This Spring, Guerlain celebrates the secret to a woman’s ethereal glow with the joyful, luminous and colorful Spring Glow Collection. It’s feminine and pink, and as with everything Guerlain, stunning. Let’s take a closer look…
The Guerlain Spring Glow Collection includes:
KissKiss Lipstick in Darling Baby and All About Pink
My thoughts: As someone who has had a crush on Guerlain for as far back as I can remember, this is another gorgeous collection. I’ve grown up wearing this line and love that with each collection and season, the brand is injecting a sense of fun and youth.
When you first open the Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo and see the word “Smile” embossed into the tablet, you do! I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but it does help with blush placement, after all. The pigmentation and color payoff in this blush is beautiful; silky smooth, it just glides over the contours of your face. The “Enjoy” Eyeshadow is equally good, in a neutral khaki color, with matching water-resistant liner.
And then there are the Météorites Perfecting Primer and Powder (Compact or Pearles). The Météorites Primer is exquisite, really. The gel formula is pure magic: it’s both matte and radiance-imparting. The Météorites Perfecting Primer luminizes skin while perfecting. Honestly, there are some days when I just put the Primer on and skip makeup altogether.
Of course, my holy grail finishing powder is and will always be the Météorites, whether Pearls or the gorgeous new Voyage of Pearls Compact. This Spring, the Météorites Voyage of Pearls Compact takes on a new look, with compressed micro-pearl colors that illuminate and color-correct. This compact is equal parts Houdini and Kryptonite, because once you use it, there’s really no going back. This is simply the best face powder I’ve ever used, and though I’ve tried many, I always go back to Météorites. The effect is luminous and radiant, while still managing to keep oil at bay flawlessly. The compact is an investment piece, and it is refillable, which I like. The outside case is well-executed in white, raised enamel.
