The Guerlain A Night at the Opera holiday 2014 makeup collection is yet another luxurious beauty line dedicated to all-things-glitzy, glam and opulent, something, which describes the holiday mood like nothing else. Besides bringing incredible gold and red shades for glamming up for Christmas night, the collection also pays homage to its iconic Coque d’Or perfume, which was first launched by Jacques Guerlain in 1937 as a tribute to the opera and to his friend Diaghilev, who was the founder of the Russian Ballet. From the timeless red lipstick and golden nail lacquers to the ideal eyeshadow and blush shades, as well as the perfect perfume fit for a night at the opera, the collection has it all for you to dress up for a memorable night out enjoying a piece of wonderful music and celebrating the holiday season in the most memorable way possible!
Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder ($95.00) (Limited Edition)
Inspired from the iconic Coque d’Or perfume, which was captured inside a sensual golden bottle with dark blue Baccarat crystal resembling the bow men used to wear on gala evenings and that decorated the ballerinas’ hair, this product is the focus of the entire collection. It features the same design as the Coque d’Or perfume, only instead of blue we see red accents. A single press of the red bulb releases the powder, covering your skin and hair in a golden shimmer, which strives to highlight the hair, face, shoulders and the décolleté. Using bergamot, rose, jasmine and patchouli, the loose powder will leave its captivating smell on you for the entire night.
Guerlain Petrouchka Palette for Eyes & Cheek ($95.00) (Limited Edition)
The next It product in the collection is this palette of eyeshadows and blush tones, which strive to illuminate the eyes and the face. There are five versatile eyeshadow hues available in the palette, all in the luxurious brown and gold tones, which are ideal for brightening up the eyes and making them look bigger. In addition, the palette brings four matte blushes, which can be either worn alone or layered together for a show-stopping effect.
