Priced at 54 pounds in the UK (about 112 USD), it is not cheap. But since I had enough Boots advantage points and I really liked the look of this necklace, I decided to use my points on this after it was launched in Boots on November 6th. (It was launched in some department stores earlier.) So I didn’t spend any money on this.
(I will write another post later on to explain to my readers outside the UK how the popular and uniquely generous Boots Advantage Point system works.)
Here, Dior’s seasonal limited-edition items are usually priced at 35 pounds (about 73 USD). I suppose this one is pricier because of the Swarovski crystals used on the pendant (not on the “Dior” logo though).
The gloss comes in two choices, pink and beige. (Only the beige is available in the US.) I picked the prettier pink one.
As I mentioned in my initial report on the various Christmas 2007 collections, this pendant is larger than what I expected. The total length of the necklace is about 82 cm. It comes with a black draw-string pouch for storage and protection.
The lip gloss is what I call a “default” pink, a universally wearable pink with some shimmer that should suit most people.
Having said that, I will probably not use it, as it joins my permanent Dior collection…
