Guerlain Amber Silver (05) & Black Jack (01) Eye Pencils

Guerlain Amber Silver (05) Eye Pencil ($30.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “silver.” It’s more like a silver-shimmered, brownish taupe color with a frosted, metallic finish. It was creamy and had semi-opaque color payoff in a single pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color but not fully opaque. It’s the type of color that looks great on the lower lash line to brighten and open up eyes with something more defining than beige. It lasted well for seven hours, and after eight, it looked slightly thinner but did not gather into the corners or smudge. Urban Decay Stray Dog is much darker, as is Urban Decay Mushroom. MAC Catch My Eye is more silver. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) & Secret (85) Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense blue-pink.” It’s a medium, subtle blue-based pink with a luminous sheen. This shade is part of the Colour range, so it is designed to be more pigmented–and it is at nearly opaque coverage–than the original range of Rouge Coco Shines. It wears for four hours, which average, and is lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Fiend is warmer. MAC Please Me is lighter. Chanel Belgravia is darker, cooler-toned. Le Metier de Beaute Fuji is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Dior Aventure (081) & Cosmos (281) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadows

Dior Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadows ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) were recently released, and they come in a total of eight shades. The new Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have a mousse-gel texture “that easily glides onto lids and sets with a mirror-shine effect.” It is supposed to have “vivid, multidiemsnional color and luminous finish.” The formula also provides for a “three-in-one makeup look,” which means it can be applied softly when used with a finger, more intensely when applied with a brush, and then used with a liner brush as an eyeliner (so says the press release). I bought four initially and have been working with them over the past week, and on Friday, I received the remaining four, so I hope to have reviews for all of them available soon.
