Guerlain Liu Makeup Collection for Christmas 2012

Guerlain’s Christmas 2012 makeup collection was inspired by the brand’s fragrance Liu. It is  Olivier Echaudemaison’s  interpretation of the scent which was created in 1929 by Jacques Guerlain.

Liu is a  hymn to femininity and true love,which was inspired by  the heroine of Turandot, Puccini’s opera. The story is about the  young slave who chooses to commit suicide rather than reveal the name of her master with whom she is in love.  The scent symbolized the power of secrets.

This collection includes:

LIU, Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body and Hair £50.50 / €73

The notes are: luminous aldehydes, a sensual armful of roses and a caressing base of vanilla, iris and woody notes.

LIU, Eye And Lip Calligraphy Palette £54 / €68

This collectors item was inspired by the art of calligraphy and Asian beauty rituals. It includes two shades for the lips – carmine and blue-toned red,  three eye shadows with an iridescent powder texture – bronze, copper and white, and a  matte black powder liner that can be used wet or dry.

MÉTÉORITES PERLES DU DRAGON, Illuminating Powder – Pure Radiance £37.50 / €48
