Guerlain 14 Les Fauves 4 Ecrin Couleurs Palette from Fall 2012 ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

As you may or may not have noticed I went on a bit of a shopping spree last weekend! I had seen some reviews of the Guerlain Les Fauves Ecrin 4 Couleurs palette but for some reason never gave them much thought. Cafe Makeup in particular was very won over by Les Fauves.

 I think maybe the fact the palette is so warm is what initially had me put it out of my mind but as soon as I swatched it in person and experienced the glorious pigment and texture I knew it had to be mine. This is just such an amazing palette of colours to bring out blue eyes. Unless you are very cool toned I recommend checking out this palette if you have blue eyes. Luckily I run cool-neutral with the added help of my red hair allowing me to wear warmer shades on my cool skin. 

There is a rich red toned brown, satin finish warm almost orange toned chocolate brown shade, a shimmering amber tan that surprised me with it’s complexity and a bright coral with a soft glow. The shades work beautifully together to create a flattering eye with a subtle twist on the typical neutrals. All the shades are smooth, pigmented, and blend beautifully.

When I tested this palette I used the top middle shade in the crease, right shade on the lid and inner corner, and the left shade on the outer v. Then I used the bottom coral shade as a blush. Yes a blush! I help myself from wondering how this gorgeous coral would perform as a blush and it worked magnificently. I will try to get a Face of the Day post up shortly.
I purchased this at Shoppers Drug Mart. The Guerlain Fall 2012 Femme Fatale Collection is also available at Holt Renfew, The Bay, Sephora,  Nordstrom,  and Neiman Marcus.

    Very pretty, though I know it would be too warm for me, so I’ll just sit here and admire it :)
