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 LOVERead More
If you want to wear berry or plum lipsticks but are afraid of an opaque colour, you may want to try Guerlain Shine Automatique (£24.50 / €33.55) in 760 Lou-Ling which is a part of the Christmas 2012 makeup collection.
This lipstick actually gets a lot of attention because of the design. When I was at one party my friend’s husband told me that his Mum (70+) used to have the same one (the same design, not shade, obviously) when he was a boy and how he was always curious about how it worked.
Although Lou-Ling is a plummy lipstick and gives a beautiful shade, it is not a full-on colour and is very wearable. It does not demand high maintenance and you can apply this lipstick on the go, without a brush or a lip pencil. Such shade really helps to freshen up the look, especially in the dull November weather.
I also like that this Lou-Ling has a subtle shimmer, nothing over the top.
It feels light and non-drying on the lips and doesn’t look horrible when starts fading away. This lipstick is also pretty long-lasting for such formula.
I am a huge fan of berry and plum nail polishes, especially for Autumn/Winter period, they look very sophisticated and chic. I have actually never tried Guerlain nail lacquers (£18 / €23) before, so was excited to start with Lou-Ling from their Christmas collection, as it is a beautiful shade.
It is a gorgeous glossy plum with very subtle micro shimmer which is only visible under the certain light or with a certain flash.
Lou-Ling has a nice formula which goes on smoothly and looks opaque with only one coat. But I do wear two coats on the picture above. The brush is thinner than I personally like but since it’s not very not long, it gives you a good control.
This is a wonderful classic nail colour, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone who loves luxury brands. It would make a great present, too.Read More
It is my Birthday this Sunday so I though I’d get myself something nice. By something nice I usually mean luxury makeup.
I also wanted to try Shellac (better late than never right?) so I did get a manicure. A red one! I will write a post about it in 2 weeks. Now the only thing that is left – get my hair done but I can’t think of what I want. I don’t want any huge changes…
But back to the makeup. I wanted to get some Chanel and Guerlain but guess what? ALL products that I’ve wanted to get were out of stock!!! Unbelievable.
Most of all I wanted to get 2 shades from the Guerlain Spring range but the 2 shades that I wanted were sold out!
The shades are swatched in this order:
- 45 Orange Euphorique
- 24 Rouge
Every time I am wearing Guerlain’s KissKiss gloss I get a lot of compliments. All shades are very pretty but my absolute favourite is #800 Crystal Pearl which is described as shimmering iridescent pearl.
The design is beautiful and the shade looks amazing even in the tube, so imagine how gorgeous it looks on the lips!
This gloss has a convenient small brush which is easy to use. KissKiss makes your lips look shiny and sparkly. The product stays on for quite a long time and it feels great on the lips. Please keep in mind that it has quite a strong scent but I personally don’t mind.
You should get this gloss if you like:Read More
