Guerlain Goldenland Collection
[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.
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.
