I am so happy that I was able to create this video. I adore the Meteorites collection from Guerlain even though, I had a bit of a falling out with them. You have to understand I was still building my kit at that time ( yes, it does take years!) PLUS I went to makeup school in MUD New York in 2012. So I was trying to place my money on the right baskets. I love luxurious makeup but, I also believe that I shouldn’t get into debt because of them.
Early in my career, as a junior artist, I did a lot of fashion shows. I would open a tub of this on my table, and just as I have said in the video, I get tons of questions about them. I also had to be very careful when they were left in the open because they get to be mistaken as candies – ALL THE TIME!
I am proud to say that these pearls have been with me since Day One.
So here’s my take on these wonderful multi colored pearls from Guerlain.
I hope my demo on how the colors in the tub, when mixed, creates a skin-tone colored powder. The reason why I did this is because, people only talk about it – and hopefully, by creating a video of actually mixing the colors – it will give you a visual understanding of this product.
I forgot to mention on the video that Guerlain has a Meteorites Powder Brush – please skip from purchasing it because the last time I tried it – the quality is – so so. Go buy yourself a proper brush of a much better quality for the same price. They also release brushes together with some of the limited edition Meteorites and to my experience, although they do work, they do not last long.
I prefer to use the Hakuhodo or the Number Yachiyo brushes for the Meteorites. They are bristles are fluffy and airy, which means that it does not pick up a ton of product. So when I swirl it on the tub, it gradually picks up the pigments and layers them on the bristles evenly. If you would use a denser brush – you would end up having streaks of different colors on the face.
The permanent collection Meteorites are available for purchase at Rustan’s or at Sephora.ph. It retails for ₱3400 and ₱3500 respectively. If you need a “darker” shade of the Meteorites, it will be more likely to be available in Sephora.ph.
The Meteorites holiday collections can retail for as much as ₱4100. IF you are lucky enough to be able to purchase the holiday collections from the year prior, you can get them for a discounted rate, as much as 20% off.
And yes, I do believe that you get more value for your money with this powder.

The products I am using has worked for me and it might not necessarily work for you. Always be discerning when purchasing cosmetics or skin care products. Always read the label and the literature! Always do a patch test before you purchase a product for the first time to see that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients listed.
