FOTD: Écrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette – 10 Rue Des Frances-Bourgeois

Had time to play with the goodies from the last Luxasia sale from 3 days ago!

10 Rue Des Frances-Bourgeois

swatches

This is a very warm neutral palette consisting of a mixture of matte, pearlescent and shimmer shades. The colours in this palette reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked Palette but there weren’t any absolute dupes. The matte highlighting shade in the top left corner matches my NC20 skin perfectly and makes a great powder base. These shadows don’t swatch well at all and appeared rather chalky but the colours translated perfectly onto the eyes. The soft texture also makes blending a breeze and as such, I was able to use all 6 shades at one time using only one shadow brush and one blending brush.

I also used the Guerlain Parure Aqua Radiant Feel-Good foundation today along with this look.

Eyes: Guerlain Écrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette – 10 Rue Des Frances-Bourgeois, Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner – Black/Brown, Maybelline Volum’ Express Mascara, ZA Impact Lash Volume Mascara (lower lashes)

Face: Guerlain Parure Aqua Radiant Feel-Good Foundation, Amazing Cosmetics Concealer – Light Golden on undereyes, Guerlain Meteorites Perles – 01 Mythic as setting powder

Cheeks: MAC Well-Dressed, Terra del Sol #7 as highlighter

Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine – 57 Adventure

This is a lovely palette to own because it is simply so easy to whip up a neutral yet sophisticated eyeshadow look with this. The shadows feel smooth to the touch but are rather powdery. However I experienced zero fall outs with these and that was a pleasant surprise. They also blend extremely well using a regular fluffy blending brush. Pigmentation was not the best (with the exception of the gold centre shade) and you might have to go re-dip your brush in the shadows for more but I find this is what is so beautiful about these palettes. I am not a fan of very pigmented shadows as they take a little more effort to blend (think Urban Decay) so if you are in a rush for time, Guerlain is a great option because of how easily they blend without much work.
