While we love filling our makeup kits with blushes and lipsticks and glosses, everyone knows there’s only one ultimate tool of persuasion. Mascara. Guerlain recognise the power of a good mascara and have built their new spring collection around it with the glamboyant Natalia Vodianova as the face of the collection:
“If there’s a woman here who dares to show her face in public without mascara, raise your hand right now!” - Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain Creative Director
Mascara is an essential item, seeing many of us refusing to leave the house without it. It has the ability to dress up our eyes, enliven them, define them and intensify them. The new Cils D’Enfer Maxi Lash (RRP $55) is the perfect accessory to a flirty grin.
The formula blends a combination of polymers to give instant volume and curl. The lashes are wrapped in oils that coat and thicken the lashes, conditioning and softening them so they curl and hold their shape. The brush, designed to avoid clumping and separate lashes, can be used to create three different mascara looks. If you’re looking for an innocent and doll-like flutter, apply the mascara to the top and bottom lashes. For retro-glamour, apply to the top lashes for intense, long lashes, and for a touch of hypnotic edgy glitz, concentrate the application on the outer edge of the lashes. Available in 2 shades: Noir and a limited edition Violet.
To go with your fluttering lashes, you’ll want to intensify your eyes. Guerlain’s new collection includes all the tools you’ll need for eye-catching eyes. The retractable eye pencil, uses a formula of soft waxes and polymers to create a long-lasting and intense eye. We love that the formula is water-proof, and comes in a wide range of pretty jewel coloured shades.
The collection also includes two new collector’s palettes (RRP $98). Attrape-Coeur is a stunning palette, focusing on vibrant violet shades, while Coup de Foudre plays on the gorgeous contrast between khaki green, shimmery bronze and the unexpected pop of tangerine. Match this with the perfect pout, with the newest limited edition, long-wear lipstick shade (RRP $55).
To add a little touch of romance, no matter your relationship status, the collection’s new Meteorites Perles du Paradis (RRP $115) is the perfect accessory. The legendary pearls are now available in a limited edition, extra large size, and dust the face with a gentle, angelic glow. The product contains six different shaded pearls, including two brand new colours in soft pink, to brighten dull areas and silver to reflect light and encourage total radiance.
