There is a new pressed version of Guerlain Mététorites Perles. If you love the illuminating finish of the Guerlain perles but want a more travel friends version you will love the new Guerlain Mététorites Light Revealing Powder ($68 CAD/$62 US).
My shade is 2 Light. It is also available in 3 Medium and 4 Golden. The pressed versions are the perfect matches to their Mététorites Perles versions of corrective and enhancing shades.
The press info states that “Stardust technology transforms the invisible beam of rays into visible and soft focus perfecting light.” That may sound like a lot of hocus pocus but I swear there is some sort of magic going on here. The finish is otherworldly.
While I’ve always loved the effect of the balls I find that for daily use they contain a little too much shimmer. This new pressed version is more refined. The shimmer is almost imperceptible yet it gives the skin such a radiant glow. The texture of the powder is very finely milled and doesn’t give any coverage but rather a beautifully blurred, evened, and luminous finish. I am in LOVE. When it comes to setting powders I don’t often look for more coverage and I am more concerned with just setting my foundation with a beautiful finish. The Guerlain Mététorites Light Revealing Powder is perfect for this.
The packaging is very luxurious looking while still remaining fairly lightweight. The chrome finish mirrored compact secures with a magnetic closure and has a beautiful pattern engraved on the lid as well as the Guerlain name and logo.
I took a swatch photo but you can’t really see much other than I do believe you can see how it made the skin on my arm in the center looks more luminous. (You can see a sliver of the Perles de Blush on the right). This swatch was taken in natural light. You can see it isn’t as shimmery as the balls.
I do believe I may need a second one. One for home for my daily makeup application and one in my purse for touchups!
The Guerlain Mététorites Light Revealing Powder was released with the Guerlain Les Tendres Spring 2015 and thankfully will be permanent!
