to choose a red lipstick for New Years Eve, let it be the Guerlain Rouge G No 26 Gardner. The shade might look to bright from the tube, but its actually sheer and it leaves a subtle golden shimmer.

    Just beautifull!! Everytime I bought a powder or blusher like the paecocky one I couldn’t bring myself to spoil it so they all ended up stocking up in my cupboards and drawers. They are small works of art and the colors plain amazing. Natalia looks lovely also, blue is definately her color. I must say I love Guerlain, he has some of the most amazing perfumes in the industry and if you find yourself in Thessaloniki you should visit their corner in the new Notos which is equivalent to the Paris perfume store and has ALL their perfumes including my favorites Cruel Gardenia and Iris Ganache!!!
    Kisses for a great weekend!!
