using the new Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow combination in Les Violines ($63)
It occurred to me while fiendishly gurgling on my third cup of coffee this morning as well as scouring every surface of my office (including the floor) for my missing, valuable pan of MAC Soft brown (I ultimately discovered it) that on any type of provided second of any type of provided day, there are women, as well as makeup-loving men, around the world joining team Matte Eyeshadow.

If you’ve already been drafted, congratulations, as well as welcome. now inspect it — Guerlain’s new Ecrin 4 Couleurs in Les Violines is like the super bowl for violet eyeshadow lovahs.

It’s $63, which, ya know, is business as usual at Guerlain, however if you’re available to the concept of paying that much as well as have a yearning, burning like for matte purples, I believe these are quite great.

Les Violines strums a tune about violet. Its three lightest shades are tonally near as well as dear to every other, making them perfect for blown-out matte purple looks with smooth transitions, like what I’m using on my lids in these pics. I paired Violines with contoured cheeks as well as a somewhat shiny berry lip, for a look that I believe has that meow-rrific ’90s thing going for it.

If you’re believing that the combination may be as well awesome for you, no way, man! — you can so do this. The shades really have reddish undertones, in spite of exactly how cool-toned they look in their pans, as well as if your skin tone leans warm like mine, that red should make these shades easier to wear.

Ah, however what about the blending? you may ask. great question. Yup, it’s frequently one of the biggest difficulties with mattes, as much as I like ’em. They can be bears to blend.

Blast those choppy, harsh lines! [*bites fist*]

Thankfully, these shadows feel softer than a Ragdoll kitten’s downy fur — in other words, super silky (similar to the creamy, wonderful matte powder eyeshadows over at Dolce & Gabbana). It barely takes the lightest swipe of a clean to seamlessly shift one color into the next…and say thanks to goodness for that, since right now I can barely lift my arms!

Quick tangent, however yesterday I did push-ups for the very first time in at least a year; consequently, I’ve been in a fantastic offer of discomfort all the time today. I’ve been walking around with my arms rigid as well as hanging directly down at my sides like Robot Karen. “PIEP! Muss. Anwenden. Bilden. PIEP!”

Oh, have I ever mentioned that my eyes (weirdly, the left eye more than the right) seem to be sensitive to a great deal of purple as well as violet eyeshadows, where they’ll begin tearing up, sometimes for hours, particularly when the shadows have gritty powder grains?

It’s the weirdest thing, however it hasn’t occurred at all with Violines. It’s been smooth sailing so far.
