Guerlain Météorites Perles Light-Diffusing Primer: Pictures, Swatches, and Reviews

First and foremost, I have absolutely no excuses for abandoning my blog for more than a month. I just wasn’t feeling it, I guess? I wasn’t in the mood to take photos of my makeup; I wasn’t in the mood to write about makeup… heck, for a period of time I wasn’t even in the mood to put on makeup. You could say I was going through some stuff (disclaimer: I still am, but I just don’t want to neglect my blog any longer). Damn, I am horrible at this. 😆

On the plus side, though, I traveled a bit during my blog absence and it was an amazing experience. I’ll make sure to write about that, because I’d be dumb not to!


Anyway, here’s a makeup review I had been putting off for so long already—the Guerlain Météorites Perles Light-Diffusing Primer, a.k.a. the BEST makeup primer I have ever used!

EOTD: Urban Decay Naked Basics and Urban Decay Naked 2 (28/01/2014)

I had been planning to post about this since the day I did it (because damn, I really needed to redeem myself after that “panda eye look” fiasco last New Year’s Eve), but as usual I never really found the time to edit photos and make a post… I just so happen to have stayed at home today because I’m sick. I swear, if my schedule last term with the first phase of my undergraduate thesis was hectic, my schedule this term with both my on-the-job training/internship and the second phase of my undergraduate thesis is RIDICULOUS (I do enjoy my internship, though—I feel bad that I missed it today). I hardly ever even have the time to hang out with friends anymore! 😦

Anyway, back to my EOTD… one fine Tuesday, my 8-10AM class was an announced free cut and I had so much time on my hands before going to school since my next class wouldn’t be until 1PM. Best task to spend all that time on? Painting on my face, no doubt! 😆

It’s a little too much for school I guess, but it’s still suitable for a day look, don’t you think?

Guerlain Haul: Photos and (Late) Announcements!

I had been planning to post about this for quite a while now (by quite a while, I mean almost a month) but I never really got to it because school commenced and lots of real-life drama (that I would much rather not talk about, thank you) occurred. Still, just in case you’ve been planning to get something from Guerlain Cosmetics and you’re a bit tight on funds, this post might be of use to you!

First, let me share a photo of my much-awaited Guerlain haul that I finally got last December 27 (I told you it was almost a month ago already). I’m currently working on my review posts about these and I’ll have them up before the weekend ends!

I got just the Guerlain Météorites Perles in 02 Teint Beige and the Guerlain Météorites Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer! The rest were free samples c/o the lovely MUA at Guerlain Rustan’s The Beauty Source Makati.

Yep, you read that right—free Guerlain mascara (which I think is a full size if not a deluxe size sample) and powder foundation (which most definitely is a sample size)! I love that I end up friends with almost all the cosmetic boutiques I frequent. Yay for extra freebies, reservation privileges, and firsthand announcements of new products and exclusive sales!
