The Blush in the Plastic Bubble
Many a makeup artist has told me that cream blush is best for the winter months. The silky texture melts into dry cheeks and re-creates that fresh-off-the-slopes flush. Arriving just in time for the frigid days ahead is Guerlain’s limited-edition Météorites Bubble Blush. What makes this violet-scented version unique is not just the two vibrant shades that instantly brighten dull skin, but the applicator itself. Made in Japan (where many a genius beauty concept comes to life), the short base, unlike a traditional stick formula, makes it easy to tuck into your bag, and the rounded top effortlessly glides over your apples. Even better: No brush (or germy fingertips dipped into a pot) required.
