I had a nightmare yesterday. My trial lecture had just been a test run and now I had to get up in a huge auditorium in front of a committee of 23, and they would have the final say on whether I got to keep my grading or not. Thankfully I woke up before having to go through that, because if I had thought the trial lecture had felt like a trial in the days before, this was worse.
So I had to get up and look at pretty things while having my morning cup of tea, and I started with something I promised to show you a long time ago. Sorry about that, but I’ve been a complete wreck. And if you’re the customer who came into the store as I was having my breakdown, I’m so sorry you had to see that, and thank you for your kind words. It went very well in the end.
So! I had the pleasure of having a look at some new things for fall, amongst them most of the product samples for Guerlain’s fall collection. And as it’s Guerlain you know it is going to be a stunner. There are blushes, lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows and tinted balms that feel amazing to the touch.
The balms are lovely, the blushes fantastic! I hadn’t the heart to touch the eyeshadows, but you just know this is going to be good!
I had swatched some of these, but I wasn’t happy with them. Also, the camera and I couldn’t agree upon the white balance, so some of these don’t look as perfect as they should be. Consider this a taster for what’s to come. Oh, and ignore the La Prairie stuff. I took this at work, but on my own time.
I’m going to stop talking.
Are you all as excited as me?
