Guerlain 29 Rue de Sevres swatches and Caresse de L'aube Blush

Just a quick post to share the swatches of the Guerlain 29 Rue de Sevres palette. The colors are a bone beige, a light taupe, a blue low shimmer grey, a shimmery seafoam green, a shimmery silver beige and a dark brown grey liner. The daylight pics are indoors near a window, but it was a bit of an overcast day. Coloring wise, I am about a NC35-40 (maybe higher) right now.

Swatches in daylight, they really do not appear as flat as they are in this lighting,
but the shimmer is subtle except for the lighter colors.

Guerlain 29 Rue de Sevres-Fall 2010

I was hanging out with Mona (MakeMeBlushhh) and we stopped by Saks Fifth Avenue to feed her shoe fetish. Upon entering the store, I tackled her when I saw that the Fall 2010 make up collection was out at the Guerlain counter. We were talking about this collection earlier in the day and how drool worthy the packaging was for the eyeshadow palettes. I was the weak one and left with one of the eyeshadow palettes, blush, one lipstick and one gloss.

The eyeshadow sextets are all named for Guerlain store locations in Paris. I picked the 29 Rue de Sevres palette because it was the one that I felt had the most contrast between all the colors.

Leaflet -Perhaps many shadows are similar in the palettes
so they can create this "tone on tone" look.

I did not get a chance to do swatches yet so that will be in the next post along with the other items I picked up.
