It’s so wonderful to see non pink eyeshadow shades this Spring. Many brands have released bolder shades for Spring 2015, and although Les Precieux is not the boldest among them all, the colors are not too girly for my liking yet not too bold for a daily shades. Between the two palettes Guerlain released for Spring 2015 Les Tendres, I didn’t think for long to pick this one compared to Les Nuées as the deep green caught my immediate attention.
The colors in this palette are:
#1: a deep green with shimmers. The pigmentation of this color is good, the color shows on the first swatch. What I love most about this green is that the color payoff is lovely, and the shimmer is not too much.
#2: a sheer pale pink with frosty finish. This shade is not my favorite in this palette as it doesn’t suit my skintone to use it as a base color nor as a highlighter.
#3: a pale ivory shade with heavy shimmers.
#4: bronzy shade with shimmers. This is a gorgeous bronze that will be wearable on most skin tones.
How do I like this eyeshadow palette?
The shades in this eyeshadow palette has inconsistent quality. I would say so because although the green and the bronze applies smoothly, I find that the pale pink and the ivory shade has some fallouts. In terms of lasting power, I shall say that this are good for about 7 hours with primers. The color stays put and does not crease within 7 hours. As for the color combination in the palette, I must say that this palette leans more towards daily use or elegant look. I am still playing and experimenting on how to create a more fun look with this palette. Nevertheless, I think this palette is worth a try if you’re a sucker for deep greens like me.
Below is a simple look I did with this eyeshadow palette. For this look, I use the bronze as the base color and blend it all over my eyelid. To create a more in depth look, I added the deep green shade on my outer corner and above my eyelid very softly. For my inner corner, I used a pointy eye brush to apply the pale ivory shade. And for the last touch, I applied the sheer pink shade nearer to my eyebrow and use it as a highlighter.
