I know I’ve talked about my love for Guerlain’s Loose Powder Kohl’s before. I’m not sure how many I had at the time I last posted but I know for a fact my collection has expanded a wee bit. I think it’s fair to say that these applied “eastern style” (on both the upper and lower waterline) are perhaps my most beloved make up item. I don’t wear them every single day, but certainly several times a week and quite often I find myself thinking my look isn’t “complete” until I’ve whipped some on.
So thats the five I have. Left to right is Noir, Bleu, Oriental Metal, Secret Glow and Lagon. Words cannot express how displeasing I find it that the Secret Glow container isn’t transparent like the other pots. I don’t like it when things don’t match. Anyway, here’s some swatches in the same order, Noir, Bleu, Oriental Metal, Secret Glow and Lagon.
My favourites of them all are Noir which looks fabulous on and Oriental Metal which was a Ltd Edition but if you google you might find a few about.
I’ve raved about these in the past I know but they simply can’t be beaten for longevity. I can put this stuff on in the morning, wash my face at bedtime and look in the mirror and it’s still there! Now that’s fantastic you have to admit!
Applying the two dark colours can get a little messy so I always have a cotton bud to hand or even the Lord & Berry Eraser Pencil on hand to clean up fall out, but it’s so worth it. I’ll try and get some pictures of all of them on the eye over the next week or so and get those up too.
Next I need the long discontinued Pourpre and Oriental Bronze.
If you haven’t tried these yet then you must. At £20 a pop they are not cheap but my top tip is check ebay! I picked up the pale blue lagon on Ebay from a seller who clearly had no idea what it was and described it as a pretty blue eyeshadow in a fancy pot! It was less than a tenner new. 😉
