This is the second installment of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusive online haul. A limited edition for Summer 2015, Guerlain Meteorites Rainbow Pearls is stunning beyond words. Between want vs. need, obviously it’s more of the former, particularly amongst collectors of this iconic brand.

Elegantly packaged in lightweight white metal tin and lavishly adorned with Guerlain’s signature floral design and stamped name, including the distinctive tiare fragrance which is certainly an inviting aroma to my olfactory cells, these pearls illuminate the face sans glitter critter.
It comes with a powder puff which I don’t use; instead I revel in wonderment using a large powder brush, and with big smile on my face, I apply it all over ala-Cinderella. Fairy-tale like, because why not. Fairy godmother reminds you that these pearls aren’t treated to be as setting powder, and yes I wholeheartedly agree. Because in my real world experience, it’s more of a finishing touch. Think your foundation is too matte? Feeing bleh? Looking sick? lightly brush these and you’ll be wowed with subtle luminosity vis-a-vis brightening effect. The colors are created to work in harmony: green to camouflage redness, coral for glow, yellow to brighten, white to diffuse light, champagne to illuminate, and hot pink to rejuvenate.
You know I’m a Guerlain fan so bottom line is pretty much obvious, run and buy if you happen to see this in store!
