Guerlain Haul: Photos and (Late) Announcements!

I had been planning to post about this for quite a while now (by quite a while, I mean almost a month) but I never really got to it because school commenced and lots of real-life drama (that I would much rather not talk about, thank you) occurred. Still, just in case you’ve been planning to get something from Guerlain Cosmetics and you’re a bit tight on funds, this post might be of use to you!

First, let me share a photo of my much-awaited Guerlain haul that I finally got last December 27 (I told you it was almost a month ago already). I’m currently working on my review posts about these and I’ll have them up before the weekend ends!

I got just the Guerlain Météorites Perles in 02 Teint Beige and the Guerlain Météorites Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer! The rest were free samples c/o the lovely MUA at Guerlain Rustan’s The Beauty Source Makati.

Yep, you read that right—free Guerlain mascara (which I think is a full size if not a deluxe size sample) and powder foundation (which most definitely is a sample size)! I love that I end up friends with almost all the cosmetic boutiques I frequent. Yay for extra freebies, reservation privileges, and firsthand announcements of new products and exclusive sales!

Speaking of new products and exclusive sales, here are the (really) late announcements I wanted to tell you all about (hopefully they’ll still be of use since Guerlain isn’t too popular a brand here in the Philippines, anyway)…

20% off discount on the Guerlain Météorites Perles Illuminating Powder (all shades from Summer 2010: 01 Teint Rose, 02 Teint Beige, and 03 Teint Doré) and the Guerlain Les Ors Météorites Perles Light-Diffusing Primer at all Guerlain boutiques nationwide. Experience Guerlain’s signature Météorites magic for a lesser price while supplies last!

This means I got the Guerlain Météorites Perles Illuminating Powder for just Php2,400.00 instead of the regular Php3,000.00, and if I opted for the Guerlain Les Ors Météorites Perles Light-Diffusing Primer I could’ve gotten it for just Php2,800.00 (its regular price is Php3,500.00, which is exactly how much I paid for the Guerlain Météorites Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer).

They’re holding the sale to make way for the newly formulated Guerlain Météorites Pearls (02 Clair, 03 Medium, 04 Doré) that are part of the Guerlain Météorites Blossom Collection set for release this Spring 2014—maybe I’ll be able to let you know when they have those in stock! For now, though, here’s an announcement I got last January 9, 2014…

Guerlain Crazy Paris Holiday 2013 Collection

Items from the Guerlain Crazy Paris Holiday 2013 Collection are now available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source Makati and Shangri La!

…as always, the cosmetic market in the Philippines is as delayed as I am with publishing blog posts. Oh well, there’s a plus side to that—at least we still get to purchase limited edition makeup effortlessly when they’re all already out of stock in the US, right? 😆

Are you planning to drop by your local Guerlain boutique anytime soon? What are you thinking of getting? Let me know through the comment box below!

    • Me too! I used to not see the point in it considering how it’s so translucent and all, but the moment I tried it I just had to incorporate it to my daily makeup routine. 😆

      I was thinking of doing so and I was already supposed to buy, but I read not-so-nice reviews. They say the bristles are a bit scratchy..?

    • They’re amazing! Unfortunately, their effect on the face are hardly ever evident on photos. As the wearer, though, you’ll know the difference!

      Thanks for the nomination, BTW! I’m honored! x
