Guerlain Meteorites Pearls review

products c/o of Guerlain: Meteorites Baby Glow Touch / Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls / makeup brush (so soft!! Love!!)

Guerlain is celebrating 30 years of their fabulous illuminating, and color-correcting Meteorites Pearls. To celebrate, they have introduced a special birthday edition of the famous Guerlain Meteorites Pearls for 2017. This special edition offers the same, well-loved Meteorites Pearls in a beautiful birthday package which looks so pretty on a vanity. This special edition is named the “Guerlain Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls.” Love!

How pretty are these pearls!! I tend to prefer wearing powder alone, without foundation. I am prone to acne, so I only wear foundation for special occasions. My daily beauty routine consists of concealer over blemishes, blush, and powder. Although I have always admired Guerlain’s Meteorites Pearls from afar, I hadn’t tried them before. I was so thrilled to have the chance to try them out. I am hooked!

I used this beautiful pink makeup brush to apply the pearls. The brush is luxurious and soft; I need to get the blush version! This brush glides over the beautiful pearls, and helps apply the powder evenly across my face. I love the uplifting, illuminating look the powder offers me. This is my new go-to powder for my daily beauty routine! I love this pretty, pink, special edition casing. My daughters are already eyeing it in hopes of snagging it from me, but I have a good hiding place where they can’t find it. haha

How cute is this on-to-go Meteorites Baby Glow stick? This is a great highlighter in a compact package which fits nicely into my purse for touch-ups during the day; or for travel. I don’t want to throw my pearls into my suitcase, so this stick is perfect to use in lieu of the pearls while traveling. Love!

This whole collection is my new addiction. I highly recommend adding it to your routine! You can find the limited edition Guerlain Meteorites Pearls online here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Laura Mercier’s new “Luxe Brush Set” for the holiday 2013 season is nothing short of amazing! This luxurious brush set not only has all the make-up brushes you need on a daily basis, it has a detachable case inside which leaves plenty of room for the using the case as a clutch! How perfect is that!!!

I absolutely adore the case. The deep chocolate brown color and faux stingray texture offers a beautiful classic look which can be worn for years. The case is a hard box, so it acts like a hard box clutch which makes it easy to wear casually, as shown above, or paired with a dress for evening occasions.

Since Laura Mercier’s Luxe Brush Set comes in a beautiful handbag/case, it is perfect for traveling! You can easily fit the brush set, jewelry and make-up inside the case when tucking it into your suitcase. When you arrive at your destination simply remove the brush set and it’s zipper case along with anything you stored inside for travel and voila! You have a beautiful clutch! Love it!

Laura Mercier’s Luxe Brush Set will make the perfect gift this holiday season; for a loved one or you! The Luxe brush Set by Laura Mercier is priced at $125 ( a $26 value!) and can be found online here and here.

Happy Holidays! xoxo Cathy
