Remember my Guerlain Spring 2015 Haul in California? God I miss California.
A lot of people asked for a review for the GUERLAIN Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up, so here it is! In a timely fashion as well! *pats self on back*
Of course, I didn’t take a picture of the tube(LAZY BLOGGER), but use your imagination from that collective haul pic up there and picture a tube with an airless pump. GUERLAIN Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up($58 here in Canada, which you know? Is CHEAPER than what I payed in California. I think it cost me $62 WTF) comes in 3 shades, and I got the #2 Light shade, which is the lightest. For reference at the moment I am NC15 in MAC makeup talk. And I like how they used SHEER MAKEUP in the name. Snarky Tracy Warning: We, Guerlain, don’t want you to think this is just another BB Cream! Or a Tinted Moisturizer! Say, when did Tinted Moisturizer become so taboo? Because honestly, that’s what this is. A really NICE one though!
GUERLAIN Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up Swatchy Time!
GUERLAIN Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up is supposed to be Guerlain’s signature Meteorites glow in a foundation. Just like the Guerlain Ballz, it captures and diffuses light, evens out the complexion and acts as a luminous veil on the skin. It’s hydrating, and erases signs of fatigue, and leaves your skin refreshed, invigorated, plump and radiant. YES? That’s what we wants! I don’t notice any real “sparkles” like in the Meteorites, but there’s a definite GLOW to the stuff when you look in the sun.
It has a lovely texture, and feels great when you apply. GUERLAIN Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up feels like velvet, really soft, and leaves a matte, yet glowy finish on the face. It settles a little bit into my pores around my nose, but that seems to even out after a bit of wear. It really does even out skin tone nicely as you can see, taking care of most of my redness. And it blurs any imperfections too, which as an aging beauty blogger I do appreciate!
I like Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up. I can’t stand heavy foundations anymore, and this just fits my lifestyle perfectly. It lasts about 6-8 hours on my skin by itself. I love using it as a base for a powder foundation, like MAC StudioFix or MUFE Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation in #117, which is probably my most favourite powder foundation ever. Just a light dusting with one of those and Bazinga! Flawless skin is mine! What I love most believe it or not about Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up is that it’s matte. With hot flashes and menopause all over me, matte makeup has become my new BFF. Glowy foundations and BB Creams just SLIDE right off when the heat hits. A lot of these new matte products actually work well on drier skin too! My skin is more combo lately, so something like this is exactly what I need. All the dewy, moisturizing makeup I’ve needed before has been tucked away, for when the madness of menopause ends. Hopefully soon. PLEASE. Pray for me LOL. Although, I think I’ve finally found something that helps! Stay tuned for that!
Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow Light Revealing Sheer Make Up is permanent to the line-up so no hurry to get it! In fact, I say save up some of those Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum Points and get one if you can. It’s really nice!
Ahhh, Guerlain! So expensive, but SO nice… although you know their eyeshadows are just something that I don’t really care for all that much. They’re ok, just not something I’d pay for. Any that I have, I’ve gotten for free with Optimum points. I have one palette that I adore, but any of the others are just-ok. Although, most eyeshadows at the moment would take a lot for me to pay for LOL. At the moment I’m more about skin! And skincare! And blush. ALWAYS BLUSH. It’s so funny how our makeup tastes change over the years. I use so very little eyeshadows at the moment, but 10 years ago? Was a different story for sure!
Have your makeup tastes changed as you’ve aged as well?
