I am the ultimate sucker for pretty packaging and products, and the Guerlain Meteorites Light Revealing Pearls of Powder could potentially take the cake for prettiest ever. The Pearls of Powder are “a reinvention of the iconic Meteorites Perles” (according to COSME-DE, which I will tell you more about in a minute) and are from the Spring 2014 Meteorites Blossom collection. I have the pearls in Blanc De Pearl, which is a mix of pretty illuminating pearls as well as color corrective pearls.
So first of all, the packaging. So pretty. It’s a little silver container with a gorgeous blossom design on the lid. This is absolutely a container I will keep long after the product is gone, simply because it’s stunning. As for the actual pearls themselves, I honestly don’t even know how they stay together in a pearl formation, because the powder is SO incredibly finely milled. It feels like silk on the skin and is just so luxurious. I like to use these pearls as a highlight because they have a definite shimmer to them that I don’t think I’d like all over my face, and a little powder dusted on the tops of my cheekbones creates the perfect amount of radiance. They have a fragrance that is a little hard to nail down- it’s very soft, clean and a bit floral. It’s not overwhelming at all and I like it a lot!
I got the Guerlain Meteorites Light Revealing Pearls of Powder online from COSME-DE. I honestly hadn’t heard of them before they approached me about a collaboration, but was instantly intrigued when I saw the wide assortment of high-end products that they carry, and all at great prices. I’ll admit that I was wondering “is this site legit?” when I first checked it out, however I was assured not only by the lovely rep that I’ve been chatting with that all of their products are 100% authentic, but also by their great rating (with over 646 reviews) on Bizrate. So, rest assured, COSME-DE is legit, and you will love ordering from them.
My shipment came SO quickly (I was honestly so surprised. I received my shipping notification a couple days earlier and didn’t expect it to arrive for at least a week, and it was there only a couple of days later!) and was packaged perfectly. I know we all have either heard someone’s horror story or even have our own horror stories of makeup arriving all busted up and in a mess because it wasn’t packaged properly, but my COSME-DE order arrived all snuggled up in mountains of bubble wrap… just the way I like it.
The Guerlain Pearls of Powder are definitely a luxury product that I will cherish like my first-born child (I’m only half-kidding, hahaha) and use sparingly so I can make them last forever. This product was my first dip into Guerlain and I can’t wait to get another taste!
