Guerlain Meteorites Illuminating Pressed Powder

Wednesday, September 12, 2012
ive been meaning to review this stuff for the longest time now,i have the Guerlain Meteorites Mythic the ball ones and ive been loving it to bits,so i decided to purchase this cause honestly i was having a hard time getting the product on the brush,what i did is i crushed the balls so that i can just swipe the brush easily inside but then came the fall outs,so to solve my dilemma of having it in a ball form or a loose form i got this!....pressed ...
DSCN0165-1
i cant find Guerlain's Product description anymore..so im just gonna go ahead and jump with my review

DSCN0168-1
ive used it quite a few times hence the flat circles,its more domed when its new.

Photobucket
me with bourjois healthy mix serum foundation on..

Photobucket
with Guerlain Meteorites On top of the Bourjois
as i see it,this stuff mattifies my face and at the same time brightens it,makes it look more awake, on this photo i applied 2 swipes of Guerlain meteorites

didn't bother swatching the product,its not goin to show up that much anyways,since it blends well with my skin tone.

Photobucket
products:
  • Guerlain Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 53
  • Guerlain Meteorites Illuminating Pressed Powder
  • The Face Shop Brow Powder Brown
  • Maybelline Lipstick BonBon Pink
  • Kryolan Camouflage Concealer in D4
Photobucket
this will not help control your oils,but it masks the oiliness of my face due to the illuminating effect that it gives..

if youre gonna buy it cause you need a highlighter this might not be a great product for that,imho,for me it doesnt give me that sheen that i want when the light hits my face,its quite subtle for that.

here's another before and after:

Photobucket
with MUFE Mat velvet Plus Foundation on (click here for review) topped it with Kryolan Dermacolor Setting Powder(click here for review)

Photobucket
with Guerlain Illuminating Pressed Powder on.

i love how this easily awakens my face,although for those who would like to purchase this,when i first got it i got so excited and i kept on adding more and more layer of this on my face cause i cant see the "illuminating" effect,and i ended up looking ghastly on photos and my face felt a bit tight,in the end with the right tool and a light hand this will definitely do the job..

Texture:

Smooth,fine powder.semi matte finish with a touch of glow.

Smell-
it has a very subtle hint of floral-y/freshly cleaned scent,pretty much like the same as the meteorite in ball form

size-
10 grams net wt .35 OZ

Packaging-
I love the Packaging!if compared to the Meteorite balls packaging this one's much better
Plastic Twist cap tub,its bulky yes,but its not heavy at all.

Availability-
Got it at Marrionaud in MOA(they dont have marrionaud now)

Great for:
who has dull skin
an instant glow from within,not that highlight glow.
who wants a brighter healthy complexion without looking like youve tried.

Sunday, September 09, 2012
So eye primers? since it's been introduced,i think most makeup junkees owns one,ive been on the search for the perfect eyeprimer for me...I thought it was the Urban Decay one,but sadly my lids gets irritated whenever i put it on,ive tried their original,their eden,but every 3rd day of using it,my lids flares up.(click here),so here i am again trying out a new primer!

RSCN2302
i got the trio deluxe primers from tarte to try them out first.

i like the squeeze type small nozzle packaging,it dispenses the right amount of product,and since the formula or texture is quite fluidy much like a lotion its not gonna clump up andit did not give me a hard time squeezing it out of the tube..*ehem Urban Decay Professional Size EyePrimer*

Photobucket

this is definitely not like most primer that ive used,the texture is very different to Urban Decay primer Potions and Etude House Proof ten Eyeprimer.Think about a regular moisturizer,that's how this primer feels like,its creamy,and very easy to spread or blend.

On the Road:
Photobucket
Freshly Applied:
Mad Minerals Eyeshadows in Trust on lid and sandstorm on the crease area.

Photobucket
after six hours or so.
i can definitely see some creasing.

Photobucket
freshly applied:
i applied a tiny amount of a cream eyeshadow on top of the primer just to make my shadows pop.

Photobucket
after 5-6 hours on-
i was expecting it to crease by the end of the day,cause most cream eyeshadows do crease on my lids,with the exemption of Mac PaintPots.

Photobucket
freshly applied

Photobucket
after 6-7 hours or so..

Photobucket

Photobucket
After 9-10 hours on a hot humid day then at around 3pm onwards,it rained,so i was soaked,still am happy that my eyeshadow and liner didnt completely fade off

Photobucket
freshly applied

Photobucket

After 9-10 hours
creasing was seen at 7 hours,look at how oily my skin is....

i have a love hate relationship with this eye primer,sometimes it holds my eye makeup without creasing,and sometimes it doesnt(as you can tell on my photos)

i also use this as a concealer primer,since it has a creamy texture,it doesnt make the area dry or tight,i kinda feel like it moisturizes it somehow.

Texture:
This is Creamy sorta like my regular facial moisturizer

Blendabilty-
Its very Easy to Spread

Smell-
faint to none

size-
deluxe primer- 0.09fl oz
full size-0.39 fl oz

Packaging-
Squeeze type tube,nozzle.

Availability-
Sephora
StuffInStyle(where i got it)

Great for:
those who have semi oily lids
if your lids is much oilier than mine i think this will not hold your shadows that well.

I love my aztec healing clay,and theyre almost at the same level,im enjoying this mask so much without the vinegar smell and me having to mix.

Loreal Nail Polish in sweet chiffon
very nice muted midtone pink polish

Stridex Sensitive Aloe Pads-
this is pretty much just like a cotton pad soak with skin healing stuff,i love how fresh and cool my skin feels after applying this.

Emu Oil Plus-
i got this at Barenaturals,for no more than 400+ but not more than 500php.it healed my skin so well,from my previous allergic reaction from SHULAMMITE carrot soap..(GGrrrr)

Skin MD Naturals with SPF-
i love Aloe infused products,this is what kept my skin hydrated,my skin felt flakey and dry and itchy for like how many weeks,and im glad that aside from its moisturizing properties it also has Aloe Vera.

Photobucket
Maybelline Lipstick in Delicate Pink-
this has been my go to lipstick ever since i was in college,i love the tint that it gives my lips after it fades.

in2it brow powder-
i use this everyday..and i love it..nuff said =D

Mac Girlboy Browset-
and to make my brows a tad lighter ,it also keeps my unruly long brow hairs in place.

Barry M Lip Paint in Vibrant Pink 62

Sunday, September 02, 2012
Here's another lip swatch for you ladies,and just to let you know,i love Lipsticks!its sorta like one of my MUST have,i mean i never leave home without carrying atleast 2-3 shades with me.It's my to go makeup on those days where im too lazy to put on my foundations,eyeshadows etc..

Photobucket
Barry M Lip Paint in Vibrant Pink,price where i bought it was at Php 410.00.

before i purchase this i was debating to either get this one or the shocking pink,since i was looking for a lipshade that might be a dupe for Mac CYY,sadly i think i got the wrong one,nevertheless i still love the shade that i got.

Photobucket
Define Neon? it looks soo damn bright on the tube..I LOVE IT!..

One of my Co Workers saw me wearing this and ask me what it is..i handed it to her and she said,that she'd never heard of  "BARRY MANILOW" lipstick...i cant help but to laugh..(for those of you who dont know who he is,you can ask GOOGLE..but he's a famous guy singer way back) cause even i dont know what the "M" means,so i guess we'll stick with Manilow..for now.

swatches
Photobucket
with flash.One swipe..and see how beautifully pigmented this is.

Photobucket
without flash

i wear them:
Photobucket
with neutral shadows.

Photobucket
Paired it with a Pink Blush.

Lasting Power is above average.For me that's a must for vibrant lipsticks.i hate it when they rim,i mean when i see that the lipstick has faded on the inner part of my lips and make me look like ive just lined the outer part.Looks crazy!


Texture
Its matte,quite drying on the lips,so a lipbalm is a must,prior to applying this.But i like how it sits on my lips.

Smell-
very faint to no scent.cant even tell what it smells like.

packaging-
Regular Matte Black Lipstick Tube.

Size-

Availability-
i bought mine at http://www.facebook.com/hoopsandloops


Great for those:
who wants Pigmented Pink Lipstick
Sorta like Neon sheen
