There’s no doubt that the holidays are a magical time of year, and nowhere is that more evident than with Neiges & Merveilles for Christmas 2015 from Guerlain. One of the star pieces of the collection, Météorites Flocons Enchantés (French for ‘enchanted snowflakes’), takes the brand’s cult-fave face pearls and transforms them into a Winter Wonderland – complete with a snowball-like casing. Have you melted yet?

Météorites Flocons Enchantés, Limited Edition (CAN $89.00) | Let’s begin with the case: luminous/pearly white & globe-shaped with a band of golden snowflakes, bearing a gold underlay imprinted with snowflake designs & the Guerlain ‘G’ on the lid, but which appears to be seen as though through frosted glass. Upon opening, you’re greeted by a kitten-soft white puff and its golden satin bow, that not only serves to protect the treasure held beneath, but makes for a useful applicator as well. Within, the skin-illuminating face pearls come in warm-leaning shades of nude, light beige/pink, and palest gold with a dash of coolness provided by the pearly white stars thrown into the mix. The product bears the brands iconic violet fragrance (and while clearly obvious at first, the scent dissipates fairly quickly upon application – or at least, I don’t notice it any more).

Trying to describe what Météorites do, is about as easy as capturing a mythical unicorn (see the swatch below; the varying tones are almost impossible to capture in photographs); basically this is a face setting powder that is meant to provide a natural and totally subtle luminosity to the skin. The powder of each pearl is incredibly finely milled – so much so, that it’s almost invisible or rather, it’s probably closer to the truth to say that this fine texture helps it meld and fuse with your skin, without being obvious or sitting at surface level. The slight gradation in tones also work to provide dimension and to avoid appearing flat & dull when swept along the face.

There’s something undeniably special about Météorites Flocons Enchantés, something you (and anyone looking at you) will be hard-pressed to say exactly what that is, but it gives the skin the most gorgeous radiance you’ve ever experienced – and never over the top. My preferred way of using these pearls, is by swirling a large face brush through them, then applying that to key areas: cheekbones, hairline, bridge of the nose, décolleté and cupid’s bow.

Ever have someone ask what you’ve done to your skin to make it look so amazing? Well, THAT is the effect that Guerlain’s Meteorites provide, and this year’s Flocons Enchantés version with its Wintery theme adds an extra level of ooh-la-la via the addition of its shimmery white stars. I’m going to stop here, because this is something you need to try for yourself to understand what I mean; no amount of words or photos can capture its essence (and God knows I tried), but that might explain why devotees passionately collect these little balls of fairy dust. And even though this is a limited edition item and pretty much disappeared off the shelves before it could even be stocked, you may still be able to score one at your nearest Guerlain counter – but I wouldn’t wait too long.

The Guerlain Neiges & Merveilles Christmas 2015 Collection is available now through The Bay, Nordstrom, and Sephora stores across Canada. Find more information via www.guerlain.com
