Liu Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body & Hair ($88.00) was to be the star of the Holiday 2012 Color Collection. I think the Liu Eye & Lip Calligraphy Palette is the superstar. Sorry, Liu, but you have limited usefulness.
Liu Perfumed Shimmer Powder reveals a light-as-air loose powder that enhances
the face, body, and hair (or possibly your clothing) with an iridescent golden veil. A mere press
of the bulb releases the powder, leaving a very light version of Liu’s mesmerizing aromas in its
wake: a composition of aldehydes, sensual roses, vanilla, iris, and
woody notes. Many will recognize Liu’s original bottle, with its elegant
black glass case and golden letters reminiscent of a Chinese tea caddy.
A black woven bulb has been added, transforming Guerlain's legendary
fragrance - hard to find now, and if you do, it will cost you dearly - into a desirable and feminine makeup accessory.
Once again, I'm attempting the impossible, trying to show you how Liu Perfumed Shimmer Powder looks on the skin - my skin (click on the photos to enlarge them). I don't want it in my hair, although that might be the best place for it. I'm sparkle-averse, so I have limited use of the new Liu.
You can find Guerlain's Liu Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body & Hair at all Guerlain counters or online. Nordstrom is a great online source.
