Spring is my favorite time of the year. Flowers bloom, greenery is greener, we get to wear lighter clothing and best of all: I was born in the spring. Everything is lighter, brighter and beautiful in the spring and I think that Guerlain Spring 2016 (available at Nordstrom) totally embodies that. Everything from the beautiful Meteorites Voyage compact to the Smile blush. Be still my heart.
Guerlain Spring 2016
How about we start with the gorgeous blush. The Guerlain Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo contains a satiny red and an extremely delicate pink. The gorgeous blush is housed in a metallic red compact, it contains a pretty pink brush and has the word Smile embossed into it. Its Pink Booster pigments capture natural light and enhance your complexion’s natural pink hue. Rosy cheeks with a delicate glow, as if you had just spent a day in the fresh air, with a lightweight imperceptible finish. Sounds exactly like spring, doesn’t it?
The limited edition Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Silky Powder with the word Enjoy embossed into it is a typical spring shade, but unusual in my opinion for an eyeshadow. I was intrigued by the buttercup shade but when it is used as a wash over the lid it creates a light and delicate halo to illuminate and intensify the eyes in a subtle way. It is in a metallic gold champagne compact and has a great weight to it.
The Long-Lasting Eye Pencils in Black Jack and Khaki Driver are perfection. Black Jack is smooth inky black that goes on really easily and can be smudged out for a smoky lash line but once it sets it is definitely staying put. Khaki Driver is a gorgeous blackened green shade that has a subtle shimmer. It is beautiful and adds a bit of interest to the lash line. It is definitely a great spin on a classic dark liner.
The Meteorites Base Perfecting Pearl Anti Dullness primer is the answer to all of my prayers. I always want a luminous dewy looking skin but a lot of the time I struggle with achieving that look because I have combination/oily skin. The fresh gel texture melts with the rosy pearls to give skin a plumpy finish while a combination of absorbent powders and a special polymer neutralizes excess sebum and helps to conceal blemishes for a long-lasting matt complexion that gradually becomes more even with each application. Thanks to the Stardust technology, a diamond powder encapsulated in microspheres, light is reflected in a new direction to create soft-focus perfecting halo. So essentially, it helps keep your skin plump, matte and dewy simultaneously. I know why they call it a mythical primer.
I am a huge fan of the traditional Meteorites which is a little container of pearl-like balls that smell amazing. Well, the Meteorites Voyage powder is essentially a pressed version. This compact is specific to the collection, but it is also refillable so once you use up the AMAZING powder you can easily pop another one in it.
Guerlain Météorites Voyage powder corrects and illuminates the complexion with radiance. The powder holds an blend of 5 different colours of micro pearls. The universal harmony, perfect mix of correcting and illuminating shades, adapts to all skin-types. The creamy texture perfectly melts with the skin that instantly appears softer. A true radiance booster, the “ultimate colour corrective” nacres refresh dark zones and catch the light on rounded zones. Combined with a high level of Stardust technology, a diamond powder encapsulated in microspheres, they create a soft-focus perfecting halo.
There are other products from this collection and I urge you to seek them out, but these are by far my favorites.
