The shadows in Velours D'or are suitably shimmery (except for the black; it is matte) and they come in royal hues of deep grey, gold, dark violet and black (clockwise from bottom left). The golden shade is embossed with Guerlain's signature bee print whereas the others have honeycomb patterns.

I had high hopes for this quad ever since I read that Guerlain is where the quality comes into play but it didn’t deliver. The pigmentation level is nothing to shout about, the shadows don’t feel super smooth or silky plus they look a tad dull and muddy.

This quad may be average in every way but thankfully it is very wearable.

The lashes that I'm wearing in my EOTD, DJ 采粧 07, bears a slight resemblance to the 728 style made popular by 孫芸芸 (Taiwanese socialite).

Price: US$ 13.55 for 10 pairs

The varying lengths and the criss-cross patterns for this particular style gives a spiky look that isn't over the top at all. It isn't as flexible as DJ 采粧 12 lashes (full review here), but it is still nice to wear. You can purchase DJ 采粧 07 from kkcenterhk.com.
