Festive season means gorgeous and luxurious highlighters which come in gold and silver packaging. I have selected 5 which, in my opinion, will make any girl happy, beauty present-wise.
1. BURBERRY Festive Silver Shimmer Illuminating Powder ($68 from Sephora)
A LE compact with a silver bow can be worn as a highlighter or an eye shadow.
Another silver packaging, also a LE variation of the cult product – Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer powder.
3.GUERLAIN Météorites Gold Pearl Light-Revealing Pearls of Powder
This list would be
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?
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.
Guerlain Souffle d’Or de Shalimar ($98) Perfumed Iridescent Powder for Hair & Body. Fine shimmery gold powder for body and hair, subtly perfumed with Shalimar Souffle de Parfum notes (Vanilla, Bergamot and Orange Blossom).
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.
L’Or Felt Eyeliner, Sparkling Gold ($34), gold
Guerlain Spring 2016, anyone? New meteorites, blush and eye shadows with positive message and spring-like shades and new colours of lipsticks and eye pencils.

Long Lasting Single Eyeshadow, $34
You can always count on Guerlain when it comes to luxury limited edition seasonal releases. Their Christmas 2015, Winter Fairy Tale, collection is not an exception.
Of course, there is a new version of the collectable Météorites Perle des Neiges ($80), which come in a beautiful festive packaging. There are even star shaped mateories! Beige to even out the skin tone, champagne to illuminate and golden for a subtle sun-kissed effect.
The other star product, in my opinion is the Ors et Merveilles Eyes and Blush Palette ($90) which contains wearable shades for the eyes and blushes to brighten up the complexion.
