Guerlain Medium (03) Meteorites Compact

Guerlain Medium (03) Meteorites Compact ($62.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “beige and champagne colors” that “unify while peach dots add a perfecting touch.” It’s a translucent powder with very fine shimmer that translates into more of a soft sheen on the skin rather than detectable shimmer or sparkle. As much as I love Meteorites, it can be difficult to distinguish differences between them at times, and this is one of those times. Visually, I really just don’t notice a difference between the effect of this compared to Clair (02 on my skin tone. I think some skin tones might find one works better than the other, but on my medium complexion, they both give a subtle luminous effect that simultaneously blurs imperfections while giving the skin a brightened, livelier appearance. I love the effect of both on the skin, but I don’t think you need both unless you’re very fair or much deeper and perhaps your skin tone will allow any nuances to become visible.

Guerlain Les Nuees (18) Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Les Nuees (18) Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a new, limited edition cooler-toned set of shades. I felt like the color combination really needed another mid-tone or medium-dark shade, because the three lighter shades tended to muddy together, while the navy blue was almost too dark and harsh in comparison. The color payoff varied from shade to shade, and none of the shades wore particularly well on me as most were prone to fading.

Guerlain Clair (02) Meteorites Compact (2015)

Guerlain Clair (02) Meteorites Compact ($62.00 for 0.35 oz.) uses “green dots [to] hide redness, white dots [to] illuminate, and champagne [to] even out skin tone.” I feel like the best way to describe Meteorites and their effect on the skin is that people start asking you, “What are you doing with your skin? It looks amazing!” You get comments on your skin, not your makeup. That being said, I also feel like it’s a product that is more believable in person than in photos. On me, it imparts subtle luminosity and gives my skin a smoother appearance while minimizing pores and skin texture. The texture is soft, finely-milled, and it feels velvety and smooth on the skin. Even though this shade is technically designed for fair skin, it worked well on my medium complexion (likely due to the translucent nature of the product).
