Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette 503 Les Tendres for Spring 2014 | Photos, Swatches, Review

Guerlain Les Tendres1

The Spring 2014 Guerlain Meteorites Blossom Colletion brings us this stunning new Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 503 Les Tendres. Oh my goodness I can’t imagine another spring release beating this quad for me at the moment. I know the colour combination may seem a little odd at first but as usual Guerlain knows how to work magic.

The palette starts with a gorgeous, eye brightening shimmering soft rose beige. Then the star of the palette. A shimmering aqua green that really enhances the eye brightening effect. Next is a satin finish taupe nude. A perfect crease shade. The palette is rounded out by a matte violet plum to add intensity to the look. My favourite way to be wear it (mind you I love it so much I keep wearing it this way rather than further experimenting!) is to wear the rose beige all over the lid and in the inner corner of the eye. I apply the taupe nude in the crease and then intensify the out corner and into my crease with the matte plum. Then the final touch that makes this look so special is a line my lower lash line with the pale aqua as well as dabbing it with my finger on the centre of my lid. Somehow the aqua works perfectly with the other shades. It doesn’t stand out as “oh hai that chick is wearing aqua eyeshadow” but rather it gives the look an added eye opening, brighting effect and added interest. It is a perfect everyday look that looks natural, soft, PRETTY, and makes it impossible to look away from your eyes. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. All the shades are soft, buttery, and have good pigmentation. Even the matte plum is so smooth.

Guerlain Meteorites Bubble Blush in Cherry | Spring 2013 Meteorites Blossom Collection | Photos, Swatches, Review

Guerlain Meteorites Bubble1

Inspired by the round shape of the iconic Guerlain Meteorites Pearls is the new, and uber cute, Guerlain Meteorites Bubble Blush ($48 CAD) for Spring 2014.

This blush is so darn cute! I love the bubble shape. The white plastic packaging is certainly not what I expect from Guerlain but I suppose it’s suits the more cutesy vibe of this product. It is very heavy on the delicious Violet candy scent that I adore. The shade Cherry is a very pigmented, and bright, cherry pink. I love these kinds of shades in a cream formula as they are very close to my natural flush. The formula is very lightweight and non sticky so it makes it easy to blend out so you don’t end up looking like you were just out in -30 degree Celsius weather getting frostbite on your cheeks. Oh wait… I was. The only issue I had with this formula is that for some reason it seemed like it was crafted by some mad scientist to ruthless seek out pores on my skin I didn’t even know existed. I don’t consider myself to have a pore issue. This travesty is of course averted when you are applying over a pore filling primer or foundation, but on bare skin watch out!

Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Gloss in 900 Star Dust | Spring 2014 Meteorites Blossom Collection | Photos, Swatches, Review

Guerlain Star Dust1

The Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in 900 Star Dust has a beauty that is unfortunately incredibly hard to capture on camera. It is a sheer gloss full of fine iridescent white shimmer that flashes aqua blue.  It is not as dramatic an effect as depicted in the promotional image below but it is more more noticeable than my photos depict.

I am in love with this gloss. This is my first experience with the Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer formula. It is an exquisite formula. It has a light cushy feel and no stickiness. I must say I am so impressed with the quality of lip gloss releases lately. So many incredible formulas to love! The shade 900 Star Dust gives a magical effect to the lips whether worn on bare lips or as a transforming lipstick topper. I thought it might be kind of boring worn alone but it is actually really lovely and I have been wearing it that way quite a bit.

I really wish I could have captured the beautiful icy tones of blue and aqua in my swatches better but you will have to take my word on how beautiful it is.

There is also a matching shade of La Laque Couleur nail polish that I imagine must be fabulous.
