Packaging wise, Guerlain Meteorites Carousel is every beauty collector’s dream. There is nothing about this that doesn’t feel covetable, but the big unasked question is what you actually do with them?
Really, Guerlain Meteorites Carousel is for the skin perfectionists. Truthfully speaking, it’s quite hard to discern whether, once applied to the skin (as a skin powder ‘finish’ or illuminator), whether there’s any difference or not but the theory is that different coloured spheres, when a brush has been swirled over them and the powder applied, will even tone and give skin luminosity. There are tiny twinkles in the mix so you will get significant light catching in that respect, but it’s down to personal preference whether you like to have glimmery skin.
Overall, I found the product to be rather pink-toned. If you use powder on your skin, then Guerlain Meteorites Carousel is just another way to apply powder but rather more glamorously than a standard compact with a slight (very slight) pink tone. The multi-shade spheres are heavily scented with violet which personally I love, and it adds to the dressing-table glamour of the product and gives it a slightly vintage vibe, but if you don’t like a violet scent, steer clear! The powder, once applied, is very silky in texture – there is a marked difference in the feel of my skin on the side of my face that the product is applied to in terms of softness.
It’s the kind of product that holds 90% of the pleasure in the performance of application and 10% in the finished result – there is something a little bit magical about these pastel spheres in their beautiful pot that makes it a truly enjoyable product to use. But, if you’re looking for a dramatic skin finish result, personally, I don’t think you find it here. It’s £41.50 HERE.
