Pure prettiness: Guerlain holiday 2015

Let's kick off the holiday season with some Guerlain gorgeousness!  I just hope this brief post make sense, as I'm completely doped up on cold medicine at the moment.  :(  Anyway, this year Guerlain decided to house their best-selling Météorites highlighter (or "ballz", as we affectionately call it at MUA) in a beautiful snow globe-esque dome.  While it's made of plastic, the snowy ombre effect, gold center engraved with wintry motifs and the delicate pattern encircling the middle elevate this piece to collectible status.

Inside is even more of a treat - a scattering of "snowflakes" (star-shaped bits) were added to the usual round particles.

The pattern on the inside of the box was another delightful design touch.

I couldn't resist the lipstick, which is adorned with the same pretty pattern.

These will look great in the Museum's holiday 2015/winter 2016 exhibition, so I'm pleased.  What do you think of Guerlain's holiday offerings?

I think they are gorgeous and expect them to perform as beautifully as they look.
