Guerlain Ombre 4 Eclats #408 Jeu d’Ombrelles was a part of Guerlain’s Spring 2010 collection.
The compact is housed in a black velvet pouch and contains mirror and two sponge tip applicators. Each pan of the eyeshadow contains 1,5 grams so in total you get 6 grams of eyeshadow.
Guerlain eyeshadows are absolutely the best eyeshadows I ever had (in the terms of staying power). I have extremely oily lids, and without primer every eyeshadow creases in max. an hour. Guerlain eyeshadows stay well over three hours (without a primer). With the primer, the eyeshadows stay on for as long as I want it, without fading or creasing.
Jeu d’Ombrelles palette contains the following shades:
- shimmery white
- matte dark purple
- matte violet
- shimmery light pink.
Each pan has a red overspray design which disappears with a sweep of a brush.
This palette is my choice when I want to wear a purple look. The colours in this palette compliment each other; this really is a palette from which you’ll use absolutely every colour.
The matte purple and violet shade have excellent pigmentation, they are very silky and easy to blend. The shimmery white and pink shade are not as pigmented, but they are still pretty good, compared to other Guerlain shimmery eyeshadows.
