The Guerlain Goldenland Holiday 2019 Collection is here and I’m digging in.  We’ve got the Goldenland Eyeshadow Palette, Terracotta Highlighter, Meteorites pearls and a Rouge G Lipstick.  I’m trying everything on, and swatching the shadows, all while rocking our Breezy Tee Brown Chocolate Satin Lined Beanie.

First up is the Goldenland Eyeshadow Palette.  There are 10 shadows that could be worn wet or dry.  This is a pretty, every day, eye palette.  There are a few gold shades, and for the most part, it’s a neutral eye palette.  They also gave us a very vibrant red shadow, if you want a pop of color.  The matte eyeshadow colors are very soft, and easy to blend out.  There is no fall out, and the color payoff is light and lovely, when dry.  When wet, all the colors are amped up a bit.  The shimmers get more of a foiled effect as well.  I was curious how this would show up on brown skin, because the brand photos didn’t do it justice, but I was pleasantly surprised by the pigmented eyeshadow in this palette.  This is a really nice eyeshadow palette for those of us in our 40s who like simple, easy, eye looks.

Then there is the Terracotta Goldenland Illuminating Powder, in a really interesting gold shade.  First, the imprint is beautiful, and mimics the covers of the collection.  This highlighter is incredibly pigmented.  I was able to pull it back, but I know now, a little goes a long way.  It wasn’t blinding, which is not my speed.  It gave me a beautiful, sophisticated glow on the high points of my face.  The gold shade wore very interesting on me, it almost pulls a little green, but it’s gorgeous.   AND THE SMELL IS DIVINE!!  I adore how this Terracotta highlighter smells.

I was probably most excited for the Goldenland Meteorites in this collection, and it didn’t disappoint.  I finally took the plunge with this product, because the colors looked like they’d suit brown skin, and I was right!  I just love the idea of these pearls, and how they’ve put a twist on the finishing powder.  The little reflects are so finely milled, that what you’re left with is the most beautiful and subtle all over glow.  I want to stress the subtlety, because that is what it is all about.  It never felt overwhelming, or looked like too much.  The final look was very sophisticated.  This might be my standout product of the collection.

I also grabbed 1 of the 3 new holiday Rouge G. Lipstick N96, in Bright In Black case .  The new case is stunning and I believe it is meant to look like snake skin.  The case also comes in red and gold.  There were also 3 new lipstick shades, and I got N96, a mauve/rose nude lippie.  It is creamy, pigmented, moisturizing and incredibly lightweight.  I just love a nude lipstick. The case is substantial, and heavy, with a double mirror, making it easy to apply your lippie on the go.

This was my first go at Guerlain’s eyeshadows, and the Meteorites, and I didn’t know how they’d perform on my brown skin, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.  I enjoyed the full Goldenland collection.
