Guerlain 1 Coleur Eyeshadow, 05 Copperfield………….With Comparisons!
Recently, Guerlain released a new range of single eyeshadows in which, there are 12 shades available. Some with matte, sparkling and satin finishes.
Having swatched all of them, i decided on the Taupe Secret reviewed here. A great shade that works with most colours. I liked that so much, i bought another one, 05 Copperfield, which i have worn a few times and will be reviewing today.
In line with others I’ve tried in the Guerlain range. It is smooth and highly pigmented. Not as silky in texture as Taupe Secret but still very easily blended out and this one has a bit of golden shimmer to it. I hate matte shades!
It is a true copper shade and i don’t own any copper shades. I do own a lot of bronze shades though. It does work very well with my blue eyes and i think it would also work great on hazel and brown eyes too.
It can be used both wet and dry. With Taupe Secret, there was a definition between using it both ways. Wet it came up more silvery and metallic. Copperfield didn’t really come up any different, maybe more pigmented but as its pigmented anyway, there would be no real reason for you to use it wet. See pic below, right is wet.
I have compared it with a few similar shades which i own. As i said, i don’t own any other copper shades. I think the closest one though to it would be Dior Fusion Mono 661 Météore, pictured below. Fusion mono comes up a bit more bronzy brown.
The other shades i own are largely bronze shades and i have shown comparisons with them below.
Chanel Tigre has more of an orange undertone with fine pink microshimmer, Bobbi Brown Bronze sugar is more of a beige undertone with silver shimmer, Chanel Illusion D’Ombre has a lilac indertone with pink, green and golden micro shimmer. Bobbi Brown Beach Bronze is a brown with pink undertone and golden shimmer and lastly; the Chanel shade from the Charming palette has much more golden brown in it.
It gives a lovely intense finish with the MAC shader brush and is going to be a fantastic shade for summer. Oh Yes! It doesn’t crease or fade over the day either.
Have you tried any of the Guerlain 1 Coleur eyeshadows yet? Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
