Guerlain has launched the Spring 2020 Makeup Collection that is breathtakingly beautiful and definitely giving me the spring vibes. Guerlain has always been one of the houses I look forward to for all their limited edition launches as well as new additions to the permanent range. Spring 2020 limited edition collection is all you and your skin would like in your spring mood.
The Cherry Blossom Spring Collection 2020 includes Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow – Light Revealing Pearls of Powder, Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick (refills), Rouge G Lipsticks No. 61, 62, Aqua Allegoria Flora Cherrysia, and Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil. I have three products from the collection which I am sharing more about in this article.
Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Case Cherry Blossom is a customizable lipstick case design with cherry blossom. The Rouge G lipsticks have matte-finish shades that have a blend of black seed oil and intense pigments for a satin formula with the perfect balance between hydration and vibrant colour.
The bullet’s ergonomic design allows ultra-precise application for a flawless, lip-enhancing result. The Rouge G Customizable Lipstick Case gives a nice choice to choose the case that suits your style and with this limited-edition Cherry Blossom case, it will definitely be my case to carry with me – either with the shades launched for spring or just to have my favourite Rouge G shade in this customizable case.
Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil in limited edition cherry blossom packaging is available in 50ml. This oil has been a regular in my skincare routine for over 5 years and still my favourite. I have shared many times about this oil on this blog as well as my Instagram. Linking my detailed post here, this oil is a must-try and must-have – never breaks me out, very lightweight, absorbs quickly, keeps my skin look youthful and radiant. I use this oil – few drops at a time – after my serum and before my moisturizer, it layers beautifully with other products in my routine. It also works amazingly when I add a few drops of this oil into my foundation to give a little extra radiance.
Guerlain Cherry Blossom Spring Collection 2020 is definitely something I can highly recommend you guys to check out – whether you are a fan and collection of Guerlain or if you are trying from the brand for the first time.
Charlotte Tilbury’s globally-adored, Iconic Pillow Talk makeup collection that is perfect for a dreamy, romantic makeup look that can be dialled up or dialled down for every mood, every moment and everyone has new additions to it. In the magical world of Pillow Talk, you are sure to fall in love with the iconic nude-pink shade that’s on everyone’s lips, eyes and now faces – means there are new shimmering, eyeshadow palettes, rosy, glow-giving blush hues, pout-perfecting lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses and more. I am sure you must be super excited to know more about the launches – I am equally excited too. Please note I am sharing the original Pillow Talk products along with the new launches for comparison and description of all shades that now make it a DREAMY Pillow Talk Collection.
I am going to divide this post into three parts – focusing on lips, face, and eyes. Starting with the lips, the new lip products in the Pillow Talk Collection are Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium, K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Pillow Talk Intense Deep, Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Intense, Collagen Lip Bath in Pillow Talk.
Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium is a warm berry pink lipstick shade in a long-lasting, hydrating, pigmented, and moisturizing formula. The lipstick glides on the lips while keeping the lips comfortable during the wear.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Pillow Talk Intense Deep is a berry rose shade that gives a luminous, full-bodied pout that captures and reflects light. The formula glides on the lips easily and also conditions the lips.
The Original Pillow Talk Lipstick is the nude pink matte revolution lipstick which is universally-loved, best-selling lipstick launched to give all women what Charlotte Tilbury calls ‘the most beautiful lips of your life’. The moisturizing matte formula nourishing, softening, and light-reflecting.
Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium (warm berry-pink) and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Intense (deep tawny-brown) is a waterproof lip liner that provides a long wear time (5-6 hours) with no smudging and transfer. I have been a fan of the original Pillow talk shade and still love it. The formula glides on smoothly for a seamless line, to resize and reshape the look of the lips for a fuller-looking pout. The original Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk is nude pink iconic lip liner launched to worldwide acclaim and has become a hero product in the beauty industry, sold 1 every 2 minutes worldwide.
Collagen Lip Bath in Pillow Talk is a nude-pink high-shine, sheer lip gloss. The lips are hydrated, defined, feel and look smooth, supple. The formula has a refreshing flavour and cool feeling on the lips.
Lip Lustre in shade Pillow Talk is a light-reflecting, nude-pink gloss which gives the lips a cushiony, velvet lustre finish. The formula is hydrating and comfortable on the lips, can be used alone or over other lip products.
Coming next to the new face products in the Pillow Talk Collection – Beauty Light Wand in shades Pillow Talk and Pillow Talk Medium, Cheek to Chic in shade Pillow Talk Intense.
Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk is a nude pink shade while shade Pillow Talk Medium is Nude peach-pink. If you have used the light wand from the brand before, you might know what I am talking about, it is a beautiful light reflecting product that looks so magically beautiful on the skin. These two new shades look beautiful – perfect additions to the Pillow Talk Dream.
Beauty Light Wand gives a high gloss highlighting effect on the skin which not only enhances luminosity but also provides magical coverage for a translucent, radiant-looking skin. It keeps the skin hydrated and smooth. The texture of the light wand is silky smooth and non-greasy.
Cheek to Chic in Pillow Talk Intense is a deep rosy-pink powder blush. The formula is beautiful, smooth, and finely milled – blends in easily into the skin. This deep rosy-pink powder blush adorns your cheeks with a sweeter hue of Pillow Talk and looks extra dreamy on deeper skin tones. The finish is a luminous complexion – the perfect and gorgeous glow.
Cheek to Chic in the original Pillow Talk shade is a two-toned pink and champagne powder blush which is the best-selling blush from the brand. This universally flattering blush adds an instant healthy sheen to the complexion for a gorgeous glow.
If you are not familiar with this blush and why there are two shades on one blush – that is the secret to a glowing, just-kissed blush de-coded into a two-step “SWISH & GLOW” ritual for a flawless-looking finish every time – means you have to first swish the brush on the outer circle and then dip in the middle – means blush + glow.
Finally moving on to the eyes – the new launches in the Pillow Talk Collection – Pillow Talk Eye Liner, Instant eye Palette in Pillow Talk (limited edition).
Pillow Talk Eye Liner is a smokey berry-brown liner for the eyes. It is very pigmented, blends easily, has a creamy matte texture. It can be used as waterline and eyeliner – it did not give me any irritation for my sensitive eyes and looks beautiful – this shade gives depth to my dark brown eyes.
Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk is a dreamy 12-shade palette including champagne & soft pink eyeshadows for 4 Pillow Talk eye glow looks. It is inspired by Charlotte Tilbury’s best-selling, globally-adored nude-pink shade that’s on everyone’s lips, this limited edition eyeshadow palette features four eye glow looks that can be dialled up or down for every occasion, from day to desk to date and beyond. The 12 magical shades from the dreamy world of Pillow Talk in a mix of super-soft, intense matte and metallic pearl finishes. The diamond Powder infuses a jewel-like light and clarity to eyes, creating a luminous, natural-looking glow. The matte shadows contain coated pigments with silicones for a silky, luxurious touch and emollient oils for optimized spreadability while the metallic pearl shades contain coated pigments for a soft, cushiony feel and Emollient Esters for comfortable-to-wear glam.

Nars has launched a limited edition customizable complexion enhancer called Tinted Glow Booster. The Tinted Glow Booster smooths skin’s appearance by visibly blurring imperfections and enhancing its natural overall glow. It is formulated with skin-tone coloured pearls to help brighten and illuminate skin for a naturally perfected, individual filtered look, the lightweight and layerable liquid can be worn alone, under foundation, or as natural illumination on the highpoints of the face.
The Tinted Glow Booster contains Nars exclusive Jojoba Complex Hydraglow complex which is a dynamic combination of Jojoba Elixir and Jojoba Gel, it provides immediate long-term hydration. Tinted Glow Booster adds an alluring glow and a soft-focus effect to skin while extending the wear of makeup for up to 16 hours.
The Tinted Glow Booster is available in four shades:
Kalvoya – light
Simos – medium
Tangsi – medium deep
Barbuda – deep
Apart from providing hydration, the tinted glow booster also provides a very natural golden glow – a customized blend of yellow and beige pigments provides a non-ashy, golden glow on all skin tones. The shimmering effect is very natural and gives a polished lustrous finish that is not overdone in any way – can be used everyday alone or mixed into your moisturizer or foundation or tinted moisturizer.
The imperfects on the skin are blurred, skin appears smooth and looks radiant. The finish is dewy luminous skin. From the swatches, as you can see, it blends beautifully and both the medium and medium/dark shades work for my skin for a very natural look while the dark shade I can use on top of my bronzer or even as a bronzer or eyeshadow too.
