I had to grab one for myself soon after it showed up in Nordstrom although it does not feel like holiday, yet.
I will talk about this beautiful operatic heroine "Liu" and the opera "Turandot" later on when I present a look post for you (after all, I am a classically trained singer.), but today I am just too excited to show this pretty palette to you. :)
Guerlain Liu Calligraphy Palette
Comes with protective pouch
It is quite big and hefty and has magnetic closure.
Another look at Liu Calligraphy
Guerlain suggests two different eye makeup looks, "Calligraphy" & "Arty"
(from the top)
Pale Shimmering Ivory
Warm Iridescent Gold
Matte Charcoal Grey (almost black) Eyeliner
Warm toned red (lip color)
Cool toned red (lip color)
This was taken under cooler lighting. :)
I will have to actually wear these colors and see to be sure, but the eyeshadow colors are beautifully iridescent and they go on velvety smooth.
I love the classic red lip colors in two different undertones as well.
Only thing I am not so crazy about is that the lip colors have the "classic Guerlain lipstick smell" which is not very appetizing. (Maybe it is a good thing. ;p)
Overall, I am very happy with this palette and I believe this collection has captured the image of one of the most visually stunning operas, "Turandot" and its sympathetic heroine "Liu".
I am adding lip swatches today.
They both feel and look amazing on.The colors hug my lips. Matte and velvety but not drying at all, which is perfect for red lip colors. :)
What do you think of this palette?
Would you be purchasing one of the Guerlain Liu Collection for this holiday?
Thanks for looking! :)
