One of the most anticipated item is the Golden Glimmer Powder which retails for $70USD. The design is unquestionably gorgeous!
Out of the entire collection, I only chose 3 items to swatch - the Golden Glimmer Powder and two Terracotta Blush Sun Shimmer Highlighters. I thought these were the 3 unique items that we haven't seen in the past.
Right off the bat, I went straight to the Golden Glimmer Powder. Its texture is simply divine. Despite the high price, I felt that there are a lot of product in the compact. It felt luxurious even from the first swatch. The Golden Glimmer Powder provides a smooth golden sheen on the skin. To me, it's more of a highlighter that will look beautiful on top of a blush or bronzer.
Sunny Pink and Spicy Coral ($41USD) are both liquid blushes that come in a slender tube. One small pump gets you a great amount of pigmentation as shown in the swatch. Sunny Pink is a peachy pink with gold shimmer. Spicy Coral is an orange with gold shimmer.
Both blushes are beautiful and can be sheered out. I am more drawn to Sunny Pink because I find Spicy Coral a tad too orange. Sunny Pink is the shade that is more universally flattering for all skin tones.
I think the color palette in this collection is so girly and pretty, just like the gorgeous flower in the background.
Overall, I like the shades in Guerlain's Sun In the City Collection. I'm not sure that they are entirely unique but they are quite pretty.
Bottom Line: Check out Sun In The City at your local Guerlain counter. I'm sure it's slowly making its way into other department stores. The Golden Glimmer Powder is limited edition so if you know you want it, I suggest placing an order right away. I did not purchase it because I typically do not use gold highlighters. Both liquid blushes are nice but I'm not sure about the wear time. On my hand, both wiped off pretty easily after 15-20 mins. I'm not sure if that's a good thing seeing how they didn't leave a single stain mark behind.
What are your picks from this collection? Are you snatching up any of these 3 items?
