I must have done something very good at some point in my life, to be lucky enough to come across these things. I have been using Mythic 01 for years, Pink Fresh 02 for quite some time, and I have recently purchased Winter Radiance. I also plan to try Beige Chic 03 in the near future. I have special uses for each. Mythic 01 is my staple -- it is my final step to my finished face, I even use it over the other two powders if I'm wearing them. Makeup artists have discovered that putting certain colours on your face help even the skin tone and make it look naturally gorgeous, which is why the balls are all sorts of crazy colours, like a pack of California Dreams. They flatter the skin and make it GLOW. I wear Pink Fresh 02 for two specific faces; the undone no-makeup look and when I have smokey eyes and nude lips, in which blush or my Dandelion doesn't seem appropriate. It adds colour and luminosity to my very pale skin. Winter Radiance, was of course, purchased for winter, since my skin becomes terribly dry and gray during this time (even though I am currently living in So Cal!) and the pastel colours add that special glow that I am lacking at this time. Therefore, I recommend this product to anyone. Absolutely amazing. It's your skin but better, WAY better.
Great powder, highlights very subtly and I really enjoy using it. Its probably not the 'be all end all' of powders but it works and is beautiful and I'm very happy I bought it. UPDATE: yeah, I still love the powder, but the packaging is a paaaaaaain to open.
I have wanted to try this product for a long time and I finally decided to check it out when I was at Saks in NYC in October. The MAs convinced me that the new, limited edition "Winter Radiance" was the perfect match for me (I have a fair, peach/pink complexion, blonde hair and blue eyes). I had to agree that it looked fabulous after she applied it and I bought it! She said any of the other colors would have been "ok", but since I have a bit of a pink tone to my skin she was afraid any but the Winter Radiance and Beige would be too pink for my skin. It's great! I use it almost everyday and it hasn't caused my skin to breakout or become irritated at all. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to give their skin a beautiful, healthy, natural "glow"! Pretty expensive but this product will last forever, it seems.
Ok packaging. Rather expensive and it's not all that great for evening skin tone. Nice subtle shimmer effect but not that impressive.
There are no words that could contain my undying love for these tiny little globes of magic. I simply swirl a powder brush lightly and brush on top of a light tinted moisturizer - it looks nice at first but an hour later, it looks like unbelievable, soft, soft-focus, angelic glow. No obvious glitter, just gorgeous lit-from-within radiance. Love, love, love, love it. I like the violet scent, but to each her own (it is rather noticeable, imo). Simply unbelievable, it is worth every penny and then some.
These meteorites balls powder (Mythic, Beige Chic and Fresh Pink) are, in my opinion, very versatile. I have all three and they complement my tan complexion. I never have been so excited about a makeup product before. I put on whichever I am in the mood for but I reach for the (03) more. Each gives a distinctive finish. For a office professional makeup... go for Mythic. The Fresh Pink looks great even on a bare face!! My favorite is the Beige Chic. It evens out my "make-up"!! Those shimmer are not really obvious at all. However when I tried them on my hand, I saw a lot of glitter but not so once I applied them on my face. The meteorites ball just illuminate my whole look. Like others said... a soft glow..... The scent can be offending to some but I couldnt detect any scent when I applied them on.
**UPDATE** This makes other pressed powder looked "powdery" in comparison, even my Chanel/YSL!! But the meteorites dont control oil as good as them though.
I just tried this today at Saks in the Winter Radiance - I really didn't want to (I was after the Divinora mascara), but I let her put some on me. Honestly, I was really impressed with the subtle yet definite difference I saw in the mirror! I had a brighter, more refreshed look and my skin just glowed! Usually I stay away from powders during the fall/winter because my skin gets flaky, but many hours later when I returned home, my 'glow' was still going strong and the powder itself had not emphasized any flakiness whatsoever. So, (as you've probably guessed!), I'm back to Saks tomorrow during lunch to pick this up! You should definitely try this if you're fair to light/medium - the MA said this looks too 'white' on darker skins.
I recently broke down and ordered three of my most extravagant lemmings: this, T. Le Clerc powder and YSL Touche Eclat. This is probably my favorite. I really don't understand how it works. The balls are the most bizarre colors which I would normally never consider putting on my face alone, never mind all mixed together. But somehow it really does give my face a beautiful, translucent, "lit from within" radiant glow. I liked it so much I got Beige Chic too, which I like, but the original is my favorite. I did not get the brush, which I've heard is crappy, but instead have been using a Sephora bronzer brush and it works very well.
Bought this in the 2006 red collection.I love it.The gold and red balls give alot of warmth to your face without being over colored,as I thought it might be at first.Its really nice and glad I bought it.Its a L.E.I also have winter radiance,Pink fresh and beige/golden.
This is one of the most unique products I have ever used and it does add the most subtle glow with no real noticeable shimmer (kinda important for the office!). The container is pretty, but I find the cardboard kinda cheap, considering the price.
