For Guerlain’s Holiday 2011 make-up collection Belle de Nuit, Creative Director Oliver Échaudemaison takes his inspiration from the iconic Vol De Nuit (meaning Night Flight) Fragrance. Vol De Nuit was a bold oriental scent comprised of woody,vanilla and powdery iris notes created as a tribute to the most famous women aviators of the 1920s and 1930s. And now Belle De Nuit evokes the changing shades of the night sky with dark and dramatic shades. Here’s what the collection includes:
LES OMBRES DE NUIT 4-COLOUR PALETTE ($59.00)
An iridescent texture of green, blue and grey pearlescent particles release luminous color with an extremely metallic finish and combine with an extra-matte black shadow that offers an incredibly comfortable finish for a precise, intense liner effect.
PARURE DE NUIT PRESSED POWDER & BLUSH ($67.00)
A lightweight, violet scented powder. The pale pink, white, deep pink and blue green colors are topped with an iridescent and translucent sheen give skin an instant glow. The lacquer case conceals a very soft goat-hair brush.
METEORITES PERLES DE NUIT ($56.00)
Météorites Perles de Nuit leaves the face glowing and radiant. Five perfectly smooth pearls correct, illuminate and even out the skin. It is composed of pink pearls to capture light, white to illuminate the complexion, gold to reflect light, orange to boost radiance and silver to add shimmer without whitening the skin.
VOL DE NUIT PERFUMED SHIMMER POWDER FOR FACE & BODY ($87.00)
This perfumed powder wraps the skin with a veil of iridescent shimmer while being deliciously fragranced by the notes that comprise Vol de Nuit: a green and woody composition, softened by vanilla and iris. The universal pale pink shade is accentuated with blue-green and silvery hues to leave the face, body and hair sparkling.
Guerlain’s Belle De Nuit collection will be available in October 2011 at select locations of Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. What do you think of this collection? Do you plan to get anything?
