Guerlian Les Meteorites Powder Balls - The Decadent Product

Guerlian Les Meteorites Powder Balls

My dad bought me the Guerlain Les Meterorites Powder Balls when I was about 15 and I remember being totally in love with the pure decadence of the product. Everything about it screamed luxury and it was when I realised quite how beautiful makeup could be. 


My packaging is rather battered from the years of use but it has a beautiful reflective pattern over the whole lid, which slides off easily. You are then greeted by a thick sponge with a gorgeous leather top completed with the Guerlain motif. Inside are these beautiful little shimmery pearls of a variety of pale colours which smell like the pale violet sweets. 

Guerlian Les Meteorites Powder Balls

I have read numerous reviews declaring that these were in fact the original illuminsing powders; Designed to minimise flaws and leave a radiant healthy glow, very similar to what the much raved about Ambinet Lighting Powders do. 

I absolutely love this product for the sentimental value it offers and I used to be obbsessed with the luminous finish it gave. However, now I can find it a little too glittery for my liking, especially in the unforgiving sunshine. Nonetheless in the Winter when my skin needs that much needed boost this is a beautiful product that really does last years. As much as I will always cherish this beautiful Guerlain product I would recomment the Hourglass Ambinet Lighting Powders over this as the finish is much more subtle, read my review of Dim Light here

You can purchase the updates Meteorites Powder Balls on the Sephora website for $60.

I have my eye on the Cover FX illuminating setting powder next!

    1. I know it is so pretty! Think I would go for the Ambient Lighting Powders though as they are much easier to carry around and have a more subtle and natural finish! x
