GUERLAIN Ombres Eclat 4 Couleurs 4×1.5g
403 Mysterious Butterfly (LE)
Happy (very belated) 2010! ♥ The last few days of the old year (I always think of them as “dead days” now, after reading the book (ﾉω｀*)んふふ♪) always seem to drag by for me, but the start of the new year moves very fast! (ノ∀≦。)ノぷぷ-ｯ笑 This is my first post for the year, and coincidentally also the 100th post… which seems like a good start, lol (〃^∇^)o彡☆あははははっ
I’m always very lazy during the holiday period, and the short winter daylight hours and bad lighting in the apartment aren’t helping. These are my excuses for not blogging. (´･ω･｀;A) アセアセ The bad lighting is driving me a bit nutty though, so I’m thinking the EOTDs and proper reviews won’t be with the pictures and swatches any more. They’re a bit hard if you can’t really tell what you’re doing in front of the mirror! 彡(-ω-；)彡ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
403 Mysterious Butterfly was the LE palette from the Holiday 2008 collection. ← I know, how slow am I? 彡(´∀｀;●)彡 ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ This was a Christmas present from a dear friend. ♥ It’s taken me a while to make it work though, but I’m getting there… hopefully.

GUERLAIN Ombre Eclat 4 Couleurs Fleur de Feu 6g
This was the LE palette release with the black gold casing (I have to say I like the black gold case much better than the regular gold packaging ヾ(´▽｀*)ゝあーい♪) from Spring 2008. Incidentally, Fleur de Feu was the name of a now-discontinued post-war GUERLAIN fragrance.
I’m always attracted to the colour combinations of GUERLAIN eyeshadow palettes (they look too pretty in the pan! (ｏ￣∀￣)ノ”ぁぃ), but the texture has been somewhat of a letdown. (ﾉω･､) ｳｩ･･･ So while I do love the shades in this palette, I hate using it! o(｀ω´*)oフン!!!

GUERLAIN Kiss Kiss Gloss 6ml／5.8g
This shade, 801 Gold Temptation, was a limited edition release from 2007’s gold-themed Holiday collection. I didn’t own any gold glosses at that time (this is my first and only one) so curiosity, and the limited edition snowflakes on gold packaging, prompted me to purchase this.
(The photos in this post are not completely colour accurate. I’m still struggling with RAW to JPEG conversions. But the gloss looks cooler and more yellow-toned in real life than it does here on my screen.)
