Guerlain’s Spring 2011 collection is titled Sur Me Levres or “on my lips”. Many of the items will be available in black casing to bring out the very vibrant colors in this collection.
One of the stars of the collection is the Blush G (Limited Edition) – $65.00, which to be honest, looks rather epic. Packaged in a shiny lacquered black case within a suede pouch lined in fuchsia satin, the Blush G is made of coloured stripes in an energized orange, intense fuchsia, delicate pink and pearly pink embossed with a G. Guerlain has confirmed that these colors go all the way through to the bottom of the pan. Definitely on my list.
Sur Mes Levres includes four Rouge G limited edition shades ($46.00 each) in black lacquer cases, and as always infused crushed ruby powder. I swear, it makes a difference. The look I get from the other Rouge G lipsticks that I own is absolutely beautiful. The colors:
- 24 Rouge Sensuel
- 45 Orange Euphorique
- 70 Fuchsia Délice
- 71 Rose Désir
Guerlain is introducing new pressed Illuminating and Mattifying powders in Meteorite Voyage-styled compacts, in three shades for $56 each. According to Guerlain, the price includes the compact. The compacts are smaller in circumference than the typical Voyage compact–these are meant to toss into one’s bag for touch ups on the go. I’m picturing them as little macarons, but I’m not sure of their exact size. Of course, Guerlain is known for making very high-quality powders and so I suspect that these will be well worth a look:
This time, the Écrin 6 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palette is named Rue de Rivoli ($84.00), a name to which I have a deep sentimental attachment based on my visits to Paris. Unlike the other palettes with the same format, Rue de Rivoli is limited edition. According to Guerlain, “the key ingredient Moonstone offers its silvery and bluish reflections to adorn the eyes with its lamellar structure and allows for the eyeshadow to stay on longer and look fresher.” Breathtaking.

I suspect that we’ll begin seeing these during early to mid-January on counters. I cannot wait.
