I've always known Guerlain as a famous old perfume brand from Paris. But wandering through Saks Fifth Avenue this summer, I was stopped by an intuitive salesperson who told me about Guerlain's brand new double-ended mascara, Le 2 Two Brush in a gold tube, for $35. I fell in love with the mascara right away - the larger brush applies a great coat of mascara to your upper lashes and lengthens them, but it also does not clump - at all. The bottom tiny brush is for lower lashes, and for refining all your lashes and making them pop. It looks like you've got falsies on - false lashes, that is. But the realest, most expensive ones.
Last weekend, I made another trip to Saks Beverly Hills, and headed straight for the Guerlain counter. There, I had a field day with the Kiss Kiss Extreme Lipstick ($29) in Chocolate Kiss and Rose Salsa, and the mosaic blush and eyeshadow duo that includes a wet eyeliner for $52. I even fell for the foundation. And the lipliners.
Needless to reiterate, I am now a Guerlain junkie. So when I learned that TheFind is doing a promotion with Saks were you can win a thousand dollar gift certificate at the new Guerlain spa at the Waldorf Astoria in NY on Park Avenue, I wanted to find out - what can you use that thousand for if you win?
