Would you try Guerlain’s perfumed shimmer powder? (tell us & win)
One of the beauty products that tends to only be available on counters at holiday is perfumed shimmer powder. This is a fine iridescent powder for body and hair that is lightly perfumed and usually comes in an ornate bottle with an atomizer. It is ideal for creating a soft, shimmering glow to shoulders, décolletage, and arms for evening parties and dinners. And one of the best on the market is Guerlain’s Souffle D’Or de Shalimar Perfumed Iridescent Body and Hair Powder. It sells out in days in many countries it is that popular.
“As well as my face and hair, I apply this powder to the backs of my hands and wrists. This way, a subtle scent is exuded whenever I move my hands,” explains supermodel Natalia Vodianova. She helped design this year’s Shalimar powder. “I am a great romantic and the Shalimar legend that tells of the passionate love between Shah Jahan and his beloved wife Princess Mumtaz Mahal has always fascinated me. I wanted to revive the sumptuousness and riches of Imperial India through this special product.” Even better, a portion of the profits from the sale of the collection go to Natalia’s Naked Heart Foundation to benefit children with disabilities.
The Shalimar scent was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1925 and remains one of the bestselling perfumes of all time. It is composed of lemon, bergamot, jasmine May rose, Tonka bean, vanilla, iris, Peru balsam, and grey amber.
