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. Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). bareMinerals Clear Radiance (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Kat Von D Clyde (Light) (P) is more pigmented (90% similar). NARS Cheek Studio I (LE, $30.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Zoeva Gentle Touch (P, $11.80) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Kat Von D Gomez (Light) (P) is less shimmery, more pigmented (85% similar). Urban Decay X-Rated (P, $26.00) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (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.
