I'm still thinking about the meteorites...

Also, should I wait for the spring collection balls?

The Dragon balls are a little more sparkly than the regular Teint Dore, so that might effect your decision. To my eye, the Spring balls look cooler than either of those, so you'd probably be better off getting one of your first two choices.

just thought I'd share a comparison between permanent meteorites found on this blog: http://delicatehummingbird.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/guerlain-meteorites-perles-in-02-teint.html i think I'm sticking to Teing beige 02

post #1417 of 3615

Very pretty palette indeed, I'll skip but yes very wearable and classy !

post #1418 of 3615

Thanks for the tip.  I'm not sure if every Murale carries Guerlain.  Mine doesn't.  It's the same with Holt Renfrew - mine doesn't carry Guerlain, but I know some stores do!

your best choice is teint beige. teint dore does not give enough of that illuminating effect, they are too plain 

post #1420 of 3615

Aww, don't say that Monsy. I just picked up Teint Dore in perles and compact. (To see which I preferred.) If they don't illuminate what effect do you feel they have?

post #1421 of 3615

it's just my opinion and i have very light skin that's why i like teint beige better

maybe you will like them, give them a try

I just saw the holiday lipsticks IRL. I am doomed. They are gorgeous. I want the red/burgundy but the $35 price tag is making me hesitate.

post #1423 of 3615

I went to a Guerlain counter on Saturday for an appointment to get my "makeup profile" and see which products would suit me.  It was so fun!  I'm new to the whole luxury makeup brands like Guerlain, so it was an interesting experience.   I was surprised that none of the face products (mostly the blush)  didn't cause breakouts because I'm quite sensitive to blushes.  The lady at the counter also put a few things from the holiday collection, and damn they look amazing.  D:  I'm going to buy the Dragon Balls (lmao) this week but I don't know if I should get the Wulong compact too.  I don't know, like I can take the risk to spend $58 on the meteorites but I don't have the heart to shell out $170 for one makeup item despite looking great on me.  What can I do?  Does anyone own the Wulong compact and can tell me the pros and cons?

post #1424 of 3615

Finally got my hands on the Turandot.

 

beaufitul. I have also Chanel's quad and think they are very different. I like the Turandot much more than Chanel.

Well, Temptalia has a review of it posted, but this probably isn't going to make your wallet any happier...

I've promised myself that I won't even let myself try it, just in case it looks fabulous. I know I can't afford it with everything else I want from the collection.

I hope one day I will get it as a preset..))

post #1427 of 3615

Geez Guerlain products are selling like hot cakes on the Sephora site right now. I've had two things go OOS on my list since this morning. All Meteorites are sold out including the primer.

Were you able to get the Meteorites and the compact before they sold out? I wanted to know what you thought of them.

post #1429 of 3615

I did and my order is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I'm excited to try them and see which one works best for me. Like you said I got the ballz and the compact. I hope they give me that ethereal, non-greasy glow I've been looking for.

 

btw Sephora now has the Liu Eye & Lip Calligraphy Palette in stock.

post #1430 of 3615
^^^They didn't ever have the Wulong compact as far as I know.
post #1431 of 3615
I don't know how to quote more than one person so thanks to everyone that answered my questions!

I'm going to go to my Nordies counter and have the lady try different balls on me to see which works best with my oily skin. I'll let you know what happens!

I would like to know also. I am SOOOOO tempted to bite the bullet and go on and get it, especially after reading T's review. I haven't found really any other detailed reviews. 

post #1433 of 3615

I tried the Wulong compact & didn't see any big difference, but then I only tried it on the back of my hand. It kind of looked like nothing. It may be different on the face. I wasn't all that impressed for $170

Is this the Turandot palette?  Love it!  I keep thinking the stores around here haven't gotten it in yet, but now I'm thinking maybe it's just soldout.  I saw the holiday display and Les Fauves was there.  Love Les Fauves.  I was trying to get it in the summer but other purchases got in the way.  Then I figured that it might look better in the summer.  But now I see that it is listed as part of the Fall Collection.  Why did I think this was part of a summer collection.  On my list it goes.  I may have to search for Turandot now.

I loved that one as well.  Just swatched it on my hand but it was lovely.  On my list it goes.

Yes its the Turandot. Neiman Marcus.com still has it. Free Shipping. It was sold out everywhere else I looked.

I don't normally wear eyeshadow but the Turandot palette looks nice enough. I want one because of the name though! For those who do not know, Turandot is the name of an opera by Puccini, and it is about a Chinese princess with three riddles for every suitor, and if the suitor cannot guess the answers then he is to be put to death as a revenge for her ancestor who was killed by a conquering prince. All have failed except one, and yet the cold princess still is reluctant to honor her word of marriage even after this prince solved her riddles, to give her a way out, he then gives her his own riddle. The play ends in both a tragic and beautiful way. Princess Turandot, I think, is a symbol of a Chinese woman's revolt.

This is why I want the palette.

Is it Limited Edition?

 

 

Also, has anyone tried the Parure de Lumiere? I want it but I have oily skin!

Thanks for sharing that story. I didn't know the source of the name. I see how it fits into the collection and makes the palette even more interesting.

I think I want to try some balls too. I will go for the dragon balls and I guess I'll also take the turandot palette, because it looks too pretty! The spring balls look very nice too. Maybe I'll get those as well if I like the dragon ones. Ow and I'm also looking forward to the green spring palette.

This was the reason I wanted it too. I grew up in a family of opera fans and I actually meant to pick up Liu Rouge Automatique as well. (Also, it's a gorgeous bright cherry red, which I love anyway.)
