Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Tailored Harmonies 
#93 Rue de Passy



Hi Divas!


This week I will be reviewing one the most luxurious eyeshadow palettes I have ever owned. When I think of the brand Guerlain there are two words that come to my mind: Pure Luxury. That is exactly how I would describe the Ecrin 6 Couleurs Tailored Harmonies palette. At a first glance, the palette doesn't look anything like makeup packaging. The case resembles an elegant jewelry box for a diamond necklace or bracelet fit for a queen. This is the heaviest palette I have ever come across as the casing is made out of metal. The eyeshadow palette comes in a sleek black box with a black velvet pouch. Inside is a beautiful metallic case with an ornate cut out pattern design and an engraved bee on it. It looks so elegant and regal, hence the doubt of could this really be an eyeshadow palette? Once your heart has stopped skipping a few beats and you can come to terms with the opulent packaging, when you open the case you find 6 eyeshadows, a mini brush and a flap open mirror too. The palette comes with an instructional pamphlet, explaining the different eyeshadows and diagrams of how you can create three different looks using this palette.There are 6 eyeshadow palettes in this collection to choose from and I have the shade #93 Rue De Passy (super fancy title). I feel like a medieval queen when I use this eyeshadow palette. The packaging is totally on fleek! This gets a 100% rating in the makeup packaging awards department.


This palette deserves 10 gold stars for packaging!!!

This particular palette comes in brown, taupe, and grey purple shades. There is a black eyeshadow as well to create the perfect smokey eye. Three of the shades are matte, which is the black shade on the far right, the light brown shade on the top left and the taupe shade which is a perfect crease colour on your far left. At the bottom right is a satin brown shade. On the top right is a greyish purple shade that is gorgeous for a sultry eye. In the middle is a frosty pink shimmer shade that can be used as a brow highlighter or to dust over the lid area. All of the shades are very pigmented and blend easily. In this particular palette the colours are pretty neutral and safe. You can create an everyday look for the office or you can go dark and sultry for a night time look. The eyeshadows are very elegant and the colours are timeless. Any age group from a teenager to a more matured lady would enjoy this palette and create a look that is unique and classic. I love to use this palette on my mom's eyes too. I feel the shades look amazing on her and make her look glammed up without overdoing it on the shimmer as other palettes tend to do.


Romantic Smokey Eye look


As you can see in the photo above, I opted for a subtle and romantic smokey eye look. I think this look would be perfect for a date night. Not that I go on any of those, anyway! I absolutely adore this palette and love wearing it in the Autumn and Winter months. To be honest with you, at first I was afraid to use it as it was so luxurious and I didn't want to mess it up. I soon got over that fear and started playing around with the pretty shades. I suppose you can get these particular shades in other palettes as they are nothing new or unique to speak of. The wow factor about this palette is definitely the packaging. If you are looking to splurge a whole lot more and want to add something beautiful to your growing makeup collection, then I urge you to visit a Guerlain counter close to you.





Hope you enjoyed this review. 
Sending lots of love your way.
Divalicious kisses.

It is gorgeous Desle! Guerlain's packaging is always so exquisite. Always feels rich. I own a lipstick, but I want to try some of their other products. Love the neutral colors in this one.

The packaging is just so beautiful! The colours are very pretty too! I haven't tried their eyeshadows, only the mascaras and the lip products!
