I have recently discovered Guerlain. I am completely in love with this brand & the products. It has been around since 1838!

Starting with perfume, they custom made scents for Queen Victoria of England and Queen Isabelle of Spain! (I am a HUGE European Monarchy history buff..)

Anyways from there, they developed their amazing skin care & makeup line.

Beautiful! I'm getting started on this brand as well! I purchased the holiday e/s palette but unfortunately the violets are not for me. I'm returning it but I'm sure I'll be replacing it with another!

I too am intrigued with Guerlain! I just last night placed an order at Sephora using the VIB discount for Guerlain's Parure Extreme Luminous Extreme Wear Foundation. I am excited to try it, has rave reviews!

The Meteorites always tempt me, but I have yet to take the plunge! Someday :P

These are my Guerlain products, very happy with all three :smile:

Ombre Eclat 4 Shades in Rose Boise
KissKiss Strass in Beige Mousseline
Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder in Blondes

I ordered more Rouge G lipsticks and some e/s palettes during the engraving event going on at NM still, I think. They will engrave your name on the metal cases. I have no idea why that tickles me so much, but it does. Love Rouge G lipsticks.

oh gawd! I LOVE guerlain. Their pressed meteorites are the only things I've EVER hit the pan on! So I've already purchased them twice. I'm debating the voyage one...but it does cost a pretty penny and I've heard that if you travel internationally, they can be found a teeny bit cheaper at duty free shops.

Currently I'm loving my 3rd pressed meteorites in rose, the holiday edition meteorites, and the LE mascara. I also wear Shalimar when I want to feel a little dirty :winkiss:

I have heard so many rave reviews of the kisskiss gloss, I'm going to have to go and get some!

Nekonat - are the pressed meteorites the same as the loose ones in the jars? I am wanting a compact for my purse, not nessesarily in the meteorites though, do you use yours as a powder after your foundation/concealer?

Oh man, I just want to buy it all to try!

outtacontrol-I find that the pressed meteorites give a little bit more of a "shimmer" look to it vs. the loose ones. Yes, I do use it as a powder after my foundation.

LOL! yes yes! Buy it all :smile:

oohhh! I die! all of these are beautiful!

Thanks for the info nekonat! That's good to know

Beauty addict - Thanks for sharing! I see that diorshow mascara in your pic... I have heard many good things about that too. I wonder how it compares to lancome's defenicils which I have used forever.. lol I've never seen the indian khol like that, just the powder one which I have. Is it more creamy? or still powdery?

Keep them coming ladies!
