Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow – Review

After all the hype of Guerlain Les Tendres for Spring 2015, I finally decided to write down what I think of the new Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow. To tell you frankly, the first thing that attracts me to get this product is the name.. BABY GLOW! Yes glow, the healthy glow that I really need right now. My skin has been looking quite dry and dull due to hormonal changes, so when this product is hitting Singapore shore, I ran and grab it immediately LOL!


Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow comes in a squeezable tube with pump.


Guerlain market this product not as a BB Cream or foundation but as a light revealing sheer make up. This is supposed to give you the glow that Meteorites gives but in the liquid form. It also promises to enhance the radiance of the complexion and wipe away signs of daily fatigue and stress.

Meteorites Baby Glow comes in 3 shades with 2Clair being the lightest, I picked 2 Clair and the swatch is as below. I find that shade 2 Clair is a tad too dark for me, I would love it even more if it comes in a lighter shade.



After trying this out many many times, I am happy to report that Meteorites baby glow provides the glow that it promise. Although it is quite sheer and not able to cover up my redness perfectly, I love the finish and the glow Meteorites Baby Glow provides. It has a matte finish yet it gives that healthy glow that I need. This is one of the liquid base that I don’t always use setting powder on top of it. It stays for a good 6-7 hours before it oxidises. With setting powder, it lasts up to 8-9 hours with me. Meteorites Baby Glow has the Guerlain Meteorites scent – I personally have been very sensitive to smell these days and it would be nicer if the product is not too heavily scented.

Comparing Meteorites baby glow with some other Guerlain’s make up base, I would say that all these 3 products below provides a different finish and texture. In terms of coverage, Lingerie de Peau provides the best coverage and the finish is more dewy compared to the healthy glow that Baby Glow provides. Comparing to BB Hydra, Baby glow has a more pinkish tone in it and BB Hydra leans more towards yellowish tone. The texture of BB Hydra is also more watery compared to Baby Glow.



Guerlain meteorites baby glow is a permanent product, so there’s no need to hurry to get this asap. Give it a try at the counter first and see if you will like the texture. As a final thought, I would say that Meteorites Baby Glow does not disappoint me. It provides the healthy glowing skin and fades away the fatigue looking skin. Moreover the staying power of this product is very good considering the humid weather here in Singapore. The only downside of this is the heavy scented product that might be a little bit overwhelming to me. Other than that, I am happy to say that Meteorites Baby Glow is worth trying especially if you like a lightweight product over your face.

Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow is retailing at SGD 75 in Singapore

The collection has finally hit Singapore shores and I am expecting many people would be buying the Meteorites Perles de Blush. I was reluctant to purchase the Meteorites Perles de Blush because of many considerations, but after looking at it in person, I was immediately sold!

I did a quick swatch at the counter and without further adieu, here are the swatches!


Here’s a look at the whole collection. Guerlain divided the look into two categories; Angel Glow look and Precious Glow look.


In the Angel Glow Look, Guerlain has Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Les Précieux (SGD 88). The shades in this eyeshadow is a mixture of satiny shades and frosty/metallic shades. There are two kisskiss lipstick in this collection, 263 Ala Parisienne and 540 Peach Satin (LE) (SGD 49).


And here’s the Precious Glow look,


The eyeshadow in this look, Les Nuées (SGD 88) is a blue themed eyeshadow. It’s a mixture of deep navy blue and frosty soft shades. The kisskiss lipsticks for this look would be 261 Rose Imperial and 560 Rosy Silk (LE) (SGD 49).


Another new product for this season is the Meteorites Compact (SGD 84). This is the pressed version of the highly sought after meteorites pearl and the pearls are finely pressed to form a beautiful mosaic of light-enhancing and corrective shades. Another good good news is, this would be a permanent collection.


Another product that I was waiting for this collectiion is the Meteorites Baby Glow (SGD 74). This product is promised to bring out the healthy glow of Meteorites Perles but in liquid form and it is packed with SPF 25. Meteorites baby glow features the Stardust technology, the light-creating polymer from the legendary Météorites.

Below is the swatch of shade 2 – Clair /Light 3 – Medium 4 – Doré / Golden, please pardon my dirty hand on this swatch.


Lastly, the highly anticipated Meteorites Perles de Blush (SGD75). The Perles de Blush are a combination of three shades of pearls – A fuchsia that revives the natural colour of the cheeks, an iridescent champagne that illuminates the curve of the cheekbones and a rose petal pink that gently refreshes the complexion.

It’s a limited edition perles de blush and as the swatch below show, you shall anticipate a pigmented perles for your cheek.

YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette


I am still in the mood of exploring Spring items collection as they offers bright and wearable colors. However I notice that this Spring season, there are many brands that have launched their Spring collection with a twist. I personally think that YSL Palette Ombres De Jour is somewhat the colors I would expect from a Spring collection but with a little bold approach.


IMG_4973 IMG_4974

Palette Ombres du Jour comes in a beautiful pink glittery packaging. The eyeshadow format & texture follows the latest couture formula which was launch last year. The eyeshadows are generally smooth and have silky texture. Pigmentation is nice with most colors pops on the first swatch except the pink one. I find that the pink is a little bit sheerer than the other shades.


Top Left: Light taupe with no glitters/shimmers, leaning towards satiny finish

Top Right: Milky white with shimmers

Bottom Left: Medium brown with gold shimmers

Bottom Right: Light frosty pink

Middle: Matte black with pink glitters

I would say that generally the shades in this palette has good quality – they’re soft, smooth and buttery. However I faced some problems when I applied the black shade. I noticed some fallouts although I have used some primers. And the black shade is not as smooth as the rest of the shades too.

This is a look I did with this palette. I applied the light taupe all over my lid. Then I apply the pink shade on my 3/4 on my lid – I kept layering the shades to create a more popping pink. With a pointed brush, I applied the black shade starting from my outer corner (near the lash line) and blend the colors up. After blending, I re-added the colors until I get the look I desired.

Overall, YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette is an interesting palette where it showcase the beauty of spring shades without making it look too boring. I love that YSL added a matte black with pink glitters – it makes this palette a lovely spring palette to me. Generally the textures are fine – buttery and silky smooth and it has decent pigmentation too. Packaging is certainly one of the reason why I bought this product – just look at how pretty is that glittery casing! I would say that this palette is not a must have – but if you’ve been collecting YSL Limited Edition make up, this is one that you don’t want to miss! :)

Tom Ford Spring 2015 Swatches and EOTD of Raw Jade

IMG_4897 IMG_4901

If there’s a brand that always makes me excited over their launches, Tom Ford is definitely one of them! For Spring 2015, Tom Ford has launched some rather unusual colors. The brand focuses on bold eyeshades rather than the usual pastels shades that we would see in most brands.

Tom Ford has three limited edition eye color duos for this Spring;

  • Raw Jade
  • Crushed Indigo
  • Ripe Plum

Each palette would consist of two shades; an opaline shade that’s created uniquely for each palette and a darker metallic shade. Raw Jade is a khaki green and paired with a mint shimmery finish. Crushed Indigo is a combination of dark blue with shimmer and a metallic lavender shade. Ripe Plum is a combination between dark brown and a light metallic pink.



Without any doubt, Tom Ford eyeshadow delivers excellent pigmentation quality. This can be seen from my swatches above. It’s very easy to get the colors pop – no need too much layering. The eyeshadows can also be worn dry and wet. I’ve the swatches below for both wet and dry. When it is swatched wet, the metallic shades pops better than when it is swatched dry.

I’ve tried both wet and dry application to my eyelids; and for the sake of efficiency, I would prefer to wear it dry.

Here’s some closer look of Raw Jade when it is swatched both dry and wet over indirect sunlight.

For this spring collection, Tom Ford also released two new mascaras, Teal Intense and Black Plum.

“Tom Ford’s mascara has specially designed brush, full and dense, allows lash filling powders in a creamy formula to last throughout the day without clumping or crumbling, amplifying the eyes’ dramatic impact”

I’ve got Teal Intense to match with my Raw Jade, and so far this is one of the mascara that doesn’t smudge on me! Thumbs up!



Alongside with this collection, Tom Ford also releases 4 Lip Shines that which will be out earlier than the rest of the collection. This will arrive in February in Singapore.

In the EOTD below, I am using a green pencil eyeliner and smudge it out. I also used a primer under neath to make sure that the color stays longer. Then I applied the deep green shade on my outer corner and build the colors by layering. I applied the metallic mint green shade on my inner corner to accentuate the look. As you can see, when both colors are layered together, it creates a new shade of green – it comes out as a lovely mid metallic green.

IMG_0094 IMG_0098


Other than the excellent pigmentation, another thing that impressed me the most is the staying power. This eyeshadow stays perfectly for at least 6 hours with me. I did notice the color fades a little by the 9th hour, but it is totally forgivable as I was spending my time outdoor most of the time on that day.
