Guerlain Exotic Paradise Single Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Among Guerlain’s Spring Exotic Paradise Collection, they also re-released their single eyeshadows–ten of them. They boast that these are the largest eyeshadows you can find, weighing in at 3.6 grams and priced at $34 each.

Guerlain Exotic Paradise Quad & L’heure de Nuit Duo Liner

Guerlain Exotic Paradise Collection is my favorite spring launch so far.  (I admit, NARS’ Heart of Desire Collection looks very promising!)  I’ve seen a fair amount of the spring collections released, and I really fell in love with Guerlain’s presentation, mix of colors, and especially the Exotic Paradise quad ($58.00). Guerlain has some of the best packaging of the higher end brands, because each product is housed in a metal compact/casing. It just feels more luxe than plastic, you know?
