Review and Swatches: Guerlain Crazy Meteorites Compact Powder

Guerlain Crazy meteorites compacts2Guerlain is releasing a meteorites compact for Spring 2015 (limited edition?). There’s not much info on it yet  though it’s likely cheaper than their Voyage Mythic meteorites compact (permanent). Now here’s the thing. I’m a user of the meteorites pearls for years and years, but never bothered to get the compact version because I thought it would be redundant (not to mention the Voyage is hella expensive). BUT I splurged on last year’s Crazy meteorites compact holiday edition, and lemme tell ya, I love it so much I bought another one as back-up!

What are the pros over the pearls? The compact is great for travel and on-the-go application. The scent is nice especially on the stank airplane next to dudes. I can’t say it will be true for other meteorites compacts but the Crazy compact has very good oil control property. It’s expensive but I think the value is there. I have used mine for one year and I think I’m only halfway down the compact.

Don’t be like me. Get yourself one of those meteorites compacts, especially if you’re already loving the pearls. Spring 2015 is not too far away – save your money and start peeling your eyes for its arrival cause it will sell out fast. If you’re not yet a user of the meteorites pearls, and are thinking about trying a meteorites, I say go for the compact first IF you can get a hand at the cheaper Non-Voyage version. I guess you can get the Voyage Mythic refill but it’s going to be a hassle to find a casing for it, no?
