Guerlain Spring 2015 Les Tendres Collection: Review and Swatches
Happy Monday, check out what I have for you today: a few review and swatches from the new Spring 2015 Les Tendres Collection from Guerlain. Inspired by gorgeous and fresh spring hues, the collection features quite a few new additions to the Guerlain range. To see some swatches and review, click.......
Meteorites Baby Glow Light-revealing Sheer Makeup in "2 Light" ($60 CAD);
A sheer foundation that evens and illuminates the skin, the new Meteorites Baby Glow has a hydrating formulation that smooths and replenishes. The added SPF 25 also makes it great for everyday wear.

Packaging:
The Baby Glow features an airless squeezable tube with a simple pump.
Formulation:
The product is quite similar to a high coverage BB Cream. The formulation is super lightweight and hydrating, almost like a day lotion. The finish is quite matte and I like how it blends effortlessly into the skin while providing an ethereal glow. It's definitely one of the best sheer foundations I've tried in the past. The shade "2 Light" is equivalent to a NC15-20.

Meteorites Compact Light Revealing Powder in "2 Light" ($71 CAD):
This is a new, updated, travel-friendly version of the classic Meteorites Pearls from Guerlain. Designed with "Stardust" technology, the powder creates a soft-focus radiance for the skin.

Packaging:
The powder comes in a shiny silver compact with the classic Meteorite design etched on the front. Each powder comes with five different colors (just like the Meteorite pearls). They each highlight, neutralize, and even out any skintone imperfections.
Formulation:
The powder is silky soft and incredibly finely milled. There isn't a lot of pigmentation; "2 Light" gives off a semi-translucent whitish luminescence. When applied all over the face, the powder provides the complexion with a subtle glow. The powder evens out the skin tone and diminishes the appearance of pores.

Meteorites Perles De Blush in "Angelic Radiance":
Packaging:
Housed in the cutest vintage-inspired card board box printed with chubby cherubs, the Perles De Blush also includes a pouf applicator. I wish the pouf had a handle for easier handling but it does not.
Formulation:
This powder blush comes in the form of compressed pearls. There are a total of four different shades and when blended together they form a warm bright pink with subtle shimmers. The powder is nice and lightweight and I think it's best applied with a powder blush for even coverage.

A simple baby pink sheer cream, "Baby Rose" is opaque in three coats although you can possibly get away with two. The color is very spring and simple.

Overall:
Such a gorgeous collection. I highly recommend the Baby Glow and the limited edition Perles De Blush. Additionally, if you've been a fan of the Meteorites pearls then you are going to love the compact because it is just so much more convenient than the original packaging!

Availability:
Guerlain is available in stores and online at Sephora, Holt Renfrew, and The Bay.
