Guerlain Summer 2012 Collection Terra Azzurra By Emilio Pucci Meteorites Perles D’azur Illuminating Powder and Collectors Brush Swatch and Review

For summer, Guerlain has once again collaborated with Emilio Pucci to put out exceptional Pucci printed designs. The prints are in cool refreshing shades of blue.

Guerlain and Emilio Pucci have created an exceptional collaboration between the two prestigious houses that draws inspiration from summertime in Italy. The guiding motif of this second collaboration was inspired by the iconic “Winter Capri” print taken from the archives of the Italian ready-to-wear brand. Exclusively re-colored for this collection, it adds a joyful and elegant Pucci touch to the Guerlain products.

I will be featuring both the Pucci Meteorites Perles D’Azur and the Powder Brush. Besides the actual product packaging is adorned in the special Pucci prints, the inside of the box are also showing the same prints.

For the meteorites the outside box is again in a tin case with plastic interior. The box itself is in a standard navy blue shade whereas the top is the Pucci print. There is a total of 6 different colored pearls that I will be going over soon.

The Meteorites for this collection contain an enrichment known as a corrective blue pearl. The reason why there are so many different colored pearls is because the colors mashed together would easily even out on the skin and provide a radiant shine.

There pearl colors are as follows: blue, pink, beige, orange, ivory, and white gold pearls.

Before I show you the swatch look, let’s take a look at the Pucci Collector’s Brush. The brush comes in a stylish Pucci printed carrying case that coordinates with the meteorites. The head of the brush is in a dark midnight blue and black bristle, while the body of it is in a copper brown toned. Compared to the regular meteorites brush, the collectors one is even softer and feels really luxurious on the skin. So if you plan on getting the meteorites perles, I recommend picking up this brush as well.

Here is a swatch of the Meteorites taken with flash. It was very hard for the shimmers to show up on the camera with natural lighting. In real life, it looks more subtle and highly wearable. Besides the fine shimmers there are also sparse silver sparkles in the powder, but they don’t look chunky at all. Instead everything blends beautifully on the skin adding luminosity and radiance. I should say it complements almost any skin tone since there is a 6 different color pearls. It really brightens up the whole complexion. Being a Guerlain Meteorites Perles lover, I’m more drawn to the packaging than the product itself. The illuminating effect probably can be easily duped by other illuminating powders, so have that in mind. But still this is a gorgeous powder that worth collecting.

Guerlain and Pucci’s 2nd collaboration is just as exciting as the first. The prints and design are very well in line for the summer. Looking at it feels like a refreshing time of the year despite summer being usually hot. The brush is very easy to use, perfect for picking up the meteorites powder. It’s like a swish or two and you’re all set and ready to glow.

    I have been wanting these Meteorites SO BADLY! I’m worried about the sparkle. You mentioned exactly the issue I had with the Perles d’Or. The silver sparkles that you end up with sporadically on your face. They are small but they are also the flat kind of sparkle the I don’t care for on my face. I am still so tempted though! Those blue ballz are just so pretty!
    Thank you for your thorough review!

      I think it would be best if you swatch these inside the store before making a purchasing decision if it is applicable. It is more subtle than you think. I wanted these meteorites because of the Pucci design. 🙂

    The blue pearl stands out so much compared to the others. It’s probably there because of Pucci’s Winter Capri look.

      The blue pearl does stand out more. That is because everything else is so similar in color.

    Ohhh I was so looking forward to your review because of all the detail shots that you put out. The blue pearl seems to be at a very minimal compared to the rest?

      It is comparable in numbers to the rest. I think the blue just stands out more because it’s shade doesn’t really fit into the others.

    I am going to buy the meteorites and add it to my collection. As for the brush, have they improved on the hair?

      I believe it is still the same old hair.

    The meteorites look so subtle after applying it on. A little bit of shimmers and more looks so lovely.
