Guerlain Fall 2012 introduces the Les Fauves eyeshadow palette ($59/ Ecris 4 Couleurs Les Fauves #14). This is a warm, pearly autumnal palette that gives a perfect Fall eye. The colors include a warm shimmery coral, a pearly mocha, a semi-shimmery warm brown, and a deep shimmery pearly deep brown. The overall impression is quite warm.

The tones should work beautifully with blue or green eyes, although those with deeper eye colors might still enjoy the pearly contour effects that the palette allows. Swatches:

I found that the ease and texture of Guerlain Les Fauves made this one a must-have. This has the soft, buttery texture that I adore. I found that using the Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush made this extraordinarily easy to use. Below, Liz used the shimmery mocha color from the palette’s right side all over her lid. She used the bottom coral in her inner corner, and the top brown in the crease. The deep color on the left side is a good liner, although it can be used for a crease color as well. There is no highlighter in the palette, although most of us have multiple choices in our stash.

Another with the same lighting, the evening sun skating across the lids: 

Here is a full face, with Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait Lip Color  in Paresse (review to follow). When the light is not shining directly on lids, the effect gives a subtle contour. In shade, no flash:

Guerlain’s pearly neutral palette was a must-have for each of us. A great palette for Fall (and the end of Summer).

  1. This looks so gorgeous on Liz! I’ve been wanting this one for a while. I have dark brown eyes but I don’t care–want it anyway :P

  2. That’s one pretty palette. I adore shade on the palette’s right side. It makes light play perfectly on your lids.

    Have a happy day! :)

  3. Even though you said you were on vacation…I still kept checking every day…finally a new post! One of my favorite beauty blogs. I felt sad without new posts. :) Long time lurker, first time poster. Can’t wait for fall collection posts!

  4. I bought this eye palette, and love it. I also purchased one of the collection’s lipsticks, Lust. Love that, too. As for a blush, I use a Guerlain blush I already own, the Rouge G, with the hidden brush in the compact. Works perfectly.

  7. I got the same palette. Love all the colors on this palette. I didn’t plan to buy this palette at the beginning, but after the make-over session at Guerlain and the compliments I had from people passed by, I’m sold. I found that the brown is not any ordinary brown, it’s has some pearly burgundy/ purple inside it. My mom tried on it on her eyes (she has light brown eyes) and the color is purple pearl on her. Absolutely stunning. I didn’t expect the color to be complex at the first look at the pan.
