Guerlain 'Écrin 4 Couleurs' Eyeshadow Palette
Ordered this eye palette in Noir because I needed something neutral and because I've been searching for a very long time...I can't seem to find anything that doesn't irritate my eyes.
This eye palette did the job---finally! It's beautiful and it doesn't irritate my eyes. I don't wear primer (because I'm so sensitive) and this eyeshadow lasted throughout my work day 6:00am to 4:00pm). I plan on giving away all of my Chanel eyeshadows and ordering more of the Guerlain 4 Couleurs. Chanel eyeshadows have gotten too glittery for my taste---with a lot of fall-out that goes into my eyes and irritates them.
Guerlain is satiny/shimmery and illuminating---no glitter, no fall-out. Just received the Rose palette yesterday and it looks beautiful...plan on using it tomorrow to work. Looks like another winner!
Oh, I also tried the new Guerlain mascara and it is AMAZING! Beats the Dior Extase hands down. Funny, I stopped using the Dior Extase and my eyes don't water in the morning. All the time I thought it was sensitivity to my contacts but it was the Dior mascara.
I purchased this palette in the color Les Gris and it's absolutely gorgeous. The steel/green color in the center bottom is very elegant. The color payoff is good, but not so loud as to make my eyes look dirty, which some other dark eyeshadows usually do on my Asian NC 25 skin tone. I wore this eyeshadow with a blue-toned red lipstick to a formal party and got SO many compliments. I'm in love.
I have tried many high-end eyeshadows -- Tom Ford, Dior, Kevin Aucoin, etc. but nothing compares to Guerlain. The product glides on smoothly, and blending is so easy with how finely pressed the powders are. The shadows have good lasting power and I love how they are mixed and matched in each palette to make it so easy (and fun) to apply. My only complaint is I wish Guerlain would come out with some eyeshadow palettes in warmer shades, they tend to steer towards the cooler shades, although they are all beautiful.
I order pallette 03 LES VERTS, and i love it! I using this eyeshadow every day, and they very long-lasting!
