Mystic Peacock (360)

Guerlain Mystic Peacock (360) Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a newly-released color story featuring a new eyeshadow formula. Three of the four shades were more pigmented, while all four were fairly blendable, easy to apply, and longer-wearing. One shade was noticeably sheerer applied dry, though.

Ingredients

Mystic Peacock #1

Mystic Peacock #1 is a vivid, deeper navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a smooth, pearly sheen.

  • Opaque coverage applied dry
  • Moderately-dense, firmer but not stiff, no powderiness
  • Blendable, “melted” on skin for a smoother finish
  • Long-wearing (8 hours of wear on average)

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.
