I wonder how the Pearl Foundation Primer will compare to the Guerlain one? Since it’s composed of multi-coloured beads already, I am interested to see if it would do the same colour correction the Guerlain Meteorites powder does, kind of like a combination of the properties of the primer and powder.

BTW, have you heard of the upcoming launch of the Calvin Klein One line? What are your thoughts on that since I remember you were a strong advocate of Calvin Klein returning to the beauty world.

Hi Ebontien,

I am guessing that this primer will be quite glowy and pearly. Indeed, I think the main function of this primer is color correction. Even though I don’t usually use primers, I am looking forward to testing it at the counter. (The product looks very pretty as well…)

Yes, I have come across news on CK One’s new color cosmetics line. While I look forward to seeing the products, I have to wonder how well the line will do this time and how long it will last. Of course you remember that the Calvin Klein beauty line was relaunched in 2007 (and thank you so much again for sending me the images then). It was relaunched in the UK in 2008, but the (only) counter vanished within a year. I really hope it will do better this time. (I will post about the line later on.)

Thank you for posting your comment again! :)
