Guerlain No.08 Grey Charles Ecrin 1 Couleur is one of the 12 new shades from spring 2015 Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Collection (review, swatches, photos). I mentioned this shade before in the review of Guerlain Brownie & Clyde Ecrin 1 Couleur when I said these two have, in my opinion, the best formula from all of the new Guerlain matte eyeshadows.

Guerlain Grey Charles Ecrin 1 Couleur (165.00 Lei / $34.00 / £21.15 for 2 g) is a light-medium silver grey with cool undertones and a soft matte finish. It has a medium opacity, being more pigmented when applied over an eyeshadow base. It has a wonderful smooth and silky texture, which feels so soft to the touch. It applies effortlessly, adheres well on the skin, easily blendable and has no fall out. I love how this shade looks so natural in every makeup look, I like to use it in the crease for blending or simply on the lid for a more natural, day time appropriate look.
This color wore well for more than 8 hours without creasing or noticing any fall out. If you are interested in seeing how this color looks like in combination with other shades you can check out my recent spring Guerlain makeup look (tutorial, photos).
