Normally I do not buy this brand. Financially, I can't make it a habit. They are UBER expensive (though the packaging is divine). I usually am not completely floored by them either. Like if I'm going to pay THAT much I better LOVE it, no questions asked.
Recently I saw some swatches of Guerlain d'Un Soupir Eyeshadow, part of the Spring 2011 line. Fell. In. Love. Exactly the dark brown shade I'd been looking for to use as an all over eye shade. You can just do so much with this shade. It's easily blendable and can be paired with anything. It would also be a beautiful liner. You'll get your money's worth here for sure.
The packaging is Guerlain, so it's gorgeous. Easy to finger print up, but nice and heavy. It looks rich, and classy. Another bonus, it has a mirror! I just love when little compacts have a mirror ;) (you can click any of the pics to enlarge)
The swatch shows just how pigmented and beautiful this shadow is. I didn't have to dig to get it dark, it's just how it is. Love.
Get ready... The Guerlain Eyeshadow in d'Un Soupir retails for $36 (yes, for ONE shadow) at fine retailers. I clicked around online looking for a site that still had it in stock to link back to, but it isn't listed anymore. I'm not sure if it sold out or whats going on, but it isn't LE, as far as I can tell. I bought this one from Bloomingdales.com.
