Guerlain Spring 08 -Exotic Paradise

Guerlain's new Spring colleciton called Exotic Paradise is on counters now and well worth checking out. The quality of the makeup is outstanding and the colors for Spring are so bright and fun.

I tried the eyeshadows for the first time. I am not sure how I never used Guerlain shadows, since I use and love the Kiss Kiss Lipsticks, Parure foundation, Terracotta, and of course the perfumes.

The eyeshadows are not flaky or soft. These have a solid consistency which means loads of pigment and they stay put. Thats the wow for me, as you will know if you are a regular reader. I have eyeshadow melt. Ones that hold up well make me so happy and these did. The colors being so pretty didn't hurt either. Shown are L'Instant Charnel- a golden pale peach and L'Instant Emeraude- a deep green,with a hint of olive in it. I love my greens .
There are 10 eyeshadow shades in all .

The Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine lipstick comes in 4 shades. This is a high gloss finish lipstick. Shown is Grenadine Shine , a medium Coral. The shade seen all over the runways for Spring.

The Kiss Kiss glosses come in some more unique shades like Pomme du Desir. Yes it is sort of green. A lemon yellow -green and on it is surprisingly pretty. I did my best to swatch it for you. They are very sheer. It goes on very sparkly and more gold than green. Really hard to describe but definitely nicer than you think. I really like it. I also have Orange Interdite, which is light orange with large glitter pieces. These glossess are all beautiful.

There are quite a few other products and you can see them all at your nearest counter or at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales , Neimans and Saks online.

Mono eyeshadow $ 34.00
Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine and regular lip $30.00
Kiss Kiss Gloss $ 29.00
