    If that's not what you meant with that question then....that's what I made it about lol
    Yep, that's what I meant. It's so hard to get product at all anymore. I was going to get that bronzing pan set with blush & highlighter & it SO already.

    It’s strange because they are still coming out with new products. It’s not like Gucci when they just disappeared altogether. But I have no idea what direction they’re headed.

    About year and a half ago they decided to close almost all of the counters, and keep only couple in the usa that were making profits. Makes me sad I love guerlain but i think it's too "european" for american market. Customer here is more into too faced, anastasia, kylie and all that shit ... sorry had to say it.

    I have very little Kylie but I do not use any of the other lines you listed. I prefer Guerlain so much! I got their new swirly Rose blush & it's very very pretty on. It has amazing glow to it as well.

    Unfortunately I think you’re right. I’m ready for all those brands to be out of style. Even Dior collaborated with Jeffree Star...

    I hope it’s not true. But I didn’t know about Lancôme. That makes me roll my eyes.

    Hey, it's there now!!! I got mine today & it's SO pretty on. The blush is subtle, but it's a wonderful palette.

    You guys, the bubble blushes are BEAUTIFUL on!!! They have the prettiest glow to them. They are more on the sheer side, but super pretty. I bought 2 Rose & 1 Peche.

    Also, Those Darphin Petal Cheek & Lip tints have become my very very very favorite new blush!!! They are so pretty & healthy looking on both the face & lips. And, they make my skin look so soft & glowy. I ordered 2 of each of the 3 shades.

    Those Darphin ones sound so interesting. Do the shades become different colors on this skin?? Do I need more than one??? Darphin has an awesome gwp right now

    Yes, they do change to different shades. The Rejuvenating Calendula is a beautiful soft peachy pink, Rose Petals is a soft/medium rose pink. They are truly beautiful on & make the skin look glowy & healthy. I am getting my order with the Blue smoothing Cornflower Petals one today, so I'll let you know. I'm guessing it's going to be that healthy slight plum shade. Their GWP are amazing!

    I just got & tried the smoothing Cornflower Petals. It is indeed more of a plum berry shade. Its really pretty on the lips too.

    Got Peche bubble blush today Beautiful slight pink coral on. I love these! And, I got the Universal Blush stick that was with the 3 highlighters & it's really pretty on. It is a sheer slightly pinker, slightly bronze Nars orgasm shade with a very pretty glow. Love it on too!

    This! Too Faced is such a far cry from what it was years ago to the point in which I can't support it anymore. Kylie and KKW beauty is such a travesty and it's a shame that gullible people keep throwing money at them despite how obviously fake they are. Jeffree Star should've stayed in 2009-2012 with the emo/rich club kid/MySpace era scene. Tarte revamped their image from being the bland boring neutral brand to being completely "fetch." Now the boring neutral brand title goes to Becca.
    Norvina is much more tame than the rest of the influencers/gurus/whatever out there but it still occasionally caters to a varied audience.
    The other problem is the Instagram/influencer culture in which even big name brands like Estee Lauder and Lancôme began to depend on because being a historic brand name is not enough and ofc it hurt their sales, so they needed a new approach. Not even having Angelina Jolie as the face for Mon Guerlain perfume is enough to boost sales in the US.

    At least there's still one Guerlain counter in JC Penney in my country-and possibly in the Caribbean-that still has decent sales and has managed to stay around. It helped that they hired a new young SA who genuinely loves the brand and she's always looking for creative ways to cater to everyone because the brand here only focuses on perfumes and trying to obtain makeup items from the brand is currently in the level of sending smoke signals to see if they can respond and ship a few items. The limited collections unfortunately take months to arrive, if at all because we didn't get last two year's winter collection and we had to repromote the winter Shalimar collection and more Mon Guerlain. Even the La Petite Robe Noir makeup collection wasn't enough to attract a new crowd (Those liquid lip stains were awful though, sorry). We didn't get this year's Spring collection either but the Summer one usually always arrives near mid August, so there's still a bit of hope because the bronzers here are still loved. It's a shame because I really love this brand despite everything and it has several top quality products. I try to buy what arrives in store just to support it, but lately I've had to rely online for my Guerlain purchases.
