Guerlain Carousel Meteorites Pearls

Guerlain Carousel Meteorites Pearls
Guerlain Carousel Meteorites Pearls

Guerlain Carousel Meteorites Pearls ($62.00 for 0.80 oz.) is supposed to be a mix of “fuchsia,” “soft mauve,” “sunny yellow,” and “pearlescent white” that can be dusted all-over the face. It’s a light, pastel-ish pink with fine gold and champagne micro-shimmer. Guerlain Happy Glow Pearls (LE, $74.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is more pigmented, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Cheek Studio I (LE, $30.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is more pigmented, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is warmer, more pigmented, more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Clear Radiance (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is warmer, more pigmented, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Clyde (Light) (P) is more pigmented (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more pigmented, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Kat Von D Gomez (Light) (P) is more pigmented, less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay X-Rated (P, $26.00) is cooler, more pigmented (85% similar). Zoeva Gentle Touch (P, $11.80) is more pigmented, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I wasn’t able to wear this all-over, because as soon as I did, it looked like I had applied pink blush all-over my face–and I absolutely used a finishing brush with this and lightly swept everything on. It worked better as a subtler blusher on my skin tone (light-medium with light yellow undertones), so I’ll be curious to hear from others on how they’re using it and what their complexion is. If you have more naturally pink-toned skin, it might work better all-over for your complexion than it did on me. It seemed more pigmented, which may be why the pink tone was more obvious when dusted all-over. The consistency is soft, smooth, and silky, as other Meteorite Pearls have been. Meteorite Pearls are usually intended to be used as a finishing, all-over powder, though this edition says it can be used as a setting powder (to improve hold) as well. It extended the wear of my base by maybe a half hour, but it didn’t have major impact on longevity. It does, however, produce a soft glow that looks very natural without being shimmery or metallic on the skin for eight hours.

Guerlain Blackjack & Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Blackjack Kohl Contour Eye Pencil
Guerlain Blackjack Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new formula launching this spring, which will be available in five shades. I tried two of the five, which are reviewed below. The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, water-resistant, creamy, and pigmented. This pencil will need to be sharpened and includes one with the pencil. They’re an average eyeliner; not bad, not ground-breaking–the wear is decent but pigmentation could be better. The texture is a cross between creamy and waxy, so they glide well but still deposit even, smooth color without a lot of work.

Guerlain Blackjack Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark black with a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted for eight hours on me. The consistency was creamy and smooth enough to glide on easily. Colour Pop Swerve (P, $6.00) is less glossy, darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Black Jack (01) (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Smolder (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Call Me (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Blacktrack (P, $16.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Stila Stingray (P, $22.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). MAC Black Brilliance (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Midnight (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Black Black (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Absolute Black (P) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Black Velvet (P, $20.00) is less glossy, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Superfly (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Engraved (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Graphblack (P, $16.00) is less glossy, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark olive green with warm undertones and fine gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one pass, which was buildable to fully opaque color with three layers (this one is best applied in back-and-forth motions). The texture was smooth, creamy, and didn’t tug at the lash line. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Army Style (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Roof Top Party (P, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Snakeskin Dress (17) (DC, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Forever Green (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty O(vert) (56) (P, $25.00) is darker (80% similar). bareMinerals 10AM (LE, $15.00) is darker (80% similar). L'Oreal Green Ivy (270) (P, $8.99) is warmer, darker (80% similar).

Guerlain Mythic Meteorites Voyage Face Powder (Spring 2016)

Guerlain Mythic Meteorites Voyage Powder
Guerlain Mythic Meteorites Voyage Powder

Guerlain Mythic Meteorites Voyage Powder ($59.00 for 0.30 oz. / $179.00 for 0.30 oz. in compact) is a translucent, cool-toned pink and lavender hue with a satin finish. Guerlain Perles des Neiges (LE, $80.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Teint Beige (DC, $58.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Mythic (P, $55.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Perles du Dragon (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Clair (02) (P, $62.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Perles de Nuit (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Teint Rose (DC, $58.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Hot Sensation (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Parure de Nuit (LE, $67.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Paloma Highlight (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Forever Marilyn (LE, $22.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder (LE, $72.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $68.00) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

For spring, Guerlain released a new Meteorites Voyage powder, except that I’m not sure that it is genuinely new in terms of the shade. It also appears to be part of the permanent range, as it is available for purchase with the compact ($179) or as a refill/pan only ($59), which is how the Mythic/Voyage Powder was sold before. As far as I could tell, this is an updated representation of the previously released Mythic, but the color, application, texture, and appearance applied were nearly the same, except I think the new version is slightly smoother and more even and has a little less shimmer. The new version contains slightly more product (0.30 oz. compared to 0.26 oz.) and retails for $2 more ($59 compared to $57). According to the brand, my older version of Mythic had six correcting/illuminating shades while this one has five. Similarly, when I reviewed Claire last January, I also found that it was nearly impossible to tell the difference between that and Mythic on, so that is worth a look if you’re in the market for this type of product but want to get more for your money.

There’s a little more information with respect to the new version, and the powder is supposed to: correct and illuminate as a translucent, pressed powder that can be applied “to the entire face to fix makeup and improve hold.” The brand also suggests that you can highlight specific areas of the face by building up the product on the areas desired. It’s more of a slightly mattifying, brightening, and smoothing powder than a true highlighter, so I think if you were looking for a targeted highlighter, there are better optinos out there, but if you want a finishing or light setting powder, this might work for you. It extends the wear of my base products by one to two hours (but keep in mind, I have normal skin), but the wonder that I’ve always appreciated from the Meteorites Voyage powders has been how it blurs the skin and makes it appear smoother, more even, and a little brighter.

Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo

Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo
Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo

Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a single pan split in half with a darker and lighter shade with both shades running on the warm side with soft shimmer. Despite sharing a physican pan, the darker shade seemed to have a significantly better, smoother texture, while the lighter shade was drier and harder to work with.

Smile (Left) is a bright, medium-dark orange-coral with warm undertones and subtle gold shimmer. The texture was soft, smooth, blendable, and easy to apply, while the color payoff was semi-opaque and buildable. On me, the blush lasted for eight hours before fading. Becca Snapdragon (P, $34.00) is cooler, more muted, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Ex (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #410 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Tongue Tied (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Coral (P, $25.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Supercontinental (LE, $22.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #2 (LE) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Fleeting Romance (P, $23.50) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Never Been Kissed (LE, $8.00) is more muted, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Clinique Ginger Pop (01) (P, $21.00) is more muted, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Smashbox Persimmon (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Hourglass Incandescent Electra (LE) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Modern Mandarin (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy (P, $40.00) is warmer, more muted, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Bang (P, $26.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Colour Pop Jelly Fish (DC, $8.00) is darker (80% similar). Becca Lantana (P, $32.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smile (Right) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It was much more powdery and drier in the pan, which made it harder to apply to the skin. I felt like I had to really pack it on to get noticeable color, and it required some extra patience to get even application of the color. I noticed fading after six and a half hours of wear. MAC Lotus Blossom (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Launch Away (LE, $22.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush III (LE) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Modest Blush (LE, $27.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Tres Fab (LE) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Rosy Outlook (P, $23.50) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC At Dusk (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NYX Hamptons (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Floral Pink (844) (LE, $44.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Edward Bess Filled with Desire (P, $43.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Peach Passion (P, $34.00) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Morning Rose (P, $52.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Hourglass Incandescent Electra (LE, $35.00) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Blush (LE) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Becca Camellia (P, $34.00) is cooler, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Laura Geller Rosewater (P, $26.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Liberation (Left) (LE) is warmer, more muted (85% similar). Catrice La Vie En Rose (P, $5.99) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
