Guerlain Meteorites Le Parfum

I absolutely love the smell of Meteorites powder, so I was excited when I learned that Guerlain would be releasing it in perfume form. Although when it became available in stores, I resisted buying in spite of my worry it might be limited edition. #firstworldproblems

I gave in and bought a bottle when the Guerlain shops had a limited price reduction offer. I have no regrets, though. 😀

The Guerlain Meteorites Le Perfume comes in a round glass bottle with spray. There is no travel-friendly variant available to my knowledge, which sucks for me.

It has, of course, the Meteorites signature light, floral, powdery, woody scent, which I truly love.聽 Its longevity is quite good in my experience, and the scent doesn’t easily disappear as I noticed when I sweat from my morning long walks to work.

I’ll definitely purchase if a hair mist or body oil Meteorites came out, but until then, I’ll repurchase this perfume once I’m out. 😊聽

Review: Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection

The PowderBleu Collection is a limited collection of brushes that has FauxBleu Technology. This technology is the engineering of synthetic bristles to perform similarly to blue squirrel hair. The technology is a聽combination of soft, long tapered with unique wavy bristles and optimized for layering powder without disrupting makeup already applied.

I have two brushes from the collection: the B01 Soft Powder Brush and B04 Soft Shadow Brush.

Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette

The Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette is (still) my favorite all-around/multi-task palette. It’s difficult for me to set this aside when I need to rotate my makeup, which I do weekly.

The palette was released in part of Laura Mercier’s holiday collection last year. I fell in love with it at first sight, but I didn’t buy it right away. I tried hard to be a “wise consumer” by sleeping it off. Maybe I was just taken by how pretty it is. Then when I went on a vacation, I couldn’t stop thinking about it to the point I had to contact the SA for a reservation while still out of the country. 😂

Review: Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation

In the initial release of the collection with the MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation palette in the official website, the palette sold out fast. I wasn’t sure if it would be available again. I think (and still do) it’s a limited holiday release, so I was a bit disappointed to miss out. To my surprise, Sephora Philippines had it. I quickly ordered the palette the moment Sephora PH announced they already carry the brand. The MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation is my first Pat McGrath eyeshadow palette. 馃檪

Review: Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

The Dior Forever Skin Glow is a new range of foundation under the Forever line, which was released early this year. It is actually a reformulation of (my holy grail) Diorskin Forever foundation. But other than a velvet matte finish foundation, they also released a radiant finish variant.

My shade is 2W

Description and ingredients

The new Dior Forever foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump. I like its new bottle design because it’s not bulky and easy to store and even pack for travel. It contains 30ml of product and has SPF35 PA++.
