Guerlain is known for its Météorites, loose powder created in the form of multi-coloured pearls. To celebrate its 30th birthday, Météorites has created a new luminous harmony that delicately warms up the complexion. The Guerlain Météorites Birthday Candle Pearls illuminate your skin with a soft, diffuse light, just like the flattering glow of a candle.
Being a fan of the Météorites, this anniversary edition of the classic pearls is a must-have in my vanity. How can anyone resist the sweet pink case with beautiful gold, pink and champagne/white pearls?
The Birthday Candle Pearls, as many have tried and tested, mentioned that this did not work for them. On the contrary, I quite like this one as compared to a lot of the past Limited Editions. This set of pearls is not meant to provide an obvious in-your-face kind of effect, but instead, brightens up your complexion with a subtle glow, like that of a flickering candle. With 3 kinds of coloured pearls, the powder creates a slightly warm harmony for the skin.
- Gold Pearls – to fight dullness
- Pink Pearls – to reveal glow
- Champagne and White Pearls – to reflect the light
If you were wondering what are the pearls made of, they are actually developed with Guerlain’s Stardust technology in which diamond powder is encapsulated in micro-spheres that creates a soft-focus perfecting halo. Light-correcting nacres harmoniously blend together to also give you a perfectly tailored luminosity when you apply the extra-soft powder onto your skin. You can visibly see that the right side of my fist is much brighter and it has a soft, subtle glow as compared to the bare left side.
The beautiful soft pearls are housed in a birthday case inspired by the first 1987 Météorites case. The sweet pink case is embossed with little white scalloped details which makes this a collectors’ item. As you open up the can, you’ll be greeted with a delicate violet fragrance which is inimitable and totally addictive. I love how the pearls smell.
I’m not here to only sing praises for this beauty. Amidst the wonders it does for the skin, I find that this particular edition creates a lot of powder. I was engulfed in a whiff of powder when I first opened the lid, which was surprising as most of the other editions weren’t like that. All in all, I really enjoy touching up with this as well because it makes my skin glow in the pink of health!
Create yourself and be gorgeous! XOXO, Roanna.
