Beauty review: Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer

Thanks to my dear friend A., recently I tested this makeup base and here is what I think of it. :) Generally speaking, I love Guerlain products and the are my #1 when it comes to awesome packaging, and if I could afford, I’d be all over this brand, not just because of the great design, but because of the high quality this brand offers. I hope I’ll be able to get some stuff from them in the future. But, let’s get back to the makeup base!

As I already mentioned, Guerlain design is amazing, and this makeup base isn’t any different – this product comes in a fancy glassy bottle with a pump which is, first of all, hygienic and secondly, it’s easier for use comparing it to a jar. One pump is enough for the whole face. The bottle contains some kind of pearls which at first look decorative and you could easily be mistaken :D The formula of this base is nice, light, lightly pinkish in color with teeny tiny particles in it. It absorbs quickly and though I haven’t noticed that my skin is any smoother, it feels nice under my fingers and my foundation seattles  well above it and lasts for quite some time. The scent of this base is mild and nice. Remindes me of a body lotion or something like that. :D

Though this product is fantastic and I really liked it, the price is just less fantastic. :D I’m not sure about the price here in Croatia, but I’ve seen that it is sold for $68.00 for 30 ml (1 fl.oz.) on Sephora.com, which is, A LOT! But, that’s the problem with every single Gurlain product – the design and quality gets you, but then the price is really a huge turn off. The amount of it is okay, typical for face primers, and I think it should last some longer time, but still, the price is just a bit steep. I could get Shiseido Smoothing Veil makeup base, which is my THE makeup base, for less money and still get the same amount.

To make the long story short – if you’re into luxurious products with good quality, you might find what you need in this product. But still, try it prior buying it. And well, though I’m satisfied with this product, it won’t get 5/5 just because of the price. But if it weren’t for that – it would be 5/5!

    It surely does look impressive…and you are right with the packaging of Guerlain products…but, here in Europe is a big difference when it comes to prices. Many brands sell their products at almost double the price comparing with U.S. :(

      Yeah, I know about the difference in prices and that gets me really mad! And that’s why I avoid buying anything mid/high-end here in Croatia. :)

    Koliko često stavljaš bazu prije šminkanja?

    • beautyaddict says:

      Uvijek. Zašto? :)

      • ellast says:

        Ne znam zbog čeka sam uvik mislila da je to nešto za “posebne prigode”. I ništa ti ne iritira lice?

        • beautyaddict says:

          Možda ja nisam dobro mjerilo jer nemam neku osjetljivu kožu, al evo, frendica koja mi je ovo posudila da isprobam i koristim ima osjetljivu kožu i njoj je to dobro, iako, ne znam baš koliko često ona to koristi. Mene osobno ništa nije iritiralo. :)

          I, iako je ovo jako lijepo i sve to, ja bih ipak radije odabrala Shiseido SV, em zbog cijene em zbog meni osobno draže teksture i boljeg efekta na licu. :)

    Probala sam ovo u parfumeriji i potpuno se slažem s tobom, prekrasna ambalaža, izgled iz bajke, miris mmm, ali na licu nema neke primjetne razlike! Nije za nekog s mjesovitom/problematicnom kozom, ali za normalnu kožu je prekrasni luksuz!!

    Inače, imam nekoliko Guerlainovih proizvoda, mislim da sam ih sve kupila s popustom 50% u Martimexu, stalno imaju nešto njihovo snizeno (čim dođe novi look stari snize), i to budu skroz ok cijene :) naravno i navuku me na kupnju hihi :D

    • beautyaddict says:

      Da, znam da Martimex ima te popuste. :) Čini mi se kako bi ova podloga bila bolji izbor tijekom zimskog razdoblja, barem meni. :) I je, zaista krasan luksuz! :D

    to bih volila probat,cula sam da je naj menude bazama.
    jucer sam probala njihov tekuci puder papure extreme,odlican je,elektra probaj ga,za mjesovitu je kozu,tako lijepo sjedne na lice,i sve prekrive,a trebaju ga svega dvi kapljice za cijelo lice,ja imam problematicno lice sklono crvenilu

    • beautyaddict says:

      A puder neću isprobavati jer trenutno imam pozamašne zalihe pudera :D Možda kad malo toga potrošim hehe :D

    Čini se super,ali meni je to potpuno nedostižno financijski

    Meni osobno je važno samo, da je dizajn funkcionalan. Više me zanimaju sastojci produkta … što mi drugo preostaje kad sam preosjetljiva na sve živo. :)

    • beautyaddict says:

      Ja srećom nisam osjetljiva tako da ne moram baš paziti na sastojke. Bitno mi je da proizvod radi ono za što je namijenjen. :)

    hi,
    do you think this primer is good for oily skin?
    i have the prep and prime from m.a.c and i love it but i wanna try this one from guerlain,although my skin is oily even i don’t have blemishes or discolorations in my face..
    before i forget,i loved your website!

    • beautyaddict says:

      Hi Carolina!

      I have combination skin and it did work for me, I really love it, but I really wouldn’t know about oily skin. Either way, it’s the best for you to ask for some samples before you make any purchase because it’s to expensive for any mistakes. :D

      And thank you! <3
