I'm a happy gal today! I'll be disinfecting them and adding them to my deluxe sample Smiley Happy Unfortunately, the guy who was preparing the sample for me didn't know how the Meteorites can opened, so he ended up dropping ~8 of them on the floor. It was heartbreaking...

Does it matter which color you get? I have light-medium skin with slight golden/yellow undertones.

 

I am thinking about medium 03 Screen Shot 2014-05-16 at 9.37.08 PM.png

but Dore 04 is beautiful as a bronze glow! Screen Shot 2014-05-18 at 12.14.13 AM.png

Hey Christina,

 

It depends on the look you want.  If you want a more subtle look, choose 03.  Go for 04 if you want it slightly more dramatic.  They do not apply very dark unless you really swirl the brush hard, so I do not think you can choose wrong.  You can always start with 03 and buy 04 once you realize how much you love 03 and decide to add to your collection.

Okay what is these? I'm embarrassed to admit I have no idea lol

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Magic balls.  You swirl a brush across them, then run the brush on your face where you want a subtle glow/shimmer.

We call them magic balls, because once you get some you want more and more.  They're magical.

I asked for a sample today and the guy gave me 7 perles! I tried not to look too shocked Smiley Wink 

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Haha I guess there is a perk to undertrained staff. 

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

I know right? I don't think he really knew what they were or their value because a. They are in a plastic baggie and b. When I asked for them by name he wasn't sure what they wereI had to show him. They only have a quarter display of Guerlain so it's understandable.

Thanks, I ordered the 03 online, too. So many perles, ermergerd! 

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Okay...I'm just going to say what you're not supposed to say...but I really, really hope I'm not the only one thinking it...

 

5 second rule?  Pick the balls up and disinfect later?  Who will admit this with me?

I mean, it's Guerlain Meteorites we're talking about...

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

I was thinking the same thing, but imagined that they probably smashed into dust.

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

They pretty much did.. Most of them anyway. My initial reaction was to pick them up, but my internal clean freak stopped me from doing that Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Now I know I was partially sold on the Meteorites due to the packaging. LOL. It's not quite as attractive when they're sitting in a plain container, eh? ^^;; They are still cute, though....

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Yeah they definitely look cheap now Smiley Happy 

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

Just curious, but how are you planning to disinfect them?

Re: Got a Guerlain Meteorites sample in-store today :)

I dipped a brush in some alcohol and brush-swiped each of the balls. It's how I do my pressed powders, so I'm guessing the same process should apply to these
