You know Christmas is upon us when you see gorgeous items like this pop up in promotional images and eventually, at counters.
Tell me your heart didn’t stop a beat, when you spotted that beautiful gold on black lid. In terms of packaging, my eye was set on the Guerlain Perles du Dragon Meteorites the moment I knew of its existence. Hello! Black enamelled tin and gold lid inlay? Just take my money already, Guerlain! Take it all! 😛
Guerlain’s Christmas 2012 takes on the Orient with their Liu collection. Liu is one of the fragrances in the Guerlain line up, and is an Asian heroine in Puccini’s opera, Turandot. What you can expect is lots of reds and golds which is very Oriental (read: Chinese. Chinese love red and gold because its auspicious and prosperous. I love red and gold LOL! 😛 ), and at the same time, very fitting of Christmas as they are very festive colours.
I only have the Perles du Dragon to show you for now, but I also have my eye on the Liu Calligraphy Eye and Lip palette and when I get my grubby paws on that one, I’ll tell you about it 😉 So onward and unleash the Dragons!
