GUERLAIN HOLIDAY COLLECTION 2015: WINTER FAIRY TALE

The Guerlain Holiday Collection is always one I look forward to, year after year. The brand is steeped in luxury and tradition and continuously bring out some of the most innovative, yet traditional seasonal products that are worthy of excitement. Just look at that glowing-gold packaging; what screams I'm ready for the holidays more than that? And on that note, can we please fast-forward to them now? If you're not ready yet, read on...

Guerlain's Holiday 2015 Inspiration: Imagine a quiet winter evening. Snow lending its brightness to the steel grey sky from which it falls. Snowflakes glistening as they float through the air and fall on the still ground beneath. These are the inspirations behind Guerlain's much anticipated, limited edition Winter Fairy Tale Holiday 2015 Collection. The festive assortment captivates, dazzles and entices with its stunning array of makeup and powders. Encased in whimsical, elegant packaging, this entire collection takes skin from dull and dry to radiant and glowing regardless of the cool winter weather.

Now that you've been transported to the perfect whimsical winter evening, let me tell you about the two stars of this collection, the Météorites Perles De Neiges and the Eye & Blush Palette

The Météorites Perles De Neiges are beautiful, as they always are. But this time, Guerlain took the typical powder pearls and added illuminating snowflake-shaped pearls as well. These little pearls are complexion transforming, which is why I am never without mine. This special edition version gives the complexion a perfected look while also adding a wintery touch of radiance and subtle iridescence thanks to the inclusion of the snowflakes. I love the soft-focused glow that these pearls give, and that they make a real difference to the complexion while remaining subtle. 

It's hard to look at this stunning product and not talk about the packaging, which is enough of a reason to add this to your must-have list immediately. I don't think your vanity has ever seen something more beautiful.

The Eye & Blush Palette is one of the most exciting palettes I've come across in some time. This one includes an array of shades that are stunning, all of which will see equal play-time. The included shadows are all of satiny iridescence and done in perfectly wearable golden and neutral shades. The bottom half of the palette houses 2 matte blushes in rosewood and coral shades, and 2 illuminating blushes in pink and peach with a golden streak. I love each blush shade included, and also love the brightened effect it gives the cheeks when swirled together as one. 

These pieces are both perfect for use and truly works of art. It's safe to say Guerlain has me longing for the glowing warmth of winter nights and the holiday season already. Have you tried anything from the collection?
