I lurve me some shimmer. As if we hadn’t already established that already! Remember last year when Guerlain released a gold, shimmering radiant powder with it’s Holiday Collection? Oh the love….I felt the shimmery, gorgeous golden love!
Now…as gorgeous as it was we have and had obstacles. It was $78 USD which for any diseased, cosmetic junkie was well worth it but honestly I do so admit that might have been a bit of an overkill price wise. If I had to do it all over again I’d still buy it anyway! The second obstacle is the fact that it’s long gone and probably never to be seen again unless you’re willing to swap a kidney on MUA or sell a heart on E-bay!
But…have no fear…the Muse is here to save the day!
So you want a budget version of Guerlain Gold Radiant Powder? Check it:
This be Bath & Body Works Limited Edition Radiant Powder and it’s just as awesome as Guerlain plus it’s heaps cheaper! Now Bath & Body Works Radiant Powder is not new by any means however it does have incredible new packaging as you can see above which just totally sells the product to me.
As I mentioned above it is available in three scents which are Vanilla Noir, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Japanese Cherry Blossom. The vanilla scents are my favorite as they each hold a certain warmth that I associate with the Holiday Season. Vanilla Noir is pretty much straight warm vanilla where as Vanilla Sugar has a subtle bite of spiciness and deeper warmth. Japanese Cherry Blossom is equally as gorgeous however the softer floral doesn’t give me as much as a festive feel as the other two scents, I’m sure I’ll feel more love for this during the Spring then right now in the Winter! I’m kinda sorta hopeful that Bath & Body Works might consider doing these again next year but in scents like Twisted Peppermint and maybe make it pink shimmering goodness?
Each powder is $24.50 USD and comes in a nice elegant box perfect for gift giving! At the moment they are offering a buy two get one free on these so you might want to head online or in store to nab a few for gifts or just to stock up for yourself as they are LE.
All in all I can’t say enough good things about these and believe they are well worth their tiny price tag for such a lovely little package of golden shimmer! They’ll look beautiful on your vanity plus they make rather awesome gifts in my humble opinion! If you’re still kicking yourself for missing out on Guerlain’s Holiday Collection 2007 you can stop and just head into Bath & Body Works! Treat yourself for some golden radiant powder for $24 bucks and call it a day! Totally Muse Approved for purchase and well worth checking out for yourself especially since they are on sale this week!
