Guerlain Grey Charles Ecrin 1 Couleur Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Guerlain No.08 Grey Charles Ecrin 1 Couleur is one of the 12 new shades from spring 2015 Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos). I mentioned this shade before in the review of Guerlain Brownie & Clyde Ecrin 1 Couleur when I said these two have, in my opinion, the best formula from all of the new Guerlain matte eyeshadows.

Guerlain Brownie & Clyde Ecrin 1 Couleur Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Guerlain No.02 Brownie & Clyde Ecrin 1 Couleur is one of the best shades the new spring 2015 Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos) has to offer. Some of you may consider Guerlain Brownie & Clyde mono eyeshadow as a regular shade but I would have to say this is exactly the one that will complement any eye color, that can be used to define your brows as it is the perfect color for those light and medium skin tones, or just that must have nude brown that can be applied all over the lid, on the crease or just on the outer V to create a smoky eye or a classic nude makeup look.

Guerlain Pink Pong Ecrin 1 Couleuer Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

My belief is that I can never have too many pink eyeshadows and with this idea in mind Guerlain Pink Pong Ecrin 1 Couleuer was naturally the first mono eyeshadow from the new released Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos) that I tested and tried on. I mean who doesn’t love a new soft pink eyeshadow at the beginning of spring, when this season is all about soft and luminous shades?!  Well I do! After wearing Guerlain Pink Pong in several of my spring 2015 makeup looks (tutorial, photos) now I can write a full review.

Guerlain Hey Nude Ecrin 1 Couleur Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Guerlain No.04 Hey Nude Ecrin 1 Couleur is exactly that classical nude that couldn’t have missed from the new spring 2015 Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos). I would see a shade like Guerlain Hey Nude mono eyeshadow featured in every nude or naturals eyeshadow palette as it is just exactly that very shade closer to your skin tone that you need for blending.

Guerlain Hey Nude Ecrin 1 Couleur (165.00 Lei / $34.00 / £21.15 for 2 g) is a nude light beige with yellow undertones and subtle matte finish. It has a good color payoff and it looks more pigmented when applied over an eyeshadow primer. For me this is exactly the shade I would use for blending, that particular shade that you want to be closer to your skin tone, or the shade I would prefer for a natural day to day makeup look.

Guerlain White Ever Ecrin 1 Couleur Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

The new Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Spring 2015 Collection (review, swatches) couldn’t have been complete without its lightest shade, Guerlain No.10 White Ever mono eyeshadow. A beautiful, intense white powder eyeshadow like this one is a must and can be used in so many different ways. If you want to brighten up your eyes you can apply Guerlain White Ever Ecrin 1 Couleur right on the inner corner of your eye or on the brow bone to give luminosity to the entire makeup look. I admit I also used it as a highlighter and gently apply it right above the apples of my cheeks.

Hello sweeties!

After testing and playing with all the shades from Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos) for the past few weeks I’m ready to give you my opinion about each one of them. Guerlain No.07 Khaki Mono Ecrin 1 Couleur is actually one of the two powder eyeshadow from this collection which has a satin finish and it’s truly a wonderful deep pigmented color.

Hello beauties!

Guerlain No.03 Blue’s Brothers Ecrin 1 Couleur is one of the 12 new single powder eyeshadows released as part of Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection for spring 2015 (swatches, photos).

Guerlain Blue’s Brothers Ecrin 1 Couleur (165.00 Lei / $34.00 / £21.15 for 2 g) is a medium dark greyish blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It has a smooth and velvety texture which makes it apply with ease all over the lid. The color transfers on the lid with a more softer touch and it’s not that pigmented, deep and intense as I would preferred. It is a perfect dark navy blue but it’s not totally opaque so you will have to build up the color if you are looking for more than just a softer touch. Continue Reading

Guerlain Deep Purple Ecrin 1 Couleur Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Guerlain Spring 2015 Collection hit counters at the beginning of this month and the most interesting products were by far the new Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur shades (swatches, preview). I got see all the shades in person long before they became available and I brought home with me the entire collection so I had plenty of time to test each new Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur eyeshadow. I’ve already posted a Guerlain Deep Purple makeup look inspired by the shade with the same name that I’ll be reviewing today.

Guerlain Deep Purple Ecrin 1 Couleur (165.00 Lei / $34.00 / £21.15 for 2 g) is a medium purple powder eyeshadow with a hint of blue and cool undertones. It is officially described as a satin finish Guerlain eyeshadow but it leans more towards a subtle matte finish. It has a smooth, velvety formula once swatched but it feels also somehow a bit powdery as it has some fall out once applied on the lid. Continue Reading
