Good Things Come to Those Who Wait: Guerlain Cruel Gardenia Meteorites

My precious! Come to momma!

Yes, I have achieved the unachievable. Months after selling out all over Vancouver I found a Guerlain Cruel Gardenia Meteorites. And how cruel the search was! Laughing and mocking sales associates, taunting beauty bloggers (not really, but I was bitter), and two blistered feet later, bliss is mine. 
I had been checking the online beauty shop for The Bay for weeks but this product kept on appearing as sold out. One lazy afternoon I meandered over to the site for some virtual window shopping when VOILA! IN STOCK BABY! But how could this be?! It was mid-March and I had been told repeatedly that this was impossible. I literally sailed across the room, grabbed my wallet and hit PURCHASE. Yea, I make myself sick too sometimes with this talk.

Ever heard the saying "Beauty comes with a price?" Yea, well after provincial taxes the cost really was cruel...$84.00 worth of cruel. It is certainly worth the price based on the product quantity (this will take YEARS to finish) and quality (leaves all my other illuminators in the dust...sorry MAC MSF). Pictures honestly don't do this product justice. Regardless, I am putting myself on a no-buy until June. I am actually excited about this-it is surprisingly liberating. I have lost some of my excitement for new beauty products and my collection is over saturated with amazing products I need to rediscover and use up. 

This doesn't mean no more reviews. I have a folder saved to my computer labelled "swatches" that is FULL of pictures that are just waiting for review (YSL Glossy Stains for one). My career, life commitments and general blogging laziness have put some of these on the back burner, but now I can dive in.

that's how I felt about the Guerlain pressed meteorites that sold out before I could get it and the beautiful Tracy (@beauty reflections) helped me get my hands on it, I agree, it does hurt to pay but it's such beauty !!! I wonder if the new mac highlighters come even close to this? hmmm

It's always nice to finally get a product that you've had your eye on for a while. Very pretty color and the packing is pretty too!
