Best of 2019: Guerlain Goldenland Collection giveaway

Of all the limited edition holiday 2019 makeup collections, there is one that stands out as exceptional. It’s Guerlain’s Goldendland Collection, a sumptuous edited group of gold-toned makeup that creates a soft sheen of stunning warmth and light. Imagine enjoying a holiday dinner by candlelight and you get the idea of how this makeup looks on skin. It’s flattering and elegant.

I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Guerlain’s Creative Director of Makeup Olivier Echaudemaison many times and he told me how he approaches creating this seasonal collection. “I always look to golden tones because they flatter almost every single skin tone. A veil of gold makes everyone look more beautiful and radiant. So I look at how I can create a modern vision of gold makeup.”

For holiday 2019, Olivier pairs vibrant tones with burnished golds and light-infused textures. He pairs matte golds with metallics to create depth to the hues. And he taps Guerlain’s expertise with optic science to reflect and refract light to create a multi-dimensional glow to the complexion. There is actually a lot of science behind each product.

The star product is collector Palette Goldenland, a harmony of 10 eyeshadows that range from matte to metallic. Is it a makeup case, a compact minaudiere or simply a beautiful little clutch designed to be tucked into the palm of the hand? The gold metallic case looks as if it has been hand burnished like a custom jewellery piece.

Inside, the 10 eyeshadows are flattering and wearable: iridescent and reflective bronzes, pearly shimmer and smoky charcoal and warm gold. Apply dry for a wash of colour or wet for a more intense effect. And layer for a custom design – the colours were chosen to work together seamlessly.

Photographers know how to turn to dusk’s characteristically beautiful warm and delicate light as the sun goes down. Guerlain captures this light with its iconic Meteorites powder.

These handcrafted multicoloured pearls range from rose gold to copper to wine-like shades. Each and every bead brightens the skin to reveal a beautiful glow. This really is a remarkable product.

The finishing touch to every look is the perfect lip shade and this just may be the ideal winter hue. It’s Rouge G No. 94 Matte in a warm brown-wine shade that really is an updated neutral. The creamy formula offers a matte texture with hydrating and moisturizing ingredients.

Of course, much of the pleasure of a luxury lipstick is elegant packaging and Rouge G Collector Cases are little works of art.

These lipstick cases can be mixed and matched with different lipsticks to coordinate with your mood or fashion style. I particularly like this limited edition warm red studded case called “Merry Red”.

THE GIVEAWAY: I gave away this trio of my favourite Guerlain Goldenland items to one lucky reader. I gave away the Palette Goldenland, Meteorites Goldenland, Rouge G Matte Lipstick in No. 94 and a Merry Red Rouge G Collector Case. So beautiful.

    My mother sold Avon when I was growing up. She would give out sample lipstick to her customers. She would sometimes give me some of the samples to practice putting on makeup. These were not pretty, but I loved them the most because it was my first makeup. My tweeter handle: @007blond

    Hi Dave. I once bought a beautiful Dior lipstick. I was younger then and didn’t have much brand name items. I loved the rich gold case and I kept it forever. Thanks! @NandyPalmer

    The lost beautiful makeup item I ever bought was for my Mother and it was red lipstick which she had never worn before in her life.
