I cautiously cracked open one of my bottles of Forever Gold this morning (I know I'm such a daredevil rebel aren't I?)! You wanna be just like me when you grow up don't you!?
Who'd have thought I'd actually try to use this stuff! It is the Holy Grail after all and when I purchased two bottles I was thinking that I'd take them out of my beauty vault on special occasions, stroke them lovingly, tell them how pretty they are, make empty promises to them about possibly using them in the near future and then tuck them safely back into my vault.
Surprise Surprise! I used a bottle. My god it felt absolutely decadent spraying my face and bosom with $78 Gold Shimmer! I take it this is how Paris Hilton feels (I picture her bathing in liquid gold for some reason or another as she just looks the type ya know?).
As I sat there trying to very gently depress the pump I suddenly got overwhelmingly daring and instead of just doing one tiny squirt I was doing about 4 or 5! It was madness I tell you! Absolute bloody madness! This is Guerlain Forever Gold for god's sake what was I thinking!? I was being awful brave this morning!
Well....I dunno what possessed me but damn I sure felt like 2 million bucks afterwards!
This stuff is magical (or crack I haven't decided which yet). Seriously it is. As well it should be for the insane price tag!
If I wanna be fair to myself I will say I expected crummy results when spraying this on my face. I didn't think it would spray evenly and I thought I'd have one half of my face dusted in gold and the other half looking strangely vacant. But, Guerlain somehow worked it's magic and one quick squirt of this distributes an even and beautiful layer of pure gold shimmer right across my entire face! I just went nuts and did a few pumps on my face and my neck and my chest and...well you get the idea (I was tempted to just hose my entire body down with this stuff but I fought the good fight
and I decided against using an entire bottle for that purpose! But don't think I wasn't tempted to do just that because I surely was!).
In all seriousness this stuff rocks in the way of application! It's such a snap to use! Squeeze once for an ultra sheer layer of shimmer on your face, shoulders, anywhere you want a bit of gold! And as I said earlier it distributes quite easily as long as you hold it a nice distance away from your face or where ever it is you're applying!
The shimmer is a very fine milled powder and it's not clumpy or gritty. It just simply is. Once you apply it's as if your skin is shining with gold from within. It doesn't lay on the skin in a way you can see where it begins so to speak. It becomes one with your look!
I refuse to give this a bad review but I do need to mention that it appears that it sort of blew off or just came off in the process of the day! I'm chalking it up to bitter cold windy New York weather and it's no fault of the product! 12 Hours in and it seems to somewhat diminished from my face but hey what powder, shimmer or shadow do you know that lasts 12 hours straight anyway!?
Have I mentioned how in lust I am with this stuff? I think I'm going to make room for it in my bed and snuggle next to it tonight!
This is seriously well worth the cash I shelled out for it. Well done Guerlain a very happy fan girl here!
If you haven't picked this up yet I have bad news as I believe it's virtually sold out everywhere but do try to locate a bottle of your very own from your local Sephora, Saks, or maybe E-bay or MUA.

working overtime to tame my horrible head of frizz and this is what you have:
I'm too sexy for my own blog. Not. Jesus my hair looks like it's been flushed around a few times! Sorry folks can't have slick locks all the time! I look everyone of my 30 years in these pictures! Phew cold weather sure ages a girl!
And for your enjoyment me working my "Ghetto Fabulous" jacket! I picked this little gem up on 34th Street last weekend. My mate Jen calls my taste in clothes "the fashion weird" but hey I'm loving this jacket! I can't help myself! I love tack *happy sigh*!
Dontcha love the hood? I'm strange. Just deal with it.
