One of my December purchases was this beautiful Gucci Autumn Fire Magnetic Color Eye Shadow Quad. I have one other quad that I purchased when they first launched last year reviewed here, and I like the quality and packaging of their products. I wanted to add another one to my collection since I have gravitated towards the smaller compact quads. Although I love my Urban Decay big bulky palettes, these smaller quads are easy to carry for touch-ups if needed while on the run.

Using all the new products that I received from Gucci Cosmetics with a few other products to compliment the look, I feel that this look came out very subtle. The colors aren't really that vibrant on me but I really like the the more subtle look!

The Gucci Pink Flamingo Eye Shadow Palette is a gorgeous blend of pinks, which includes two shimmers and two mattes. This palette is also very similar to the Guerlain Les Roses palette that I have in my collection, The colors are a very smooth velour but not that pigmented.

From the new Gucci Cosmetics collection I purchased the Gucci Wild Amarena Lip Lacquer. This is a very beautiful soft peachy coral lip lacquer that has quite the staying power. My definition of a lip lacquer is a product that is more pigmented than a lip gloss and has a heavier application in term of product weight. I practically applied one coat of this product on the top and bottom of my lips without rubbing them together.

Among the items I purchased from the new Gucci Cosmetics Line was the Gucci Cherry Nectar Blush. I chose this blush for no special reason. I have an array of corals, peaches and oranges in my collection already so I thought this would fall under the plums, wines and berries which I have a limited collection in my stash.

Gucci has just launched it's cosmetics line and the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! I was happy to purchase the Gucci Cosmetics Electric Crimson Lipstick. I always wondered what color Crimson was, it's a mixture between red and orange and slightly closer to orange I would say. It's almost the exact color on the website and actually, I thought it would look a lot lighter on me than it does.

Gucci celebrated the launch of its long-awaited make up line, Gucci Cosmetics, with a private cocktail party in honor of Charlotte Casiraghi. The event, hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, took place at The Carlyle hotel. During the evening, the new cosmetics line was unveiled. The entire collection is available online on the Gucci website and at select department stores.

I'm not a big perfume wearer so I don't buy them often, but when I received a sample of this perfume by Gucci, I decided to try it. The scent is very strong and powerful and reminded me of someone powerful like Michelle Obama, I bet she has this one in her collection. Anyway, I sprayed a little on my risks and rubbed it into my neck, that was about 10am, around 5pm I could still smell the scent and I couldn't believe it. As I said the scent is very powerful and if you're looking for something that wears all day, then this one should be in your collection.
