Guerlain’s fall collection should be on counters any day now — I’m hoping it’ll show up this week. I’m most excited about the launch of nine new eyeshadow quads (little sisters to the six-pan palettes that launched in fall of last year).
The new eyeshadow quads will be a permanent addition to the line, which means that Guerlain’s existing eyeshadow quads will be discontinued (most likely, counters will just sell through the stock they have until it’s gone).
So I thought I’d better swatch the to-be-discontinued quads while I had the chance. If you’ve been meaning to pick one of these up “someday,” don’t wait too much longer. They are $59 each.
441 Brun Mordore originally launched in July of 2009. Its colors are sheer, shimmery, warm, pale beige-gold; shimmery mauve-sand; satin warm wood brown; and satin dark cool brown with gold sparkles.
481 Bronze Dore includes a shimmery gold-copper, a satin ecru (creamy off-white), a satin apple-green, and a frosty gold-olive-green.
480 Perle d’Argent features a shimmery ice-blue-white, a satin blue-purple-grey, a shimmery grey-silver, and a shimmery charcoal navy-black.
490 Turquoise Cendre includes a shimmery white, a low-shimmer muted periwinkle, a satin ice-blue, and a sheer, low shimmer teal-turquoise.
461 Violette du Soir includes a satin lilac, a satin orchid-purple-pink, a sheer pale purple-grey, and a rich, shimmery black-violet.
460 Rose Boise offers a shimmery peony pink, a satin bubblegum pink, a satin rose-beige-sand, and a shimmery red-brown.
See anything you love? Or are you saving yourself for the new quads?
