If you've been following my blog for a while then you will know that I am a huge fan of Guerlain, and within the brand, the Meteorites powders. These are basically different coloured and sized powder balls that when swirled together with a brush and applied to your face, leave a gorgeous veil of powder on your skin. They're not exactly highlighters, nor they are blotting powders, but what I would call finishing powders. They give a lovely glow to your skin and the different coloured powder balls all have different purpose in correcting skin tone and imperfections. I am not an expert, so if you want to know more about them, please check out the official Guerlain website. However, I do love them very much and have managed to collect almost all of them over the past 2 years (I'm still missing the old style one coloured ones, but they are very hard to find and hardly ever pop up on eBay and when they do, they go for more than I'm willing to fork out). If you'd like to check out my collection of Meteorites, you can find it here.
This year Guerlain have revamped their Meteorites and came out with 3 new shades. Although to me Teint Rose actually looks a lot like the old Mythic shade, but it is perhaps a little lighter and more iridescent. They'd also changed the packaging, from cardboard to plastic with metallic finish which is much more sturdy and opens and closes so much more easily. It has a small lid and you can just place it on rather than having to push it on. If you've ever used Meteorites you'll know what I mean. I didn't mind the old cardboard packaging that much, but I do prefer the new one.
Teint Rose, Teint Beige, Teint DoreThe powders still have that wonderful signature violet scent that made me fall in love with Guerlain, and although I think there's a little less product (30 g instead of 33 g), they still last for ages. They are quite expensive at £34, but you do get all that product, so it's not too bad. And after all, it is Guerlain. The shades are Teint Rose which is most like the old Mythic shade, Teint Beige and Teint Dore which are two new shades. Although Teint Dore looks quite dark in the box, it is still very light and doesn't add much colour to your face, it is certainly not a bronzer even for very light skin. I leave you with some photos to drool over and will be back soon with more gorgeous pictures of my new Dior eyeshadow quints and Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks.
