Guerlain Golden Stars Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches


Golden Stars (777)

Guerlain Golden Stars (777) Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday quad that included three more metallic shades and one more pearl-like shade (and when really buffed out, it could be satin-like). Three of the four shades were very lovely to work with, while one shade (the fourth) was sheerer and better with a dampened brush.

Ingredients

Golden Stars #1

Golden Stars #1 is a rich, medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen.

  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Moderately-dense, slightly firmer feel but yielding
  • Picked up well with dry brush and “melted” while being blended out
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours before fading)

  • ColourPop Sequin (P, $6.00).
  • Urban Decay Powder Trip (LE, $20.00).
  • NYX Rose Dust (P, $6.00).

Formula Overview

The formula is supposed to have “intense pigments for long-lasting color” across four finishes: “intense satin,” “deep matte,” luminous metallic,” and “radiant pearl.” The majority of the shades were quite pigmented applied dry, but it seemed, by texture and look of the pan, to be a wet/dry formula to me, so I tried them damp as well. I didn’t feel like using them dampened was necessary except for a few of the “radiant pearl” finish shades, which had more shimmer/sparkle.

The “deep matte” finish tended to have a firmer and more cream-like feel, so using a denser brush to pick up to apply and diffuse color was best, while the other finishes were more moderately-dense–firm but not stiff–and blended out well as they “melted” on my skin. The eyeshadows lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of fading with a few getting closer to nine hours of wear.
