Guerlain Meteorites: Perles Du Dragon
Guerlain Meteorites are one of my favorite products. They are multi-functional balls that are multi-colored and create a beautiful luminescence while still being subtle. I sometimes use them as a highlight or for a light dusting all over. I was excited when the new Perles Du Dragon Meteorites were released because the colors of the individual balls look fascinating. Not to mention the packaging is pretty fabulous!
Does anyone else feel that the packaging on these balls look like Christian Louboutin heels? You have a black box and when you open it up the unexpected pop of red is brilliant. I. LOVE. THE. PACKAGING! The container is black with a gold accent on the top. Very simple and chic.
There are 6 colors of the pearls. Pale pink and beige to even out the complexion. White and gold to illuminate. Plum and rosewood to brighten. These are the prettiest set of colors I have seen Guerlain do in their Meteorites. I tend to lean towards warmer toned luminizers and this one to me is very neutral. It gives hints of warmth but it still has the beige and white to tone it down some.
I assumed these would give off more color due to the plum and rosewood balls but they are honestly right on par with other Meteorites. They give off a beautiful luminescence but really very similar to the ones that are in the permanent line. It basically comes down to this: you don't need to own every different shade of these Meteorites, but there are those that collect them for the beautiful, unique containers they come in.
Guerlain Meteorites Perles Du Dragon are a limited edition product and they retail for $58 and can be found at Saks or Nordstrom (and possibly other select retailers that sell Guerlain). I love that when used as a finishing powder to set your foundation the finish you are left with is skin-like, or "Your Face But Better". I find that when I use Meteorites as a setting powder my foundation looks better for longer! I think they are absolutely worth the money, so if you haven't tried these yet you should. These are definitely something to be experienced before written off.
