Guerlain MÉTÉORITES COMPACT Pressed Powder Review
Healthy, glowing skin is hard to achieve. No quick fix, not even the best makeup can fake the natural, blooming radiance you get when you lead a healthier lifestyle making healthy diet choices and finding time for regular physical endurance training.
Still, a superb sheer coverage that leaves you with more skin to flaunt and makeup that does not cake on you can do tons to give a visual illusion of smoothly textured skin with just the right amount of radiance.
About Guerlain MÉTÉORITES COMPACT Pressed Powder
From one of the most recognized and oldest fragrance and cosmetics brand comes a pressed powder that does more than just smoothen your skin and even out your skin tone.
The Guerlain MÉTÉORITES COMPACT Pressed Powder is aware of the skin needs of the modern woman. It packs away in a slim, luxurious compact, an absorbent powder formulation that regulates your skin’s natural oils and moisture while bringing in shine to perk up any dull skin and certainly add character to already well-maintained skin. The formulation does not slop makeup on your face, however, and instead, delivers all of these visual benefits through a very lightweight medium that is sheer and almost leaves your skin bare and naked and yet absolutely enhanced.
Just when you thought that’s all, you will be happy to note that Guerlain MÉTÉORITES COMPACT Pressed Powder is specially formulated to resist pollution with Guerlain’s Urban Protect Complex. This special blend of ingredients which includes a sun protection factor (SPF) 35 and powerful antioxidants, help fight the skin cell damaging effects of environmental stressors that cause skin to become aged, wrinkled and hyperpigmented.
Guerlain MÉTÉORITES COMPACT Pressed Powder delivers all of these skin benefits as it dries down your silky complexion to a matte finish.
While this product works well for all skin types, those with dry and combination skin types will be able to harness more out of this product. This product is offered in three subtly differentiated shades:
- Teint Rose, white pressed powder for the fairer skinned
- Teint Dore, contains more gold particles in it, and works up wonders for all skin tones
- Teint Beige, gives off a subtle bronze shimmer which also works well for all skin tones
This product contains fragrance that gives you a whiff of violets.

Founded in 1828 in France as a fragrance company, the House of Guerlain is also one of the oldest, most reputable brands in the global skincare industry. Its founder, Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain was, at one point, appointed as the official perfumer of the French royal family, and has, subsequently, created signature fragrances for other key royal figures in Europe.
The Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH) Group acquired Guerlain and took full control of the company in 1994, retaining the luxury and extravagant character that is undeniably Guerlain.
