Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder Review and Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.

Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder

Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder ($95) is a limited edition loose shimmer powder that will be available with the Guerlain A Night at the Opera Collection for Holiday 2014. I’m actually a collector of Guerlain’s Holiday Shimmer Powders so I’m quite happy to add the Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder to my ever growing collection from years past.

This elegant piece comes housed in a golden bow like bottle featuring a bright red depressor that allows you to “mist” the shimmer powder onto your hair, face, and body.

Let’s take a look!

Guerlain Coque d’Or Shimmer Powder

Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder is the height of beautiful, luxurious, and collectible beauty. The finely milled powder gives a gorgeous golden shimmer that sparkles beautifully on a certain light. You can mist it onto your arms, decollete, hair, body, even your face should you like. It’s a scented powder and carries with it the fragrance of Guerlain’s Coque d’Or Perfume with notes of bergamot, rose, jasmine, and patchouli. I find the fragrance an easy to wear light floral fragrance with a hint of dark sultriness.

The light as air powder is the perfect center piece to complete your Holiday makeup look! Needless to say it is fairly costly and a high end purchase but for collector’s of Guerlain’s traditional Holiday shimmer powder releases I’m positive it’ll be a win!
