Guerlain Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow Pallette



Guerlain Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow Palette in Velours D'or (410)

I received this eyeshadow palette as a gift not too long ago. I didn't know how much it cost then, I looked it it up and it's over $50! The palette came with a soft black pouch to protect it, it had a cute bumblebee looking thing on the front. However, I got it filthy with makeup and had to throw it out. *tears* When I first got the product the eyeshadows were imprinted with cute designs. The gold had the bumblebee and the rest had pretty loops. I can't tell you how much I love these eyeshadows. They are perfect colors for me, I adore the purple (and gold!). I also like that the palette comes with two applicators: a shadow and an eyeliner. The quality of them is great. They are foam-like, they feel like a Tempur Pedic bed! Unlike cheap ones in store brand palettes, the cotton part doesn't falls off after one use. These are durable. The eyeshadow goes on great and has good pigments. The darker shades don't go on sheer, like cheaper versions might. You get what you see. One would expect this from such a classy makeup name. After all, Guerlain has had 175 years of practice (since 1828!). *wow* For the price however, I don't see myself dropping the $50+ for it...unless I won the lottery.

Went to the birthday party I talked about yesterday and just got back a little bit ago. And boy, I have to say I am not ready for children yet! It was absolute chaos there. Kids screaming, dogs barking, cartoons blasting. I like my peace, for now. I had actually planned on an outfit post today, but I wasn't feeling the pictures of myself so I decided to go with the eyeshadow. My sewing machine should be here soon, I can't wait. Also, I am finally off the wait list for Birchbox. I am now signed up and will be getting next month's box. I cancelled my Julep Maven subscription. I like there products, but I just don't feel they are worth the $20 a month.
Xo,

    1. Exactly! I could never justify purchasing this. No matter how good of a product it is. But someone could give it to me as a gift again! Lol :)

    1. Me too! They're perfect. I wish they weren't so expensive. I guess I need to find good replacements for when these are gone. But these will last a while for me. :)
