For Guerlain’s Holiday 2011 make-up collection Belle de Nuit, Creative Director Oliver Échaudemaison takes his inspiration from the legendary Vol de Nuit (“Night Flight”) fragrance. Always one of my favorite and one of the most beautifully executed holiday collections, this season’s Guerlain Belle de Nuit Holiday Color Collection doesn’t disappoint.  Read on for more…

Vol de Nuit Perfumed Shimmer Powder for Face & Body

Whisper-light, sparkling pale pink powder is lightly fragranced by the notes that comprise Vol de Nuit: a green and woody composition, softened by vanilla and iris.  The green-blue art-deco glass bottle, with it’s glamorous atomizer, pays homage to Vol de Nuit, with graphics reminiscent of a propeller, conjuring up the image of a plane traveling across the starry depths.  Like diamonds scattered across your skin. I look forward to each year’s Shimmer Powder for the wow factor and am never disappointed. $87


Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder & Blush

Parure de Nuit is a lightly, violet scented skin-enhancer that is a perfect partner for night birds. The powder is imprinted with pale pink, white, deep pink and blue green colors–almost like an ostrich feather, which, when brushed on,  gives the face an instant glow. One of the reasons I love this line so much is the attention to detail. The slipcover for this compact is lined in a blue-green silk, matching back to the Vol de Nuit bottle.  $67


Météorites Perles de Nuit

Météorites are a perennial fixture in my makeup drawer–I’m never without a box.  Météorites Perles de Nuit consists of five perfectly smooth pearls that correct, illuminate and even out the skin. Pink pearls capture light, white illuminates the complexion, gold reflects light, orange boosts radiance and silver adds shimmer without whitening the skin.  $56


Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette

Guerlain has developed a new limited-edition color harmony, 10 Les Ombres de Nuit, made especially for night owls. An iridescent texture of green, blue and grey combined with an extra-matte black shadow that can be used as a liner, create smoky and seductive eyes that will last all night!  $59

Rouge Automatique

The thirties icon Rouge Automatique is back, with a casse that opens and closes at the flick of a hand.  In two new limited-edition shades for holiday, 169 Flirt d’un Jour (soft pink) and 170 Nuit d’Amour (gorgeous deep plum), Guerlain has created a second-skin texture allowing for long-lasting wear.  $35

The Guerlain Holiday Colour Collection, Belle de Nuit, is available at select locations of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom(including online) and Sephora.
