Météorites Perles du Dragon is named for this Year of the Dragon and pays tribute to this mythical animal - a symbol of the emperor of China, whose primary source of power lay in a pearl that was synonymous with happiness, wisdom, and abundance. The harmony of six shades of pearls in an intense, iridescent monochrome palette is perfectly tailored to the holiday season. Like nighttime jewels, it cloaks the face in incredible radiance: pale pink and beige even out the complexion, white and gold illuminate, while plum and rosewood brighten areas of shadow and erase fatigue as the night goes on. Its famous metal case, also embossed in black, is stamped with a golden rosette on its lid and bears the Guerlain signature.
Bloggers with pale skin who try to photograph and show finishing powders are either eternal optimists or crazy. I may fall into the crazy lot, but I really wanted to show you the beautiful finish Perles du Dragon adds to the skin. I took my photos in full sun, hoping to get enough light to show the gorgeous pastel enhancement to my skin.
