Guerlain Les Météorites Carousel

Guerlain make-up is always a treat: the ‘Mummy’s handbag’ scent (a swirl of rose and violet), the packaging – not to mention the performance of almost everything we ever try, actually. We’ve never particularly fallen for the Météorites range, till now, though. Famously, these are little pearls of shimmering powder in mixed shades – here, as sweetie-coloured as the scent – which you swirl with a brush and dust onto the complexion.

Jo dutifully gave them a go, though – and ker-pow! A very dull morning face (she’d notched up trips to Preston, Torquay and Dubai, yes, Dubai in just a week) was suddenly radiant and rosy.

The carousel-inspired silver metal box is quite pretty enough to sit on the dressing table, meanwhile. And that’s right where it’s staying, for ‘blah’ days.
