Guerlain’s Autumn Collection 2012

by Katie on July 31, 2012

Hot on the heels of the fabulous new ‘La Petite Robe Noire’ perfume release, Guerlain are releasing their new Autumn/Winter make-up palette, all ’80s dark kudos, sophistication and intrigue.

Created by creative director, Olivier Echaudemaison, Natalia Vodianova (looking everso like Linda Evangelista) is made up in rich tonal reds and pinks focusing on their two most popular shades (and building a collection around each), Rouge d’Enfer and Rose Angelique.
Guerlain’s Rouge G L’Extrait lip colour (£29.50) glides on with ease. This is a soft, deep gloss with guts. Seven deadly sin shades are available this A/W’12 to tempt even the most pious of make-up devotees: avarice (beige for greed), coliere (red for wrath), luxure (ochre brown for lust), envie (orange for envy), paresse, orgueil (plum for pride) and gourmandise (raspberry for gluttony). The texture is sultry smooth, seductive and on application, sensual, making Guerlain’s Rouge G de L’Extrait lip colour (goes on like a gloss with the pigmentation and depth of a lipstick) a must-have on any budding seductresses list.
Guerlain’s beautifully designed silver bullet case Rouge G L’Extrait lip shine (£29.50) in it’s more traditional format still with it’s soft click and inbuilt mirror, reveals five new shades from poppy red to intense pink and brick orange. Guerlain’s shades are known for their soft luxe intensity and this range is no different. For the glossy girls, Guerlain’s latest KissKiss Gloss (£21) in Sable Show and Grenade can be used alone or over the lip colour.
To complete the lip range, the smoothest lip liner (£18) in two shades, Rose Dahlia and Bois des Indes complements the range of lip colour reds, pinks and ochres.
The eyes have it in the golden gilt case of perfect long-lasting shadows in the most covetable of colours that work from day to evening. Deep pigmentation with a slight sparkle, Les Favres (£37) goes from the warmth of oranges and browns that highlight tonal red lips while Les Roses highlights pinks. 
Those deadly sin lip colours may make even the daring blush but enter Rose Aux Joues blush duo (£32.50) in the nick of time ranging from peach, to chic pink, rose and pink punk, these duos encourage women to play with cheek colour and dull down or highlight according to their make-up look. “Are you wearing a red lipstick? Pair it with a pink blush to express your absolute femininity or an orange one for a sun-kissed look.”
Saving the best for last, the new Guerlain Parure de Lumiere liquid foundation (launching October 2012) must be in the running for one of the best make-up releases this year and contains luminescent water (which is natural and mineral rich spring water drawn from under the sea). Light to touch with good even coverage, the slight sheen and iridescent glow immediately lifts a complexion and creates highlights. It noticeably elicits complements which is a must for any woman. (£36.50)

Guerlain’s reputation, mastery and elegant packaging is as much sought out as their colours. This season especially, with on-trend colours, it’s all about the swish and making a devastating effect.

Guerlain’s Autumn Collection 2012 is available nationwide in the UK from 7th August (including stockists such as John Lewis, House of Fraser, Harrods, Debenhams and Selfridges).
