Guerlain D’une Ondee (186) Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a mega-sized medium-dark, silvery gray with a frosted finish. When applied wet, it has more of a frosted sheen, but the color is very much the same whether used wet or dry. Guerlain’s eyeshadow texture is phenomenal in their singles–smooth, silky, very buttery. The color is true-to-pan and delivers rich results with little product needed.
I bought this the other day when I saw Nordstrom put up three new Guerlain eyeshadows, and the online photo makes it look rather… pewter-esque, and you know me and my pewters. Unfortunately, in real life, it’s just a silver-gray. It’s a nice shade, but it is rather easy to replicate. It does have slight multi-colored micro-shimmer, but I did not see much of an effect when used. Guerlain’s eyeshadows are massive–over double the average single eyeshadow–and so by the ounce, Guerlain is as expensive ($300/oz.) (or as affordable) as MAC eyeshadows ($290/oz.).

FINAL THOUGHTS: Even though it’s a shade you may already own, it is still lovely. I don’t take away points because a product may be duped by another brand or shade, as that element does not take away from the product’s quality. I have always really liked their single shadows for their silky smooth texture.
