AW09/10: Guerlain Slavic Beauty Collection


From Moscow with love - think matryoshka dolls, onion spires and model and muse Natalia Vodianova: all inspirations fueling Guerlain's creative director Olivier Echaudemaison, in his development of the forthcoming Slavic Beauty autumn / winter collection.

It's very pretty  - of course it is -  because this is Guerlain, and everything they do is pretty much gorgeous. Elegant, fabulously plumed, the star of the show is the limited edition Volga Princess Eyes and Lips Palette, €62. Two taupe eyeshadows are complemented by rosewood and sparkling pink lip colours, with the lot embossed in a pattern derived from Slavic art.

Above top left is Ombre Éclat 4 Shades in 406 Tsarina, and it's €50.21. Like its immediate predecessor in the spring summer collection, it's so adorable I wouldn't be able to bring myself to y'know - USE it. It's limited, but the baby beside it, KissKiss Baby Nourishing Lip Balm with SPF10, will stay on counter permanently. Six shades of wild mango butter and luffa oil-enriched balms are on offer:  200 Cristal, Nude220 Red Nude, 240 Honey Nude, 241 Rosewood Nude, 260 Romantic Nude and 261 Rosy Nude. Each is €27.11


Bottom left is the Retractable Eye Pencil €24, available in three shades: gold, silver or dark pink, and it's got its own built-in sharpener. Clever!
