I hope that you remember the post about Guerlain summer 2010 and the new meteorites. I don’t have them yet but I have all the meteorites that are available now from the regular line in mini version which I got in Duty Free for $90 last year. But I got mine in Asian Edition, not the regular one. They are the same but are without brush and with different design.
When I think about Guerlain the first thing that comes to my mind – Meteorites. It is also a products that every fan of makeup should have. But what is Meteorites anyway? Guerlain describes them the following way:
“Revolutionising powders in 1987, Guerlain captured Météorites pearls to suffuse the skin with pure light. This was the birth of Météorites, a magical powder in the form of pearls, an explosion of colours in a delightfully stylish and eye-catching case. A new way of applying make-up was born: the brush skims across the beads which glide over each other releasing a remarkably light powder. The alchemy of colours produces perfect results and each colour has a special function.”
This is how my Meteorites look like. And I apologize for the quality of the photos , I made them several months ago (yes, sometimes the photos wait for months till I find time to write a review) and wanted to make better photos but I realized that I don’t have the package anymore. Although some packages are too beautiful to throw them away I have to do it because I don’t even have enough place for makeup itself not talking about the packages.
This is how the design looks like: pastel blue, pink and white with golden oriental ornament. Blue is – 01 Mythic shade , Pink -02 Pink Fresh, White – 03 Beige Chic.
What are Meteorites for?!
The original 01 Mythic shade combines pink to give a healthy glow, green to diminish any redness, mauve to catch the light, white to brighten the complexion and gold and pearl to create highlights and to add radiance.
02 Pink Fresh: pink shades with a hint of apricot for an immediate healthy glow.
03 Beige Chic: a soft beige combination for a naturally even-looking complexion.
Don’t forget that you can take the pearls that you don’t like out to get the effect you want!
