Guerlain, for years, has had a connection with my feelings of being happy, healthy radiance, freshness, and special. And what could be the best time to feel it other than spring. Spring brings with it a new life, new inspirations, new ideas, and new makeup, yes. Guerlain Spring 2018 collection, named ‘Meteorites Glow With Love' is all about radiance and complexion perfection. The collection is very stunning. It consists of KissKiss LoveLove Lipsticks in 5 shades, Meteorites Heart Shape Glow Shaping-Strobing Palette, and Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters in 3 shades. I will be reviewing the KissKiss LoveLove Lipsticks in shades 570 Coral and 571 Beige, Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters in all 3 shades.
KissKiss LoveLove Lipstick
KissKiss LoveLove Lipstick is described as the perfect blend of color and luminosity which delivers flawless coverage to offer a vibrant, satiny finish with impeccable hold. The formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid spheres, mango butter, and Commiphora Oil. They all help in keeping the lips hydrated, plump, soft, and comfortable.
The packaging of the lipstick is so beautiful. And, as we approach Valentine's day, in a pink case with rainbow accents. The lipstick bullet is in the shape of a heart. It is designed to hug your lips in the right shape of a cupid's bow. The lipstick has a subtle vanilla and red berries fragrance which fades away in some time.
The lipsticks are very comfortable to wear and the pigment is nice, not intense. My personal preference is sheer or medium pigment for routine, and these sit in my preference. The staying power is good, 3 to 4 hours without drinking or eating anything. The formula did not dry my lips. The packaging is stunning, so I will have one in my handbag and other on my vanity.
Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters
Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters are color correctors to correct skin tone imperfections while giving radiance and rejuvenating effect. They are based on the principle of Colorimetry. The principle states that two complementary colors cancel each other out when they are layered. Thus, three-color correctors from Guerlain are capable of effectively neutralizing minor skin flaws, dark circles, dark spots, or redness.
There are three shades available in these, namely, Rose, Vert, and Abricot.
- Vert or Green – helps to neutralize redness
- Pink – helps to refresh dull complexions
- Abricot – helps to erase areas of shadow and minor dark spots. And also offset the color blue to counter dark circles
The key ingredients include Myrrh resin extract for radiance and tone tired skin. The anti-wrinkle peptides for wrinkle repair and correction effect. Centella Asiatica for soothing, and hibiscus fruit to plump and hydrate skin.
Target and correct complexion flaws with the “Tone-Touring” technique, applying 1, 2, or 3 correcting shades. Pink is applied to the forehead and along the top of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin, and cupid’s bow. Green is applied to the cheeks and the wings of the nose. Apricot is applied above and below the eyes, or to the lip contour to erase shadowy areas and create the impression of volume.
My Thoughts on Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters
Coming to the Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters, I am a fan of anything Meteorites from the brand. I still have my first jar of Meteorites that I bought a few years back. I buy the limited edition ones every year as a collector. They are the best when it comes to Meteorites and the Terracotta Bronzing powders, so no doubt about these two. So the Meteorites CC Glow Color Correcting Highlighters give radiance along with correcting the problem areas depending on the skin's concern. The packaging is in a shiny sleek tube. It has a rotating end which when rotated clockwise dispenses product from the brush side.
I have tried all of them. As a tired mommy of two, I am always in need of complexion refresh and to look awake. I always make sure to have a nice base, first layering my skincare and then a primer followed by makeup. The primer I love and use every day is Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold. The formulas of these Highlighters are fluid yet very smooth. Above all, they blend in easily with the skin, evens out the skin, and gives a radiant finish.
Overall, stunning collection for spring 2018.
