Wild Nudes (258)

Guerlain Wild Nudes (258) Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a mid-tone, neutral color story that was warm-toned and featured three matte eyeshadows and one shimmer. The shimmer was top tier in quality, while the mattes were still quite good, but two were a smidgen powdery.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have "intense pigments for long-lasting color" across four finishes: "intense satin," "deep matte," luminous metallic," and "radiant pearl." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented applied dry, but it seemed, by texture and look of the pan, to be a wet/dry formula to me, so I tried them damp as well. I didn't feel like using them dampened was necessary except for a few of the "radiant pearl" finish shades, which had more shimmer/sparkle.

The "deep matte" finish tended to have a firmer and more cream-like feel, so using a denser brush to pick up to apply and diffuse color was best, while the other finishes were more moderately-dense--firm but not stiff--and blended out well as they "melted" on my skin. The eyeshadows lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of fading with a few getting closer to nine hours of wear.

Even for $85 (outrageous but not as outrageous as the $115 this costs in Canada), I want a lot more excitement and wonderfulness in a quad. A few years ago, those new (and now d/c’d or reformulated) 5 pans from Dior offered better value, better quality and a lot more “excitement” (even the neutral ones) that this does, in my opinion.
