Product Review; "Guerlain Meteorites Perles"
Again, fragrance is something I tend to avoid. Although, when done properly, it's actually a pretty nice treat.
I find that I'm not so interested in fragrance because there's really no practical use for it in my field. I mean, I know we lump it together with the rest of cosmetics in general, but you can't actually smell a product through the screen of a music video or the pages of an editorial spread. So, it doesn't really matter to me what the product smells like, so long as it looks good.
When famed fragrance house Guerlain opted into color cosmetics, it took it's signature scent and incorporated it into every product under it's manufacture. To me, it's a bit like a faded rose with a light powdery finish and just a smidge of musk.
Oh, que fancy, I can distinguish top notes of perfume!
Seriously, sometimes I think there's a bit of something to it that is distinctively floral but then melts away without any kind of headiness.
Not to say that Meteorites Perles isn't a lovely product to look at! Each individual powder ball is hand picked and sorted into it's container by a meticulous assembly line who's job is to make sure that each and every ball of light is proportioned to suit it's purpose of guising complexions into flawless radiance. Coming in a combination of tones to offset redness, dullness and improve life of skin, Meteorites Perles is the ideal highlighter for skin tones from very fair to medium dark.
When you open the container you'll see each layer of one color right on top of the next. Simply remove the included puff, replace the lid and give it a little shake. The product will release, all the perles will distribute evenly and you're ready for an elegant dusting of light over your skin. Improved tone, glow and overall complexion perfection.
All this and a lovely fragrance too.
