I owe this purchase to Christine. I thought and thought and thought about this. $170 is a lot to spend on a powder compact but it is absolutely worth every penny. The packaging is hefty and luxurious. The powder gives such a soft and lovely glow. I wore it on my wedding day.
Guerlain Wulong Meteorites Pressed Powder ($170.00 for 0.26 oz.) is really meant to be the creme de la creme of luxury compacts and powders. This holiday’s refillable compact is a black lacquered metal case that has a lot of heft–the whole compact clocks in at just under 5 oz. The top of the compact is raised with Guerlain’s signature rosette, and the interior of the rosette is made up of gold mother-of-pearl.
