How does one decide between Lancome La Rose Blush Poudrer (available at Nordstrom.com) and Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls? You must choose one, which do you choose?

Ok, I’ll let you off the hook.

You can have both.

The Internet is alive with the sound of Lancome Blush La Rose Poudrer at the moment. Everyone is simply gagging to own this stunning little floral shaped powder that acts to give your skin a touch of luminosity. If you’re a lover of Japanese makeup you’ve likely already been introduced to Les Merveilleuses de Laduree which has a similar style floral blush in it’s collection. Since signing on as Lancome’s Global Director, Lisa Eldridge has introduced many fun and unique products to Lancome’s lineup! Many of which seem to be heavily influenced by the Asian market. Blush La Rose Poudrer will likely become more of a collector’s piece versus a functional makeup product for many none the less this stunning little powder is sure to please makeup addicts and will prove an absolute must buy for many. Will you be indulging and do you prefer it over the new Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls?

It simply wouldn’t be a season change without the introduction of new, limited edition Meteorites! Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls arrive for Spring 2017 with a heavy emphasis on pink. Designed to capture light and deliver it to your face these gorgeous mini champagne pearls have a dominate pink base to also give your skin a delightful pink flush!

Now, how do I choose between these two?

I guess I need both 🙂

Have you purchased either?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I chose Lancome simply because I have nothing in my collection like it. It was hard to find though! Finally got it at Bloomingdales. Can’t wait to get it and see it in person. I know there is no mention of it having a fragrance but I secretly hope it has a faint rose smell.

  • Z

    Just saw Lisa Eldridge’s video on this the other day and ahh it’s so pretty!! But I think this is not for me due to the bulky packaging and it will just ended up sitting in the drawer 🙁

  • Aging Ophelia

    Well, I’ll probably grab neither although both are lovely. I have enough similar items to get me through and am more peach focused this year– actually I’d like the Lancôme rosy eye palette from the same collection. Not that I’d turn down the rose highlighter if gifted with it!

    I grabbed last weekend the meteorites. I wanted to buy the lancome one, but I had to buy the eyeshadow palette to be eligible to purchase the rose powder (and it’s not cheap already). It would have cost a lot more than the meteorite and I didn’t care for the eyeshadow palette at all. So I passed.

    I have the rose. It’s very pretty. Not the same quality or detailed execution of Ladurée, but much more affordable. Definitely worth displaying on your vanity, and leaves an ethereal glow on the skin, rather than the glitter of some highlighters.

      • Jes

        The only thing I find odd is that the brush they released with it has white bristles. The highlighter is so light and subtle, that I only use a dark bristled brush, or I won’t know how much of it I picked up.

        • Isabella Muse

          Oh! I love colored brushes but totally annoying when using them with a lighter highlighter!

  • Kathleen

    Competition must be fierce to create such a beautiful flower. I remember when makeup was not so stylish. I don’t really use this brand but I want this!

  • Brian

    I was just about to purchase the Lancome one until I read reviews that the highlighter is a silk flower that is simply dusted with over product. For $60, I expected the flower to actually be made of highlighter 🙁

    • Robin

      No way! I thought the whole flower was made of powder/highlighter!!! That’s such a disappointment and I agree, not worth the 60.00 price tag! ☹️

  • Maria

    I also saw it on you tube with Lisa Eldridge. . I love roses and it would be fine with me if it smelled like them too. It’s just stunning to look at!!!
    Can you let me know if the powder is inside the flower petals? or within the petals. And do the petals wear down as used? I have not looked for it at stores because I would be hooked in and I would buy it, never use and let it sit for my granddaughters-which I don’t have any :):))
    Guerlain? it’s Guerlain!!!! Rather spend on either of these than on the Too Faced Peach palette
    Thank you for posting these absolutely beautiful products

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t know Maria 🙂 a few comments mentioned the design/powder, you can read below for more info from people that actually have it. I don’t yet have it in my hands, so can’t really say how it works/etc….! Sorry :-/ Aw my pleasure! If/when I try it will def answer your questions but do read below as a few people commented about the design and that might answer questions you have 😀

    I haven’t seen the Lancome – so pretty…but have checked out Guerlain’s Spring Makeup – the pearls and also the pressed compact blush are both gorgeous. I am still thinking about it 🙂 I did buy the Blossom Glow lipstick – both lipsticks are lovely..I am a big Guerlain fan!

  • Elissa

    I got the Lancôme and I think it’s stunning! I don’t detect a scent. The highlight powder itself is such a pretty light whitish pink and it brightens up my fair skin. To me it was a must-have. I do want the guerlain as well but I want to see it in person first.

  • Keisha

    I purchased the Meteorites after discovering that the Lancome Rose highlighter doesn’t have very much product whatsoever. Gorgeous to look at, yes, but not really worth it in my opinion, unless you collect these sorts of things and don’t plan on actually using them much. Plus, I am in love with the scent that the Meteorites have 🙂
