EDIT: Swatches are now up!
One word: GORGEOUS. I wasn't really planning on hauling that fun friday night, but when I passed by the Guerlain counter at Rustan's, I was greeted by a selling event featuring the Cherry Blossom collection which I have been lemming for since November 2009. Well, I am happy to report that the wait has been worth it! :)
Here are some pretty photos of the blush and eyeshadow quad:
I love how elegant the case looks. The simplicity of the delicate black creates a beautiful contrast with the colorful eyeshadows/blush when you open the case.
Blush Éclat Cherry Blossom 07 & Ombre Éclat 408 Jeu d'Ombrelles
The blush, when applied, creates a light, pretty pastel pink flush.
Blush Éclat Cherry Blossom 07 swatch:
No, that's not a bruise on my arm, that's actually the blush swatch ;) i hope you can see it!
MA did a good job on giving me tips and a mini tutorial on how to blend the colors in the palette.
Eyeshadow palette 408 Jeu d'Ombrelles swatches:
colors from left to right: upper left, upper right, lower left and lower right
I like the combination of the upper left and lower right shade, perfect for a sweet daytime look! Just blend in the darker colors for a soft smoky eye look.
I am officially declaring that I am a giddy Guerlain fan. I really love the texture of their eyeshadows. MA also tried the Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow Primer on me, which I loved, and now lemming for. Oh dear. Good thing it was OOS. hahaha! I should just remind myself that gorgeous things really come to those who wait. ^_~
Have a happy weekend!
ps. The MAC Spring Color Forecast collection will be available today at MAC counters/stores (except Marrionaud, Mall of Asia which will be launching the collection on Sunday) MAC junkies rejoice! ;)
