Guerlain Fall Russian Beauty Colour Collection
The grand French brand Guerlain launched the Fall “Russian Beauty” Colour Collection inspired by Russian model, Natalia Vodianova, who is currently being a face of the line.
Creative Director of Guerlain, Olivier Échaudemaison, was inspired by Natalia’s Russian natural beauty and her native Moscow.
Some past memorable ad campaigns of the brand has been featured Natalia already. Guerlain’s PR Director, Nicole Matusow, says:
“The products and colors were definitely inspired by her face and look.”
“The deep, rich bohemian palatte of eggplant, burnt orange, and crimson are on trend and in for fall. Échaudemaison drew inspiration from the evocative fabric and embroideries like the rich tapestries and fabrics the princesses wore.”
Mutasow envisioned the landscape in combination with natural beauty of the women exposed to the elements:
“…the way the sun sets make your cheeks look” and “the atmosphere, the brisk wind of the Russian air when you’re walking along the river and the way your cheeks have that pink glow.”
In case you don’t know French, here is some help in the make up items translation – the Le 2 de Guerlain is a two-brush mascara in a fall-inspired Intense Plum for some serious lengthening and curling. The Ombre Éclat Four Shades Eye Shadow comes in a quad with shiny beige, bronze and two shades of brown for eyes like the autumn leaves.
The favorite product of Mutasow is the convenient “Volga Princess” Eyes and Lips Palette. The feminine and refined light pink and brown tints allow the brighter pink and mauve lip colors to stand out. And the compact comes with mini eye shadow and lip applicators and mirror.
For a deliciously smoothing effect the KissKiss Baby Nourishing Lip Balm (with SPF 10, always a plus) in an ice cube-looking mirrored lipstick casing contains wild mango butter and luffa oil. And from a Cristal Nude to brilliant Red Nude shade, your pout will be pretty and kissably attractive.
Guerlain “Russian Beauty” Fall Colour Collection is available starting in August at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Sephora and Bloomingdales stores.
