Two weeks ago, I was invited to Guerlain's spectacular event in Downtown Toronto to celebrate the 30th anniversary/birthday of their Météorites. For those of you who don't know, the Météorites are beautiful multi-colored powder pearls (literally, they look like pearls) housed in a gorgeous silver box. The pearls are scented with a light violet fragrance which adds an extra touch of femininity.
Strobing and highlighting is all the rage right now, but did you know that Guerlain was one of the original companies who started this back in 1987? The Météorites contain a secret Stardust technology - a light-creating polymer which transforms light invisible to the naked eye into a beautiful glow on the skin. These pearls contain a mix of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with different color correcting pearls which come in yellow (to counter redness), pink to refresh and mauve to add brightness.
There were cocktails and sweets at the event and as you can see from the pictures below, they were too cute and pretty to eat! I finally caved and had a macaron and a cheesecake and omg.....they were divine! That cheesecake, please .. if I had a box, I'd pack a few with me :) heh..
The ceiling was adorned with balloons that replicated the Météorites.
Guerlain also brought their talented make-up / beauty artists who took the time to give people touch-ups :) Ah, the vanity below - #goals!
Besides touch-ups, we were all gifted goodie bags that contained the Météorites primer as well as the infamous Météorites box... that was empty. What came next was the highlight of the evening - we had the chance to create a custom blend of Météorites for ourselves to address our individual desires. I wanted to add radiance to my skin and the below honestly, this blend helped me realize how great this product was. Before, I wasn't using the right shade so I didn't see the fuss about it - but after trying it, I really looked like I was airbrushed after application, I had this ethereal glow to my skin unlike any other product had given me. I strongly suggest that you give these a try! These babies, though pricey, do last you a really long time as you only need a swirl of it with your brush and its enough for your whole face.
Tip: Make sure you apply it in a G shape on your face - that way it helps to highlight all the high points of your face - the forehead, cheek, nose, cupid's bow and a bit of the chin if you want.
Thank You Guerlain for this wonderful invite and to share in this event with you!
Until next time, XO - M.
