Guerlain OrchidŽe ImpŽriale Black Eye and Lip Contour Cream

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Black Eye and Lip Contour Cream


After more than 15 years of research, the Orchidarium and Guerlain Research reveal Orchidée Impériale Black The Eye and Lip Contour Cream.

This global age-defying skincare range encapsulates the extraordinary properties of the Black Orchid*. Originally from Peru, this rare orchid increases its longevity by adapting to its environment. Like a talisman in the combat against time, the Black Orchid has given rise to the Blackimmune™ technology.

The Cream comes in a porcelain jar hand-crafted by Maison Bernardaud. Founded in Limoges in 1863, this prestigious family-owned company is the epitome of fine French porcelain. The Cream jar is now available in a refillable version, the ultimate expression of sustainable luxury.


Take a dab of cream with the small-tipped end of the applicator. Then, using its rounded part, apply to the undereye and lip contour areas.

The eye contour area
Smooth: Trace a "figure eight". To make the first loop, start applying at the inner corner of the eye, continue under the brow to the temple, then return – under the eye – to the starting point. Repeat for the other eye to complete the "figure eight".

To help smooth the eye contour area: Using the rounded end of the applicator, slowly and gradually apply firm pressure to each of the "acu-pressure points" for 5 seconds, then release pressure for another 5 seconds. 

The lip contour area
Smooth: Press firmly and smooth, sweeping along the natural lip contour line, first in one direction, then the other. Perform a similar maneuver, but replace the sweeping motion with gentle patting to plump up the lips.

To gently stimulate the skin: Apply pressure to a point between the Cupid's bow and the nose.
