In terms of color, the Guerlain 500 Les Ombres Turandot Écrin 4 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palette is quite different from it’s limited edition sister, LIU, but shines just as bright with beauty.

What the Neiman Marcus website has to say about Guerlain Les Ombres Turandot Écrin 4 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palette:

This precious quartet showcases a subtle monochrome palette for vibrant and refined eyes. The interplay of textures and colors effortlessly takes your look from morning to night.

Two matte and two iridescent textures are combined to perfection. Refined down to the slightest detail, the elegant golden case travels in a black suedette pouch with red topstitching.

The four shades can be worn all together (as shown in my eye look) or in different combinations.  All of them have a great pigment and this has been one of my favorite Guerlain quads to use and blend.  The shades are refined, vibrant and should compliment all eye looks, though this quad does lean warm.

On the eye, the two burgundy toned shades look extremely similar.  You almost can’t see the difference between the crease color and the lid color.  I have the golden shade at the inner corners and above the crease and the brown shade on the outer V.  The eye liner is Chanel Brun Le Crayon Yeux and the mascara is MAC Plush Lash.

For more information on this collection, please see the Official Press Release.

The Guerlain Les Ombres Turandot Écrin 4 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palette retails for $59.00 and can be purchased at Neiman Marucs, Nordstrom or at your local Guerlain counter.

    • thank you! Definitely on the high end, cost-wise, but if you’ve been looking to splurge or try out a Guerlain quad this is a good one to do it with!

  1. I love the burgundy tones, even though it’d be nice if there was a bit more variation between them. This sort of color is one of the few ways I can wear red-toned shadows on my eyes without looking ill or like I’ve been crying! I have to say, the packaging on these is just gorgeous. It looks similar to some of the LE Laura Mercier palettes that have come out in the past, that are just sleek silver with a large mirror.
