The Guerlain Meteorites Collection Perles Summer 2010 has quite a soft, natural romantic feel about it.
The main attractions are probably the new limited edition eye quad and the newly revamped Meteorites powders so I’ll start with those first (yes, I did buy more that I should have).
The Ombre Perlees quad (£36.00) contains a matte pinked white, matte very pale lilac grey, matte warm ceramic rose and slightly shimmery taupe. It has a white shimmery over spray over the left side, shaped like a flower, so I've taken a picture of what it looks like when the overspray is off.
It has good pigmentation, and what you see in the pan is what you get once applied, I think I put the colours on a bit heavy at first thinking they would be really sheer and the look was somewhat stark! They blend well and it’s easy to create a soft natural look, I think this will probably work best on those neutral/cool toned.
I’ve had never tried the rated Meteorites face powders, with this summer collection Guerlain has enhance the formulation/colours and they now come house in a metal container. I bought Harmony 01 – Teint Rosé (£33) as it’s aimed at people with pink/cool undertones. It’s meant to “brighten; diminish redness even out your complexion whilst adding radiance”. For me I’d say it does add a subtle glow/radiance, Its nice to have but its not one of my must haves.
I also bought some of the singles shadows and lipsticks from the collection that I’ll be reviewing shortly.
