When my order of a few of the new Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs palettes arrived, Les Gris ($59 / #5) was the first that I happened to open. I literally gasped–this is visually stunning palette.
On the far left is a matte gray. The top center is a shimmery shell beige highlight. The bottom center is a deep, sparkling shimmery navy. The far right is a medium gray metal shimmer.
Les Gris didn’t seem to have a strong corollary in the Ecrin 6 Couleurs. Instead, this one is a deep, cool and nicely-textured edgy combination. Liz used the lightest shade as the base color for her lid, then layered the blue (bottom center) over the top of the base. She then used the right shimmery grey in the inner corner. She touched the dark grey (on the left) in her crease lightly. She’s using Benefit They’re Real Mascara (reviewed here), in natural light (no flash) in this picture:
Another picture, with flash. You can see how the pearly texture of the shimmery shades reacts to the light:

Liz and I found Les Gris extremely easy to use. The texture is beautiful and blends well. Lovely colors–interesting but not over the top. Highly recommended.
