Are you planning on purchasing any of the Guerlain Summer 2011 collection?  

What catches your eye?

Honestly, for me, the Fuchsia gloss looks really intriguing and of course the TAUPE cream eyeshadow!

  1. Guerlain has always been best known for their bronzing makeup, and this collection looks really fabulous!

    I'm especially excited about the new cream shadows! The colors are just so up my alley! So... can't wait this collection hits the counter here!

  2. Not a chance in a million that I would buy these as i am very broke but the look of these is just awesome. they look like a sculpture!

  3. Kohl Kajal. My powder Kohl from Guerlain is the most I've ever spent on an "eyeliner" and it's amazing. I don't regret it one bit. I've seen the mixed reviews for it, but I think that's from women who don't use it the Indian way. I love that it instantly enhances my eyes and sticks around forever! Even after washing my face it sort of smudges down in to my lashes and continues to draw attention to my eyes and look nice.

    Hopefully the Kohl Kajal will provide the same benefits as the kohl powder without getting gritty dust in my eyes (my contacts do hate my terrible application methods).

  4. That taupe cream shadow will be hard to resist!

  5. Inca Orange looks gorgeous. Love that packaging!

  6. The glosses were too sheer for me. I missed out on the cream shadows :(
    I had to have the powder is superb though - love it!

  7. OMG I need the Inca Rose gloss, I was looking for a gloss that color and w/o shimmer as well as looooooooooooving that packaging omg.

  8. This may very well bust the Guerlain cherry for me! I don't own any - I've been obsessing over the Guerlain liners and shadows.

  9. Oooh, taupe cream. I like the sound of that. The Kajal sounds interesting too. I think the eyeshadow palette looks pretty but I'm not sure how easy it would be to load a brush with individual colour. That is one I will really need to see in the flesh.

  10. That eye shadow quad looks gorgeous - love the gold shade!! And seriously... a CREAM eye shadow that's meant to withstand heat. How awesome is that?! Can't wait to try it out and see if it really does come through on that promise. I have horrendously oily skin, and practically go through gallons of Mattify Ultra Powder to keep from looking like an oil slick. Of course the problem gets even worse in the summer. If I could find a cream eye shadow that would work on my oily skin, I'd be in heaven!
