Electric Look

Guerlain Electric Look All Eyes on You Palette ($80.00 for 0.80 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring eight eyeshadows and two highlighters for the holidays. The formula can be used wet or dry, but they really offer little insight into the formula behind the palette. The majority of the products were pigmented applied dry, so using them damp usually amplified the finish or made them a little smoother but wasn’t strictly necessary for coverage/application. That being said, the mattes did NOT play well with a dampened brush, so I would advise being careful with using them with a dampened brushes–instead I recommend to pick up product, then gently spray your brush to wet it (or the back of your hand).

Electric Pearl

Guerlain Electric Pearl Meteorites Pearls ($65.00 for 0.80 oz.) is a soft, translucent peach with fine copper micro-sparkles and finer, champagne pearl. It’s the newest limited edition release in the Meteorites Pearls range, and this holiday’s edition is supposed to “create a halo of radiance” with a “subtle harmony of gold and copper pearls” that “counter a dull complexion” while the “champagne and white pearls reflect the light.” It is a more sparkly version in Meteorites, so if seeing visible sparkle on your skin is a deal-breaker, you’ll want to give this a miss. I could see if working as a subtle highlighter on cheeks if desired, and when packed on enough, I could get the faintest hint of color on my skin.

As a finishing powder, it added subtle luminosity all-over my face without making me look powdery, and it did not change my skin tone or coloring. I do find the effect is subtle enough that it is more noticeable in person and in harsher light (studio lighting is more forgiving, so the finishing powder doesn’t do as much lifting). The Meteorite Pearls didn’t impact the longevity of my base in either direction. I felt like I saw the light being reflected and some brightening of my overall complexion, but it was a subtle effect as usual.

I noticed that this year’s edition did not include any pouf or foam round on top the pearls, so mine arrived rather dusty. They are floral-scented.

Electric Light

Guerlain Electric Light Terracotta Copper Bronzing Powder ($56.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. This was more like a highlighter than a bronzer, though very fair skin tones may find it to be a light bronzer. The pigmentation was mostly opaque and buildable to full coverage with a second layer. It had a firmer, smooth consistency that wasn’t as finely-milled as I’d expect from the brand’s past powder releases, so it needed a slightly heavier hand to pick up product with a brush. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily, though, and it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Like most Guerlain Terracotta products, it is heavily scented with floral (violet, per the brand) notes–when I say heavily scented, I mean leaving it open perfumes a room, and it is noticeable applied.

#91

Guerlain #91 Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color (2018) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium red with subtle, cool undertones and fine, ruby red pearl paired with a naturally shiny finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that had noticeable slip when being applied but it didn’t slide around when worn. The formula sat well on my lips and smoothed out my lip lines and did not settle into them over time. It wore well for five and a half hours and was nicely hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense colour" with a hydrating base that includes things like jojoba and mango butter as well as hyaluronic acid (and gugul resin) to "help to smooth and plum up lips." I would describe the formula as somewhere between semi-opaque and opaque, often buildable, with a luminous sheen that seems like there's very, very fine pearl but less distinctive shimmer (except for the shades that are actually shimmery). I find that the magic of the formula is in its finish--it's shiny, luminous, and absolutely smoothing on the lips without compromising wear (four to six hours, sometimes longer). The formula is very hydrating and comfortable to wear. They have a sweet, floral scent but no discernible taste to me. The updated shade range seems to have a stronger emphasis on mid-tones in coral and red and less beiges than before.

The Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Colors have been updated but mostly with respect to packaging and the shade range, as the formula itself has not been changed (per the brand). The lipsticks are now available as refills for $32.00 each, and then one can pick from an assortment of cases ($15.00 each), though each refill comes with a small, plastic cap that keeps the refill from drying out while waiting to be sold. The refill cap seems like it would be sufficient to keep the lipstick long-term, but I can't say from experience. I have not tested each shade for wear, but the shades I have tested, initial swatches and applications, and the like make the formula seem the same as before.

The old Rouge G cases do not fit on the new refills as the case doesn't stay on without a magnet (it just slides right off). I don't yet have any of the cases as they weren't available to me to purchase yet, but I plan to pick one or two up merely to see how they feel (probably the Original, to see if there was any weight change, and then something new).

A big upside to the refillable packaging is that they're actually significantly less expensive buying them piecemeal than buying it all-in-one. The original Rouge Gs were last sold at $58.00 for 0.12 oz., and now, the all-in-one price is effectively $47.00 for 0.12 oz. -- that's a nearly a 19% reduction in price.

Rainbow Pearls

Guerlain Rainbow Pearls Meteorites Pearls ($63.00 for 0.80 oz.) is a translucent powder that is supposed to have “six new shades” that “diffuse redness and dark spots” and minimize “areas of shadow” and “counter dullness.” Per the description, it states to use it to “set make-up and revive the complexion.” It seemed to neutralize some of the natural redness in my skin when applied over bare skin (maybe by 10-15%), but when I used it over foundation, the effect wasn’t necessary given that the foundation was doing the heavy lifting anyway. It did more in the way of softening out my natural texture and giving my foundation a soft focus finish without being too flat or too powdery. I don’t think that it did that much to “counter dullness” nor minimize “areas of shadow.”

This limited edition, summer version of the famous Meteorites Pearls is more of a translucent powder that softens skin texture and the look of pores but doesn’t add a lot of noticeable sparkle/shimmer. I’d say more in the vein of delicately shimmered to keep the powder from reading flat or matte on the skin but not actually shimmery or frosted in finish. The pearls yielded a good amount of powder when used with a medium-sized powder brush (I used IT’s Plush Powder brush) without being too dusty in the container. It was violet-scented but the scent didn’t linger noticeably after it was applied.

When it came to setting makeup, the incredibly finely-milled, silky texture of the translucent powder worked particularly well with dewier foundations without taking down the finish too much like more traditional setting powders might. It seemed to extend the life of my foundation by an hour to an hour and a half, which is a little less than a typical setting powder does for me (gets me to about 10-hour of solid wear from my base makeup).

There was a “Rainbow Pearls” that was launched a few years ago (also called Summer Edition), and the two are not the same–this year’s iteration is more neutral and translucent with less sparkle/shimmer.
