Guerlain Summer Edition (2015) Meteorites Pearls

Guerlain Summer Edition (2015) Meteorites Pearls ($62.00 for 0.88 oz.) is described as “delicate pastel colors” available exclusively at Nordstrom. According to the brand, it uses “fresh green” for anti-redness, fuchsia to revive, “sunny yellow” for anti-dullness, “pearlescent white” to reflect light, champagne to illuminate, and “rich coral” to enhance. The overall effect is supposed to give “your skin in a pure radiant halo of light while covering your skin in a delicate violet scent.” The back of the container also calls them Rainbow Pearls (rather than Summer Edition), and worth nothing is that they look little like the promotional image.

Top 10: Best of Guerlain

Long-time readers will know that I’ve been a fan of Guerlain’s products for a very long time, and a lot of my holy grail base products are from them (like my discontinued but beloved Parure Gold!). I’m not as enamored with their eyeshadow or blush formula, but their Rouge Gs remain my favorite lipsticks of all-time. The formula is long-wearing, hydrating, comfortable to wear, and pigmented, and the only thing that makes them hard to love is the wallet-killing price tag of $53 (and I remember when they were $48 or so!). If you’ve tried Guerlain, I’d love to hear your personal favorites! 🙂

Guerlain Mono Eyeshadows

Guerlain Mono Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a recently released range of single eyeshadows. I bought three of them to try, and if you notice the pattern on the monos are the same as some of the recent limited edition quads (which I have had some issues with), and these are just okay. They’re average eyeshadows, which doesn’t make them compelling at $34 a pop given they’re somewhat powdery, prone to sheering out, and have below-average wear (six hours). The major selling point of the formula is that it’s supposed to “stay all day long,” but it’s the type of powder eyeshadow formula that feels like my eyelids are “eating” them as they just don’t last.
