And so we reach the Black Swan section of Guerlain Christmas 2014, with the release of the L’Ecrin 2 Couleurs eyeshadow palette in Cygne Noir, and very pretty it is too. I rarely expect much from the eyeshadow duos from Guerlain (I’ve never bought one, for example), but this one did make me do a little “ooooh” of joy when I opened it:
Black and purple. Shimmering black and purple. Actually, it is a slightly glittering black, flecked with gold sparkle, and a softly shimmering deep purple. This set is perfect for releasing your inner goth.
I was delighted, and surprised at the level of pigmentation in the palette – for some reason, I’d been expecting the shadows to be hard and patchy in application, I have no idea where I got this idea from, but I was more than happy to be proved wrong!
I’ll be taking a closer look at Guerlain’s two colour palettes from now on ..,
The Fine Print: Products featured this week have been a mixture of PR samples and private purchases. My bank manager is spending Christmas in the Bahamas. That’s not really a surprise.
