Guerlain Crazy Paris Eye Palette

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 compact

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

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:

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:

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!

How would you wear a pink eyeshadow?

    Since I find the pink more sheer/sparkly, I’d use it more over the center of the lid as a pop of colour. Although your pink and grey purple does look very pretty, must try it myself!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stamatia, I should try that in the center of my lid as well! That sounds like fun!

  • Siri Lovise Eliassen

    Sooo pretty ^^

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, girl <3

  • syrena85

    I love pink shades :-D I’m in love with Dior’s palettes from Bow collection. That’s probably why I didn’t buy this one. I actually already have all of these shades and after buying pearles, crazy terracotta, liosticks and nail coat it would be hard to justify. You look great in that makeup :-D

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Irena! You definitely picked some great stuff up from this collection!

  • Judith

    That looks very pretty on you, but I couldn’t pull off orange to save my life. I’ll pass on this one!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, yeah I know that orangey copper is very difficult for cooler-toned/fairer girls. You might enjoy other pieces from this collection much more!

  • beauties

    the second look is my favourite :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Eva!

  • Sara_BeauTime

    wow that second look, it almost convinced me to get this palette!
    I agree with you though, I also have the one from last year, which I love a lot and this one is not offering that much more other than fun for a few days but you should wear the second look more often, just telling… ;-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Sara! I’m just really happy I found a way to make it sorta wearable!

  • Luchessa Grossmann

    I like the second purple look on you :D Looks festive, but also goes for every day.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Luchessa! It’s a little more “fun” than my everyday look, but then again I’m a bit of a wimp LOL

  • peggy timmermans

    It’s not so easy to pull pink of but cmbined it works really well!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Peggy, I agree! It works well with that gray!

  • Angel

    The pink brush is so cute! I was kinda weary about the pink since I find that’s hard to pull off…. but the way you used it look gorgeous!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Angel! Actually, most pinks I’ve tried mix well with other shades. It is also not SUPER pigmented or metallic, which makes it easier to pull off.

  • Lily

    Hhmmm…. the eye palette this time is quite ‘meh’ compared to how my heart beat to Liu last year! This year, the powders are definitely more tempting :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, I agree! I also think it’s a pity that there are 3 repeats in this palette. If you own Liu you probably don’t need it!

  • Larie

    I really like the pink and gray look you put together. But this palette isn’t as striking to me as last year’s…that red POPPED last year, haha!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Larie! If I had to compare Liu with Crazy Paris, my vote goes to Liu as well. That and there is this really interesting taupe in there!

  • expatmuaddict

    I have to say Sunny, you can pull of colour combinations I would never think it put together! I agree that this is to me, an odd combination of colours-the only one I love is the pale gray. But you make it look SO good!! No wonder I buy so much of the stuff you recommend!!

    Stacey Expat Make-Up Addict

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL thanks, Stacey! This is a palette that puzzled me a little in the beginning, but it actually has a logic! I think you already picked up the truly exceptional pieces from this collection though. You can probably safely skip this one :)

  • liyeun

    Like other readers, that second look is really attractive. You look sexy and pulled it off very well. Although I hv the Liu eye palette, that 2nd look is trying to convince me. Hehe

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Liyuen! I’m happy it turned out OK. I am usually very skeptical about pink eyeshadows ;)

  • Jenny

    Both looks are just stunning on you, especially the second one. You’ve almost made me reconsider getting this–but it just doesn’t seem like that great of a deal if half of it is repeats from last year.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Jenny! If you have Liu then there might be too many repeats in this one for you!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Maybe it’s the pink in my hair, but this year’s palette I am LOVING the look of! last year’s did nothing for me! I might have to get this one!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, if you don’t own Liu this would be a better investment! I’m sure you can pull the pink off better than I can!

  • Liz

    The Liu palette from last year was so incredibly beautiful that it’s probably going to take a lot to surpass it, colourwise. But pink on eyes is always interesting, especially paired with greys.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I agree. I wouldn’t normally reach for pinks, but with that gray it works!

  • Sofia

    The palette is so cute and I love what you did to the pink, I never know what to do with that kind of pink eyeshadow (thus I don’t have any) but I love how you used it Sunny!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Sofia! I have seen a couple of pinks in palettes, but usually they play well with the other shades so they don’t look odd on!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I didn’t get this because the colours look similar to the Liu palette except for the pink and I find pink a little daunting to pull off. You did a marvelous job though. I love both looks.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jacqueline, yeah if you already own Liu, I’m saying you probably don’t need this!

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    i’m /really/ loving the 2nd look w/ the dark colors in the outer corner. so much so i’m pinning it to my inspiration board. it is a stunner!!!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Whoaa thanks so much, Jenn! I’m really flattered!

  • Icaria

    Gorgeous! I love the looks you did but for me these colors are a little been there done that plus I do believe I still have a few dupes. I did swatch it and truly, the textures were dreamy but the use I would get out of it doesn’t justify the splurge. Oh and the pink, I sometimes cheat by simply using a blush! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Helene! I don’t really think this one will pass as a blush though, since it contains micro glitter!

  • Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    Your eyes look SO AWESOME

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Brooke! The shades don’t make much sense at the first sight, but you can actually do a lot of fun things with them!

  • Isabelle

    You did a gorgeous look with this one. Will re-create! Thanks for the inspiration :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Isabelle! I’d love to see how the palette looks on you!
