GUERLAiN Meteorites Poudre de Perles
Illuminating Perfecting Pressed Powder
description from the Guerlain website :
Precious pearls of light are trapped inside an ultra-refined travel case, so you can enhance the skin’s natural radiance at any time, without shine. The ingenious Météorites pearls of light are compacted together in rows creating an exclusive Guerlain design. The correcting colour in the centre is surrounded by shades that illuminate the complexion on one side, and by shades that even out the complexion on the other. This alliance of subtly coloured matt and pearl shades corrects the complexion and enhances its natural radiance with just one sweep of the brush. Available in three shades to transform all complexions: 01 Mythic for instant radiance, 02 Rose Frais for freshness, and 03 Beige Lumineux creating a luminous matt effect.

I used to be a fan of matte makeup since it looks really clean, but then I realized later on that makeups with glowy finish suits me better, since it makes me look younger, fresher and more radiant.
Been on a crazy hunt for the best illuminating powder out there but I didnt find anything that matches the glow that Guerlain Meteorites give.
If you are not a fan of the Meteorites Pearls because of the visible specks of shimmer and the bulky packaging, you would surely love this, for a compact powder, the case would still be bulky compared to other compact powders out there, but the luminance and skin perfecting properties it provides will surely leave you wanting to purchase it.
All the 4 shades doesnt have that much difference actually, I cant even see the complexion correcting properties of the colored center, but it sure does make the skin look smoother and more radiant because of the light reflecting micro-shimmer it has.
My only beef about this product is the price, these babies cost Php 3495.00 each ($81.00 when converted -- its cheaper from other sites since it usually costs around $50.00). So I suggest you not to purchase from Rustans since the price is quite far from the actual retail value of the product.
A pan would really last you long since the powder is pressed perfectly that it doesnt crumble even if you swipe a scratchy brush on its surface. The powder is finely milled and feels silky when applied. Blends like a dream and doesnt alter the color of the foundie youre wearing. I also dont have an issue with the scent, I actually love the scent. Luxurious. Classic.
Im a big fan of this product, as you can see, I have all four shades and I love all of them!
Repurchase? Not in the near future, i still have 2 backups for each shade and 3 refills for each shade. (Love the product that much!)
Ever tried Guerlain Powders before? Love them? Hate them? Share your thoughts.
