Guerlain's Bubbly Bubble Blush
Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Aah Guerlain, each and every season you always woo me with the most luxurious products. Their luminous finishing pearls on number one of course, I own four tubs with a reason. This year’s Spring collection called “Blossom Météorites" is no different, with a range of luxurious golden packaging as we’d expect. But alongside the usual golden suspects, there’s one little strange duckling to be noticed in the collection: the two Météorites Bubble Blushes that come in a white plastic domed packaging. Might remind you of an EOS lipbalm, but don’t be fooled: this isn’t just a chapstick.
When you open up the little container, you immediately catch the scent - it smells just like their powders do: like yummy violets. It’s very shiny when you first open it, but it doesn’t stay like that. Once you touch it for the first time it reveals a lovely, almost matte cream product. These bubble blushes come in two shades, of which I got 02 Cherry. It’s a very bright magenta pink with a blue undertone, so it’s quite the cold toned blusher. These kind of blushes make you look awake and ‘fresh’, I turn to these on days I know I haven’t slept enough. Pink power!
I played around with different ways of applying this cute bubble blush - straight from the bubble onto the cheeks, by dipping my finger into it and blending it out with tapping motions & with a small stippling blush. Applying the blush directly onto the cheeks and blending it out afterwards, with either your fingers or a brush, will result in the most intense pigmentation. I however prefer to dip my small stippling brush into the dome (Zoeva’s Petit Stippling) and build up the intensity as I blend it out and add more when needed. After blending, the blush quickly dries up to a powdery semi-matte flawless finish. And I don’t take the word flawless lightly, this is the real deal here. Doesn’t move your base product, doesn’t stain before blending & stays put all day through. Win!
Guerlain’s Météorites Bubble Blush retails for €39.40 & is a limited edition. It’s available as we speak!
