Guerlain Meteorites Perles D’Or for Guerlan Holiday 2010 Review, Swatches, Photos
Meteorites, one of the makeup world’s greatest joys. Complimentary shades of color that chase away imperfections, refine the face, correct, and illuminate with a sweep of your brush.
This year, Guerlain offers a selection of it’s famous Meteorites dressed up for the Holidays in a jewel, metal case with an embossed golden bee.
Let’s have a look!
Guerlain Meteorites Perles D’Or is a selection of four shades which include copper gold, white gold, pink, and violet. Each shade address a specific problem area on your face and acts to not only illuminate and highlight but also to brighten up skin and refine it.
I’ve been a fond fan of Guerlain Meteorites for too long to remember and it was probably one my very first high end purchases over 10 years ago. Each year the Holiday Collection garners special attention with the cult favorite Meteorites taking a special place on the makeup stage.
This year and last year Guerlain stopped housing the Meteorites in the traditional, sturdy cardboard box, instead embracing a new metal casing. Don’t get me wrong I loved the older packaging but the newer packaging definitely gives a more elegant feel to the makeup, keeps the product fresher, and just has a more overall gorgeous feel and look.
One of the most pleasant things about Meteorites is is the beautiful violet fragrance. It quite reminds me of my favorite chewing gum, Choward’s Scented Gum. The second most noticeable thing is the fabulous packaging. As I mentioned above the new tin design really gives the product a more elegant feel plus it’s considerably more sturdy so you won’t feel scared to use it. Pop the lid and inside several shades of Meteorites await you.
The shades of the of Meteorites work together to address several issues. The Coppery Gold and Iridescent White warm up dull complexions and give skin a more refined look. The Violet and Pink revive tired skin and brighten up shadowy areas. You don’t have to pick and choose which shades to use, simply swipe your brush across all the shades and proceed to dab gently onto your shadowy, dull areas and the product will go to work.
The change in your appearance isn’t a drastic one but you’ll notice a certain glow and illumination where at once there wasn’t one.
Meteorites aren’t an essential part of your makeup regime and they are a very luxurious indulgence but they are indeed one of the makeup world’s finer offerings.
If you’re a lover of gorgeous makeup, these will appeal and need no introduction.
