An illuminating powder made up of light-diffusing pearls that minimize flaws and add brightness to the skin. Geurlain’s iconic handcrafted pearls have been reinvented with a boosted illuminating power. For the first time ever, Météorites’ Pearls incorporate Guerlain’s exclusive Stardust Technology, a spherical pigment contained within each pearl. This formulation diffracts light upon contact to envelop the skin in a halo of light. Each lightweight shade has a specific correcting action to offer women the ultimate in luminous skin.
Guerlain’s Météorites Illuminating Powder Pearls are housed in a beautiful silver light-weight jar with a slide-off lid. Inside, you’ll find multi-colored spheres. The Medium version of this product contains shades of tan, yellow, cream, pink, and lavender. But once you’ve mixed the spheres together and applied the product to the skin, you don’t get much color, just subtle shimmer.
This is marketed as a skin brightener and illuminating powder. But I personally would not use this all over the face. The shimmer is too distinct and apparent to put all over the entire face. Instead, I think this product works very well in a more traditional highlighting role — applied to the tops of the cheeks and, for a more dramatic luminizing effect, on the cupid’s bow and down the nose.
The formula is extremely finely-milled, soft, and smooth. But I’ll note that this product is heavily scented, which isn’t great, particularly for a face product.
