delayed reaction, part 2

guerlain formally opened its new counter at rustan's makati and launched its new summer makeup palette called terracotta. what's different about it is that they have two shade groups, one for blondes and one for brunettes (which can easily translate to mestizas and morenas, respectively). guerlain also has a little facial room where you can get a mini 15-minute facial for free! no purchase necessary! but the real star of guerlain is its new skin-care product called orchidée impériale exceptional complete care, a moisturizer for the face, eyes and neck (slather it all over your body if you can afford it!), which contains orchid extract (the new miracle ingredient?). it was introduced last month and sold at the introductory price of 19,988 pesos, and guess what, they're all sold out. there is now a waiting list for the new delivery and you can be sure a jar is now gonna cost over 20,000. and what cosmetics launch would be complete without a fashion show that represents the look and lifestyle of its current collection (clothes from rustan's, jewelry by tiffany & co., eyewear by montblanc, champagne by moët & chandon)...

natch expect guerlain to come up with astronomical prices for their youth potions.
now if only i can actually spare some moolah for a teeny tiny jar, or better yet, why can't i get Rustans to give me a free jar? *hint hint haha*
I'd give it a raving review for sure :)
