Guerlain’s range of special Christmas products is called this year Collection Impériale And it’s a real beauty, girls. Basically it is a special edition of some of the classic products of the firm but with a very festive and luxurious packaging.
The mythical meteorite powders in their pressed edition are dressed in luxury for these holidays, with a silver compact and inlaid with Swarovski crystals. On other occasions the compact was rechargeable, this year unfortunately it is not.
My favorite product from this collection is Poudre Sublimatrice Impériale: a bottle with a pear applicator, in the old style, to apply the loose, pearly and violet-scented powders with the same grace that Hollywood actresses of the 40s had. They are powders designed to give a special shine to the body: cleavage, neck, arms… .. Surely it is one of those products that you never use because you cannot find the right moment, but it is so glamorous…
Another jewel of this collection is the special edition of the L 2 mascara. We remember that it is a mascara that contains two parts: a large brush and a smaller one. In this special edition, the small brush has a gold colored mask, to give a totally luxurious and festive touch to our Christmas looks.
And finally, a limited edition in two nude shades of Guerlain lipstick with that practical and precious container that includes a mirror.
I do not have exact prices for Guerlain Collection Imperiale products, but I know they are not cheap. The meteorite compact costs around € 200. If you decide to indulge yourself or want to put it in the letter to the Magi, remember that you can buy it at the Guerlain stands of El Corte Inglés.
