If there's one thing I find hard to resist, it's luxurious and gorgeous packaging. It's the craftsmanship and the effort a company has put in to make their products more appealing and makes all the money worth it. Don't you just hate paying for something that isn't really cheap at all yet the packaging is really tacky? Yes, Shu Uemura and NARS, I'm talking to both of you! NARS, your rubber casing attracts a lot of dirt and gets sticky and eeewie overtime. Shu, your blush compacts - the clear ones - are so flimsy and how they break on their own beats me! Guerlain, on the other hand, did not disappoint me at all. :)
The indescribably drop-dead gorgeous blush! I don't know how I would be able to use such lovely creature, erm, blush. I like how luxurious and immaculate it looks. Gold metal casing that will make you feel like you're part of the British monarchy and should be living in Buckingham Palace. Haha!
Guerlain Blush 4 Eclat in 05 Rose Plein Vent
The Kiss Kiss Baby Nourishing Lip Balm has this silver packaging that is less luxurious than the blush but still "royal" and vintage.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Baby in 262 Cherry Summer (Also smells luxurious but my nose hates such scents. Maybe I'm not born to be royal after all. If being associated with such scent is what it means to be royal, then I'd rather be a peasant. Haha!)
Anyway, I got both on sale at Rustan's. All Guerlain products are on 20% off so drag yourself to Guerlain counters at Rustan's while you still can! I got the blush for only Php1960 from Php2450 and the lippy for only Php1344 from Php1680. Good deal, right? I was al;so told that if I get another lippy, they'll slash 50% off from that particular lippy but I chose not to get another one. I'm trying to be a good girl. :)
Anyway, I should probably house arrest myself so I will just stay home and not buy anything at all.
Happy Monday, super awesome peeps! :P
