Splurge vs. Steal: Guerlain Meteorites & Victoria’s Secret Luminous Face Powder Gems


Ladies, pay attention! This Splurge vs. Steal has us a little excited over in Product Girl land. The contenders: Guerlain Meteorites and Victoria’s Secret Luminous Face Powder Gems.

Guerlain Meteorites could be considered by some to be the makeup equivalent of one of the seven wonders of the world. They packaging is to die and so is the product itself. They are powdered pearls that work to give you a perfect complexion by brightening, lightening and evening your skin tone.  And don’t even get me started on the beauty of the Meteorites that Guerlain released with their 2009 holiday collection. Suffice it to say, they are on my wish list big-time. But at $53, we’re definitely in splurge territory.

Next we have the Victoria’s Secret Luminous Face Powder Gems from the new Heidi Klum Exotic Jewels collection. These are also illuminating powder pearls that brighten your skin tone and give you that lit-from-within glow. The pearls are a mix of plum, pink and gold – and on my fair skin tone, are best used as a blush. At $22, these are a steal! I picked these up last week and have been wearing it as a blush daily. I am in love with this product – it gives my cheeks a rosy glow and the packaging is gorgeous. It’s a sturdy cardboard and the pattern is, as the collection indicates, very exotic.

The final verdict? Both of these products are amazing – but the Victoria’s Secret Face Powder Gems are a steal! Have you tried either? Share your thoughts below!

  2. Wow, thanks for this post! I just brought my Guerlain Beige Chic out of summer retirement this morning and am loving them again. I’m def going to out & buy the VS ones now though!!!

  3. I’ve not tried the Guerlain prooduct to be able to compare the 2 but I love the different colours that are in the Victoria’s Secret face gems. Definately best as a blusher with the pinky undertones :-)

    I had to have these. Glad they had a sample open so that I could test it out before I bought it. I’m a woman of color, so I wasn’t sure how it would look on me, but it’s really pretty.
