Hi Everyone, 

I got so excited about this years spring collection. I have not purchased anything from Guerlain in a while. To be honest I skiped out on a few collections but after seeing the preview photos for this years spring collection I felt like I rediscovered Guerlain.
I purchased the 502 COUP DE FOUDRE eyeshadow palette, MAXI LASH 01 NOIR mascara, MAXI LASH 02 VIOLET & the star of the collection MÉTÉORITES PERLES DU PARADIS.

The eyeshadow palette I decided to get is the 502 COUP DE FOUDRE, these are gorgeous colours that can be mixed & matched

This palette has shades of mint green, olive green, graphite and a beautiful vibrant coral. I love the fact that Guerlain shadows are easily blendable. Since my YSL eyeshadow duo 07 that was a limited edition, I have been on the search for the perfect green quad. This quad was exactly what I was looking for.

I think green eyeshadows have become one of my essentials for neutral looks and smokey eyes.

Next I got the MÉTÉORITES PERLES DU PARADIS which is the star of the collection.

Guerlain Météorites pearls are legendary, I have become some what of a collector : ) The pearls in this Météorites are much larger than the usual size which does not bother me at all. I think it makes it fun and very unexpected.

Perles du Paradis features six skin-toned and pastel shades in a limitied edition packaging. The traditional correcting colours blue and green have been replaced by pink, to brighten dull areas. The silver pearl is designed to reflect light for a gorgeous glow. I have been using the perles du paradis this past week, it made my skin have a beautiful glow and it was almost like my complexion lit up.

This Météorites came with a beautiful pink powder puff which I thought added a vintage flair. I used a brush to apply the product to my face. Even though the pink puff is beautiful I think the product is best applied with a brush. The shimmer is very subtle, you can use it as a highlighter or as a all over face powder.

Next on my list was their new mascara CILS D´ENFER 01 NOIR and 02 VIOLET.

Guerlain does exceptional packaging when it comes to their products, this mascara was no different.
I always consider their product packaging as a sought after accessory. This is a volumizing mascara. My first impressions are I do like the brush a lot, the packaging of this mascara is more compact in comparison to their classic mascara NOIR 2 NOIR. 

What are your thoughts on this collection ? Wishing you a wonderful day xoxo LB
