Ahh Guerlain Meteorites. Such pretty, pretty balls. It’s no wonder there is such a cult following. They are such a thing of beauty. For Spring 2015 Guerlain has released the Guerlain Météorites Perles de Blush Angelic Radiance ($53 US/$69 CAD).
The packaging is cardboard and feature raised adorable angelic cherubs. The puff included is basic white.
The puff does a great job of picking up product.
The Sephora promo image is fairly colour accurate where I’ve found that the official stock images portray the Perles de Blush as much lighter than they truly are, as well as give the impression of bigger, and more plentiful perles with a more noticeable variation in size.
There are 3 shades of perles in the Météorites Perles de Blush:
- Fuchsia – revives the natural color of the cheeks.
- Iridescent champagne – illuminates the curve of the cheekbones.
- Rose petal pink – gently refreshes the complexion.
The final blended shade of all the perles is a gorgeous natural fresh pink flush with the subtlest of illuminating shimmer that will flatter any complexion.
I found it easy to pick up enough colour for my fair skin with a brush. You can also use the enclosed puff to press a larger amount of colour onto the apples of the cheeks and then blend out with a brush. When using a brush to pick up product just make sure to give it a tap before bringing it to your face because sometimes those sneaky little balls get stuck in your brush.
The Météorites Perles de Blush contains 13g/0.45oz of product. The standard Météorites Powder for the Face contains 0.88oz and retails for $60 meaning the blush version is quite a bit more pricey per ounce.
Here is a comparison photo with the Limited Edition Météorites Perles d’Étoile from Holiday 2014 which also contained 0.88oz.
Overall I am really loving the Perles de Blush. The shade is very flattering on my fair skin as well as long wearing on my dry complexion. The scent is quite prominent in these but I adore that yummy candied violet smell. These are definitely a big splurge. I do wish it wasn’t cardboard packaging but I think it fits with the cute pastel cherub them and I love me some pretty pastels.
