Guerlain Rue de Rivoli eyeshadow palette review

I've got a lot of things to review from Guerlain's Spring 2011 collection and also Dior and Chanel as well as Mac Mega Metals eyeshadows so I will keep this as short as possible. I will show you some beautiful pictures and swatches, and of course you are more than welcome to ask questions in the comments below!

So this is Guerlain's Rue de Rivoli eyeshadow palette, containing 6 harmonising shades that you can use to create a huge variety of looks with. There's a pale highlighting shade as well as a dark shade you can use as a liner or to create depth in the crease, and 4 medium shades to mix and match. Only one of them is matte, the others come with some degree of sheen/shimmer. Some of the shades are on the sheer side, but can be layered. I have not used it yet, but am looking forward to creating looks with it.

The eyeshadows are housed in a beautiful silver compact with intricate design and the trademark bee. On the inside you have a mirror that you fold out to the right and the eyeshadow palette also comes with a small double ended brush (rather than sponge applicator). The palette costs £52.50 and you get 7.3 g of eyeshadows.
