Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Silky Powder in ENJOY for Spring 2016, Limited Edition
ENJOY is the Spring Limited Edition of the iconic eye shadow Ecrin 1 Couleur. With this shade, Guerlain offers a new buttercup shade to creates light and a delicate halo to illuminate and intensify your eye look. Nested in a new shiny metallic rose gold (some would say gleaming copper) compact, the powder invites us to see the world in color.
Incorporating Guerlain's trademarked Lastever technology, the pigments are coated in a gel allowing them to stay put all day long without settling into creases or fine lines. ENJOY is an essential must-have to use to your heart’s content. Use it as a base; use it layered or blended with other shades; or use it as a highlighter. I have found that it's gorgeous when used with any shade that has a touch of periwinkle in it - opposites on the color wheel. It reminds me of the garden mixture of violets and buttercups. It also makes my eyes pop blue. It also looks great with any copper shade.
As you can see in the photo above, the eye shadow comes with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator. It's handy if you want to take the compact along, but it's also useful to apply the shadow heavily. For my swatch photo below, I applied it moderately, knowing the noontime sun would wash out the color a bit.
I'm thrilled with it. If you need a gleaming yellow addition to your eye shadow wardrobe, you can find ENJOY at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and any source in store or online where Guerlain color is sold. It has a perfect name. I think you'll enjoy it as much as I am.
