Downright Cheeky Balls, That Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Blush!

Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Blush Angelic Radiance

Okay I know that this blush is probably talked half to death, which was why I wasn’t sure if I should do a review on it or not. When I showed my shopping haul in one of my email newsletters a couple of weeks ago (ahh one of the many extras that you’ll see only if you subscribe to BA Insider! *hint hint shameless plug hint hint*) and asked if you’d still like me to do a review on it, I received a good number of “yes” so here it is!

Paris B helped me pick this up in Malaysia. As my purveyor of fine goods, she knows what I want and when she was about to pick this up, she asked me if I wanted one too and the answer was a very enthusiastic affirmative. When we caught up in KL and she handed mine over to me, I have to say that in comparison to all of the Meteorites I’ve tried, this one’s TINY.

All of the reviews you may have seen on the Perles de Blush were right; these balls are small. It’s almost half the amount of balls that you get in comparison to the regular Meteorites, which makes this more expensive. However, as the blush only goes on the cheeks and not the entire face like the other Meteorites, the blush will actually stretch further in terms of use. I’d be really surprised if one manages to finish the entire jar of this blush balls because even though they’re tiny, they sure pack a punch in colour.

The Perles de Blush comes with a small powder puff that fits the cardboard box just nicely but when you remove it, it will create a cloud of blush powder so do make sure you take it out slowly. I don’t use the powder puff at all for blush application but it’s good to keep it in the box to make sure the balls don’t jiggle around and break.

In terms of colour, this is a rosy pink blush that gives a beautifully flushed appearance to the cheeks. It looks real pretty on the cheeks and smells quite lovely too.

Is this a must-have? From one blush fiend to another, if I told you no, I’d be lying. I’m glad to add this to my blush collection. Having said that, I really do wish the blush came in a metal box instead of a cardboard one. Even with the design of cherubs on the cover, I can’t help but think that the cardboard cheapens the product a little. I reckon if this came in a pretty tin, it would fly off the shelves even quicker. Oh but what do I know eh? I just spent a lot of money on tiny balls. 😛

I paid RM192.00 (approximately AU$68.00 at the time of writing) for the Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Blush. This retails at US$68.00 in the US. It’s no longer available on the David Jones website so I’m not sure if this is still available in store. If you do see it in store, do check it out. I’m tempting you here, oh fellow blush fiends!

What I like about it: Beautiful rosy pink blush that gives a lovely flush on the cheeks, a pretty lil’ addition to the blush collection, if I may say so myself.

What I do not like about it: Teeny weeny balls that cost more than the regular Meteorites and that cardboard packaging. Why not a tin, Guerlain? Sigh.

Have you tried the Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Blush? Your thoughts, oh blush fiends? Yay or nay?

    Ohh these look gorgeous! But I’m not sure I can justify spending so much for something so small. *sighs*

      Yeah they are pricey. Even more expensive than the regular Meteorites! 🙁

    Like you, I love mine as well. They do pack a punch so I rely on the Yachiyo to soften the colours. Tip: Don’t use this over the bathroom sink. One of the balls rolled down the sink this morning. I yelped in dismay 🙁

    1. Tine

      Oh yeah I saw yours in the bathroom 😛 Oh I would yelp too if mine rolled down the sink. They’re so damn small!

    YAY! This looks lovely on you and I swear it looks lovely on everyone! So expensive though. I think it’s pricier than gold, gram for gram >.<

      Holy crap, I didn’t think they’d actually be more expensive than gold when you calculate in terms of gram! GEEZ. Does that mean when people say “eh why so expensive? Apply gold on your face ah?”, I can actually say “hello, more expensive than gold, okay??” 😛

    I still haven’t tried the meteorites, but these little Valentine’s Day candy-looking balls are soooooo adorable. I want ’em! But I agree, for that money, they shouldn’t come in cardboard. Even plastic would be better if it were a nice plastic. But tin would be great. And a powder puff, that just seems so strange with little balls. Hmm. The color is pretty but very subtle. I think I like the idea of them most. (That probably sounds strange.)

      I wish the powder puff has some sort of a ribbon handle to it though. It’s actually quite hard to remove unless you pinch the puff with your nails. >.<

    Not that I know anything about Guerlain products, but its possible that the smaller size or blush formula makes them more prone to breakage, and therefore a cardboard box was selected to give it some give as opposed to a hard tin.
    but then again they could’ve just lined the box, what the hey, I’m playing devils advocate here.

    1. Tine

      Hahaha I know what you mean. The powder puff would have protected them from breaking even if they were in a tin. The original Meteorites’ tins actually come with some sort of plastic lining to protect the balls. Could have done the same for the Perles de Blush, I reckon. Oh well. 🙂

    Wow, very pretty! Love the packaging – looks wise at least. But, I can just imagine my granddaughter loving it too. Could. Be. Expensive. Looks lovely on you Tine x

    1. Tine

      Hahahaha it’s not could be expensive. It’s definitely would be expensive. 😛 😛 😛
