“For me, happiness begins the moment you wake up. To help women feel beautiful, I created this spring collection as an antidote to the gloom and I delighted in slipping happy messages into their make-up products. Does beauty have the power to make us feel happy? I’m convinced that it does! ” Olivier Echaudemaison

Météorites pressed powder can be used as a setting powder or over the makeup to add radiance and do skin tone correction, works nicely as a touch up aid during the day. It can also be used on bare skin on the days you don’t want to apply makeup but still want some glow. I was not sure if this shade will work for me but as the powder is tranparent or I should say colorless, lightweight, and silky soft, it blends into the skin seamlessly.
I have have the Meteorites original version in same shade and it is one of most favorite powders to use for the subtle radiance while keeping my problem areas blurred.

‘In 1987, the loose powder was encapsulated into multicoloured pearls for the very first time: Météorites was born. With a brush stroke, these pearls move together to release an incredibly lightweight perfecting halo. The skin is diffused with light and glows with new radiance. ‘

Guerlain Météorites Highlighter Duo gives a light and subtle effect of the silky rosy highlighter shades. Both the shades in this duo work nicely when dry or a more intense effect when wet. The formula is pigmented, easy to apply, and blend nicely. I was under the impression it might not suit my medium skin tone but surprisingly it looks really pretty, I am all in for the spring look. The duo is nestled inside a cushion-style case and is the perfect travel companion. The packaging is designed with a mirror inside, you can touch-up your make-up any time of the day.

The sleek case features infinitely elegant curves and the lipstick itself is engraved with stars and moons, an elegant detail that evokes a promise of love greater than the stars with this springtime look. The two shades of this limited edition chic, timeless essential for a Morning Love look with a romantic touch I swatched in this post are 543 Peachy Star and 575 Lilac Moon.

I am a fan of the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation, reviewed here, since the last few years and it is one of my go-to foundation for everyday use. Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation is one of the new launches which I have been so intrigued to try this year. Since the first look of the unique foundation bottle surfaced online, it has really created an impression of uniqueness and luxury from the house. The word ‘glow’ in the name of the foundation is another plus-plus for me, I am all about the natural glow, dewy skin.

Guerlain L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation

Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation is described as a foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours. The formula combines makeup with skincare benefits of hydrating, balancing, and protecting the skin from pollution. The unique design of the bottle by world-renowned designer Mathieu Lehanneur symbolizing the subtle art of balance.

Guerlain L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation

Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation has a creamy texture that blends easily into the skin and looks very natural after application until the end of the day without caking or breaking. The formula is pigmented and one and a half pump is enough for me to have even more than medium coverage. It blends nicely with my fingers, brush, and even a sponge. I do like it better with the brush launched along with the foundation called Guerlain L’Essentiel Retractable Foundation Brush. The finish is radiant glowy skin and after a few minutes, it is more of dewy finish which I am obsessed with.

For my oily areas on the face – basically my nose and forehead, I use loose powder with a very light hand. It stays put all day with or without finishing powder. The pump bottle is really nice to work with. The finish looks very natural, like healthy supple radiant skin. With the skincare benefits in this formula, I am very positive it is keeping my skin in balance now and for the future.

Guerlain L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation

The primer base I prefer under the foundation is the Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil, reviewed here, which I religiously incorporate in my skincare routine, I am on my third bottle, it is that good. The combination works great to give the flawless radiant finish that lasts for over 10 hours on my skin. The foundation does work well with other Guerlain primers I have tested it with –
Guerlain Blurring Active Base and Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold.

For my medium skin tone with golden undertones, the closest match to my skin tone in Lingerie de Peau is 4N as I think 4W was a bit too yellow for me. I have swatched the Lingerie de Peau with the L’Essential Natural Glow Foundation in 4C, 4N, 4W. I am using 4N for both foundations, means you can easily shade match from Lingerie de Peau to the new L’Essential foundation.

Guerlain Retractable foundation brush is also designed by Mathieu Lehanneur. The design is ergonomic and makes the application of the foundation a very pleasant and gentle ritual on the skin. It goes nicely on all the areas of the face, sides of the nose, eye contour. I did not experience any streaking or demarcation lines for a natural make-up finish. I have washed the brush a few times, easy to clean, and there has been no shedding. The innovative retractable sleeve protects the soft, synthetic fibres.

Overall, I am really impressed by the formula and finish of this foundation. This foundation is absolutely worth checking out. Guerlain Beauty Products and Home Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s BayShoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.

I know I might be late to share about this candle on the blog, I had so many requests on more details on this candle since I shared it on my Instagram stories. The good thing is this candle is still available on all major retailers I have mentioned at the end of this post. Guerlain brings its expertise in perfume to the art of living with a collection of scented candles that stir the senses and brings unequaled emotion, Guerlain Winter Délice Christmas Candle is one of them.

Guerlain Winter Délice Christmas Candle

‘A warm break by the fireside during long and cold winter evenings. Nostalgic memories of the gourmet aromas of gingerbread and candied fruits. Comfort from the crackling fire, refreshed by the green notes of the pine needles, an evocation of contrasts of this festive season.’

Guerlain Winter Délice Christmas Candle

Giselle Balosso has reinvented the iconic Guerlain Bee with this limited-edition candle that celebrates the 190th Anniversary of the House. The size of the candle is 6.3 oz. The fragrance is Spicy Oriental, Gourmet, Cocooning, and festive. The notes are below:

Head notes: Armoise
Heart notes: ginger bread
Back notes: Patchouli

Some tips to use the candle: During the first use, wait until the wax is evenly consumed, all the way to the edges, before extinguishing the candle.
The wick must always remain centered. If necessary, trim it to about 0.5 cm, straighten it and center it. It is ideal for perfuming your bedroom or living room.

The packaging as you see in the pictures is beautiful, be it the outer package with the ribbon or the candle jar, perfect for gifting a loved one or for yourself. The candle jar has a heavy glass jar, dark in color. The scent to me is woodsy, smells like a fir tree and reminiscent of the holiday season. It is a gorgeous candle that will look good in any room.
