While winter doesn’t really get to my skin, overwork, stress, and lack of sleep certainly do. For the past couple of weeks, I have woken up with horribly sallow and dull skin so many times that I lost count. The quick miracle fix I discovered? The new *Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow!
Truth be told, I did not have high hopes for Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow in the beginning. With my combination skin, I am perpetually skeptical about most glow-enhancing products. Then my buddy Tracy’s glowing review (see what I did there?) restored my faith in it. You know what? She is right!
Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow SPF 20 PA++ (30 ml/1 oz. RRP: 50,82 euros) comes in a pink tube with a pump. Not only is it hygienic and user-friendly, I find the Météorites logo on the cap a nice touch. Basically, it is supposed to be the famous “balls” in liquid form. It promises to “glide onto the skin as a luminous, perfecting veil that erases signs of fatigue and reveals the youth and natural glow of the complexion.” Now who doesn’t want that? The formula has Guerlain’s signature violet scent, which I have grown to associate with happiness!
There are three shades available (2 Clair, 2 Medium, and 3 Doré), and I received it in Medium. Medium is a good match for my MAC NC 25-30/Guerlain Beige Naturel skin tone. You might think the undertone is a mismatch when you look at the swatches, but I promise it does not look remotely pink on the face. Believe me when I say it: a base product with a pink undertone will not work for me in a million years, and I will not pretend it does!
Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow in Medium straight out of the tube/blended out:
Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow has a pretty light and liquid consistency. Yet another reason why I really like this is I can blend it out more than effectively with my fingers, which makes it perfect for this lazy girl. With a thin layer, it evens out the complexion. For areas that needs more coverage, you can do a second pass to build it up a little.
The finish of Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow is glowy, but not the type of glowy that easily looks over the top on my skin. Even without any kind of oil-controlling product underneath, it manages to hang onto my T-zone well for a few hours. If I combine it with an oil-controlling primer (for the moment I am on Dior Pore Minimizer) and a bit of mattifying powder (Guerlain Les Voilettes), I am basically set for the work day! I also like how gentle and lightweight it feels on the skin.
Like I said before, Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow visibly lifts sallowness without changing the undertone. If you are prone to sallowness, this is something I would encourage you to look into. Even when you are feeling tired or ill, you don’t have to look that way!
You have seen Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow on me in the following two looks:
Pretty decent, especially considering how little sleep I was functioning on!
All in all, Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow works that Météorites magic just like its powder counterparts. If you can find a shade match, this comes highly recommended from me!
What do you do when you wake up looking sallow? Does anything from Guerlain Les Tendres speak to you? I am also tempted by the blush, but I don’t know if it is practical enough for me to reach for it often.
