Guerlain Crazy Pearls Illuminating Powder

Guerlain is one beauty counter you might overlook when you’re looking for a new eye shadow or you need a refill on your foundation, but it shouldn’t be. Guerlain’s one of the most storied and luxe makeup brands around thanks to a heritage that goes back to the French aristocracy and prime real estate on Place Vendôme back in Paris. And while you might just pass it off as a brand for women of a certain age, Guerlain’s got some new tricks up its sleeve that you won’t be able to resist. Case in point: the new Holiday 2013 collection, which infuses a few of the brand’s classic products with a jolt of shocking neon.

Our pick from the collection is the limited edition Crazy Pearls Illuminating Powder ($58), which takes the usual mix of soft, shimmering skin tones usually found in Guerlain’s classic Meteorites powder and adds soft lavender (to counteract sallow skin) as well as a near-glowing hot pink. Don’t be scared, swirling a brush over the mix of pink, pale purple, gold, beige and pearl will give you a perfectly glowing complexion that looks like you’re shining from within. No obvious sparkle, no disco ball shimmer — just the perfect amount of ethereal glow. Brush it on all over as a finishing powder or use it as a highlighter on your cheeks and collarbones, either way, this little canister of wonder will last you long after the holidays.

Available at Sephora.
