Hey everyone, today I have the sneak peek and quick swatches of Guerlain Spring 2013, Cils D’Enfer for you! You will soon see two beautiful quads and two juicy lipsticks reviewed in detail here, but for the moment how about some swatches and quick observations?
Guerlain Coup de Foudre Ecrin 4 Couleurs (502. RRP in Belgium: 55,10 euros) is my personal must-have from the collection. There is a metallic olive green with antique-gold sheen, an almost-matte coral with some golden sparkle, a shimmery grass green with a golden sheen, and a gunmetal gray with a blackened-green sheen.
Out of the four, the coral is slightly powdery but has great color-payoff. The gunmetal gray is the only sheerer shade with a drier texture. However, it can be built up relatively easily. The other two shades are creamy and pigmented.
Guerlain Attrape-Coeur Ecrin 4 Couleurs (501. RRP in Belgium: 55, 10 euros) has an interesting mix of purple shades. There is an icy mauve with an iridescent glow, a metallic white, a red-toned purple, and a pinky lavender.
Out of the four shades, the white is the one with the best quality. It has a smooth texture and the color payoff is excellent. The red-toned purple is slightly powdery, but the pigmentation level is still good. The icy mauve swatches rather sheer, though it is buildable. The pinky lavender has decent performance.
Now let’s move onto the lipsticks! On the left you see Ballade Rouge Automatique (600. RRP in Belgium: 34,96 euros), and on the right, Flirt Shine Automatique (761. RRP in Belgium: 34,96 euros).
Ballade is a coral peach, and Flirt is a deep fuchsia berry with shimmer.
Here is how they swatch:
