Guerlain Mono Eyeshadow & Cils d’Enfer Maxi Lash So Volume Mascara 2015


Well, well Guerlain has released yet another spring 2015 collection after Les Tendres. This time around collection has lots to offer with:

· 12 Ecrin 1 Couleur Mono Eyeshadows – housed in solid gold casing. Available in matte, satin & metallic finishes
· Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipsticks (limited editions)
· Guerlain Cils d’Enfer So Volume Mascara  


I was sent Ecrin 1 Couleur Mono Eye shadow in Blue’s Brothers, Kiss Kiss lipstick in So Plum and the Maxi Lash mascara by the lovely Guerlain team. Here’s the first impression of the products along with swatches.

Ecrin 1 Couleur Mono Eyeshadow in Blue’s Brothers (AED 169) is a midnight blue with matte finish. Looks absolutely gorgeous on the set of black and gold interior! However, the texture is slightly different compared to my old Guerlain eye shadows. Blue’s Brothers isn’t buttery smooth as I’ve had preferred but soft and finely milled. 

 
On the eyes: I had trouble getting the pigment with same intensity as the pan. On to the third application I started to see the color and it looked dark grey after blending. Obviously far-off from the blue I loved. It did stay put all day long without settling into creases but after all, it didn’t perform well on the lids as I’d hoped. 
Satin & metallic shades utter complete different story! They are ah-mazing and I fancy these more. When swatched, they went on buttery smooth and was super pigmented.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick in So Plum is a very sophisticated deep plum. I believe this is a must have for winter rather spring. The color payoff is impressive. It glides on creamy, very comfortable to wear and lips felt hydrated. You can easily attain full coverage in a single stroke.

Guerlain Cils d’Enfer Maxi Lash So Volume Mascara in 01 Noir is everything you need for achieving thick long lashes. It gives you curl, length, separation AND loads of volume without clumps and flakes. In case you are looking for more intensity, it is easily buildable. The best part is, it comes in a sturdy, black & dull gold tube which is the loveliest packaging ever for a mascara. 
Here are the swatches. 

Overall, I liked everything except matte mono shadow – which was a huge disappointment! I can’t say the same about satin & metallic shades. They are stunning and performs way better. Suggest you swatch these before purchasing and don’t forget to grab the star product ~ So Volume Mascara.

All products are now available at Guerlain outlets in Dubai.
