I do have to say, lately I just haven’t been keeping up with the new makeup releases.
Don’t get me wrong, when it comes to blogging and content creation, my first love will always be the beauty world, but considering that I spend the majority of my time at home, I just don’t need a million makeup items.
Now with it being summer time, there are a few items that I can’t get enough of. A little spritz of perfume, a good lip balm, and a bronzer for those days where I do go out and need some colour on my face (cause my face is always pale due to wearing sunscreen every day). Luckily, Guerlain sent over some of their newer items to try out and all three of them fit the bill.
Guerlain is one of my favourite luxury beauty brands and I really love the appreciate all they do for the world thanks to their commitment to the planet and the bees.
If you’re looking for some new summer beauty staples, then keep reading…
Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Vetiver Eau de Toilette
I love a good scent and Guerlain makes some gorgeous ones.
New for 2022 is the brand’s Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Vetiver Eau de Toilette (C$125 for 75 ml), which is a fresh fragrance with notes of fresh citrus and fruits.
This scent is perfect for summer since it’s nice and light and has notes of basil, fig accord, and neroli. I love their Aqua Allegoria fragrance line and this is now the third one in my collection. Out of the three I own, I would say this is my favourite since I find it to be on the sweeter citrus side and think it’s so perfect for the hot weather.
I also want to add that the bottles in this perfume collection are all stunning and look so beautiful displayed. They are made entirely and exclusively in France with 15 per cent recycled glass and you can actually refill them once the fragrance runs out.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Bee Glow Tint Balm
I love a good lip balm, even better if it has some colour to it and it’s designer.
The Guerlain Kiss Kiss Bee Glow Tint Balm (C$50) is a tinted lip balm that is infused with honey and made of 98 per cent naturally-derived ingredients. Available in six shades, this lip balm gives lips a glowing shine, subtle colour, and all-day hydration and care.
This is my second balm from the Kiss Kiss Bee line and aside from the gorgeous packaging, it’s also super nourishing on the lips and gives you a hint of colour. I got the colour Poppy Glow and although it’s a tad darker than what I would normally wear, since the colour is so sheer, I actually didn’t mind it and it left me with a gorgeous bee-stung blush effect (see what I did there?)
At $50 I do think these are very pricey for a lip balm, but honestly as someone who always has to have a lip balm with me at all times, it is nice to splurge and pick one up that is fancier and higher-end. I don’t mind spending the money if I know that I will use up with the product, which when it comes to lip care, I don’t have to worry about that.
Guerlain Terracotta Light Healthy Glow Bronzer
If you’re looking for a new bronzer this summer then I think you’ll love the Guerlain Terracotta Light Healthy Glow Bronzer (C$66).
This bronzer, which comes in six shades, is a blend of blush, bronzer, and highlight tones to give you a beautiful and radiant glow.
Open the compact to reveal a pressed powder which you can use to warm up your skin tone and give you a beautiful summer glow. The powder is formulated with 96 per cent naturally derived ingredients, including natural-origin Moroccan flower honey to moisturize and maintain skin’s hydration, and naturally-derived pigments and luminescent shimmer for a long-lasting soft blushing and naturally healthy glow.
The texture is soft and creamy and applies like a dream, giving you an natural, airbrushed finish. It’s an expensive bronzer at over $60, but the quality does not disappoint.
I really have been enjoying all three of these items since they are products that I do use often. Everyone needs a good summer scent and a lip balm, so I recommend checking them out next time you’re near a Guerlain counter or at Sephora!
