As expected dark zones disappear, grayness is erased, and fatigue vanished. When you apply Météorites, the face lights up and shimmers subtly - revitalized and instantly awakened, as if by magic. This sheer, refreshing effect embellishes absolutely every type of complexion. It's somewhat miraculous. The soft, caressing, pale pink powder is topped with a large powder puff. I really wish Guerlain had left out the decorative puff because it takes up half the container.
The photo directly above shows what I saw when I removed the puff: a container only half-full with the magical little balls of pastel powder. I tried to get photos to show you how empty of product the container really looks without the puff, so I held it and tilted (see below), being extremely careful not to spill any of the contents. You do not receive a container filled with Météorites as shown in the promotional photo at the top of this feature. That's disappointing because the shades are so luscious.
It's always very difficult to show the shade of finishing powders in swatch photos, but I gave it a try in full sun. I applied Météorites Perles du Paradis with a kabuki brush.
