Guerlain launched some seriously saucy items for Fall 2012, and I'm totally late on getting to the goods! One of the more beautiful items out of a sea of gorgeousness is the new L’Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 14 Les Fauves.
What the Nordstrom website has to say about the Guerlain L’Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette:
The essence of color: one palette, four shades. Create, have fun and dare to wear color as an accessory. These palettes were specifically designed to be used together and can be mixed, matched and blended with no fear of mistakes. Application is extremely simple, intuitive, fun—and risk-free! Choose your range: each palette offers iridescent, matte, satin and metallic shadows.
Les Fauves is a quartet of shades that might not scream "Fall" to you. Personally, this is an eye look I'd more likely gravitate to in the Summer months. I tend to like a darker and more saturated eye in the colder months.
That being said, the texture of the shadows is lovely. The coral shade was slightly chalky but still didn't give me any issues. I didn't have any fall out on my cheeks while applying but for some reason I noticed some shadow shakin's on my hand, so you may want to be careful. Everything blended well, applied well, lasted the day... Packaging is heavy and luxe, as is usual with Guerlain. 5 stars all around!
This palette leans VERY warm, so if you pull to that side it's definitely a must have.
For this EOTD, I began with a thin layer of UDPP. I used the frosty tan shade (right) for the inner third of the eye and the coral shade (bottom) on the rest of the lid. The warm brown shade (top) is in the crease and blended up, while the dark brown shade (left) is in the outer V and blended into the crease color. I used a bit more of the tan shade (right) to blend above the crease. Benefit Watt's Up was used to highlight and the mascara is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill.
