Guerlain Glittery Tiger Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Glittery Tiger

Guerlain Glittery Tiger Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that included three more shimmery shades paired with a deeper, semi-matte finish shade. I felt like two of the three shimmers were not quite as impressive as most of the recent Guerlain quads have been, though they were still good! The matte had to be built up, but it was easy to do so and easy to blend.

Ingredients

Glittery Tiger #1

Glittery Tiger #1 is a medium-dark, emerald green with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, pearly finish.

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.
