Three Things to Try- Guerlain

Guerlain is one of the world’s oldest perfume houses. So it should come to no shock when I state that they are masters in the world of beauty. From Marilyn Monroe’s infamous lipstick shade to creating a perfume that inspired the flappers in the 20’s with every product I purchase not only am I getting a truly luxurious product but I feel like buying a piece of history too.

When deciding to do the “three things to try” posts I knew Guerlain was a brand I needed to touch on. I don’t want you to think I’m sipping Don Paragon in a cashmere dressing robe while applying a Rouge G. Personally Guerlain’s products are definitely ones that are I save up for therefore cherish them greatly. They are also ones I research the heck out of and take my time buying because this girl doesn’t want duds. So here are my top three things to try from Guerlain.

Could a Guerlain top product list be complete without this? I don’t think so!
The original Meteorites was first released in 1987 and it was the first of its kind. The multicoloured pearls work to perfect the complexion while giving a subtle glow.  For me Meteorites are that product that you don’t initially see on the skin, and then almost magically your skin just looks better.
 I apply this by swirling a large fluffy brush and applying it over foundation, kind of like a setting powder. They literally take seconds to put on yet make all the world of difference.
It goes without saying but the packaging is unquestionably exquisite too!

I also have the pressed limited edition version. This version took me forever to track down, I love it but I won’t go too much into it because it was limited edition.
What I am getting to is if they ever decide to re-release this do yourself a favor and purchase it, it’s the same Meteorites finish but travel friendly.

Shine Automatique Rose Pompon
I feel downright classy when I say this but Guerlain’s Rose Pompon is my signature colour. You know how people say you will know your perfect lipstick shade because it gives the face life? This is that shade for me! This pinky mauve is wearable with just about any look and for any occasion.
Although this is lipstick is slightly shimmery it is not gritty in the slightest. Instead the formula is amazing, buttery, perfectly sheer, yet still pigmented, shiny, hydrating and smells great too. What more can you ask for? Oh the push up packaging is not only beautiful and cool but it’s extremely handy too.
For me Rose Pompon has it all… 

Terracotta Mineral Bronzer
I really do love NARS Laguna and I’m not trying to cheat on her here but I also love my Guerlain Terracotta Mineral Bronzer. The whole Terracotta line was established in 1984 and claims to make one instantly healthy while capturing that healthy glow.
I am not cheating on you Laguna, but Guerlain is on to something here. This matte bronzer is the perfect shade for my winter skin. I know it’s hard for us pale gals to find bronzer shades but this one is perfectly pale and pretty darn amazing! While it is not shimmery I will say it’s not deathly mattifying either. It’s like glowly but in that healthy skin kind of way.
“I hate loose powders” I know, I know loose powders can be scary, messy and a carpet catastrophe waiting to happen. I think Guerlain really thought this through because this has a mesh protector that prevents product from flying out and also makes application easier. For me this is that perfect colour, easy to blend, great to travel with and just an amazing all-rounder bronzer.

I think Guerlain is a great line. For the most part there products are always spot on trend, luxury and quality. I also love there Rouge G’s as well as there blushes, just saying. So yes ladies there you have it my 3 products to try from Guerlain.  What are some of your favorites leave me a comment?


  1. god I love Guerlain! From shalimar to Rouge G's, it's such a special brand :(( It's the only thing I've missed since I've decided to no longer support brands that test on animals!


    1. They have really do have some amazing products.
      But darn brands really need to stop testing on animals.
      Personally I think luxury brands should be on there A game when it comes to ethically produced products both for our environment and animals alike.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I have yet to try anything from Guerlain, but I really have my eyes on those holiday Meteorites. So stunning, they may just come home with me.
