Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($93.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned, blue-leaning shades that range from a silver to blue to navy blue. I’m not keen on the formula Guerlain’s been using in their recent eyeshadow palettes, as it is drier with a dusty feel that makes them prone to fading, sheering out, and generally not apply well. I wish there was more hold to these, and the eyeshadows would bind better so they would be easier to use. At this price point, it leaves me completely disappointed.
