Possibly the most beautiful makeup product I own… The packaging, the product, it’s just EXQUISITE. I’ve pretty much lusted over Guerlain Météorites for years, but could never justify spending that much money on what is essentially sparkly powder. My Mum bought this for me as a present from her holiday (she didn’t find anything actually on the holiday so she got me this from Duty Free at the Airport!) and if I had bought it myself, I maybe would have gone for the darker colours, but I have 002 Beige and it does show on my skin, it’s just that it’s summer so I’m only going to get more tanned in the coming months (hopefully).

Look at the beautiful lid!

The glitter particles are absolutely miniscule and it truly does have an illuminating effect on the face but it’s a product more suited for the evening/night rather than every day wear. I tend to use it just on areas I want to highlight – brow bone, centre of nose, tops of cheekbones and cupids bow but I would use it all over the face to get a really radiant effect as well.

The perles inside!

Overall, I love this product but I would be interested to try out other highlighter/illuminating powders to see how it compares, does anyone know of a cheaper dupe?

Dior Addict Lip Balm Voluptuous Care in ‘002’

This is by far one of the most luxurious lip balms I’ve ever owned and I love the packaging. I prefer tubes of lip balm anyway as I’m not a fan of dipping my fingers into a pot – I just think it’s pretty unhygienic if you’re out and about and need some moisture on your lips to use your dirty fingers to apply it. The red tint in this is pretty subtle, even though it looks bright in the tube. It’s really moisturising and non-sticky and lasts for absolutely ages! It does smell/taste of Dior Addict which at first when you put it on is a little strong but it wears off. Overall, I think this is a great product for summer as you can wear it alone or use as a treatment under other lip products or overnight, it’s luxurious and hydrating and definitiely worth considering if you’re in the market for a new lipbalm.
