This is my first "large" Guerlain purchase, as I generally buy Guerlain pieces one-at-a-time. I generally stay away from this line because it's quite costly but I've been buying more and more from the brand. I couldn't resist this collection!
This is my first Rouge G. It's a medium rose-pink on my mauve-tinged lips. The color is sheer and lovely but the shimmers are a bit gritty. Other Rouge Gs I have swatched in the past are not so gritty so it may be this particular color's issue. I still like it, regardless! The casing is indeed heavy but not as heavy as I expected. It's a good weight but the magnetic closure is rather weak. I don't find the angle of the mirror that helpful in applying the lipstick but it's better than having no mirror at all!
The Blush G, of course, is phenomenal! This is the item everyone is scrambling to find and I can see why. I can't believe how lovely it is! I only swatched individual colors but when I post a tutorial using this blusher, I will swirl all four shades together. I suggest you use a stippling/skunk brush for application. It's pigmented enough and has a slightly golden sheer. If you can still find it, purchase it right away!
This Soupir eye shadow is now one of my favorites browns. And believe me, I own tons of 'em so this is special. The iridescent shimmers sparkle delicately, not garishly, on my lids. It is smooth and lasts 8 hours, even without a primer! Plus, this eyeshadow is ENORMOUS. It holds nearly double or more than my standard eyeshadow singles so the price of $36 wasn't too daunting considering I will use this for ages. The other colors, the grey and white shimmers, did not swatch well so I wasn't impressed enough with them to take them home with me. The grey was admittedly a bit better than the white, though!
