Once in a while Sephora will organize beauty workshop for their members especially when any of the brand’s principal is in town. I couldn’t make it for Guerlain’s consumer event held on Saturday at Mandarin Oriental but I managed to RSVP two spots for Guerlain’s Special Christmas Event at Sephora KLCC last Sunday. Supposedly my friend were to go with me but she ended up in Pavilion and not KLCC. It’s no wonder she kept telling me she couldn’t find Sephora regardless my directions to her. It turns out we are not even talking about the same mall!
It was a quick beauty workshop with José Luis. It wasn’t a hands on event like the previous Make Up For Ever and Tarte workshop. I would prefer something that is not hands on so this one is perfect. José did five different look on five attendees and then we started exploring the collection. What I’m going to feature here is extracted from Guerlain website AND it’s all available at Sephora Malaysia stores 😀 . Yes, ALL OF IT. I don’t have the price so do go over to Sephora personally.
PETROUCHKA PALETTE Eye & Blush Palette – USD90
The refinement of an exceptional palette to slip into your evening bag. The case is adorned with a precious red fabric bow which can easily be transformed into a delightful bracelet or a hair tie.

I was eyeing on the meteorites (what else) to add into my collection eventhough I knew that the shade is too warm and shimmery for my skin tone and also the palette is just beautiful. I get paranoid if I don’t use / finishes my current palette so I’ve decided to skip the palette. I like the lipstick but not looking forward to add more red to my collection. Skipped that too. I only purchased COQUE D’OR Perfumed Shimmer Powder Body & Hair. It was an unexpected purchase. I was the first to arrive and I get to chat with Adrian (Guerlain Trainer) and he showed me how beautiful the shimmer powder is. I’ve always wanted a shimmer powder especially the one from last year collection. It was sold out by the time I get to the counter. I was half sold there and then. When José used it for his fifth look demo, I’m 100% sold. I used my Sephora 10% discount so I got the shimmer powder for slightly cheaper price.
Did any of the item from the collection intrigued you? I know a lot of people will either fall for the lipstick or meteorites. If you’re new to Guerlain, it’s always good to start with meteorites first!
