Guerlain Météorites Blossom Collection


As you might have already realized looking at the Spring looks of the likes such as Dior, Lancôme or Chanel, this season it is all about soft, pastel and very feminine shades. This post is dedicated to GUERLAIN‘s Météorites Blossom Collection which is probably one of the most beautiful and wearable ones this season. In the French Maison’s press release it says “a spring fable by Guerlain“, so please enjoy this little makeup fairytale that tells you the story of light and freshness with a radiant Natalia Vodianova as the princess of the story.
To the springtime muse in you, enjoy!


Light-Revealing Pearls of Powder

In 1828, Guerlain, the magician of powders, enchanted the beauty world and illuminated the royal and imperial courts with its radiance. A stroke of its brushes revived the complexions of princesses, the Empresses Sissi and Eugénie, and even Queen Victoria, lighting them up with joy. This unique know-how was so precious that it led to a multicolored big bang in 1987: the marvelous Météorites, small and perfectly round pearls whose happy and varied colors give a heavenly glow to the complexion. A powder? No, all powders! Each of these intangible little pastel beads has its own function and helps beautify the skin. Celestial bodies in pink for a healthy glow, pale green to correct redness, delicate mauve to catch the light and highlighting white and gold for a boost of radiance. In one swish of the brush, they work their magic to bathe the skin in light. Oh, and the last and now legendary detail: their delicious violet fragrance has a loyal following. More than 25 years later, like the original creation, these delightful and magical little pearls are delicately shaped by hand. This enchanting craftsmanship is mastered by only four people in the world… So rare! Now more than ever before, the Météorites write a new chapter of their legend: a constellation of colors that revives light and absolute radiance.

Guerlain Spring 2014 Ambiance Météorites

This season, Guerlain launches its iconic Météorites in three different shades that adapt to every skin tone. Available in Clair (pure light for fair skin), Medium (tone-on-tone light for medium skin) and Doré (warm light for golden skin).

Guerlain Les Météorites for Spring 2014

BEAUTY TIP –  How to apply the Météorites

1. SCULPT: use Terracotta powder to define the facial contours and the area below the cheekbones. On each side, trace a 3 starting from the hairline, from the forehead to below the cheekbone, then from the facial contour towards the chin. Blend inwards towards the centre of the face.

2. HIGHLIGHT: with your Météorites harmony, illuminate the curved areas of the face. Trace a G from the centre of the forehead towards the top of the cheekbone, then from the bridge of the nose towards the chin. For a dazzling and more iridescent effect, try the Météorites Travel Touch.

Guerlain Holiday 2011 – Belle de Nuit

Belle de Nuit

Guerlain‘s inspiration behind their beautiful Holiday 2011 makeup look “Belle de Nuit” is truly worth reading it and might leave you intrigued. Enjoy!

“During the 1920’s and 1930’s, pioneers in aviation accomplished unimaginable feats and these brave pilots became instant, worldwide heroes. It was during this revolutionary period, in 1933, that Jacques Guerlain composed the legendary perfume Vol de Nuit, meaning “Night Flight,” as a tribute to the most famous women aviators of his time. Named for the second book written by his close friend Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Guerlain’s creation was a bold oriental fragrance that served as ode to all fearless women. Comprised of woody, vanilla and powdery iris notes, Vol de Nuit was for the woman who laughs in the face of fear, for whom nothing is impossible.


For Guerlain’s Holiday 2011 make-up collection Belle de Nuit, Creative Director Oliver Échaudemaison takes his inspiration from this legendary fragrance. Evoking the changing shades of the night sky, he created daring tones that are both dark and dramatic with mesmerizing iridescent accents. With lacquered and blue-green details, the products are encased within boxes that reveal the blue and black zebra motif found on the original Vol de Nuit box design. Belle de Nuit is a sophisticated and enchanting limited edition collection that is as fleeting as nightfall.”

Let’s take a closer look at those very luxurious limited-edition pieces:


iG041211 - Vol De Nuit - PSD

Vol de Nuit Poudre Iridescente Parfumée – Face & Body – CHF 111.-

The star product is a combination of a luminous powder and a fragrance that wraps the skin with a veil of iridescent shimmer while being deliciously fragranced by the notes of Vol de Nuit. The universal pale pink shade is accentuated with blue-green and silvery hues to leave the face, body and hair sparkling. The bottle reinterprets that of the original Vol de Nuit, which was revolutionary at the time by being the first to combine glass and metal.



G041212 - Meteorites Perles De Nuit - PSD

Météorites Perles de Nuit Poudre Lumière – Eclat Pur – CHF 74.-

The cult favorite is back and reinvented this holiday season. Although the formula remains untouched, Météorites Perles de Nuit leaves the face glowing and radiant with a new tailor-made harmony. Five perfectly smooth pearls correct, illuminate and even out the skin. It is composed of pink pearls to capture light, white to illuminate the complexion, gold to reflect light, orange to boost radiance and silver to add shimmer without whitening the skin.


G041213 - Parure De Nuit - PSD

Parure de Nuit – Poudre Pressée & Blush – CHF 97.-

Parure de Nuit is a face powder and blush in one and uses pale pink, white, deep pink and blue green to harmonise skin tone. It comes with a super-soft brush so you can softly sweep across all the shades for face illumination. So pretty!


G041214 - FAP4 Les Ombres De Nuit - PSD

Ecrin 4 Couleurs N° 10 Les Ombres de Nuit – CHF 80.-

Guerlain has developed a new color harmony made especially for night owls that creates smoky, seductive and spellbinding eyes. An iridescent texture of green, blue and grey pearlescent particles release luminous color with an extremely metallic finish and is combined with an extra-matte black shadow for a precise, intense liner effect.


G041215 - Rouge automatique - Nuit D'amour - PSD

Rouge Automatique – Le Rouge Hydratant Longue Tenue – CHF 54.-

The thirties icon Rouge Automatique is back and is more modern and attractive than ever. The Art Déco inspired case opens and closes at the flick of a hand revealing two new shades for holiday. Seductive, yet innocent, in Rouge Automatique, Guerlain has created a second-skin texture allowing for long-lasting wear.

Two limited edition shades:
169 Flirt d’un Jour: A soft and luminous pink, evocative of passionate kisses.
170 Nuit d’Amour: A surprising black red that reveals an intense plum color on the lips (above).


Opening a Guerlain product feels like opening a present, so have fun indulging yourself in pure luxury. The collection is available now.
