A voilette (not violette like the flower) is a light lace veil made to cover a woman's face in part or completely and it's often attached to a hat or in some cases a type of head band. Very elegant, it's always, more or less, in fashion and gives a woman a air of mystery when worn right.
Russian model Natalia Vidianova, the face or Guerlain, is not only wearing
the delicate lace on her face but she's covered by it.
Guerlain's La Voilette de Madame is one of the most anticipated collection of Fall 2013 and with good reason. Pictures have been circulating for a while now and looking at the ones I've selected I think you'll understand why. They are launching a new permanent collection of Écrin 2 Couleurs (eye shadow duos, height in all) and Le Stylo Yeux (eye crayons, five in all).
Along with these new regular offerings are the limited edition items. Three beautiful Lipstick Rouge G, three Gloss d'Enfer, one stunning La Laque Couture, oh and a blush...
Limited edition, Lipstick Rouge G, notice the beautiful lace detail.
860 Madame Batifole, bright fushsia, 861 Madame Flirte, pink red,
862 Madame Rêve, deep pink
Limited edition, Gloss d'Enfer
860 Madame Batifole, shimmery fuchsia, 861 Madame Flirte, shimmery red,
862 Madame Fascine, deep plum
Limited edition, La Laque Couleur
in Madame Batifole, intense fuchsia
Now this is to me, the star of the collection. Several makeup collections are coming out with face palettes but I do believe this one is the most stunning of them all. Notice the embossed lace detail. Beautiful! The compact opens to present to us these amazing colors and under can be found a lovely red bristles brush. It comes in a velvet pouch to keep it looking pristine. Needless to say that I know I'm not the only one who fell in love at first sight! This is now at the very top of my Beauty Envies list!
Limited edition, Guerlain 4-Couleurs Madame Rougit Blush
Raspberry, Pale Pink, Coral, Beige
Since these are all limited editions, it would be a good idea to make a stop at your local Guerlain counter when these come out in August. I have a feeling that they will sell out fast especially Madame Rougit Blush. Remember Diorskin Nude Coral Glow? This is the kind of collectible you don't want to pass on.
I have my eye on the Guerlain 4-Couleurs Madame Rougit Blush and La Laque Couleur in Madame Batifole, what about you?
