Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Loose Powder Mattifying Veil

Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Loose Powder Mattifying Veil ($57.00 for 0.7 oz.) is supposed to be a mattifying, translucent loose powder and comes in three shades. I tried Medium, and it was darker than the previously-released variation on this product that I have (but I don’t think I ever got around to reviewing) in Medium, which was frustrating as a long-time customer (consistency is important, especially in foundation shades!). It seems darker than their medium liquid shades (like #03s), just as a heads up, but it is a good match for Joli Teint’s Natural. I wish they had more shades available as well (there is one lighter and one darker).

Guerlain Clair (02) Meteorites Pearls

Guerlain Clair (02) Meteorites Pearls ($60.00 for 0.88 oz.) is described as a “harmony of green … white … and champagne pearls.” Clair (02) contains “green pearls for extra redness correction,” along with “white pearls to reflect the light” and “champagne pearls to adapt to the skin and gently illuminate it.” It also contains three colors that are the base of all the Meteorites (mauve, pink, and yellow). In general, this combination of colors and the way the powder swatches and applies to the skin, it seemed rather brightening. It softened the look of skin (primarily by smoothing out pores), brightened, and added a very, very subtle radiance.

Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Compact Powder

Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Compact Powder ($56.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as an “ultra-absorbent blend [that] perfectly sets makeup and adorns skin in a matte veil.” It’s a sheer, tinted powder that mattifies the skin–my skin looks like the smoothest velvet after applying over foundation. The texture is incredibly finely-milled, silky smooth, and blends easily across the skin.  I used shade Medium, and it only comes in four shades–Light, Intense, and Dore are the other three.

Guerlain Crazy Meteorites Radiance Powder

Guerlain Crazy Meteorites Radiance Powder ($69.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pale, pearlescent pink-tinged translucent powder. It brightens and adds a subtle luminosity to the skin all-over. It also extended the wear of my foundation by an hour and a half, though that’s more of a bonus, as the brand’s description says nothing about improving wear.  The pan uses a combination of pink, beige, lavender, and mint green, but the effect of the color swirled is a pale, cool-toned pink. I think the effect is comparable to Hourglass Mood Light, perhaps a bit more luminous.
