Look Like You Spent Way More Time on Your Eyes with Guerlain Bronze Ora Iridescent Eyeshadow!

Guerlain Bronze Ora FOTD To be honest, I can’t quite figure out why Guerlain Bronze Ora Iridescent Eyeshadow isn’t all over the blogosphere already. I mean, have you seen how stunning and complex this shade is? The dimension Bronze Ora creates single-handedly will definitely make people think you’re at least wearing a trio!

Guerlain Bronze Ora Guerlain Bronze Ora Iridescent Eyeshadow (Fard Métal) comes in a plastic tube. It contains 0.7 grams (0.02 oz) of product and goes for 30,81 euros here. Guerlain Bronze Ora packaging The packaging of Guerlain Bronze Ora Iriduescent Eyeshadow is something I haven’t seen before. As you twist the cap open, it bounces up. It doesn’t literally separate from the tube, and I only occasionally notice a tiny trace of powder flying out. Guerlain Bronze Ora applicator Once you pull the cap off, you see the sponge applicator. Applying with the applicator is easy, but I would suggest blending with an eyeshadow brush. You might get a tiny bit of fallout during application, but it can be wiped away really easily (the eyeshadow doesn’t have a sticky texture or micro-glitter that will stick to the skin). Bronze Ora is extremely pigmented and silky soft. It requires next to no blending. Because of the complexity of the shade, it plays a lot with the light to create incredible dimension on its own! Left: one pass straight from the applicator. Right: blended out Guerlain Bronze Ora swatch It would be too simplifying to say Guerlain Bronze Ora is a bronze. It is so much more than that! Sometimes I think I see a bit of taupe, and it is incredibly sparkling. Not too sparkling for me to wear on a daily basis though, which is a bonus! Without a primer, Bronze Ora lasts on my lids for 5 hours. With a primer, it can safely hold up for 10. For the look, I used Bronze Ora on its own all over my lids with a bit of Bobbi Brown Wheat blended into my crease area. As you can see, it definitely looks like I’m wearing more than one shade! It reminds me of how the combination of Burberry Pale Barley and Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss looks on me, or maybe how they layer over Laura Mercier Sand Glow. Guerlain Terra Ora collection FOTD Guerlain Bronze Ora EOTD I also have Terra Ora Sculpting Powder Contrast Highlighter Face and Décolleté and Corail Ora Shine Automatique on. They will both be reviewed soon! Bottom line: I have nothing but love for Guerlain Bronze Ora Iridescent Eyeshadow! The shade is complex so it functions well on its own, and it is sparkling but not over the top. I am pretty sure I’ll wear it often! I know the packaging is a sore point with some, but I personally don’t have any problems with it. It would be great if Guerlain had thrown a little more into the tube, but quality-wise there is nothing I can be picky about! Have you seen Guerlain Bronze Ora around? Is it a shade that speaks to you? The bronzer is of course a dream piece, but if you could only get one piece from this collection, I would root for Bronze Ora!

    This is unrelated to your beautiful makeup but I really want to know where you got your ring. :)

  • Lily

    *loves* I absolutely adore shades like this. Looks great on you too, Sunny :-)

  • beauties

    I would go for the bronzer!

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    I never really wear just one shade of eyeshadow, but I’d love to give it a try and see if it gives my eyes enough depth!

  • http://mybeautysample.com/ Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Gorgeous but I think I have a similar shade in RBR pigments so the stunning coppery one caught my eye more–so beautiful!! :D

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Becca, I think I know which one you’re talking about! The coppery shade is most probably too warm for me, but I’d love to see it on you!

  • Icaria

    This is the type of shade I love. I’ll surely have a closer look. Would you say it’s more shimmery than satiny? Coz satiny I could go for. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, I would say Bronze Ora sparkles a bit more than satiny, but it really isn’t over-the-top in my book. Do take a closer look and let me know if you like it!

  • petra

    What a beautiful color, looks perfect on you, and I love the way your eyeliner looks too perfect, I would love to learn to do that on myself, I just can’t do it or I try but it never looks pretty :p

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Petra! It took a lot of practice for me to develop some eyeliner skills because I am quite clumsy. It just adds so much to my eye shape though, that I had to learn!

  • ValleyDoll

    I immediately thought of taupe ! I looks so good on you.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Eva, it is taupe from certain angles but bronze from others. It’s truly complex and stunning!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    I see a bit of olive too, at least once applied!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, that might be my skin tone. As long as there’s a bit of olive in the shade, my skin tone just latches onto it! You should swatch it to see how it looks on you! In any case it’s a pretty shade!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Sure is pretty on you! Will need to check it out!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Tracy! You should definitely check it out. I think the other one will work well for you as well!

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    The formula definitely sounds like one to try. Love the shade on you!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Taylor! I think you’ll like this too!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I bought both Bronze and the copper version, I couldn’t resist. I just love how they shine. I haven’t had the time to try them on though. Bronze looks great on you.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Good for you, Jacqueline! I’d love to see both on you!

  • http://makeupmorsels.wordpress.com Makeup Morsels

    LOL you had me at “look like you spent way more time.” That’s basically my entire life philosophy in a nutshell. I absolutely love this shade, it has the depth I look for in all my lid wash colors. Merghh must stop by Guerlain counter and swatch all the pretties now!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey MM, same here! As much as I love playing with makeup, I don’t always have the time! You should really check it out. The other shade is pretty too, but it’s a very warm shade that I can’t pull off as easily!

  • http://www.glambunctious.com/ Kristen / Glambunctious

    Bronze Ora looks beautiful – I like that it’s a shade you can’t describe too easily, it’s multi-faceted. Such a pretty shade on you, too. Love the look!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Kristen! You should swatch it to see how it looks on you!

  • peggy timmermans

    It is beautiful! About the packaging; Bare Minerals do have almost exactly the same ones! Very handy and pretty!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Peggy, thanks for the heads-up! I haven’t tried the Bare Minerals one. I should look into it now :)

  • VickyM

    I love the shadow, and it does have a lot of dimension to it, I like how natural it looks on you. Also that ring you have looks like such an amazing piece of artwork, love it! :D

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Vicky! It’s a brand I got from back home (Taiwan). I think the inspiration comes from a wall-climbing plant we have there!

  • http://lifeandlensofbeauty.blogspot.hk/ Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    I love PB and eyeing Bronze Ora (now) & LM Sandglow (a couple months ago), maybe I should check out EB Cosmic Bliss now XDDD oh dear!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenni, sounds like we have similar tastes in eyeshadows! You should check Cosmic Bliss out. I know it looks like just another neutral quad (or even trio since I use the lightest shade as a base only occasionally), but for some reason I keep going back to it!

      Definitely check out Bronze Ora as well! Can’t get enough of this beauty!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    This looks really interesting! (as in the packaging and all) and the colour seems great for a natural summery look. Or my kind of natural summery anyway…

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, I actually think it’s quite natural! Bronze Ora is much less metallic than the coppery shade in the collection. It’s something I can wear with ease all the time (and I have been doing precisely that)!
