Obsessed - Guerlain 'Meteorites Bubble' Blush

Often (if not always) when I go for Holidays gifts shopping, I end up buying so many for myself.

My latest find is Guerlain 'Meteorites Bubble' Blush (42$ US).

"It is a limited-edition cream blush formulated to instantly melt into your skin, leaving you with a satiny finish and a delicate violet scent" - Nordstrom.com.

I'm usually not very good with applying cream blushes, but this blush is something else. Most of the make up artists recommend the cream blush to be used for the winter, cold months or the very dry climates. It should blend into your skin and keep it moist and gives this fresh-off-the-slopes flush. The 'Meteorites Bubble' Blush comes as a part of the Météorites Blossom Collection which will be available in Spring 2014. 

That's how Guerlain describes the new revived Météorites Blossom Collection
"A cloud of coloured powders… Tangy pinks, delicate blues and crisp greens sing the praises of young ladies. Here… Amazing springtime muses, coloured powders with a sweet violet scent illuminate the complexion and whisper bursts of laughter… And there… A cloud of coloured beads sprinkles pink arpeggios on delicate cheekbones… Last spring verses for the Morning Glory… Pastel or mint eyelids. Strawberry or apricot syrup lips. Amusing sweets for a heart-coloured bouquet. Guerlain presents Météorites Blossom, a spring fable, a story of light, a dream in full colour…"


I still didn't get the Métérorites Perles De Poudre but it's on my wish list. I've used the old edition of the pearls and I absolutely loved them. A subtle blend of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with corrective coloured pearls – yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light – they light up the face in an illuminating and corrective halo to give endless radiance.

The limited-edition, 
violet-scented Météorites Cream Blush comes in two vibrant shades that instantly brighten dull skin. Pink (#01) is a delicate, baby pink shade and Cherry (#02) is brighter, cheerful fuchsia. I was afraid that the more colorful Cherry will be too much for my quite light skin tone, so I got the more subtle baby pink (#01). It blends perfectly and compliment the fair tone without being too understated. I have to try the Cherry (#02) at the store, before I venture and buy it. But I'm sure it will stay amazing on darker skin tones.


What makes this violet-scented blush unique is not just the two vibrant shades that instantly brighten the skin, but the applicator itself. You can apply the 'Meteorites Bubble' Blush with just any makeup tool - cream blush/foundation brush, sponge, fingertips... Even straight from the container, the rounded top effortlessly glides over your apples, no germs, no make up tools. "For a revived and mischievous complexion, apply this blush directly on the skin."

Some might say the packaging looks somewhat cheap, not your usual luxurious Guerlain feel, but I loved how compact and small it is. You can sneak the white and silver, lip balm-like container into any size hand bag for a quick retouch. Absolutely adorable and convenient. Once applied the blush feels and looks more like powder and stays well through most of the day.



Verdict: An absolute must in every girl's bag.


The entire Guerlain Météorites Blossom Collection will be available this Spring 2014


If this one comes on the expensive side, you can try these blushes as well.

NARS tried and tested and I absolutely love it. I'm using the Powder Blush in Orgasm (29$ US) and the Cream Blush in Penny Lane (29$ US).

Another good option is MAC Cream Blush, I've used at one point Ladyblush (27.99$ US).
