Guerlain Meteorites Perles Du Dragon Review and Swatches

Meteorites by Guerlain are already a cult product and don’t even need an introduction. In fact, this year Guerlain celebrate the 25th Birthday of their  famous powders.

I was given the latest edition – MÉTÉORITES PERLES DU DRAGON (£37.50 / €48) from Guerlain’s Christmas collection to show you.

I really love the packaging,  one of my favourite edition, you know how much I love black!

The shades are:  “pale pink and beige to even out the complexion, white and gold to illuminate, plum and rosewood to brighten areas of shadow and erase fatigue.”

Meterorites give your skin a beautiful and healthy sheen, I have written about it here in details. Unfortunately, I don’t really have time to use them that often in the morning, as I am always in a hurry and this  product should be used on a perfectly preped skin.

Here is how all the shades look like:

And here is every “pearl” separately.  And, wow, I LOVE using the plum shade separately as a blush. I usually take that that one “pearl” and rub on my skin (although you can take out the plum pearls and use it with a brush but the effect will be subtle). This is the exact shade that I was looking for, I love it so much. People who have NARS Sin, do you think it is similar?

You can do the same with other shades, too: use darker shades as blush and lighter shades as highlighter. Or, of course, use them all together, as the brand suggests.

As you can see, you have quite a few variants on how to use this product which is so much fun.

And, boys, if you don’t know what to get your wife/girlfriend for Christmas (or just because you love her) – this is a prefect option. Guerlain Meteorites Perles Du Dragon is a  beautiful, high-end product and the price would not break the bank. Plus a lot of  women collection these.

I personally was very happy to get this set with meteorites as a gift from my BF several years ago, that was a very thoughtful gift (although I did ask for it, ha!).

    I was checking these out a couple day ago ^^ they still look good here in the pictures, like how I remember them. Ahhh, I’m still debating on whether to get this or the Shiseido Camellia compact.. Both are so pretty! Thanks for the review

    OMG! Marina, I passed on the Pucci edition Meteorites and said I would wait until the one I believed suited my skin tone came along, and I do believe this one is it! I personally don’t own any of Guerlain’s Meteorites (as crazy as that sounds) and am simply dying for this one! The only problem is the price tag; I believe it’s selling for $170.00 or so I heard…I sure hope that’s not true, though!
