Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Place Vendome Review & Swatches

As soon as I saw this palette instore I had to have it; Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Place Vendome (no. 2) – I love neutral eyes with a shock of bright colour!

Then there was a problem. The price. This palette retails at £51! It’s a steep price – considering the fact that I find Chanel and Dior eyeshadow palettes at £38 or so expensive £51 is just…a lot to ask. Especially when it’s sold in Debenhams. My local Debenhams is on the dingy side…

I purchased this from Debehams online, when there was a 10% off so I got it for £43.45 rather than £51.

Here is the case – so beautiful. It’s heavy and has a gorgeous engraved pattern on the outside:

If you open it up, there’s there’s a protective cover. Posh stuff! I thought there was a cover because there’s a gel liner inside but that’s not the case. It’s actually for the mirror:

Inside the palette is a mirror – a pretty good size one too. You get a double ended brush, it’s a decent one but not really enough for full eye application.

With Place Vendrome, you get 3 mattes, cream, beige and a slate, then metallic cool gold, dark blue and a bright metallic blue.

The colours are lovely, I love these cool tones browns and taupes and nudes. Throwing in the gold and the blues gives it a bit of a kick too – gorge! The texture of these shadows are lovely too, really creamy and soft, pigmented and blendable:

I like palettes with lots of colours and choices that I can carry around with me – this one isn’t that easy to carry round because it’s heavy and quite big. It’s also too pretty to carry around incase I drop it!

Swatches:

Verdict:

Gorgeous palette, reflected in the price. I am in no massive rush to buy more because they’re so expensive – maybe the brown palette on day as a treat!

  1. That’s an absolutely gorgeous palette! I love the way it’s laid out. However, definitely out of my price range. How does the eyeliner wear?

  2. Lovely palette great for winter
    Loved the blue shades, would be great for doin smokey blue look
    Great post

  3. I live in hope that these will be in the sale one day. I have Rue de Passy and the eyeshadow quality a little mixed in that palette. I do love it though and it’s really easy to whip up a nice eye look when I can’t be bothered to think too hard. I would love to get this one or Rue de Sevres.

      They are really gorgeous, but the price really takes the shine off. I’m glad I had one with a bit of a discount but won’t be rushing to get more, also Guerlain seems to go on sale at 50% or more come the new years sales, hmmm x

  4. do you have full ingredients of this eye shadow?
