Guerlain Fall Collection 2009: Guerlain Slavic Beauty Collection

Guerlain+Slavic+Beauty+Collection

As always Guerlain releases an elegant and very pretty selection for Fall 2009 entitled Slavic Beauty.

Jump ahead for some Musings about this collection!

I’m quite eager to see Guerlain Holiday 2009 as it’s always my favorite collection of the year but I can feel the excitement in the air for Guerlain Fall 2009. Guerlain Slavic Beauty is a selection of rich plums, browns, and purples which make up a very pretty palette for Autumn. As always Guerlain keeps things fresh with the release of Guerlain Russian Doll Blush which is a sheer pink liquid blush in a elegant tall purple bottle. Also releasing are two Guerlain Russian Beauty Eye Shadow Palettes one of which is made up of rich browns and the other purples and pinks (I have my eye on both). Another brand new take is a Guerlain Eye and Lip Palette which I haven’t seen from Guerlain before this. It includes two colors and two eye colors.

Cheap Beauty Challenge: Maybelline Focus On Gold Expert Wear Eye Shadow Review and Swatches


This Summer you can go with any number of luxurious posh brands of eye shadow for a smoldering, sizzling Summer eye look. However, the economy may be preventing you from indulging in prices per shadow of $18 and upwards.

If you’re wanting to save a buck or two and still have a pretty sun kissed look this season jump ahead and join me on another Cheap Beauty Challenge!

This round of Cheap Beauty Challenge I’m spotlighting the new Maybelline Focus on Gold Collection. I hope everyone had a chance to sneak a peek at the shadows released in this collection as indeed they are golden, price wise and color.

This beauty challenge consists of a completed look using point products only which in this case would be eye shadows. Anything else such as blush, foundation, etc…is excluded from the total cost of the look. The challenge is to create a Summer friendly look for eyes without breaking the bank.

Of course you can go with any number of incredible brands this season for some seriously beautiful looks. Such as Clarins Instant Sun Light Shimmer Palette for Eyes ($36), any number of Urban Decay Eye Shadows such as Half Baked, Baked, and Twice Baked (all would make an incredible Summer look $16 each or $28 for a palette), or some of MAC Style Warrior Eye Shadows ($29 for 2 Shades).

If you’re not willing to dish out for any of the above do head to your local drugstore with a $10 dollar bill and snag yourself some of the new Maybelline Focus on Gold Expert Eye Shadows. I found these at Harmon’s Beauty Store for $2.92 each and they are truly a gem. Plenty cheap, plenty pigmented, and perfect for a Summer eye look!


The shades I got were Golden Rays (Golden Bronze), Pink Sunsation (Beige Pink), and Copper Coast (Copper Bronze. Each shade is silky smooth, blends lovely for a drugstore brand, and has plenty of pigment. The finish is velvet with a hint of sparkle.


The total cost for my Summer makeup look below was $5.84 as I used two of the shadows to create it. I used Golden Rays all over my lid and contrasted the shade with Copper Coast in the lid.


Honestly, if you’re not willing to dig in deep to your saving for a warm Summer look just head to the couch and dig around for some spare change (and stale cheetos if you get lucky!) and indulge in one or two of these shadows. Count me impressed for the price. Maybelline Focus On Gold is a great contender for this Cheap Beauty Challenge!

I guess sometimes it’s ok to be cheap but don’t tell anyone I said that!

Likey!

Anyone try haul these?
