While Chanel is all about the pink and silver shades, Guerlain‘s main colours for Christmas are rich navy and gold, which is a beautiful combination. This collection is inspired by India, and the rich colours from the Indian culture. Let’s take a look at the products.

Terracotta Terra India Shimmering Bronzing Powder ($55)
Météorites Perles De Légende ($65) Light-Revealing Pearls Of Powder, 3 shades inspired by Indian pigments: pink to refresh, gold to illuminate, and a touch of blue to softly correct the complexion. A blue and gold design reflecting the colours of Indian jewel cases.

I can’t believe that this year the cult meteorites by Guerlian celebrate 30! This magical powder, the glow-giver for three decades already, was created by Dominique Szabo, Guerlain’s Creative Director of the time, back in 1987.
And I remember that every beauty lover had to have them, a lot of people actually collected all releases and would do anything to get yet another special edition compact. I do have a few myself (see here and here).
So which products are a part of the latest collection?
First of all, there are two KissKiss lipsticks in a limited edition packaging: Blossom Glow, a lively pink, and a more tender and glossy Pearly Pink.
A cute pink Meteorites The Brush which, according to the brand, is a redesigned brush with an improved, extremely practical design and works great for the signature iconic G application technique.
And what about the meteorites themselves that come in a compact and pressed variation?
