Casting pearls before swine may be a past time that Guerlain enjoys doing on a frequent basis, but I must confess that the Summer 2010 collection of the Guerlain Meteorites Perles is luxurious, eye-catching and delicate at the same time.
The Guerlain Meterorites Perles Makeup collection houses the colorful makeup pearls in a rose-motif silver box. They come in three shades:
1. Rose Tint
2. Beige Tint
3. Gold Tint
The Eyeshadow Palette is all beiges, roses and brown tints. Called Ombres Perles, it features a white rose embossed pattern on two of the four eyeshadow pans.
The collection will also showcase two new wicked Kiss Kiss Baby lipsticks, in Cherry and Summer shades:
There will be four single color eye shadows on offer:
As well as a limited edition Powder Brush:
Would I buy this collection on first glance? I’d skip the meteorites, frankly, because I do think the originals were great to begin with. I love the Meteorites Miniatures and the original Meteorites box that was inspired by Marie Antoinette’s jewelry box. Remember, there already exists the Meteorites in the Mythic (for a translucent glow); Pink Fresh (for a rosy glow); Beige Chic (golden glow); and Perles Imperiales (pearly pink glow). The brush also is not new, so I’d skip that as well.
The only thing I would buy from this collection are the Ombres Perles eyeshadow, because I do love this mocha-rose thing that’s going on, and maybe the Kiss Kiss Baby lipsticks.
