Two summery products on their way from Guerlain – actually three but I’ll cover the third in another post because it deserves one all of its own – and as a rarity, they’re spot on for pale tones. Guerlain does bronzing and summer beauty really well but it’s very nice to see some products for those who want radiance but not bronzing.
So, first the Meteorites all dolled up in birthday packaging in honour of Guerlain’s 30th year. The pearls themselves are a blend of (pale) yellow, pink, white and peach designed to give warmth to the skin tone. I find them too light to be warming on my tone, but I certainly think that you’d get some element if you have light tones. They’re rather highly scented with violet. To be honest, I don’t see any difference on my skin with these – and they’re one of those products that you either totally get, or don’t get at all. I love the packaging, the design and the scent, but these Meteorites don’t do a thing for my complexion.
You will have to excuse my shredded arms – gardening pitfalls! This swatch is the Baby Glow Touch which I absolutely love, but again I think it’s more suited to paler tones. That said, trends are such that tone-match for glow is a completely flexible thing and I can just as easily see these ‘moonlight unicorn’ shades looking as stunning on the darkest tones as they would on the palest.
The stick is split into triangles – one sheeny pink, one lilac and one creamy shade. You can either blend together in the palm of your hand and pick up from there with a brush, or sweep the stick for a rainbow-ish effect. It’s a little bit more difficult to individually pick out the shades from the shade but not impossible with a small brush. It’s also perfumed.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
