Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Compact

I have been meaning to get ahold of this cosmeceutical must-have for a while. But, always deliberated because it is a finishing powder and not an essential makeup item. After all your makeup is on, you dust it on your face like a highlighter to complete the look.

I was lucky to get this compact at the price of a refill, that means I can't choose the colour and instead received the classic gold with multi-coloured swirls in front. I really like the compact better than the box mainly because it's soo handy for touch-ups and picking up more powder if I wanted.

When you open the box, you can immediately smell the heavily perfumed powder. I always like that in compacts. It's like aromatherapy when you reach for a touch-up mid-day or in transit.

At first look, what I noticed is that the compact doesn't come with a puff or brush and you really can't sandwich one in between. I didn't mind as I happen to have a new heart-shaped pink lacquer brush on hand.

The powder does illuminate the face nicely, providing a soft glow on the complexion. Although one of the colours on the compact has glitter, it doesn't show on the face. So the overall effect is very subdued and natural.


  1. What difference do you notice on your skin after you use it? Can you compare it to any other finishing powders you already have? Thanks, lovely pics!

  2. I usually use loose powder in my skin tone. First time using a finishing powder. Can't think of a competing (similar) product to this in the market today.
