Guerlain Météorites Perles in 01 Teint Rosé

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 5 - 2011

I was sure I’d already blogged about my Guerlain Météorites Perles?  I mean, there aren’t many items I use so frequently but this is one of the ones I reach for almost every morning.

And for one, it’s a pure joy just to reach for… look…

I bought the shade 01 Teint Rosé back in March when I had a coupon code for StrawberryNet.  I’d been lusting after them forever but money-off was the final push I needed to take the plunge!

The metal tin houses 100s? (I’m not counting them) of little powder balls in a variety of lilac, green, pink, yellow and white shades that promise to colour-correct and impart a healthy glow.  It also smells like a giant parma violet.

I use this in conjunction with my Trish McEvoy powder brush #5 to swirl before lightly buffing over my face.  My personal preference is to use this when I’ve finished applying my makeup… it gives a very light covering so I consider it my ‘finishing’ powder.  To my eye, it adds luminosity and a slight soft-focus finish.  You might be interested to hear that the other product I use (when I’m not using this) is ELF’s HD Powder.  Eclectic.

Guerlain Météorites occasionally comes under accusations of being a bit “Emperors New Clothes” but all I can say about it is that it’s one of my very few Holy Grail items and will last me for (literally) many years, making its hefty price tag seem a little more justifiable.

Do you use Guerlain Météorites?  Love it?  Think it’s massively over-rated?

  1. I love Guerlain Meteorites! I have the original, travel size and beige. Fabulous!

  2. Suzanne says:

    These are my ultimate wistful must have. So spensive. But so beautiful. I’d never even use it, I’d just sit it there and look at it. sigh.

  3. Paris B says:

    Ah Meteorites – my Holy Grail cannot do without everyday item too! I have these same ones, and the pressed powder ones too for toting around. Not the crazy expensive Voyage ones – you’d have to sell a kidney for that one 😛

  4. Anitacska says:

    As you know I love them and have (literally) all of them. :) They are so pretty and smell so lovely. Aah. Every year I look forward to a new limited edition one as well as the voyage powder, and every year they get prettier. :)

  5. Bellide says:

    They should really sell them in smaller packages… like 10 pearls that will approx. last for 10 years. Though the packaging is probably what makes the hefty price!

  6. Tass says:

    I don’t really use a finishing powder but it’s so pretty to look at. I would just keep it on display (if I could afford it) xx

  7. Jade says:

    Ahh I got this in the 02 shade in my local salon last week on sale for half price! They did have this shade too, might go back and get it….I agree, this is love.

  8. shanice says:

    I want it just because of how pretty it is! It reminds me of something you’d see by a vintage dressing table type thing, so cute!x

  9. luxiehoney says:

    It reminds me of elf’s Complexion Perfection (my favourite powder), as it has different colours too. Much cheaper for me as well thankfully! xxx

  10. Jeannine says:

    I love my Meteorites. Even if I didn’t believe it adds a little something special to my face, the smell is superb!

  11. eva says:

    I use it, I love it. I don’t think it has an illusionary effect, I can see it working!

  12. Larie says:

    They are so pretty to look at! I do want to try this sometime – it’s on my list!

  13. baby in a corner says:

    I came so close to buying these recently! When you mean finishing powder do you mean instead of loose powder or as another step?

  14. Eden-Avalon says:

    I don’t usually use a finishing powder because I haven’t seen enough of a difference in the end result with them. I just take to topping off with my MAC blot powder.

  15. Shortiee31 says:

    I LOVE Guerlain’s packaging!

  16. I have an Asian LE mini version of the old meteorites (got at duty free) but I always forget to use them :)

  17. sharnek says:

    I recently bought Teint Beige 02 and have used it every day since. Can’t quite put my finger on what it does, but it does do something lovely to the finished look of my makeup. Interesting the other loose powder is use is also ELF’s HD. I love Gurerlains packaging and the scent reminds me of something my Nana would wear.

  18. Nazgul says:

    Oh, I love them, bought the one in Teint Beige 02. But considering to buy a lighter tone, to get porcelain look :)

  19. domncroxd says:

    ah :( unfortch doesn’t really work on me. i think they’re highly overrated. but glad to know that it works for you!
