Guerlain Fall 2016 collection info and first impressions

Hello my lovely readers, I’m back today with a post on one of my very favourite high-end brands Guerlain and its Fall 2016 collection that is already available in selected stores starting with the 1st of September. As per usual, Guerlain has brought very interesting additions to its extended make-up range and also a brand new perfume Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, Ma Robe sous Le Vent, Eau du Parfum intense.


I’ll start with the perfume, Guerlain perfumes are a cult classic and the appearance of a new one always creates a high expectancy, since the perfumes are one of the most renowned products from Guerlain. The launch of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, Ma Robe sous Le Vent was met with interest and quite a bit of controversy, since the lovers of the classic Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire perfumes claimed it was quite different and created for a younger, trendier audience.

I have tried it in the store and wore it several times and it is indeed different. The classic La Petite Robe Noire is more feminine, elegant and more mature. This perfume is slightly stronger, sweeter but also more masculine and younger-feeling. It is not bland, it is quite strong and by wearing it you will definitely be noticed.

The perfume’s top notes are a mix of cotton candy with fresh bergamot and fruity blueberries. Bulgarian rose is present in the heart of the perfume, over a the base of patchouli, white musk, sandalwood and vanilla. It is available in 30, 50 and 100ml (aprox. 680 ron).


The latest relases in the Guerlain make-up range are six new Guerlain 5-Colors Eyeshadow Palettes and two new shades of Kiss Kiss Lipstick. All the colours are very beautiful and easy to use due to their perfect compatibility with each other and for each skin tone and colour.

The shades are : 01 Rose Barbare, 02 Tonka Imperiale, 03 Coque d’Or, 04 l’Heure de Nuit, 05 Apres l’Ondee, 06 Bois des Indes.

I really love these neutral-nude eye shades, you know I prefer to wear hot, red lipsticks. The colours are pigmented, but not insanely so, they are very easy to use and blend and they complement each other perfectly. This is what I like best about them, the fact that you don’t have to be a make-up artist to achieve a flawless look, you only need great quality products.



The Kiss Kiss lipstick range is enriched with two new shades : the 500 Fall In Nude, perfect for a discrete day time look and the 520 Fall In Red, a good choice for a special occasion or a bold night time look (185 ron/37 euros).

It is an ultra black, water-resistant, no transfer eyeliner that lasts from day to night (for over 8 hours). With a thin, precise felt-tip brush, it is very easy to use and assures a precise, clear and definite application for both a discrete, day look to a bold, graphic night time look.


If you want to spoil yourself with a good base, you can also try the new and improved Guerlain Lingerie de peau foundation. It has an improved light, skin-fusion texture, that can’t be felt or seen, enhancing the skin in a natural, discrete way the entire day, for a better version of yourself.

It is clearly aimed for the normal to dry skin and has enough coverage to cover the small skin imperfections in a natural, discrete way, keeping the skin moisturized and comfortable all day long. It has 20 SPF and comes in 18 shades for all skin tones (240 ron/53 euros for 30 ml).


The Guerlain Multi-Perfecting Concealer can become your best ally against the dark circles. It is a 2-in-1 product that has both a hydrating and a blurring effect. Its formula promises to blur dark circles and imperfections while reducing the under-eye puffiness, erasing the  imperfections and hydrating the dry skin areas (150 ron/34 euros for 12ml).



As per usual Guerlain has launched new and interesting products and I’m sure that some of them will become cult products for Guerlain in the near future. I am really fancying the Fall into Red lipstick, together with  the Guerlain 5-Colors Eyeshadow Palettes in 03 Coque D’Or and 06 Bois des Indes. If you are interested in any of the new products in the Guerlain Fall 2016 collection, go and check it out in the stores! You can find Guerlain in selected perfumeries and stores such as Douglas, Marionnaud, Sephora, Kendra and Debenhams beauty. Until next time,   Love, M
