Guerlain Two Spicy Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow Duo is a new Fall 2013 eyeshadow palette featuring the true colors of of the season in a gorgeous warm orange and brown shadow melody.

You’ll run into a ton of sultry eye looks for Fall but none quite embody the true essence of fall like Guerlain’s Two Spicy Eyeshadow Duo.

Loves this one!

Guerlain Two Spicy Ecrin 2 Coueleurs

Guerlain Two Spicy Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow Duo ($44) comes housed in a slick golden matchbox style compact with a generously sized mirror and dual ended sponge applicators.

The palette is made up of a solid shadow of rich chocolate-y brown and a more luminous shade of orange coral. The more pigmented of the shadows is the brown and the sparkly orange color is used as an overcoat to add pretty luminous shimmer to your completed eye look. You might associate the idea of the palette with products like Sonia Eye Kashuk Shadow Quads.

I was actually pleasantly surprised that the lovely orange produces far more color than I thought it would so it can easily be worn as a color wash on your eyes for a hint of color and a ton of sparkle. Guerlain suggests using it as an overcoat over the brown eyeshadow to add a hint of sparkle. It’s a bit of a flaky texture but applies with very minimal fall out and blends out quite easily for such an unusual texture. I applied it all over my lids for my look below and accented my outer crease with the brown to add depth.

I find the palette unusual as the two shadow formulas are so dramatically different. One being soft, pigmented, and more of a traditional semi-matte formula versus the other being more of a chunkier, flakier almost pressed pigment type texture. Regardless of the contrast in the formula the shades just work well together!

I think the look created using the two shades is very Fall friendly and lovely!

    As soon as I saw this duo, it made me think of a LE Maybelline duo that came out last Summer that I picked up, Oriental Spice, and I had to pull it out so I could wear it soon. The brown is a bit lighter & warmer and the orange isn’t nearly as shimmery (I might put a bit of one of the shades from the Sonia Kashuk Shimmering Sands quad on it), but it’s still a really nice combo of color. I happen to think orange can be a pretty versatile color, when you pair up the right shade with other colors. These look great on you Muse.

    PS: I’m very curious as to how you’re liking the Amber DRPG book.

    Oh this is the one I wanted to swatch but they didn’t have the tester! It really looks stunning! I’ll wait before I take the plunge since I already got the Madame Rougit blush and Madame Batifole nail polish, looove both! :)
