every once in awhile a product strikes me that is so gorgeous, so unbelievably charming that i want to buy it and then hide it away untouched. guerlain has taken my breath away with this gold and champagne laced eyeshadow palette inspired by the dresses worn by russian princesses. it’s rich and enchanting, super luxurious, and stunningly pigmented. muted orange, brick red, old rose, and aubergine create an intense combination designed to bring out the clarity of all eye colors. guerlain’s shadows are velvety smooth and perfectly applied with the sculpted brushes included in the black lacquer compact. at $58, this quad is an investment, but perhaps one that’s worth the splurge!
