Guerlain Goodies

On Wednesday, my mom and I went for our complimentary 30 minute make-up consultations at the Guerlain counter in Harvey Nichols. We were both given makeovers and it was quite fun!

This is what we ended up buying:

We got a 'Le 2' mascara each, in black. The first time I eyed this mascara up was when I was 16 or so, way before I got into a full-blown make-up obsession! The tube is just so glamourous and stylishly designed. It's REALLY LONG by the way! about 1/3 longer than the typical mascara.  This is a dual-ended mascara. One end has a normal-sized rubber bristle brush, which you use to coat your upper lashes, and the other end has a tiny natural bristle brush, which you use to coat your lower lashes and the harder-to-reach upper lashes at the corner.

I've only used this mascara once so far, and so far I like it. It's waterproof, very black, and really lengthens and volumizes my lashes. The only downside is that it doesn't hold a curl, and instead weighs my lashes down.

My mom basically doesn't own any eyeshadows, so she decided to get this gorgeous 'Ecrin 6 Couleurs' limited edition spring 2011 eyeshadow palette.

This next item was not purchased on Wednesday, but is actually a blush that my sister has had for a while now, but never used, since she hardly wears make-up and never wears blush lol. She actually got it free at a Guerlain event a while back! So lucky. But now it's MINE!! :P

This is the 'Rose Plein Vent' blush in the '4 Eclats' blush range. When applied to the cheeks, it's a soft peachy-pink colour with a very flattery pearly finish that makes your cheeks glow. The shimmer is basically undetectable. 

The blush is actually more pink in person. My lighting was weird. I'm so happy to own this blush now!
So what do you think of these goodies? I think the Guerlain make-up range is beautiful, and of such high quality, but the high prices definitely make the products occasional treats ;)
