Guerlain Perles d’Etoiles Meteorites Illuminating Pearls

Guerlain Perles d’Etoiles Meteorites Illuminating Pearls ($60.00 for 0.88 oz.) is a softened, medium beige with golden shimmer. I expect mine is leaning a bit more obviously beige/warm, since some of the pearls (and it appears the bronzy ones!) were crushed. Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is more golden. NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is liquid. theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is pinker. bareMinerals The Magic Moment (LE, $26.00) is pinker. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery. Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $42.00) is darker, more shimmery. Chanel Lumiere d’Artifices Beiges Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($65.00 for 0.56 oz.) is compact that features a bronzer and a highlighter. I can see why this is one of the most raved about products from the brand’s offerings, as the texture of both powders is soft, finely-milled, and silky, while the bronzer is not too orange or yellow, and the highlighter is luminous without emphasizing pores. There’s also quite a bit of product in the compact, so it’s a better value than some of the other products in the range. They’re both nice products, and if you regularly bronze/contour and highlight, it may be convenient to have it a single palette together. If you have a healthy stash of bronzers and highlighters, you may find this more dupable.

Too Faced Everything Nice Palette

It comes with a glittery, pink pouch, three short-handled brushes, and a deluxe-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. It’s new and limited edition for the holidays. It’s slim with a variety of neutrals and jewel-tones, matte and frosts, which makes it a more versatile, travel-friendly palette (though Too Faced could use more satin/pearl finishes in the range).
