Guerlain Beige Tint Meteorites ($56.00 for 1.2 oz.) is one of three new shades released with Guerlain Meteorite Perles Collection, due out in May. The two other shades that will be available are Rose Tint and Gold Tint. The new Meteorites are designed to enhance/correct certain issues with skin.
From the press release, “[A] rosy complexion tends to show redness, while a beige complexion turns grey with the onset of fatigue and a golden complexion becomes yellow and dull. As the uncontested expert in color and powder, Guerlain has created three different Météorites Perles color harmonies to address the ways that different skin tones reflect color and light, in line with the principles of the color wheel and interaction of secondary colors.
Keep in mind that Meteorites are not an opaque powder in the least bit! Just like traditional Meteorites, the ones from Meteorites Perles have the same feel and texture. I’ve only tried Beige Tint in person thus far, which is a good thing, considering it’s the one that matches me best. I think I could also work with the Gold Tint as well, but it may be more of a definite highlighter than all over powder. We shall have to wait and see on that aspect!
Beige Tint contains several different colored spheres ranging from champagne-peach, peach-apricot, shimmering white, pinky-apricot, darkened apricot, and lilac. On skin, it has a champagne-lilac illuminating base with sparkles of gold and champagne. It’s a soft, fine-milled shimmer/illuminating powder that looks subtle against skin, even when used all-over. If you do choose to use it as an all-over face powder, using a fluffier or stippling brush ensures you don’t overdo it. Otherwise, it can be used as a light highlighter wherever you want to reflect light (usually cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, etc.).
