Introducing the latest Gucci Beauty Launch: The Beauty Look Book

#GucciBeauty has some exciting new releases this season that I will be reviewing for you today! They have introduced new shades of their Luminous Matte Beauty Blush, as well as new Summer Lip Colors. Additionally, they have launched a new matte foundation called Eternite de Beaute, and I will also be taking a look at their Illuminateur de Beaute liquid highlighter. There’s a lot to cover in this roundup, so if you have been interested in any of these products, I hope you find this review helpful! 💄💋

Let’s start with the Blush de Beaute Luminous Matte Beauty Blush. These blushes have been a fan favorite since their release last year. Although they are a bit pricey, they perform exceptionally well. The powder formula blends into the skin beautifully, giving it a soft luminous yet matte glow. This season, they have introduced three new shades: True Pink, Soft Red, and Intense Plum. These shades are perfect for the summer months! I purchased mine from Sephora. Swipe for swatches and my review of the first round of shades that I own. Overall, I find these blushes to be easy to control in terms of pigment. They blend nicely and layer easily without looking heavy. The powdery finish is not overwhelming, as it blends into the skin perfectly. The lasting power is excellent as well. 💗💄

Next up is the Illuminateur de Beaute liquid highlighter. Currently, it is only available online at Gucci, Selfridges, and Harrods. As soon as I saw it on the Gucci website, I immediately ordered it. Although I already have numerous liquid highlighters, I have been quite pleased with this one. It is a multi-use highlighter, but for now, I have only used it on my cheekbones. When applied with a brush, it tends to disrupt my base makeup, but when dabbed and blended with my fingers, it gives me the most beautiful glow with the perfect amount of shimmer and pigment. It also dries down nicely. Overall, this highlighter is a winner for me! ✨

Moving on to the Eternite de Beaute Matte Foundation. This foundation has been working really well for me. I love its formula and coverage. It has a matte finish, but it doesn’t make my skin look dry. It blends nicely with a sponge and lasts all day. However, there are two downsides for me. Firstly, the shade selection for medium skin tones is limited. Secondly, the heavily scented formula may be off-putting for some people. The floral scent is quite strong. Fortunately, it didn’t irritate my skin. I wear Shade 305N, which is currently a good match for me. However, there is a noticeable gap between Shade 305N and the next shade, 310. On days when I am slightly darker or have a tan, I mix in the Supergoop! Glowscreen in Sunset to get my perfect match. This solution works for me, but if you are in between shades or prefer a lighter formula without the floral scent, I would recommend trying the Tom Ford Traceless Soft Matte Foundation or the Laura Mercier Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Foundation. 🌹

Lastly, let’s talk about the Summer Lipstick Shades! This summer, Gucci has added new shades to their Sheer, Satin, and Matte formulas. Some shades are exclusively available on the Gucci website, while others can be found at Sephora, Nordstrom, and other retailers. Although I didn’t try every shade, here are the ones listed as “summer shades” online:

– Sheer Lipstick: 221 Candace Rose, 505 Janet Rust, 214 Call It A Day, 208 They Met in Argentina
– Satin Lipstick: 115 Bertha Blossom, 219 Mary Mauve, 220 Suzanne Sunset, 208 They Met in Argentina
– Matte Lipstick: 217 Valeria Rose, 519 Pauline Red, 312 Frances Fire, 308 Lucy Dark Orange

I personally purchased Bertha Blossom (Satin), which is one of the most perfect baby pink cream lipsticks I have ever tried. It doesn’t have a white base or appear too pale. I highly recommend it! I also bought Candace Rose (Sheer), a beautiful sheer pink rose; Call It A Day (Sheer), a pretty mauve pink (also available at Sephora); and They Met in Argentina (Sheer), a stunning warm coral pink. I’m familiar with the Glow & Care Shine formula for the latter shade, but I couldn’t find it in my collection to compare. From what I can recall, this Sheer Lipstick formula appears a bit sheerer, while the Glow & Care formula is bolder. Lastly, I purchased Valeria Rose (Matte), one of the first matte lipsticks I’ve tried from Gucci, and I’m extremely impressed. It provides full, smooth coverage with just one swipe. It looks and feels expensive, and it lasts impressively long. Although I rarely wear matte lipsticks, I might explore more colors from Gucci based on the finish of this one. Swatches of some other Gucci lipsticks I own are included for reference. 💋💄

In conclusion, there’s a lot to love from Gucci’s recent launches. I’m still on the lookout for an eye palette combination that truly captivates me (so far, their palettes haven’t quite met my expectations). However, I am really enjoying the new blushes. As for the plum red shade, I’m still undecided due to its boldness. Every time I use a Gucci lipstick, I wonder why I don’t use them more often. Have you tried any of these new releases? What are your thoughts? Share your experience in the comments! ♥️✨

New Gucci Beauty Launches Blush Shades, Lipsticks and Illuminator

Gucci Beauty has several new launches this season I’m reviewing today! There are new shades of the Luminous Matte Beauty Blush ($49 each) and new Summer Lip Colors ($45 each). This year they also launched a new matte foundation called Eternite de Beaute ($69) which seems to have replaced their satin finish formula. Last I have a look at the Illuminateur de Beaute ($43) which is a liquid highlighter that I’ve been testing for a few weeks. Lots to cover in this roundup! If you’ve been interested in any of these I hope you find this roundup helpful!

Blush de Beaute Luminous Matte Beauty Blush

New Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush True Pink, Soft Red, Intense Plum

The Gucci Beauty Luminous Matte Blushes have been a favorite since they launched last year. I still think they are a little overpriced but they perform exceptionally well and the powder formula melts into the skin beautifully for a nice soft luminous yet matte glow.

There are three new shades this season: True Pink, Soft Red and Intense Plum. I think they’re really fun for summer! I ordered mine from Sephora. I swatched and reviewed the first round of shades here. All three new ones and the ones I already own swatched below:

True Pink 07 is a pale baby pink. On it’s own this is a little too pale for my skin tone but it layers beautifully on top of other blushes or bronzers for that brightening pink effect.

Soft Red 08 is not really red at all, but more of a bright coral. This gives the skin a healthy flushed glow.

Intense Plum 09 is a deep plum red. Red blushes usually scare me a little. They tend to pull very bright, very intense and very bold. I decided to try this one anyways and I think I can make it work layered with other shades.

Pigment is very easy to control with these blushes. They blend nicely and also layer easily without looking overdone or heavy. The powdery finish isn’t too powdery – if you’ve played with these you know it blends into the skin with absolute perfection. Lasting power is excellent on these.

Illuminateur de Beaute

Gucci Illuminateur de Beaute, Liquid Highlighter

The Liquid Highlighter seems to be only available online at Gucci, Selfridges and Harrods at the moment. As soon as it popped up online at Gucci I ordered it immediately. I have dozens of liquid highlighters at this point and don’t need another one but I’ve been really happy with this one. It’s a multi-use highlighter but so far I’ve only used it on the cheek bones. Applying with a brush tends to pull away my base but dabbing and blending with fingers gives the prettiest glow with the perfect amount of shimmer/pigment and a nice dry down. For me it’s a solid win.

Eternite de Beaute Matte Foundation

Gucci Foundation Eternite de Beaute 305N

The Eternite de Beaute Matte Foundation has been really good for me. I like the formula and coverage. It has a matte finish but doesn’t look dry. It blends nicely with a sponge and lasts all day. Two downsides for me are the shade selection for medium skin tones and scent. The heavily scented formula is a turn off for many of you (based on your messages). It’s floral and very strong. Luckily it did not irritate my skin. I wear Shade 305N and while it’s a good match now, there seems to be a big gap between 305N and the next shade 310. On days where I am a little darker/tan I’ve been mixing in the Supergoop! Glowscreen in Sunset to get my perfect match.

For me it works. But if you’re in between shades, don’t like thicker formulas or want something without the floral scent, but still want something matte I’d recommend the Tom Ford Traceless Soft Matte Foundation or the Laura Mercier Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Foundation.

Summer Lipstick Shades

Gucci Beauty Lipsticks

Gucci Beauty Lipsticks new summer shades

This summer Gucci added new shades of lipsticks in the Sheer, Satin and Matte formulas. Some of them appear to be only available at the Gucci website. There are a handful you can find at Sephora, Nordstrom, etc. I didn’t order every shade to try but here are the shades listed as “summer shades” online.

Sheer Lipstick
221 Candace Rose, 505 Janet Rust, 214 Call It A Day, 208 They Met in Argentina

Satin Lipstick
115 Bertha Blossom, 219 Mary Mauve, 220 Suzanne Sunset, 208 They Met in Argentina

Matte Lipstick
217 Valeria Rose, 519 Pauline Red, 312 Frances Fire, 308 Lucy Dark Orange

New shades I bought:

Bertha Blossom (Satin) is one of the most perfect baby pink cream lipsticks I’ve tried. For once I’ve found a baby pink rose shade that isn’t too white in the base or too pale. 100% recommend.

Candace Rose (sheer) is a beautiful sheer pink rose.

Call It A Day (sheer, also available at Sephora) is a pretty mauve pink. I also own this in the Glow & Care Shine formula and love it.

They Met in Argentina (sheer) is a stunning warm coral pink. I have this in the the Glow & Care Shine formula but couldn’t find it in my stash to compare. Off the top of my head this Sheer Lipstick formula pulls a little sheerer while the Glow & Care formula seems a bit bolder.

Valeria Rose (matte, also available at Sephora) is one of the first mattes I’ve tried from Gucci and I’m 10/10 impressed. It has full smooth coverage with one swipe. Looks and feels expensive and has impressive lasting power. I rarely wear mattes but based on the finish of this one I may check out one or two more colors.

I added swatches of some other Gucci lipsticks I have below:

Overall lots to love from Gucci these days. I’m still waiting for an eye palette combination I’ve fallen in love with to try (so far their palettes haven’t really been my cup of tea). For now I really love the new blushes. I’m still undecided about the plum red one for the color as it runs very bold. Every time I use a Gucci lipstick I wonder why I don’t use them all the time.

Have you tried the new launches? What did you think?
