Guerlain Petrouchka Eye & Blush Palette

Guerlain Petrouchka Eye & Blush Palette ($90.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes five eyeshadows and four blushes. When you open the palette, you’ll see a tray of eyeshadows, and when you lift the tray, you’ll see four blushes–two as larger squares, two as smaller, rectangles. The colors chosen for the palette all work together very well, including the blushes. It is an incredibly warm-toned palette, and all of the eyeshadows have more frosted finishes (I would have loved to see two of them be more satiny with a lower sheen). The eyeshadows are extremely dupable, and two of the blushes are sheerer, slightly powdery/dry. Guerlain’s blush formula is interesting, because it’s not a formula that seems to swatch well, yet it looks far better applied to cheeks. They’re more buildable, and they don’t look dry applied nor are they difficult to blend out. I wish they had only done two blushes (or maybe even just one illuminating powder), because I had to use eyeshadow brushes to get the color out of the pan due to each pan being so small. The compact is a slightly mattified gold, and the red bow is an elastic that slides off (Guerlain had an image on its booklet that showed it being used as a hair tie).
