Guerlain Spring 2016 Collection


In 1987, Guerlain, the architect of light, launched Meteorites: the first loose illuminating and color-correcting powder that came in the form of multi-colored pearls. One stroke of the brush and these pearls released a perfecting halo to bathe the skin with light and glow with ideal radiance.

There is no mistaking the enviable radiance of a woman’s skin when she looks well rested, healthy and vibrant. She has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. Today, Guerlain reveals the secret to her ethereal glow with a joyful, luminous and colorful 2016 Spring Collection.

The Details

Meteorites Primer | $74.00

An essential skin-perfecting primer and ultimate radiance booster, Meteorites Primer reveals correcting and perfecting pearls of light in a fresh gel formula. Mattified and unified, the complexion is beautifully enhanced, even before makeup application.

Meteorites Voyage Powder Compact | $179.00

Guerlain’s most precious powder features a universal shadec omprised of 5 different micro-pearl colors to correct and illuminate all skintones. With a delicate sweep of the brush, these light, sheerp owders bathe the skin in an intangible veil of light. The result: even purer radiance and instant translucent luminosity. Hand-selected and weighed, the pearls are compressed to create a powder that perfectly fuses with the skin. Its ultimate color corrective shimmer, enriched with pink and white pearls, refreshes the shadow areas of face and directs light to the face’s most pronounced zones (cheekbones, nose, and forehead). The Météorites signature Stardust technology transforms the invisible UV light into visible and soft-focus perfecting light to fade imperfections and illuminate the face. And who can resist this stunningnewjewel-like silvercase adorned with such detail and artistry.

Le Crayon Yeux Water Resistant Long-Lasting Khol Liner | $31.00

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder ($179.00 for 0.28 oz.) is supposed to mattify the skin while “instantly blur[ring] the appearance of small imperfections.” Guerlain says to apply it “over foundation to set it.” The powder has the brand’s signature violet scent, though I found it very subtle (which was a surprise, given Guerlain has tended to heavily scent their powders recently).

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eyes & Blush Palette

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette ($90.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes five eyeshadows housed in the top tier and then four blushes hidden beneath it in the lower tier. I’m not a fan of the blush formula they use in these tiered palettes, and I’m even less of a fan of the fact that the pans are tiny (even the “large” ones)–an eye brush just comfortably fits in the smallest pans, so you can imagine what a pain it is to dip a blush brush just into one shade (better to think of them as duos or even a single shade, perhaps). The blush formula is on the drier, dustier side and has lesser color payoff, though it is somewhat buildable. I like the eyeshadow formula a lot more, but the colors are dupable, typical for holiday (not really a bad thing, but it’s less tempting for some), and even more, more similar than not to last year’s holiday palette as well. That being said, the eyeshadows weren’t good enough to make up for the subpar blush performance this year.
