Guerlain Summer 2020
[unpaid/ad/samples] First of all thank you so much for all your comments on carrying on. Let’s all just keep on going together. Next, Guerlain Summer turns out to be such a wonderful sight, co-ordinating beautifully with some bursting parrot tulips. I had such a nice time taking pictures yesterday.
Les Meteorites is all about bringing light to the face – this particular version (from May) is warm with a colour correction element and takes inspiration from Brazil – hence the name, Brazilian Fizz. I’m never truly sure how well the colour correctors (green and lavender) work because the peach and pink (with a golden pigment) are dominant. But all the best things are in this – the little balls (I would love to see how they get made), the pretty hues and the familiar violet-ish smell that’s such a part of this iconic product. They’re in a vibrant, limited edition tin and will be £46.50 when they launch.
Every year, year after year, this brand brings it with their bronzer (don’t worry, the regular ones are still available and I’ll post them at a later date although they are available now – maybe I’ll do them tomorrow). This is called Terracotta Brazilian Beach and as you can see, you get a dash of gold, a dash of pink and plenty of bronze. It’s £56. I believe that Guerlain uses sustainable woods for these palettes but I don’t have that information to hand but will make the assumption.
The new, new thing this year is the Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette (£44) again available from May.
It’s really such a useful palette and not just for summer – the shades take you through the seasons really if you like a bit of glow. It’s (thankfully) not on the scale of Instagram glows but a more sophisticated version to leave a veil of luminosity in whatever combination or whatever intensity you want. It has the same scent as the pearls. The shades are Pearly Gold, Pearly Pink and Pearly Amber. Pearly Pink by the way is more of a brown pink than a pink-pink. There’s also a Liquid Pearls Pen which I hope to see at some point because I find liquids much easier on the skin than powders. I’m waiting a while before I fully swatch them – in a sort of stock pile situation you might say because in order not to run out of content, I have to split things up a bit I think. While everyone works from home, sending out samples isn’t going to happen I don’t think.
