Guerlain Imperial Moon Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Imperial Moon (011)

Guerlain Imperial Moon (011) Ombres G Quad Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.2 oz.) includes four shimmery eyeshadows that ranged from softer, satin to brighter, more sparkly and metallic finishes. The color story was more subdued, slightly neutral in hue. Three of the four shades were very pigmented, while one was sheerer, but they were all blendable, sat well on bare skin, and lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of wear.

Ingredients

Imperial Moon #1

Imperial Moon #1 is a soft black with more of a satin finish that blended out to more of a semi-matte finish when really buffed out.

  • Opaque coverage applied wet and dry
  • Moderately-dense, firmer but not stiff, no powderiness
  • Blendable, “melted” on skin for a smoother finish
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours of wear on average)

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.

  • Blendable, “melted” on skin for a smoother finish
  • Long-wearing (8 hours of wear on average)
