There isn't a whole lot that has thrilled me from Guerlain in the past couple of collections. I've picked up a few items here and there, but certainly wasn't wowed. That all changed with the Spring 2014 Météorites Blossom Collection. My favorite part of this collection is the Les Tendres Écrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette, featured in this post.
What Nordstrom says about the Guerlain Écrin 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 Tendres is a quartet of shades you may be used to seeing more-so in the Fall and Winter months rather than spring, but the demureness of the shades makes them a perfect look for spring. The pale iridescent pink and frosty mint green aren't too saturated, making them easily wearable when used with caution. The satin taupe and cranberry shades are just pigmented enough to achieve the perfect wash of color over the eye lid.
All four shades were lovely and easy to work with. The mint shade is perhaps the least showy in terms of the color and also the most frosty. It was perfect for the inner corners of the eye. The swatch above shows the color much better than it would show up when used lightly on the eye.
Below I used the mint green shade at the inner corners & at the arch, the taupe on the lid, the cranberry in the crease and the pink shade to blend out the crease and to highlight. The liner is MAC Past Twilight Fluidline and the mascara is Too Faced Better Than Sex & Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant layered:
