Guerlain cruel gardenia

I had been waiting for months after seeing a stock photo of Cruel Gardenia to come out!  It was love at first sight.  Everything about it was gorgeous.  The packaging, the product itself, and the way it looks on the skin. It reminded me of Estee Lauder's modern mercury, but  a little more subtle and pink.  I would describe it as a light pinkish silver.  It did not make my pores look huge like most metallics.  I was very surprised at that.  It did seem to make my pores look larger when swatched on my hands, but it is totally different on my face.  It was so pretty I bought a back up!  I do not do this at all with make up, so this was unusual.  It was on the pricey side, but it is worth it.  I highly recommend!! I will try to do a face of the day with it on tomorrow!

Tried to swatch the 2. Guerlain is on the right.
