Guerlain Spring Collection 2011

Guerlain Spring Collection 2011 4

Guerlain Spring 2010 brought us visions of Cherry Blossoms. The collection was feminine, flirty, and pink! Images of Spring 2011 are popping up on quite a few European websites and this year it doesn’t quite capture the Spring vibe it did last year. Guerlain goes a bit more traditional this year with a resort-y type Spring Collection. It’s not uncommon for brands to do bronze, resort-like shades and collections for Spring as we are still deep in Winter when they release these items and I guess they feel like people are gearing up for warmer weather or a mid-Winter break to some fabulous Island. Whatever the case may be Guerlain captures some of that vibe with Spring 2011.

Let’s have a glance at the images.

Guerlain KissKiss Gloss Haute Brillance

  • Frizzy Mango
  • Moka Shake
  • Rosy Plump

That blush looks stunning and definitely captures the essence of a great vacation in the middle of Winter! Although I will say the eyeshadow palette was somewhat mismatched with the rest of the release. Seeing popping shades of orange, pink, and fuchsia and following up with purple and gray for eyes seemed a tad out of place.

What do you think?

    At first glance I though the eyeshadow palette was called ‘Rue de Ravioli. Lol. Shows how good my french is.
    It’s a nice collection, nothing super special. The current holiday collection is more appealing to me.

    Oh, Guerlain, you are always so pretty. Thank you for posting those! Seeing photos of their products makes me want a beautiful old-timey vanity to display them on. Then the realistic side of my brain kicks in and says “you have too many eyeshadows as it is!! Stop that!”

    By chance does anyone here know how to pronounce “Guerlain”? I’ve got an idea, but I’m not sure and I’d like to peep ‘em out at the counter more often. I worry the ladies who work there already don’t take me seriously, and if I go in there saying “lemme see dem dere gorlanes mete-o-rites please?” they’ll just roll their eyes at the country bumpkin. (btw, I don’t actually talk like that, just makin’ some over-exaggerations for dramatic effect. too much coffee. :))

    Awesome, thank you! I had a feeling that’s how it went (though I kept trying to fancify the “lain” part and it was not sounding good at all).

    And, yes! I never understood it! I took my younger sister to a counter a few months ago and the woman looked at us like we were unwashed miscreants! I’m almost thirty for pete’s sake.

    the middle lipstick is calling my name. I’m not a huge guerlain fan – I find quality vs. price that I’m happier with Chanel and Dior but that is a pretty redddie orangie corally need it color. I’ll peep at it when it hits the counters. TY For the post

    I like the palette, especially that magenta (hot pink?). Although I may just buy that as a stand alone color rather than a palette if it’s offered. :-D

    Sara I asked an associate at the Guerlain counter how to say it correctly. She said it could be pronouced a couple of way…but that if I were speaking in the English language then the pronunciation would be like muse said:

    Grrr-Lahwn.

    I’ve only had one associate get a snooty attitude with me and that was at the makeup counter in Bergdorf Goodman. I almost informed her that she was wearing a nametag and that I was the one with a credit card in my hand. But I didn’t, I just left and went to Macy’s because the associates are nice there. I did call the store manager and lodge a complaint against her, I thought that better than causing a scene at the MU counter LOL.

    The blush looks gorgeous, and the compacts look nice too.
