We’re continuing our series of swatch posts with a little more eye luxury, this time in the form of the Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs. This collection of pigment rich quads showcases a series of texture and colour that is tailored to personal preference. If you’re a fan of purple, Les Violets is for you. If you prefer a more shimmery finish, then opt for Les Perles. The packaging is as luxe as you’d expect, too – weighty, golden and very Guerlain, it’s the ultimate eyeshadow compact.
Each of these swatches were made on the inside of the arm using a Daniel Sandler Eyeshadow 2 brush. The shadows can be further layered for a more intense, and dampened slightly to create a pigment-rich stroke of eyeliner.
