Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eye Palette In 04 Les Bois De Rose

I picked up this quad at Sephora. For $64 its pricey but I am head over heels in love with every single product of theirs I have ever tried so I didn't think much of the price tag. And I must say I love the colours and they were not the same boring browns that I always wear (ok, at least two of them aren't  lol!).

Like my Chanel and Dior shadows, these come in a velvet pouch. The case is a metallic case that will show every single fingerprint and speck on it. Not sure I am a fan of the metallic gold case, but it does look/feel luxurious.

Now I tried to swatch these, but they just did NOT want to cooperate. As you can see, the matte brown is almost invisible, and the pink the two centre ones are patchy. The darkest brown one is the best of them all, but still not very good. This was at least 3 or 4 swipes of each to get the swatches you see below. All in all, it was a complete and total fail. I have never been so disappointed in a Guerlain product before, and I would not have believed I could be had you told me that. I ended up returning this to Sephora. It is sadly a gorgeous palette but only when looking at it. NOT when using it.
