beauty – and the Pearl

by Guerlain.  A review:guerlain2

MÉTÉORITES PERLES is really a makeup base (more than a primer) that will bring more light to the face (light diffusing) and helps to keep makeup stay put.

It is the first makeup base with pearls of light. There’s no denying the bottle looks beautiful with all those pearly balls and it would look perfect sitting on any bathroom shelf.  I’m drawn to Guerlain products in general and use their terracotta bronzing powder and am on my second refill of Météorites Voyage Compact (shown below – for travel it’s an ingenious mixture of six correcting or light-enhancing colors that look so pretty you almost don’t want to use it).  I tried a generous size sample of the perles (shown with it) and liked the results.  Like all products from this glam french beauty house, it is pricey at approx. $80.

With an exclusive, color-control base to camouflage blemishes and discoloration, the pearlescent extracts help to capture and reflect light, blurring the appearance of fine lines without adding shine. Just don’t use too much foundation on top of it otherwise you will lose the total effect.   Enriched with natural mother-of-pearl powder, the pearls conceal imperfections and smooth and soften the skin texture.  SOLD??

Have you tried any Guerlain products?  If so, do you have a favourite?
