This entry features the collection information for Aura by Swarovski Bridal Collection for 2012 - I will be featuring the actual products shortly.  I have also previously featured the original Aura by Swarovski collection from 2011, links below if you are interested to read more.




Aura by Swarovski launches its Collection Mariage

Celebrating the magic of love and light, always at the heart of the brand’s inspiration

Launched in 2011, Aura by Swarovski’s fragrance and make-up jewel line is inspired by Swarovski’s exceptional know-how: the aura of light that the visionary craftsman created by faceting crystal. The floral scent of Aura by Swarovski translates the aura of crystal into the language of fragrance. Preciously nestled in a jeweled compact, the luminescent make-up illuminates women. A new alchemy of light, with the promise of a mysterious and fascinating power, a new dimension of femininity and emotion conveyed by the brand universe.

This year, Swarovski revisits the Aura line, creating the theme of wedding and light, inherent sources of inspiration for the crystal-maker who continues, year after year, to imagine jewels, diadems and decorative creations, cut in the purest of materials to illuminate this very special day. These evocations spark off wonderment and breathe new life into the Aura by Swarovski Collection Mariage (Bridal Collection), a 2012 limited edition.

A woman magnified with dazzling light:At the heart of a romantic, spring-like setting, a young woman gladly succumbs to the joy of being in love. She is stunning. In a lush garden, overflowing with blossoms and dappled with sunlight, she savors an intimate moment of freedom. With lace in her hair, a light white dress, her make-up jewel magnifying her skin, she voluptuously indulges in the scent of a radiant rose garden… echoing the floral and sparkling freshness of her fragrance.

A collection created from a new spring like fragrance to transport every woman into an aura of love. With its Collection Mariage, Aura by Swarovski proposes three fresh and romantic creations; an ephemeral collection which accompanies every woman in a very precious moment of their life and magnifies her with an incandescent aura. More seductive, more mysterious… she is simply dazzling.

The Collection:

  • Light Eau de Toilette

  • Perfuming Hair Mist

  • Crystal Gloss Make-up Jewel, Shimmering Pink


Set with a spectacular crystal and made of pure materials, the Collection Mariage inherits the futuristic design of the initial inspirational line. For this occasion, the metallic tube is tinged with a fresh, subtle pink; like the glass bottle, it is adorned with an exquisite “floral patterned lace veil”, at once romantic, joyful and fresh. A feeling of effervescence, evocative of Champagne bubbles.

Light Eau de Toilette

The olfactory signature of an everlasting memory

Sparkling floral notes, a luminous bottle enhanced by a veil of lace, tender springlike colors… codes that evoke the essence of marriage and its magic. Aura by Swarovski Light Eau de Toilette is faceted around 3 accords, imagined like essential steps to happiness:

  • The loving commitment is symbolized by lychee - signature of Aura by Swarovski fragrances - and tea leaves; these luminous notes blend perfectly in a dazzling fruity harmony.
  • The promise of an eternal bond is evoked by a delicate bouquet of peony and lotus offered to bring luck; a floral and soothing fusion.
  • Intense love is conveyed by a white musk accord, the ideal partner to adorn a woman with a luminous and dazzling aura.

Fragrance for a day, a season or eternity, a luminescent creation magnified by a luminous and sparkling floral bouquet.


Perfuming Hair Mist

The ultimate touch of light

This delicate mist swathes the hair with a sensual, luminous and floral perfumed halo. Its sparkling notes are progressively released with every movement, to exude a sensation of happiness through the day. Its fresh, airy, imperceptible texture coats hair with a shiny luster and a silky feel to the touch. The lovely metal spray enhanced by a lace pattern slips easily in a handbag to accompany you wherever you go.

A spray of perfuming mist … and the scent of a memorable day, lives on.

Crystal Gloss Make-Up Jewel, Shimmering Pink

An enchanting glow for everyday or for a special moment

To complement this line, Swarovski offers a sparkling lip gloss in limited edition.

Enriched with micronized Swarovski crystal powder and Crystal Shine® iridescent pearls, it illuminates lips with a pure, sparkling pink shine.  The soft texture is nestled in a delicate silver jewel decorated with floral motifs and topped by a unique majestic 16-millimeter crystal. The height of refinement, an irresistible “purse” of pale pink origami contains the precious makeup jewel. Just pull the ribbon and the box opens in a corolla to reveal this beautiful object…

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.
