Guerlain Spring 2011 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Singles review

Guerlain has also released 3 new eyeshadow singles (not sure if they're limited edition, but they probably are) this spring which I also got. The shades are L'instant D'une Ombree, L'instant D'une Entreinte and L'instant D'un Soupir. Ombree is a beautiful grey shade, Entreinte is a pearly white and Soupir is a gorgeous brown shade. They all have subtle shimmer to them, but they aren't frosty or glittery at all. They are housed in a gold compact and come with a small applicator.

L'instant D'une Ombree, L'instant D'une Entreinte, L'instant D'un Soupir

They are absolutely lovely, the texture is soft, buttery and very easy to blend. They are very pigmented and the colour in the pan is what you get on your skin. Admittedly, they are quite pricey (it is Guerlain after all!) at £20.50 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 £5.69 compared to Mac at £7.66! Whether you will ever use up 3.6 g of eyeshadow is of course a different question.

See more pictures and swatches after the jump!
