I am somewhat new to Guerlain cosmetics, but so far, they have impressed me completely. I was sold on the new Four-Color Eye Shadow Palette for Fall 2011 because they are seriously mistake-proof, blendable, simple and a mix of finishes. For those who want a finished look with more dimension to their eyes without a lot of fuss, these are worth the lux price tag.
I tried both the Les Fumés and Les Noirs with smashing results. For me, the Les Noirs (pictured below) was more sutable to a big look and a night on the town. I layered the shades and got a bold smokey look. The palette contained quite a bit of pigment. The Le Fumés was more neutral and can easily be worn at work or during the day. The matte base shade, top center, worked really well with the natural color of my lid. This quad is pictured bottom left in the second image.
The texture of the shadows is silky but you still get a powder effect so they are easy to work with and blend. You can easily wear the shades separately, but I encourage trying all four layered because the effect is a total wow. I applied the lightest shade on my lid to the brow. Second lightest to the crease, third in the crease and fourth over my liner.
If you are out and about at your Neiman’s this is worth checking out.
