Guerlain Champs Elysees Meteorites Perles

Guerlain Champs Elysees Meteorites Perles ($58.00 for 1.05 oz.) is supposed to “capture light to create a more luminous and even skin tone.” It does this through a combination of “beige, purple white, gold, and two pinks.” It’s a soft, pale pink with a dusting of white sparkle and a satin-matte finish. MAC Rosy Outlook and Chanel Star Dust are pale pink blushes but both are less highlighters than they are blushes. Guerlain Perles du Dragon is more luminous. Guerlain Perles de Nuit is also more luminous. In the tin, it did seem somewhat similar to Perles du Paradis, but I had almost no visible payoff, so it’s hard to say if they really are similar. See comparison swatches.
