    I use their lipglosses. I wanted to try other things as well but then it was also out of order on Sephora website.

    Re: Guerlain anyone?

    I own so much Guerlain, and I love it all. Esp Terracotta Loose Powder Khol, Les Meteorites (in mythic and some old gold-version), Terracotta Bronzing Powder, Issima Silky Smooth Foundation...and the eyeshadows are so lovely. Shimmer-free (I hate shimmer), long-lasting, natural-looking. And I really love the packaging.

    Terracotta Loose Powder Khol is my favourite though

    My friend introduced me to the terracotta eye khols and oh my gosh!! The best one is Black from summer 2006. I am currently scouring ebay for one!!! They sparkle is amazing and GREAT for smokey look! And the packaging is fun!

    The best thing about Gerlain is the packaging, it's so beautiful. I have a prune eye khol which is very nice, it's so creamy and matte which I prefer.

    Re: Guerlain anyone?

    i use lipsticks, glosses, meteorites and loose powder eye kohl all of them are great. loose powder eye kohl is really close to original arabian eye kohls that my grandmother uses and more safe. my grandma tried it on for once and she quickly gave up her faithful and long in service ethnic eye kohl and started using guerlain. french royal family used to use guerlain too. in conclusion i can say as good as chanel but cheaper they have so many unique products with a famous jewelry designer designed package.

    Do you have to mix the powder eye kohl with anything? How well does it stay?

    I had just got my first Guerlain lippie and I'm in love. And this one lippie made me realize how... not so nice (to say the least) MAC lipsticks really are. I got that KissKiss Maxi Shine in Purple Shine. Such beautiful & sexy berry color, but the best is my lips keep SO moisturized the whole day and no lipstick does that for me, even most lip treatments and chapsticks. It has some great ingredients, this little wonder, I love it! I love the violet smell too.

    I can see now how much MAC could improve their formulas instead of caring too much about the colors only. Actually, now I blame MAC for my lack of interest in l/s. I have so many e/s and just 3 or 4 lippies. Now I want all of those Guerlain KissKiss, too bad they are so expensive.

    Capspock (or anyone else) can you take a picture of the KissKiss lip stuff? I'd like to see how shiny it is.

    Re: Guerlain anyone?

    The terracotta bronzers and kohls are amazing. The bronzers are neutral based, so they work fairly universally without giving the orange tone which you often get with bronzers. The kohls are just perfection. They took an old standard, and didn't change it, which is wonderful.

    My sister in law, who lives in Tehran, bought an entire box of the powder kohl liner... all in black. She's like obsessed with all their stuff, though in smaller quantities.

    I like meteorites, Divinora Liquid Liner, and KissKiss Lipstick in Rose Desir.
    Love's like a runway but which one do I love more?

    I can't live without Beige Strauss Kiss Kiss Lipstick. Only our Sephora carries it, they have very little Guerlain and the dept stores have nothing at all. I generally loathe frosts, but this is very....luminous.

    I love their terracotta bronzer. I have it in 01, which is the lightest shade of their moisturizing and long lasting bronzer.
    Love, love, love it. I wear it daily

    Re: Guerlain anyone?

    I took the plunge and bought a few things from them for which I have to say I am pleased with - I bought:

    Kiss Kiss lip lift (primer) - have to say the best lip primer I have tried!

    Teracotta Indian BronzePearly Sun powder LE (only wearable on occasions/evening)

    Teracotta Light sheer bronzing powder - has shimmer to it also, not as much as the above tho - gorgeous but some may not like how shimmery it is.

    and then cos I need a totally matte, light bronzer I popped across to E Lauder and bought their bronzer in soft matte... its perfect for me and Ive been reaching for this nearly every day.
