My Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Couleurs "Collection"

Apologies: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I no longer do it. ^__^ Wanted to give you something new and nicer to look at, (rather than my ugly skin in my previous post!) so here's a picture-intensive post. :D I tried out Guerlain last year, starting with the Meteorites, then later their eyeshadow and other base makeup. I loved all their makeup products, but especially became hooked on the soft texture, sheer but buildable pigment and classy colour combinations of Guerlain's Ombre Eclat 4 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes. They are very work-friendly yet also able to create interesting, striking eye looks. The palettes quickly multiplied into this bunch that you see in this post today. I love using them on a daily basis. I've purchased every one of these at a discount but I confess I'd be willing to part with my money for the limited edition palettes at full price if need be. Recently, I picked up one of their blush as well. I really enjoy Guerlain's beautifiul packaging as well as the quality of the products. I'll just leave you with the photos. Hope you enjoy them. :D

Ohh... you have a lovely collection! I have Perles De Mers, but I feel, I'm neglecting it too much!

I really wanted to get Bal De Nuit too! But it was not that flattering on me for some reason. So, I skipped. Good for my purse, hehe...

Hmm, Bronze Dore really appeals to me, for some reason! I don't usually gravitate towards any greens. Great collection!

Great collection! I've only swatched these at the store, they're beautiful. I totally missed out on Bal de Minuit, I loved that one!

I'm lemming Guerlain e/s palettes! But the two sephoras near me don't carry them! I guess that's a good thing... :P

tenoria said...

So gorgeous! Do you have any tips for picking up Guerlain at a discount? I've always coveted the quads, but can't quite bear to shell out full price!

Peggy said...

Wow! I love the color shades! Have you heard of LuckyChic.com? It is a fun new site the offers great deals on luxury items. You should check it out, I got an awesome deal on a beauty gift card.

Whitney said...

WOW! I am extremely impressed (and a little jealous- in a good way). I love collecting high end palettes, but I have yet to expand my guerlain range :)

Angie said...
