download.png

About the Foundation straight from Guerlain:

With Météorites Baby Glow, for the first time, light becomes liquid… subtle, silky, impalpable. With a unique alchemy that combines technology with a touch of magic, this liquid light glides onto the skin as a luminous, perfecting veil that erases signs of fatigue and reveals the youth and natural glow of the complexion. The skin looks rested, smooth and replenished – as beautiful and fresh as a baby’s skin. Like an infusion of moisture, the ethereal and delightfully aqueous texture of Météorites Baby Glow makes it glide effortlessly onto the skin, suffusing it with a long-lasting sensation of comfort. With this hydrating burst of freshness, the skin relaxes and appears refreshed, invigorated, plump and radiant.

CLAIMS:

  • silky, luminous formula restores skin’s radiance
  • minimizes signs of fatigue
  • plumps the appearance of skin
  • evens skin tone without thickness

SHADES:

I am currently using the middle shade called “Medium”.

VERDICT:

🔸 Price 🔸

₱ 2,900.00 for 30ml

🔸 Packaging

The packaging looks girly in light pink. I love how their emblem was placed on the lid. It has a pump that’s why the tube feels so weighty.

🔸 Fragrance 🔸

It has a relatively strong fragrant same with their powder (Guerlain Meteorites powder). Sweet but not perfume-like.

PROS:

  • comes with a pump
  • SPF 25
  • even outs skin tone
  • blurs the skin
  • good for dry to combination skin
  • light weight
  • no breakout problems
  • Paraben free
  • easily blendable

CONS:

  • not a ton of color option for shades
  • goes only from light to medium skin tone
  • light coverage
  • still needs concealer for imperfections

REPURCHASE? Yes. (Available at Sephora)

RATE: 8/10 (👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽)

Until next time,

I’ve been a Fitbit user since 2014. It started out with the Zip, One and Flex but one which stands out for me was my Charge HR.
