WHERE TO BUY
Guerlain Bois des Indes (06) 5 Couleurs Palette ($69.00 / €60.50 / 300 lei for 6 g / 0.21 oz) is a classy combination of nudes in three different finishes, so you can easily achieve a day or evening makeup look. I got the product as a tester so the original packaging I showed to you when I reviewed Guerlain Coque D’Or Palette last week. With Guerlain is always about elegance and style without being too dramatic, so the black compact is yet simple and chic.
Guerlain Bois de Indes #01 is a light pinkish white with a subtle satin finish. It had a good color payoff even on bare skin, but the color looks even more intense over an eyeshadow primer.
It had a smooth and silky texture with a very comfortable and non-drying formula. It’s one of the best shadows in the palette and a perfect shade to brighten up your makeup and add luminosity. It gave me 8 hours wear before it started to fade.
Guerlain Bois de Indes #02 is a light peachy beige with gold undertones and a satin finish. I absolutely love this as a base color, as it not extremely pigmented or intense, just a soft hue.
It adds freshness to my makeup while looking fairly pigmented even when applied without an eyeshadow primer. It adheres well onto the skin, being easily blendable and gives no fall-out during the application. I love its smooth, silky texture with a light, comfortable formula that didn’t feel dry for one second.
It glides easily across the lid, without looking patchy or uneven. I had about eight and a half hours wear time before I noticed signs of fading.
Guerlain Bois de Indes #03 is a light-medium rosy beige with a matte finish. I love the color in the pan but it gave me such a struggle in making it show as a swatch on bare skin. It has a semi-sheer coverage, a very light pigmentation.
Use it as a base color, applied all over the lid and it would be perfect for a nude, day makeup look. It had a smooth and fine texture, though it was thin with a comfortable feel. It had no fall-out during the application but it sheered out when blended. I gave about six and half hours wear before it started to show signs of fading.
Guerlain Bois de Indes #04 is a light brown with gold shimmer and a satin finish. It had a decent color payoff, nothing to intense so I wouldn’t be calling this shade exactly a smoky one. Indeed is one of the darkest shades in the compact and can be used for an evening makeup, to add more shadow but it won’t look too intense without an eyeshadow primer.
The texture was finely milded but dusty so it had some fall-out right from the pan when I swatch it. Mind the application as even though it’s easily blendable it doesn’t adhere too well onto the skin without an eyeshadow primer. I had about eight hours wear with this formula.
Guerlain Bois de Indes #05 is a medium-dark grayish brown with matte finish. It had a semi-sheer coverage, having its intensity enhanced by an eyeshadow primer. Being the darkest shade from the palette and especially called a smoky shade I would have expected to show a richer and more pigmented color.
It’s easy to smudge it underneath your lower lash line and on the outer corner of the lid but it takes some layering to darken the area. The texture feels fine and smooth but the formula is a bit dry so the color looks uneven when applied. I had no fall-out during the application but it sheered out noticeably when blended. I had about seven hours wear with this formula.
