The Gift of Guerlain

I honestly don’t even know where to start. How can I possibly explain the gratitude and feelings of awe at recieving such an amazing gift. Well, I guess the beginning is the best place. If you are Canadian or even a beauty twitter enthusiast you may know of the fantastic Dave Lackie. If not, Dave is an icon in the Canadian beauty industry, not only is he the editor-in-chief and founder of BEAUTY The Guide, a premier digital magazine. He is also the resident beauty expert on the show Cityline, where he discusses all the latest launches and trends. Cityline is watched by 2.1 million viewers every week. Dave has held numerous notable positions in beauty journalism and public relations and his opinions and talents are widely respected. So, you can imagine my excitement when I noticed that Dave had a twitter account, I immediately followed and as I was reading through his feed I noticed that he was regularily hosting amazing giveaways and I did not refrain from entering the first one I saw. After entering a few and assuming I would never win, I recieved an email saying that I had won an amazing set of Guerlain products. Shock does not cover how I felt. Every morning, I anxiously waited for the mail and a few days later this arrived.

Inside this little bundle of beauty were four amazing products; a Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lip Colour in 77 Geraldine a bright raspberry, a Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in 940 Nahema Smack, an orange with gold shimmer, an Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Quad in 503 Les Tendres and an eyebrow kit in 00 Universel. Can you believe how absolutely stunning these products are? I plan to review each of these products individually so I will not go into any further detail but I wanted to share how absolutely stunning everything is.

I can not express how grateful I am for recieving such an amazing package and I want to repeat my thanks to Dave Lackie. I am not at all trying to brag I just wanted to share this with my readers.

Have you tried anything from Guerlain? What have you tried?
