Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Shade Eyeshadow Les Perles

Unlike the other Guerlain 4 pan palettes which contain a mixture of finishes, the shades of Les Perles (£37) are all of a similar gentle shimmer finish.
The palette contains a light baby pink, white, silver and a smoky grape.
I had a bit of hesitation when I initially saw this at the counter as I thought it would go on overly frosty and the three lighter colours would just be too light so that they looked stark.
I have been proved wrong, instead of a frost I would say the look is shimmery and luminous and the silver and grape have enough colour to give definition.

I think this is a beautiful palette and Guerlain are really up there for me in terms of eye shadows; smooth, good pigment and they just blend so well I really don't have to work with them at all to get the look I want.

I bought this from Debenhams


  1. i think this is a really nice palette and can be so useful!!!

    PS:nice blog by the way-new follower here!!!


  2. Hi Maria,
    Thanks :) It is a lovely palette, I was surprised how much I like it as I did worry it would be frost city :)

  3. Those look so very gorgeous on you! Impeccable and envy-worthy blending as always :).
    I just bought Les Cuirs (browns) from the collection and am really liking it. The texture and luminosity of these powders are quite fabulous.

  5. Hi Vintage Makeup,
    Its so easy to get enticed by Guerlain :)

    Hi Nina,
    Thank you, you do say the nicest things ;) I still feel tempted by Les Curis but I think there was one shade that looked really warm. Like you say these are quite fabulous, Guerlain seem a much more popular brand than they were say 5 years ago x

    Hi Jane,
    I was trying to think if you had picked one of these palettes up yet as I think they have quite a few that would work well with your colourings x

  6. This looks lovely on you! I really like these Guerlain palettes and this is one of the first that caught my eye :)

  7. Hi Makeup Magpie,
    Thank you :) I bought the roses one at the same time so I'll get a review up on that one soon, I've got a bit of a thing for these palettes :)
