It’s spring! Well, not really, but it is at the beauty counters, as the spring collections drop this month. Guerlain’s spring 2019 collection is all pastel-prettiness, with a beautiful highlighter powder at the heart of it.
The Météorites Highlighter Duo (£45) is lovely – and who doesn’t love a highlighter these days?! This one unites holographic pink and lilac, which perfectly capture the light and create a fresh and easy-to-use strobing effect.
The ultra-fine powder becomes creamy under the fingertips, and blends over the curves of the face easily. It is quite a shimmery thing, so be careful with this – too much highlighter is NOT a good look.
Carrying on with the pastel theme, there are five new shades of KissKiss (£29.50), and two of those are holographic pastels for highlighter addicts. The other three shades are variations of satiny pink.For this collection the lipsticks are etched with starts and crescent moons.
There are three Météorites Pressed Powders (£42) to choose from – Light, Medium, and Golden. Each of these lovely compacts has four shades in it. The famous pearls reinvent themselves in a harmony of fourshades that enhance every skin tone with just the right dose of light.The matte shades correct, while the iridescent shade gives tailor-made luminosity.
With anti-shine action, this new-generation formula mattifies while preserving hydration. The blurring texture reduces the appearance of pores and imperfections.
Finally, there is the Coloured Kit (£38), which is a wee bit odd in my opinion, but it is lovely. It has eyeshadow and brow powder in it, and the illuminating base preps and lights up the eyes, and the plum powder duo intensifies them, and dresses up the brows with a twist – there is glitter involved here.
