Thanks very much for the descriptions. In terms of a decision, I'm definitely leaning towards both. I know that I'd use each of them frequently enough to warrant it. BTW, I love your avatar. A beauty icon who is too often overlooked.

After reading some of the questions on Temptalia, I'm glad I don't have a MU blog. I don't think that I would have the patience.
LOL. I feel sorry for her when I read some of those comments. Perhaps because it's a more widely read blog or perhaps because it's been around long enough that her readers have a sense of ownership, but I find that she gets a lot more irritating comments (at least, they'd irritate me) than other blogs. Some people really get it, but it seems like every time she posts a review of Chanel, Guerlain or any other prestige brand, there are at least half a dozen comments (not from the same people) like "paying that much for makeup is insane".
Agreed that the collection looks absolutely elegant. I was hoping that I wouldn't be interested in the quad, but now I am. And I'm kicking myself that it's just different enough from the Guerlain one that I want both...
