I found out that for Summer 2010, Guerlain is updating their collection of Meteorites Perles loose pearls highlighter powder with new names, formulations and packaging. *whimper*
Its a good time for me to share my makeup must have which is the Guerlain Meteorites powder. You have been seeing me mention this one a lot and you might be wondering if its worth all the hype. After all, it costs a pretty penny and never goes on sale!
For me, it is worth every penny of the hype. I use this like a finishing powder. After I’m done putting on my foundation, whether powder or liquid, I swirl my fluffy Sonia Kashuk powder brush into my Guerlain Meteorites powder and dust it all over my face. There is no obvious difference, but if you look carefully, it does give your skin a luminous effect, diffusing fine lines, increasing luminosity and just making you glow. Best used when you have had a bad night.
You can also dust some powder with a large fluff brush under your eyes to help illuminate your under eye area and diffuse dark circles after applying concealer. I have never found a dupe in any other brand and I never want to because this is my little bit of luxury in the morning 🙂
I have the Meteorites in Mythic in the loose pearls and in Mythic Parfait in the Pressed Illuminating Powder. I just added Nacres de Mer Illuminating Powder to my collection. Its a limited edition item from Summer 2009 🙂 Do you want a review of this one even though its discontinued? Let me know and I’ll get down to it.
Guerlain does do a limited edition line of Meteorites perles in certain collections every year but I don’t collect these so I don’t buy them. I prefer to buy those that I know I’d use because these babies almost never ever finish.
I’ve since found out that for Summer 2010, Guerlain has revamped the packaging for the Guerlain Meteorites Perles, so it looks sleeker than ever. Dammit. Why can’t my loose pearls finish so I can replace the cardboard box with the new sleek metallic looking case?! Perhaps I just might anyway 😛
The new Guerlain Meteorites Perles will come in 3 colours :-
- Harmony 01 Teint Rose (which looks like Mythic) – overall reduce redness, evens out complexion, illuminates skin
- Harmony 02 Teint Beige (which looks like Beige Chic) – adds a warm glow to the skin
- Harmony 03 Teint Dore – Reduces the yellow hue and to brighten a golden complexion
Retails at RM185 per tub but never finishes. Worth every penny you save up for. I might just get Teint Rose – eeks! Time to get saving!
I’ve most recently had 2 national makeup artists for 2 major brands tell me my skin looked flawless and luminous and glowing when I met them. Too bad neither of them were from Guerlain because I don’t think they would have liked me attributing my glow to my Guerlain Meteorites instead of their products! *hugs my Guerlain Meteorites* 😀
So you know how I feel about Guerlain Meteorites Perles. Have you tried them or do you own them? Do you love them as much as I do or do you think they are just hype? Do you want a review of Nacres des Mers even though its discontinued? 🙂
Guerlain Meteorites Perles Summer 2010 is expected to be in stores in May 2010
