Temptalia Asks You

Temptalia's AnswerVanilla works for me, but a lip product that doesn’t smell at all is best!

Guerlain Angelic Radiance Meteories Perles de Blush
Guerlain Angelic Radiance Meteories Perles de Blush

Guerlain Angelic Radiance Meteories Perles de Blush ($53.00 for 0.45 oz.) is described as “fuchsia that revives the natural color of the cheeks, an iridescent champagne that illuminates the curve of the cheekbones and a rose petal pink that gently refreshed the complexion.” It’s a light-medium, subtly warm-toned pink with a satin finish and a subtle sparkle strewn through a few of the pearls. Tarte Whimsy (LE, $26.00) is more matte. Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is lighter. MAC Peaches & Cream (LE, $21.00) is darker. Dior My Lady (002) (LE, $60.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Sleek MakeUP Icing Sugar (P, $6.99) is more sparkly. Urban Decay Temper (LE) is cooler-toned. MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is darker. Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $45.00) is darker, warmer. Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

For those who have wanted the pearls with more color, these have good color payoff that can be more buildable. A lot of the fuchsia pearls are smaller than the illuminating pearls, so the first time I used this, I didn’t get much color, because most of the blushing ones were on the bottom layer. There is some visible sparkle, but there is so little of it in the pearls that it doesn’t end up being noticeable unless you go looking for it. Once buffed and blended on the skin, there’s a lightly luminous sheen to the blush itself. There is a strong violet scent (stronger than usual to me), which will come down to personal preference. On me, the blush started to show signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

It’s nearly half the size of the permanent Meteorites Pearls (which are 0.88 oz. for $60), though they are not the same product as this one is more tinted, and where the regular Pearls are more of an all-over product, this is for cheeks, so if you compare to other powder blushes, it is a lot more product (most blushes are around 0.15 to 0.20 oz.). I didn’t find it to be that pigmented unless I used the sponge that came with it, but brushes didn’t seem to give much color. That being said, everything about this seems tiny visually. The pearls in this are extremely small–I have never seen an entire container with such tiny pearls in it before–and the container itself is small and made out of cardboard (I had hoped Guerlain had moved past that!). The pearls were so small, they kept getting trapped in the blush brush I’d use it with (I actually tried it with three different brushes, and at least one pearl would hide away in the brush!).
