I didn’t shop much while in Singapore. Well, “not much” being relative but while at Changi airport, to take my mind off certain other things I was eyeing, I splurged on the new Guerlain Meteorites Perles in Teint Rose .
All I needed to know at the counter was “Is this the new packaging?” and once the SA said yes, I was off like a shot to the counter. At S$71 its not cheap but it was a tiny bit cheaper than the retail price of RM185 in Malaysia.
I opened it yesterday and to my surprise (and delight) the new tub is metal! Not metal covered cardboard (as they did before) but a nice light thin embossed metal case. None of that baroque looking gold edged cardboard thankyewverymuch! This is a sleek embossed brushed metal tin with plastic tub insert.
The cover is now literally like that of a flat tin cover instead of the high cardboard cap. I don’t know why but I have visions of Milo every time I open the cover 😛
