Guerlain Malaysia launched the Limited Edition Guerlain by Emilio Pucci collection mid May this year. Yeap, that was 3 months ago. At first I was told the collection would be on sale by 20th May but when I was casually browsing in Isetan KLCC 7 days before that I was surprised to find that the collection is already on sale. Although a month before that I bought Teint Beige from the permanent range…I fell in love with the illuminating effect that meteorites gave me and I was addicted to be a collector. I only wanted to get the Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Météorites Perles D’azur Illuminating Powder but I was persuaded to get the Limited Edition Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Powder Brush as well.
First up. Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Météorites Perles D’azur Illuminating Powder (RM189). I paid RM8 more compare with the permanent range and since it’s limited edition, it’s really quite worth it if you are a collector. It comes in a blue which many people referred as midnight blue tin can. Unlike the embossed signature rosette lid on the permanent range, the Emilio Pucci one has a Pucci Winter Capri print.
I like that Guerlain even print the Winter Capri print on the inside of the outer box. It is such a pleasant on the eye when I opened the box. Don’t you just melt seeing this pretty print?
Here’s a upclose look at the beautiful print. I’ve said it before that I’m so glad Guerlain decided to ditch the cardboard box and replaced with metal can instead. For such a prestige brand I think it’s a must. When I was at the counter I took out the can to check before I pay and I notice the lid was loose and couldn’t give a tight close. So I asked for another one and the BA was gladly to comply. If you are purchasing your first can of Météorites do double check your item before leaving ya.
And here’s the precious pearls that I’m in love with! Although this review came 3 months late, I’ve already been using this right after I bought it which is why you can see some pearls are smaller :). The specialty of this collection is the blue pearls which is meant for anti-tiring in nod of the Pucci shade. I only have 6 blue pearls in my can.
There are 6 different pearls in the can; Blue, Pink, Beige, Orange, Ivory and White Gold.
- Corrective effect: Blue and Pink counter the yellow tones in tired complexions.
- Skin-evening effect: Beige and Orange warm up the complexion and create an even tan.
- Illuminating effect: Ivory and White Gold are light reflectors without a whitening effect.
All the blog I’ve read do swatch of each pearl instead of full face shot. I’ve did a full face shot in my Teint Beige review so this time I’m just going to do what everyone do…pearl swatch. I’ve tried so hard to get the color on so here it is for your viewing pleasure. The only pearl that was easy to swatch is the blue pearl. It’s so soft and highly pigmented than the rest.
If you are asking me what is the different comparing with the permanent range, well…the Emilio Pucci one is more warmer and more illuminating aka shimmer. A lot of people said Teint Beige is on the warm tone but this is more warmer that Teint Beige. You might not need this if you already own a Teint Beige like I do but if you wanted to start your collection why not!
Second item from Guerlain by Emilio Pucci collected that I bought is Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Powder Brush (RM121). It was an unintentional purchase as I thought the bristle were a bit harsh. But it’s limited edition after all and the size fits the can perfectly so here I am.
Same with Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Météorites Perles D’azur Illuminating Powder, Winter Capri print is also on the inside of the outer box.
I admit. Another reason why I bought the brush is also because of the pouch. It’s made of satin with Winter Capri print on it too.
The brush is small and cute. The handle is short and the bristle is in midnight blue too.
At first the blue color on the bristle kinda freaks me out a bit. That’s the only drawback. I’d prefer the pink brush that is at Guerlain counter. Unfortunately it’s not for sale.
Did you get into the meteorites fever yet? Try it and you’d love the illuminating effect of these pearls.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored review. I bought the product on my own.
Hmm? I only saw pink brushes at Guerlain counter when I had my makeover. Is the brush good? I am using Meteorites pressed powder but I won’t repurchase as too expensive for me :'( Need to find an alternative for pressed powder.
The pink brush at Guerlain counter is not for sale unfortunately. The one I have is limited edition from Emilio Pucci collection. The brush may be a bit hard but I feel that it works very well with my meteorites. I know a lot of ppl will say I’m weird for liking the brush but I do like it 🙂
I was torn between getting a Guerlain pressed powder, RMK or MAC and I chose MAC. Slightly cheaper but still expensive 😛
My next one would be RMK!
Oh? My friend bought the pink brush at Taka Singapore but I played around with the brush at the counter it felt a tad scratchy. Probably so due to it was a tester. If I am not wrong there are two types to MAC pressed powder? The one with white casing was what I wanted to buy, but again I am cheap like that so I left the store empty-handed :thrifty Fresh graduate:
🙂 RMK? Sounds interesting for me to do some research LOL thanks. Hmm Do you usually use liquid or you just stick to powder foundation only?
Oh. Maybe it’s sold at Singapore but not Malaysia. And yea it’s a bit scratchy. I’m not very fussy so I’m okay with it.
I bought MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Haven’t use it yet so no comment yet lol.
I used to only use 2-way powder foundation but nowadays I’m very much into liquid foundation so I ditch my powder foundation. Only use it on lazy quick outing 🙂
On my first time visit MAC SA told me I was NC30 (I am very fair so I was like eh?), second visit, another SA told me I was NC20. LOL.
I am ditching my powder too :'( Too dry for my skin it looks like flakes coming off my forehead (okay a bit exaggerated but you get my idea LOL)
I really like you review as the brands you have been using since to be very similar to that of mine. Keep it up and the white-pink layout is really cute too!
I hope I get to buy Shiseido flat top foundation brush/RT buffing brush after I start working so my liquid foundation doesn’t look cakey (now it does since I am no expert) LOL
I’m NC20 too :). Haha I get your flaking idea. I used to said the same thing but I think it’s more like cakey that it looks like flaking.
Thanks Elin! I always prefer white background as it’s much more easier for pictures to be on.
How much is the Shiseido flat top foundation brush in Singapore? Here is like RM95. I’m currently using RMK Liquid Foundation which works well with finger application so I don’t find a need to buy a brush just yet 🙂
Hmm, I have seen the review about the oh-my-god-must-have Shi brush at S$40 (which is not too far off from USD$30 retail price in the States). Hmm there is a drugstore version at Adambeauty which costs about USD$26+2 shipping fee. With the marginal price difference and currency conversion, RM95 seems very reasonable LOL.
LOL. Thanks for the info. You did a lot of research! 🙂
