Guerlain Fall 2013 Voilette de Madame Collection

I'm still waiting for Guerlain PR to send me the press photos and press release for the Fall 2013 Voilette de Madame Collection. Meanwhile, the collection has arrived at the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas. So much for advance notice!

The collection offers beautiful new L’Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow duos (shown at the top of this feature); Eye Pencils; one Nail Lacquer shade; three new, limited-edition Lipstick Rouge G's; three Lip Gloss d'Enfer shades; and a dynamite, new and limited Guerlain 4-Colours Blush.

Take a look at the photos the boutique sent me. Then give Raquel Van de Venter a call at (702) 732-7008 to order. She sent me a few swatch photos. I have posted her Rouge G swatches below.


You can see more photos at Chic Profile. Tavia was more successful than I was in getting the press photos. I will be photographing and sharing photos when my order arrives.

Of course the red color is calling to me loudly! lol I'm going to enjoy Guerlain shopping. :)

btw I just had to refresh a Captcha that made me think my eyes were going lol nuts!

Voilette de Madame has recently released in parts of Europe and Asia and so swatches and reviews are just beginning to surface. Last week "The Driveller Kate" reviewed Madame Flirt and had some lovely pictures of it on her lips. Ever since then, I've been lusting after that slightly sheer, scrumptuous, strawberry pink Rouge G. And now you tell us it has arrived in Vegas! I really, really think I need Madame Flirte in my life :-) I've also heard that the Madame Rougit blush is a real standout. The swatches certainly are pretty. Oh! I can hardly wait! I'd call Vegas except I feel a strong loyalty to my sweet Guerlain gal. She is so good about notifying me and holding things for me, there is no way I could stray and so I'll wait. In the meantime, though, I'll be vicariously enjoying all the goodies you ordered.

I so want to know what Natalia V wears in the campaign picture. She looks so breathtaking to start with (why bother, right?) but I love the overall look. CG, do you know if press releases also explain the details on the model's makeup campaign picture?

Charleston Girl said...

Evelyn, I hate Captcha. Half the time, I can't read it. I wish there were an alternative offered by Blogger.

Charleston Girl said...

Eileen, I'm so excited. I should get them this week. I'm hoping for a continuance of sunny weather so I can get photos.

Charleston Girl said...

Claire, I never got the press release. I have been asking for it since spring, and I've been assured repeatedly that I'd be one of the first to see it, before the products were launched. Well... Since Guerlain is one of my favorite brands, I'm disappointed. It's not like the photos didn't exist. All the European blogs got them months ago.

So, I'm sorry. I can't tell you.

hi charleston girl!!! after looking at guerlain, everything else kinda looks well, blah! this collection was up on neiman marcus' website as of yesterday. to claire...i'm obsessed with natalia and want the same look she has (who doesn't)? according to my local rep. natalia is wearing two parisian eye duo, of course the new blush and, madame batifole lippie and matching gloss and nail. i do believe she has info. on the foundation, mascara, and eye pencil but, i didn't write that down. i also love that strawberry pink rouge g. knowing my local counter, they'll only send 1 or 2 blushes and they're probably sold out as i type this. but, that lippie maybe just the color i've been waiting for as i "shy" away from reds. i've read so much about this collection. good and some not so good. i really need to swatch and test on me. of course, thankgoodness for charleston girl to give us the best swatches and expert opinions!!! xxxxxxxxx and happy wednesday to all of you!! wendy.

Hi! I ordered (sight unseen) the Madame Rougit blush, the Madame Flirte blush and 2 of the eyeliners this weekend. I am very excited to see the silvery eyeliner whrn it arrives! -Sara

Clarisse said...

Hi Charlestongirl,
Here, we'll hear about that at the end of August as usual but I can't say I am that impatient since it will mean fall and winter...and since July we have been enjoying summer (= hot weather)after 9 months of rain, cold greyness and sad weather everywhere...
I've read they will be launching a fantastic new foundation though...wait and see:-)

Jo said...

Hi CG, could you tell me what colors correspond with each of the swatch photos. I really want that first one at the top of the swatches. Thanks

I snapped up many items from this collection at the Neiman Marcus in Bellevue,WA last evening. They had not yet received the eyeshadow I wanted (no. 07) but I got everything else I wanted. I bought the blush, 2 glosses, an eye pencil, a lip pencil, nail polish. My SA said she only received 3 of the blushes and I got one of them. You really have to have an SA who will put aside some things for you or you will miss out. Love this collection, the #860 gloss is gorgeous! Can't wait to play with my purchases. Hope everything arrives soon for all of you.

Charleston Girl said...

Jo,

The Rouge G shades - easy to match up with the swatch photo. :)

860 Madame Batifole – a vibrant fuchsia
861 Madame Flirte – a fruity red
863 Madame Fascine –a voluptuous pink

Oh my that blush! I think that I'll have to swoop this one up. I missed out on the previous collection, and I'm wondering how pigmented this one is in comparison to the last. I think it was called Serie Noire ?? I hope this one fairs as well as that last one did **sigh**

Eileen said...

Ooooo. . . Meredith!

You'll have to tell us what you think in this Friday's Forum. Pretty please! I'm holding off on ordering because I have a super great Guerlain gal who always put things aside for me and gives me a call as soon as things arrive--even before she's unpacked them :-) Great service like that deserves loyalty and so I'm patiently waiting for her call. She already knows I want all three Rouge G's, the Madame Rougit blush, and the duo in Two Lovely. I'll need to play with the rest, but I can easily see there are other goodies I'll be wanting to get. I'm such a glutton but I can't help it. This is such a sophisticated collection.

Claire said...

CG, harumph on Guerlain for not sending that press release!!

Wendy, thanks for the info on Natalia! I think you are right!
