Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic

IMBB Sponsored Product Review

Off late I am on a radiance trip – meaning, I am getting attracted towards all things which add glow, radiance, highlighting, etc. Its interesting. Till now my only experience with this category of product was the Bobbi Brown Shimmer bricks and very recently, MAC Strobe Lotion but now I am intrigued to try the Benefit high beam, Hourglass Ambient powders, Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder. Another product fitting in this category is the iconic product fom Guerlain – Meteorite Voyage Pressed Powder – something which has been on my lust list since ages! IMBB made my day (and month) by allowing me to bring this baby home! This is not really a highlighter though – it’s a whole new product category – a finishing product to be dusted onto your face to add subtle radiance! Not shimmer, not highlighting but “radiance”! So does it do that? Is it worth the hype? Lets find out…


The Product (from the website):

Météorites Voyage, the quintessence of colour-blending expertise is revealed in an exceptional case to reproduce the purest radiance on the skin. A blend of matte and pearly shades, an ingenious mixture of six correcting or light-enhancing colours to deliver the purest radiance to all complexions: pink to refresh the complexion, green to diminish redness, white for a brighter complexion, mauve to catch the light, gold and pearl to add a perfect touch of radiance to the face…
The complexion appears even, radiant and luminous with a soft, light and matte finish.
Its single shade, Mythic, offers universal correction and natural brightening of the complexion. Refillable powder case.




Fragrance: Pleasure for the eyes and senses… Météorites Voyage powder announces the return of sunny days with its delicate and inimitable violet scent. An addictive fragrance…

Application: The ideal Météorites brush is the perfect density to take just the right amount of powder. 
Apply the powder evenly to entire face to create a soft halo of light. Concentrate on the middle of the face, from the hairline to the base of the neck, to boost the highlighting effect.





$175.00 in US / INR 8850 for 8gms
A little disappointing to have only 8 gms of product for that price tag.


It consists of a heavy metal compact with what I think is enamel detailing.. . though it gives impression of mother of pearl. The compact is fairly heavy – not ideal to be slipped into your clutch but is slim enough, in case you do want to take it along. It comes with a velvet sleeve to help prevent scratches onto the metal body.


All in all, the packaging is luxe and screams high-end while still being understated. Love that!

My experience with Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic

The shade I Picked is #01 Mythic – this is the only shade part of the permanent line. New shades of the product get launched periodically as part of an Limited Edition collection like Wulong, Crazy, etc.


The product is a prism of different coloured powders – pink, green, mauve, beige, champagne, pink-gold, white – the colors are supposed to work in harmony. “Three correcting colors: a mauve that catches the light and brightens the complexion, a pink that refreshes tired complexions and a green that reduces redness. Three light-enhancing colors: a white to infuse the complexion with light, with no chalky effect, a champagne to make the skin sparkle and radiate, and a pink gold to unify olive complexions and warm up fair skin tones.” So does it do all that individually? Not quite. Once you swirl your brush through it, what you get is a pretty much translucent powder giving a radiant effect.


IMO, individual effect of the colours will anyways not work because after all the product is a finishing powder. So you will apply it on top of your base (foundation), blush, etc. By the time this one is ready to go onto the face, the redness, sallowness, dullness have already been taken care of by the base makeup. If you were to apply this without makeup on your direct skin, then maybe those colours would come into play but the amount of each would be too negligible to have any individual effect. Know what I mean?


The product is a finely milled, extremely smooth and easy to apply. Although, Guerlain promotes the use of their own Meteorite brush for use with the meteorite pearls and these Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed powder, I used my Estee Lauder Powder Brush for the application.


So, did I like it? I loved it!! Its gives a nice subtle glow – a radiant effect but very very subtle. So there is no shimmer, no glitter (not even fine) – just a glowy radiance. I could not show you pics with this because the effect is so subtle. This is obviously the effect over foundation and blush, etc. The product is a finishing powder but can also double as a setting powder for your makeup.


When I tried the product on my face without any makeup – no primer, no foundation – the effect was non-existent. The product just didn’t show up. This I feel was due to a mix of things – my skintone (NC30), pigmentation on my skin (acne marks / sun damage) and unevenness of the skintone. It might still work without makeup on a clear Caucasian skin tone.


Please note, the product melts into the skin – it is not designed to provide any coverage.

To sum this up for you:

Pros of Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic

1. Extremely finely-milled and smooth pressed powder
2. Gives an amazing Radiance effect to the skin.
3. Not discernible – melts into the skin.
4. It does not make the skin look dry, patchy or blotchy or white.
5. Keeps the skin radiant for about 5 hours.
6. Easy to apply


Cons of Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic

1. Only 8 gms of product.

IMBB Rating – 4.5/5




So, DO I recommend Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic?

Hmmmmmm….OK! Let me put it this way – as a product, it is great. But do you really NEED to go out and shell that amount on this – not really. Its not a NEED to have product. You can live without it. But if you have the money for it and have always wondered whether it will work on the Indian skin tone – yes, it does! Albeit, as a finishing product – over your makeup.

And would I repurchase Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Exceptional Pressed Powder #1 Mythic? Yes, when this gets over, I am likely to repurchase. But I will not be breaking into a sweat, if I don’t! Kapish?

    1. Yes, its quite breathtakingly beautiful! Guerlain knows how to doll up their products!!Im just so happy that it worked – was very sceptical! *happy dance* *happy dance* *happy dance*

  2. very nice review….throwing light on every aspect of its usage….to make it clear if its the necessity or enhancement tool….
    the packaging is sooooo luxe…i mean so beautiful… *drool* *drool*
    i also love any product which gives nice dewy, glowy effect…
    KK, u have such great taste and u pick all bang on products….great product choice from the IMBB sponsored list…glad u liking it too!

    1. *thankyou* Anuradha! Good to hear from you! Yes, with the price tag – i owed it to the readers to be clear on whether its a NEED product or WANT product. I am so thankful to IMBB for giving me this opportunity to review this product.

      If you like something which gives glowy effect – a product coming up soon for review…picked it up this weekend and have been using it every single day – just love it!!!

  3. I would rather invest money in handbags…nice review kk n glad it worked for u…even that “glow” fever has hit me recently, will benefit high beam suit oily n acne skin gals? As per rati, it may not suit. Which one should i buy? *headbang* benefit or bobbi brown shimmer brick or the body shop shimmer waves or highlighters from bare minerals

    1. “I would rather invest money in handbags…” rofl

      I have not tried the Benefit High Beam yet – i intend to pick it up next month – either high beam or sun beam. Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks are a great product but a huge dent in terms of investment – what if it doesn’t work for you… TBS and BAre Minerals i haven’t tried. What exactly are you looking for – a radiance to your skin OR highlighting (like on the cheekbones, etc)?

      For radiance to your skin – I would suggest you to check MAC Strobe Lotion – mixed with foundation, this creates an awesome radiance. Cheaper option than the Guerlain Voyage.

      For highlighting – I recently tried a MAC product (picked it last week – will review next week) – found it to be an awesome highlighter – its cream based but dries up on skin. And you have colour options so can pick something which blends well with the skin without creating a white jhatak pronounced shimmer. Im absolutely loving the product.

      1. I use bare minerals powder foundation kk..I am looking for radiance n highlighter..want that glow in my face..after moving us from india, bcoz of the weather here my skin is looking want something to get back that glow..will be waiting for ur review then..

  4. What a beautiful case, K! I’d love to pull that out for touch ups 😛 but for that price I’d rather get a pair of shoes, or two!

    1. “…I’d rather get a pair of shoes, or two!” rofl rofl rofl rofl You are nuts!!! Yes, the case is very luxe – if it wasn’t so heavy, it would find a permanent place in my bag!

  5. really super pretty case and u did full justice to every aspect of this stuff.. *clap* *clap*
    Really super duper gorgeous pick kk.. *clap* *clap*
    But it works with foundatio n primer.. *scared* I dnt use foundation now a days, dnt think it will show up on me as I do hv scars n zits, almost same skin types as urs I guess.. *hifive* *nababana*

    1. *thankyou* Neetu! Your skin is much clearer than mine Gurrl but yes, it really needs a clean canvas to show its magic.

      Hugs to Aadya!! *puchhi* *puchhi*

  6. It seems like a really nice product to add that glow and finishing touch to the makeup, I liked the swatch too since I too am trying to add that elusive glow to my skin, albeit even after having oily skin! And, of course, anything pink is always my weakness! Lovely review, KK. 🙂

  7. 175$ *shock* *shock* OMG, i can live without this, i rather invest in Handbag, u got lucky, IMBB makes our wishes come true, great review as always *hifive* , packaging in luxe…loved it, and the colors in product makes it interesting

    1. “OMG, i can live without this, i rather invest in Handbag…” rofl rofl rofl

      Yes, feel very lucky and pampered by IMBB to have been allowed to pick a dream product! It definitely is an amazing product but i might keep it for special days and use my MAC Strobe lotion on others!! 🙂 🙂

  8. ohhhh my god it is a pure luxuryyyyyy *woot* *woot* *woot* *woot* it looks soooo awesome man… the packaging is ultimateeee *happy dance* *happy dance* *happy dance* the pressed powder also looks sooo unique… congo you got such an awesome product *happy dance* *happy dance*

    1. I know the feeling Shikha when you are too scared to spoil the product by using it – i feel that each time a use a new lippy!
