Guerlain Happy Glow Meteorites BlushGuerlain Happy Glow Meteorites Blush ($54.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and silver sparkle. The pink powder seemed like a soft matte–not really shimmery but not so matte that it appeared flat on the skin–but there were distinct sparkles on the skin.
It’s a new, limited edition pressed blush from the brand that’s supposed to work as a “blush and a highlighter.” The formula is supposed to “lightly sculpt and illuminate” the complexion, which I suspect is code for not-the-most-pigmented-blush-ever. It comes in a soft pink compact, which seemed a little lighter and “cheaper” to me than their usual compacts (but it seemed sturdy and functional), and the powder has the brand’s signature violet scent. It had sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium) that was incredibly blendable, as the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and smooth to the touch.
Between the coverage level and the lightness of the color itself, it is going to be more suitable for lighter complexions and someone who doesn’t want a lot of shine from their highlighter but doesn’t mind visible sparkle. I’m light-medium in skin tone, and I get only a hint of pink on my skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.
