[productsamples] I featured the Goldenland palette last week, but now I have the rest of the collection that launches in November. I think the Rouge G cases are some of the best I’ve ever seen in terms of elegance and classic design. Rouge G, with its incorporated mirror, is a weighty thing compared to other lipsticks but it does mean that you can touch up any time, any where – the mechanic is seamless so when you pull the lipstick and the case apart, that mirror just glides up. The one thing I find irritating is that you can’t stand them up…
There’s something of the scarab about them this time around, I think.
There are three new shades for this collection – No.95, a peach tone with a golden sheen, No.96 a sheeny, rosy nude, and No. 94, a matte raspberry.
I think these colours all have natural partners with the casings but obviously, because cases and lipsticks are sold separately, you can mix it up as you wish.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The cases are £18 and the lipsticks are £26. If you already have a case that you’re fond of, then all you need is the filler.
Of course, there is a new Meteorites Pearls edition (limited) with a selection of toned pearls – although they’re a mix of matte and metallic, as a whole it favours metallic and you may find it just a bit too glowy unless you’re sparing – don’t be tempted to double dip!
I’m thinking I might crush down some of the darker pearls and see how they translate to eye shadow – there’s a burgundy colour that I think would look stunning. They’re £44.
Finally, there’s the Terracotta Highlighting Powder (limited) which I find much less metallic than the Meteorites, although it does have a light catching sparkle (which I can’t replicate with my camera in a swatch so I haven’t). If you don’t like twinkles on your face, save this one for decollete or shoulders where it will look gorgeous. It’s £42.
