Guerlain Dazzling Radiance Collection single eyeshadows plus FOTD

Okay, well I probably won't ever catch up, but I have at least finally got around to writing up a post about the new Guerlain single eyeshadows and even did a look with them. Yay! If you've been reading my blog for a while you might remember this post where I told you about the new Guerlain Dazzling Radiance Collection and the single eyeshadows that came out with it. Here they are:
From top to bottom: L’Instant d’Un Baiser, L’Instant d’Une Emotion, L’Instant d’Un Reve, L’Instant d’Une Caresse
And here are the swatches:
L’Instant d’Un Baiser, L’Instant d’Une Caresse, L’Instant d’Un Reve, L’Instant d’Une Emotion
They are absolutely lovely, the texture is soft, buttery and very easy to blend. Although the colours aren't exactly summery, they work very well together, both d'Un Braiser and d'Une Caresse make lovely highlighters, and the 4 of them create a very nice smoky eye together. Admittedly, they are quite pricey (it is Guerlain after all!) at £19 each, but you do get a lot of product for your money as they are 3.6 gramms, compared to a Mac eyeshadow (1.5 g). In fact, gramm per gramm Guerlain is cheaper at £5.28 compared to Mac at £7.33! Whether you will ever use up 3.6 g of eyeshadow is of course a different question. Here's the look I created with them. I used Baiser in the inner corner, Reve on the middle and outer part of the lid, Emotion in the crease and Caresse on the browbone to highlight. I also used the newly formulated and packaged Meteorites in Teint Beige, Kiss Kiss Baby Lip Balm in Cherry Summer, Blush 4 Eclats in Lueur D'Automne and Le 2 Mascara in black. See some photos:
