Review: Guerlain Météorites Teint Powder Compact

Hey guys
Todays post is a review of Guerlain Météorites Teint Powder Compact
that was sent to me by the lovely people at Debenhams
and a bit of a fotd while we are at it :)

I've wanted to try any of the Guerlain meteorites poweders for so so long.
I remember my Nan having the Voyage compact when I was little and I always admired it!

It comes in a lovely little velvet pouch
and as it's the compact rather than the loose powder/balls its super easy to take with you places.

The packaging is really cute,
the pattern is classic Guerlain but with a modern twist
obviously it's not as luxurious as the Voyage compact,
but it still feels really good quality.

I chose shade 01 Rose as I am super pale,
and it's perfect for my skin tone.
As you can see I've worn down the pattern, as I've used it pretty much every day for 3 weeks
so it's had a thorough test!

Here is a swatch,
on bare skin there is not really a lot to see,
it's pale skin toned, with an ever so slight shimmer.
It it more matte than I had imagined, 
especially compared to the meteorites shimmer balls I've tried.
I really like the combo of mainly matte with a tiny bit of shimmer
as it works really well to set your foundation,
giving you a finish that is slightly glowy without being glittery or too shimmery.

Here is what it looks like on, on top of my foundation with some bronzer aswell.
I used it all over my face with my kabuki, adding a little extra on my eye bags!
It only has a very slight colour but it works fantastically well in comination with your foundation
to create a flawless look.


Benefit That Gal as my primer

Lancome Tient Idole 24H foundation in shade 005 (palest)
mixed with a little of Maybelline's bb cream in light
with a squirt of Mac strobe liquid
 (to make the Lancome foundation less high coverage and a little more glowy)
to set and finish my foundation

With the Mac Wonderwoman Mineralise Skin finish in Pink Power as Bronzer

For my eyes I used the Soap and Glory Eyeshadow quad in  brown/neutral
a Brown no 7 eyeliner
and a miniature Clinique mascara

On my lips I used a Clinique chubby stick in Oversized Orange

Overall I'm really pleased with the product,
It works really well, and I would choose it over anything else I own to set my foundation.
The smell is quite strong, but I like it 
(but it is something to consider if you are funny about that kind of thing)
It's quite pricey but I think it's worth the money
especially if you can ask for it as a birthday / Christmas present.

Have you tried any of the Guerlain Compacts?
