Guerlain has recently added two new products to the brands Abeille Royale skincare line and I could not be happier. I have had products from the Abeille Royale range in my skincare routine for the last few years and they are my absolute staples. Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil is the only face oil I have been using for my combination skin and it never breaks me out, makes my skin supple, youthful, and radiant. And now that we are in fall, and soon will be in winter, this oil and the Double R Serum are saviours for my skin, keeping it moisturized and cared. If you want to read my detailed thoughts on Abeille Royale Youth Water Oil (here), Double R Serum (here), Abeille Royale Day and Night Cream (here).

Now coming to the newest addition to Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare line – Cleansing Oil and Fortifying Lotion. Guerlain Abeille Royale Cleansing Oil gently removes makeup from the face, eyes, and lips while helping get rid of the skin impurities and pollutant particles. The cleansing oil has an ultra-fine texture with fresh and airy honeyed scents that transform on contact with water into a milky emulsion that rinses off easily, without leaving a greasy or oily residue. I apply it directly on dry skin and massage gently, then I add some water which turns the oil into a milky emulsion. Then I prefer using a washcloth to remove it, even rinsing with warm water works nicely. The skin feels fresh, supple, and clean. The cleansing oil is gentle for my sensitive eye area and even lips. My skin felt comfortable, no dry skin feels. I did not experience any irritation or breakouts while using this cleansing oil. If it is the evening, I prefer using a second cleanser after this cleansing oil, just to make sure my face is clean before applying my nightly skincare products.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Fortifying Lotion with Royal Jelly is launched just in time for fall and winter when my skin needs extra care and nourishment. The Fortifying Lotion is a fresh aqueous light liquid lotion that has been the first step in my skincare routine after cleansing that helps prepare the skin for the next skincare products like the serum, moisturizer or even before massaging the skin. It rebalances the skin, hydrates it. The results are supple and radiant skin. It has the same fresh, airy honeyed scent as the Cleansing oil. “As the first essential step in the Abeille Royale ritual, the Fortifying Lotion combines microencapsulated Royal Jelly and BlackBee Repair technology to prepare and strengthen the skin.” Since I started using this lotion in my skincare routine, day and night – taking few drops on the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, pat on my skin, I feel my skin is smoother, hydrated, and radiant.

Guerlain’s Exclusive Royal Jelly is a very interesting ingredient in the Abeille Royale line. Royal Jelly is the most precious substance from the beehive, capable of transforming an ordinary bee into a queen with exceptional vitality. It is produced in very small quantities in Guerlain’s exclusive sourcing in France. The Royal Jelly is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. It helps with the skin’s ability to withstand the effects of stress and pollution.

Apart from these amazing new launches, I also had an opportunity to attend the virtual launch event with the brands International Makeup Artist and Skincare Expert Maxime Poulin. He shared some amazing tips and techniques, massage techniques – a few of them are shared in the video here.

Guerlain new launches, be it limited edition or additions to the permanent range, are something I always look forward to. The brand has a special place in my heart and in my vanity too, it is one of those brands which does not just have an exceptional and unique product but the legacy of the house goes way back when it stirred the society by having a decorated lipstick case which women could carry around with hesitation and without keeping it in the deep pockets of their bags. I am sharing few new launches from Guerlain, not particularly covering all products from new Mad Eyes Collection or Terracotta launches but two new Meteorites launches along with the new Mascara from Mad Eyes Collection all of which I have been using and loving since last few days including Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette, Guerlain Meteorites Liquid Pearls, Guerlain Mad Eyes Mascara, and Mini Terracotta Bronzing Powder.

Review of New 2020 Collection Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette, Meteorites Liquid Pearls, Mad Eyes Mascara, and Mini Terracotta Bronzing Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette is a multi-faceted highlighting palette enriched with pearl extract and pearlescent pigments. There are three illuminating shades in the palette that can be used alone on their own or can be mixed and matched based on your need. The formula uses an infusion of Japanese marine pearls to create a luminous complexion. There are endless ideas to use the three shades included in the palette. They work great as an eyeshadow or as an eyeshadow topper to intensify the effect of base shadow, or used as a blush especially the pinkish shade, or can be used as a highlighter not just on the high points of the face but also on the body like the centre of the collar bone or top of shoulders.

On the eyes, they brighten the whole look while as a blush it gives a light tint to colour to the cheeks. For my medium skin tone with warm undertones, Once applied, the shades look very natural and adjust a little with the skin tone and type. They blend nicely without looking as a separate layer of product on the skin. I prefer using a finger to apply it and with the heat of the skin, it melts beautifully on the skin. But it can be used with a brush too.

The three shades pink, gold, and amber work in harmony if used together and when used separately, they give a customized look, fresh or warmth. The texture of the powder is so smooth and creamy. It does not dry or irritates my problem skin or the problem areas. Also, there is a very subtle delicate violet scent which I love so much already, it dissipates quickly once the product is applied. Overall the palette has impressed me very much, it revives the complexion while giving a beautiful natural luminous complexion, skin looks healthy, smooth, and supple without emphasizing any problem areas.

Guerlain Meteorites Liquid Pearls is a first illuminator pen from the brand and is very innovative in terms of the technology behind it plus the packaging along with the applicator. The fresh gel texture is very unique and melts into the skin to brighten the facial contours with an iridescent veil. The formula is infused with Japanese Pearl extract deliver a two-step action – same for the Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette, which delivers a subtle instant glow on application and skincare benefits with each application.

I really like the applicator along with the formula, it is very refreshing while applying and the applicator dispenses just right amount on the tip in one go. Blending it is easy to and looks very natural once blended. Overall, the skin looks bright and fresh. It is available in three shades but I have swatched only one shade, I will update this post with swatches of rest of the shades soon. There is the same meteorites scent in this illuminator, a delicate violet scent. It does not dry or irritates my problem skin. It is hydrating, illuminating, and makes the complexion look smooth, luminous, and healthy at the same time. I use it directly on the high points of my face including the tops of cheeks, brow bone, cupid’s bow and then blend with fingertips.

Guerlain Mad Eyes Collection launched recently and is a fantastic collection of products for eyes, with pigmented formulas which are long-wear, sensorial textures enriched with active ingredients with conditioning effects. The whole Mad Eyes collection looks so stunning, I will share in a new post if I get to try more products from the collection but for now, sharing about the Mad Eyes Mascara which I am totally in love with. First of all, the packaging of the mascara is so beautiful and the wand looks really good. The formula is very pigmented and easily buildable. The fibre-brush is very soft and keeps the application very comfortable. With skincare benefits, the formula also conditions the lashes while it is on, is clump-free, and is creamy. A single layer of mascara gives me a pretty nice volume with long and thick lashes. A few more layers, for me personally, it gives me an effect of fake yet beautiful looking lashes. The mascara is resistant to tears and humidity. I did not experience any fall off during the time I had it own – which was basically the whole day. A single layer makes my lashes look so natural and beautiful, perfect for my everyday zoom or ms teams meetings.

Terracotta Bronzing Powder – Original and New Mini Version

I have shared about the Terracotta Bronzing Powder many times in the past but I have a new reason to mention it again, my favourite bronzing powder is now available in mini size. That means I can carry the mini version in my bag and if you have not tried the Terracotta bronzer yet, now you can try the mini version before getting the full size or like me, you can have the mini cute version in your bag.

Terracotta bronzing powder instantly gives a natural-looking warmth and glow to the skin which amazing longevity and without drying out the skin. It has the same scent as the original version, I can never stop saying that but the scent just takes the whole application process to the next levels, as an invitation to escape. The mini version is available in 3 shades, I have swatched 03 Natural Brunettes.

Overall, stunning launches from Guerlain, I am really impressed. Guerlain Beauty Products and Home Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s BayShoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia is a lemony citrus scent that evokes the delectable blood orange and the citrus groves of Sicily. It embodies the spirit of blood orange enhanced by the energizing freshness of bergamot and woody notes. The inspiration behind is the endless citrus groves of the Calabrian (South West Italy) summer. Under the Sicilian sun, picking a beautiful juicy orange and enjoying it in the shade of a tree, cooled by a refreshing breeze. Similarly, the playful and tangy effervescence of a blood orange is enhanced by the fresh and energizing coolness of mint.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

I can totally see myself enjoying the Calabrian sun while enjoying the juicy orange under the shade of a tree while a refreshing breeze cools me off. The scent really evokes the joyous moment of me enjoying the fresh, delightful, and beautiful summer. The composition is based on noted of red-orange, peppermint, tonka bean, pink pepper, and bergamot. The fragrance is very pleasing, very realistic and juicy. Orange with mint and peppery note which is very subtly spicy – I am really enjoying the scent. The scent stays close to the skin for me and longevity is pretty good. I love this composition and it Is a happy scent for sure.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

Aqua Allegoria Granada Salvia is a fruity citrus scent that represents a stroll through the warm gardens of Andalusia(Spain) while enjoying a crisp pomegranate. The pomegranate fruit essence is enhanced by the notes of sage (‘Salvia’ in Italian). ‘A delicious pomegranate accord made up of aqueous, green, and tart berry accents carried by fresh blackcurrant, cypress, lemon, and bergamot notes elegantly imbued with a twist of sage and rose over a white musk, moss, and patchouli background.’ The scent is a nice balance between being powdery and sweet. It is a little sweet as well a little musky.

Both the bottles of the Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia are adorned with golden mesh celebrate the iconic bee bottle. I am really enjoying these two new additions to the Aqua Allegoria range this summer 2020.
