Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Shades Eyeshadow in Velours d'Or (410)

8:19 PM

Velours d'Or (Holiday 2010 Collection) was the answer to my long search for a kick-ass smokey purple quad. Yep, this is another episode of me "falling-in-love-at-first-sight" with an inanimate object. Don't judge me. I can't help it! The luxurious gold packaging, the intricate honeycomb pattern and the lovely shades definitely caught my attention.

It is a beautiful quad that contains a shimmery soft gold, a darkened plum with tiny blue shimmers, a duochrome mauvey taupe with violet shimmers and a matte black with duochrome sheen. There was a bit of fall out with the soft metallic gold shade (and it is a quite sheer) but the other three shades were soft, pigmented and very easy to apply. Over all, these shadows blend effortlessly and compliment each other perfectly for that stunning smokey plum look!
