Beauty Explorer - Huge Haul!!


I have to share this huge (really huge) haul of makeup and skin care products from brands like Guerlain, Elizabeth Arden and Clarins at a special RSVP event that I attended thanks to my friend working in one of the brands. It was an amazing opportunity to closely have a look at the brands that I love and get a hand on some of their limited edition and off the purchase order products. These products were sold at a lovely discount and I literally picked up products like crazy and I had no idea of what I picked up until I took a picture. I regret for not buying any of the Guerlain foundations as I was so disoriented there but I managed to pick up some really nice stuff that I had an eye on, all the time.

I agree that all the products I got have been around for sometime but I picked up the freshest stocks they had. These products could be like a warehouse sale of a sort, but they were lovely and made a fine collection for blog posts. You can find them on the Guerlain counter at any given time and would be available until stocks last.
With this, I made my first ever purchase from the Guerlain brand and I cannot tell you how excited I am to share the products. Please read after the jump break to see what all I got.





This is how the packaging looked like when I got these babies. Nicely wrapped brand-wise products that were given to me in a plush bag which my Cookie loved a bit more than required.



A mish mash of all that was poured on my super soft blanket before getting pictured.



Opened in front of you is a tresoir I got from Guerlain and since I will not review these products as they are not new, I thought of making some small detailed posts here itself. You will find an ample of sites having swatches of the same. The only product not photographed is the Le 2 De Guerlain Volumizing Laque mascara that gives lacquered lashes and a lot of amazing volume (resembling Hourglass Film Noir mascara).



These are luxurious blushes available in quads with 2 highlighters above and two blush colors all that can be taken in one swipe. My little Clarins or Shiseido blush brush will pick up color individually but they are amazing to work in different combinations for day and night. Soleil Couchant is a lovely bright coral peach color with warm tones and looks lovely. Similar to is the Peach Afficianado blush from Givenchy minus the shimmer. Rose Plein Vent is an admixture of cool and neutral tones to give a whisper of rosey flush amazing for winters. I loved this textures more than the newer launches of Guerlain which look very dry on touch and really sheer. These are gems in form of blushers and retail for 2875 INR approx.



This illuminating Sun bronzer (INR 3900) is a beautiful bronzer that gives the most expensive and gorgeous sun kissed glow ever. I bought this for the shell like design and after the over spray gone, this is not too shimmery and not too matte either. A bronzer like this can warm up skin tones and looks amazing for guys when applied with a fatter fluffy brush (I am not joking...seen actors using it). The packaging it a bit user un-friendly but with a gorgeous bronzer like this I have no complaints.



Marilyn Monroe used a color from Guerlain called Diabolique. A bright red that gave those gorgeous puckered pout. They may have discontinued it but got a new one which resembles the same as the one in that iconic era. This is the Kiss Kiss Lipstick in Insolence De Rouge which is the most amazing red I always wanted and got it at last. It retails for INR 1750 and I swear if it not used within sometime it maybe up for a Giveaway although I do not make any lame promises.



I always wanted some Guerlain eyeshadows and there's nothing better than picking Rose Boise ( a muted pink pearl based lovely shadows couple with my uber favorite color in plum bronzer) and Velour D'Or (lovely smokey colors apt for holiday). There's that mascara over there which was unfortunately opened by someone (I am sure it was not used as they are very specific about it) and I will be using it for all the upcoming posts till it gets over. I have promised to treat  myself with the lovely new Guerlain Noir G mascara in future and do not care as it also comes with refills.



An opalescent duo chrome mother of pearl lip gloss in a brand I am sold to it. I have always got Chanel Levres Scintillante all my life and this one from Guerlain was irresistible. Crystal pearl stood out amongst an array of warm glosses on the counter and I had to pick it up for the opalescence it adds. These glosses are lovely and add a vibrant high shine to lips when used. It retails in their regular line for INR 1650.



This is the most amazing cream eyeshadow ever and this bronze color is a delight to use. Its the softest and glossiest shade ever and you will soon see it in the upcoming Holiday posts. Though its cool bronze color, its a shade that would amplify any look and go with absolutely any attire. They had a marsh green which I did not but and a lovely pink which wasn't being sold. With INR 2100 I would not recommend it to all.



I got this warm rosy pink famous Rouge G lipstick in Bridget for my mummy's b'day and I dont know whether I will get to swatch it. I am quite not buying any branded lipsticks for sometime as I have no one to use on except bridals where I prefer palettes. But this concept would change soon hopefully.



I got this Temptalia favorited limited edition lipstick in Rouge G in Gems for lovely Rashmi of Indyabeauty. She really rave this warm peachy shimmery color and there was one shouting to be picked up just for her.
I havent featured the mascaras somehow and I must mention that I also picked up Elizabeth Arden Double Density mascara which I may review soon.



I always wanted the Intervene Range from Arden and since it was available I picked it up pronto. Unfortunately all the night creams were sold out and I forgive myself to not spend more. The face wash is to die for, the serum is radiant and the oil free SPF 15 is a wonder in summers.



From the lovely Clarins I picked up some nice brushes and a tube of Clarins Instant Light complexion perfector in 01. These are the most amazing highlighters cum primers ever and Clarins is very famous for having these in the market.


Anyways this is all I got. As I end up the post, I feel I haven't bought any but its just a small feeling so that I don't feel very guilty. LOL. I can also that I gifted myself and had the right amount of money at the right time. Hope such sales come up again and I will notify to some of the nicest friends I have made in the blogging world. 

Please note that I bought all these products in Indian rupees and paid lesser than the amount I have mentioned. I have the full rights to withhold this information as it may not be relevant to all since the sale period is over.

Hope you loved the haul.....do enter the GIVEAWAY as its the last day......and finally one lucky person will end up getting Clarins and Kryolan eyeshadow brushes instead of a blusher and lipstick which I could not pick up.

Have glimpse.



Till then,

Ciao
