Guerlain Holiday 2018. Meteorites………..Electric Pearl

Hi Everyone,

The holiday makeup is here. Yes! The holiday releases are the best time for buying new beauty products.

There’s plenty of glitter and glam going on and I love it. The limited edition collections are just fantastic and are that extra bit special to. They make great gifts.

Guerlain holiday Météorites are no exception. They are a great finely milled powder and are very unique and special in their own right. I do own quite a few.

Over the years, i have bought or have been gifted some amazing colours. Warm purples and browns, correcting green and pink pearls and the Christmas bauble released three years ago was absolutely stunning. I didn’t think i could see anything new in these little beauties. Wrong!

Electric Pearl.

This year; Guerlain have released the light revealing pearls in their usual shaped tin. This is gold in colour with a plain lid. (I guess they are cutting back a little because usually the lids are quite ornate). The powder puff is also gone. I do love what is in the tin itself though.

The pearls come in 4 shades and varying sizes. White, pale beige, light gold and dark bronze. All have silver and gold micro shimmers except the beige, which has a satin finish. They are beautiful and can be used individually as a highlighter or; all over the face.

They do give the face a slight flush of colour and are very light reflecting. I use them where i want an extra bit of light down the centre of my face. They can be used as a subtle highlighter as well. The finish is great for a dull complexion or over a matte foundation.

They have that gorgeous violet scent, which is the signature scent of all météorites. The scent does disappear on the skin.

Comparison.

I did compare them to the Météorites I bought in the Guerlain holiday 2015 collection because, they look very similar without the bronze ball.

The white star does not contain silver shimmer like the white ball in this years collection. The gold pearl is a touch brighter and more yellow than the previous version. The beige satin pearl is exactly the same in both météorites.

The previous bauble; (above left and below) offers more of a pale strobe highlighting finish to the cheekbones and other high points on the face whereas; the electric pearls offers a touch of warmth with shimmer. There is enough of a difference to warrant both purchases and; TBH, i am never disappointed with these little beauties.Final Verdict.

I wish the gold tin was a bit special because it is a holiday/collectors piece however, the pearls are beautiful as per usual. 

I love the inclusion of a bronzing pearl for the very first time. This makes sense because even though Guerlain are famous for their amazing perfumes, they are also famous for their amazing bronzing powders to. They do give colour to my fair skin tone.

Once again, a beautiful addition to the holiday season and collection from Guerlain; (right). The lipsticks are beautiful and there is also a large eyeshadow and face powder palette. I did not buy this because i am unable to wear eyeshadows for work and i already own many.

What are your holiday favourites for 2018? Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉

    The Christmas things are sort of starting to happen here but so slow!
    Honestly – Guerlain is being stupid … women love those balls and the Christmas Edition Must be special … not having a puff or the tin looking extra special is silly … I bet their sales will be down this year.
    I know you love them and will buy them but honestly – packaging is not that expensive for big companies and it makes all the difference in sales.
    I am waiting for the Dior Christmas things but …. I do hope they are in soon as I am going to the city next Thursday and that is where the Big department stores are …. so my theory is – they will have everything!
    I am not holding my breath Mandy. LOL

      I know what you mean about packaging Melinda. When Guerlain released that bauble, it sold out within weeks. They used to do a beautiful spray powder of their iconic perfumes at Christmas too. I own a couple of them. They are absolutely stunning. Its such a shame. I must admit, i did by the meteorites because the balls are beautiful this time and some could argue that, its the product which is important. I still think the packaging is equally important at Christmas. Its a special time of the year.
      Chanel have got it so right this year. Their eyeshadows and highlighter are stunning. I am posting later on today on them. I wasn’t going to bother because i didn’t think they looked special however, the powders are incredible.
      I sometimes still wished i got to wear my full makeup for work because the Dior quints are lovely and the jeweled lipsticks are too. Thats all i liked from Dior this year. The brown eyeshadows are stunning in the quints. The darker brown shade has a hint of purple in it too. I had to sit on my wallet to stop myself from buying it. I also had to run away from the Chanel No 5 in the red bottle. It’s a real collectors piece. They say they are never going to repeat it again. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!
