Guerlain Meteorites Pearly Whites 05 Absolute White
A new piece was added to my collection today (although I've already included it in the pictures in the post below) in the form of the newest Asian exclusive Meteorites. A very lovely lady on MUA CP'd it for me from Hong Kong, it's called 05 Absolute White. This is the third time now Guerlain has released an Asian exclusive shade, after 00 White Pearls (in 2006?) and 04 Pastel White (summer 2009) titled Guerlain Meteorites Pearly White. (Shades number 01, 02 and 03 are in the permanent line, the other limited edition shades don't get numbers.) As the name suggests, these pearls are all very light, either very pastely coloured pearls mixed with white pearls, or in the case of the new ones, entirely white with very subtle shimmer to them. Here are some photos of this gorgeous powder, and also a couple of swatches. Please note that I swatched it very heavily (there was a lot of powder on the puff on top of the balls), you would not put this much powder on your face, so it wouldn't look white on you, just act as a subtle shimmery highlighter.
