Guerlain Meteorites Perles Summer 2010:L’Instant d’Un Reve, L’Instant d’Une Emotion

Part of the Guerlain summer collection was the addition of 4 single shadows which will be permanent. I bought two shades, both £19 each.
L’Instant d’Un Reve is a slightly shimmery cool toned brown/taupe.
L’Instant d’Une Emotion is a dark slightly shimmery green charcoal.

Although both are pigmented and last really well, I did find them slightly difficult to blend in the crease compared to my other brands. I’m mostly using them as lids shades so this isn’t a problem for me but thought it worth mentioning. Blending aside, L’lnstant d’une Émotion is a really beautiful rich complex shade.
The other two shades I didn't get are L’Instant D’un Baiser, sheer frosty white peach and L’Instant D’Un Caresse, this looked better in the pan, when I swatched it I only got very sheer silver shimmer.


  1. Oh no! I've been trying to NOT cave and buy that taupe Guerlain shadow. You're photos are tempting me, lol.

  2. oh god I fell in love with both of those when I saw them at counters!! The texture is just unbeatable and they're both such perfect smokey colours.... like Sabrina said, you're really tempting me haha xx

  3. L'instant d'un reve has now become a staple. I absolutely love it and, like yourself, I mainly use it as a lid colour. It gives a beautiful definition to my hooded eyes...(amug, moi???? non!!!)
    Have a lovely Sunday!

  4. Hi Sabrina,
    I do think you would like this shade, although you probably have similar colours. Your blog is ALWAYS tempting me, so glad to do the same on this occasion ;)

    Hi Stephanie,
    You must have restraint if you swatched them and didn't get them, that was my downfall :)

    Hello Nina,
    My eyes seem to be getting more hooded, guess that's from being the wrong side of 30! I think its a very foolproof shade, I think I'd rather not be into Guerlain lately though as I think those fall palettes are really going to cost me, can only narrow it down to three I want, thats not very good is it! xx
