Guerlain Ombre Eclat 6 Couleurs #68 Champs-Elysees
As you might have already noticed, I really like Guerlain. Their limited editions well thought out, they always feature a theme and all products are well matched (colours, packaging). Guerlain’s fall LE’s are one of my favourites. Guerlain ecrin 6 couleurs all have a stunning case and that imprint is absolutely amazing. They all come with a velvet pouch and a brush (which I don’t use, I just prefer my own brushes). This palette contains five eyeshadows (pearly silver white, medium ashy grey, medium brown taupe, deep grey brown, vivid purple, deep black). Besides the pearly white, which is glittery and sheer (amazing as a top coat) and the deep black (matte) all the other shades are satin, with a hint of very fine shimmer. The staying power is amazing and those eyeshadows don’t accentuate my dry lids (while I was washing off my swatches, I also noticed that they are quite water resistant and I had to use an oil cleanser, most of the time I can wash off my swatches with warm water only).
The purple shade is very similar to Guerlain’s Khol in Blu Acqua, just a bit deeper. This purple shade is one of my most used purples as for now. I really like wearing purple and grey together.
