Pink is everywhere in Guerlain‘s Crazy Paris Collection, including the Crazy Paris Eye Palette. At the first sight, the color combination seems a little odd. However, that’s also why you can create many different looks with it!
Guerlain Crazy Paris Eye Palette (RRP in Belgium: 78 euros) is housed in the same compact as last year’s Liu as well as some Guerlain dutyfree exclusives. The word “Paris” is written on the mirror in pink.
Guerlain Crazy Paris Eye Palette contains four eyeshadows and two liner shades. The total weight is 10,5 grams (0.37 oz), which is rather generous. There are also two applicators, including a tiny little pink brush.
The four eyeshadow shades include an orangey copper, a pale golden beige, a metallic white, and a pink with micro-glitter. The orangey copper is very smooth and pigmented, and the other three are slightly drier and sheerer. The golden beige and white are very intense on top of a primer, and the pink is fine. In all honesty though, I prefer it this way, as a very out-there pink wouldn’t be as easy to pull off. I didn’t spot any fallout from the micro-glitter, either.
Out of the two “liner” shades, only the black behaves like a gel liner when used damp (it is slightly “sticky” when it is damp). It lasts as well as a gel liner on me! The gray on the other hand, really is more like an eyeshadow. I don’t see much of a difference when it is damp, so I personally wouldn’t line my upper lash line with it.
Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows:
The two liner shades swatched dry and damp:
Again, I have to mention that the orangey copper, golden beige, and black are repeats from last year’s Liu. If you own that one, you’ll only be getting three new shades with Crazy Paris.
I have done two different looks with Crazy Paris. You have seen the first here with the golden beige on the inner two thirds, orangey copper on the other third, metallic white in my inner corners, and the black used damp as liner:
It looks like this in a full-face shot:
The second look is more “colorful.” I used the golden beige on the inner two thirds, the gray in the outer corners, the metallic white in the inner corners, and then I patted the pink on the outer third. I lined my upper lash line with the black and lower lash line with the gray:
See how the pink and gray make a pretty purple together?
For the rest of my face, I have Chanel Accent Joues Contraste, Guerlain Crazy Terracotta Healthy Glow Powder, and Guerlain Illusion Rouge Automatique on.
Bottom line: It is probably because I own Liu from last year and I personally don’t wear pink eyeshadow that much, but I am not as crazy about Guerlain Crazy Paris Eye Palette as I am about the rest of the collection. If you have some spare money to spend on this collection, I’d recommend any one of the Crazy Powders over this palette! However, quality-wise it’s fine, and you can do a lot of interesting looks with it!
