With the gorgeous Voilette de Madame Guerlain released these eyeshadow duos. They are very fitting with the idea behind Voilette de Madame because these duos are all about layers catching and reflecting the light in a beautiful way. I know that everyone is distracted by the gorgeous 4-colour blush Madame Rougit and the lipsticks, but these are very much worth looking into. Some duos look quite bold and daring but once you use them they make a lot of sense. Today I’m showing you Two Spicy: a combination of a matte dark brown with a bright coral. Bright coral you say? Well yes, the end result was very different from what I expected!

The eyeshadow duos come in a thin golden compact case. It’s a 100% pure Gurelain and they remind me of the thinner version of their eyeshadow quads. When you open the case you get to see two eyeshadows and a little dual ended applicator. There is also a little mirror. The idea of these duo eyeshadows is to combine a matte/satin eyeshadow with a glittery/shimmery shade. Each eyeshadow duo name starts with Two..  An eyeshadow duo contains a total of 4g and goes for 42.50 euro. It’s definitely not the cheapest but it’s pretty much the average price of most high-end eyeshadows.

Two Spicy 08 contains a satin dark neutral toned brown. When blended out it becomes more of a warm brown. This is one of those interesting shades that look a bit different when you use them lighter or darker. You can make it look like an almost cool-toned intense brown or blend it out to a soft medium warm brown. The colour is very pigmented and smooth and soft. It’s not a matte but a very subtle satin. If you look closely you see that it contains the most finely milled shimmers. The other shade is a hot bright shimmery coral. Don’t be scared though because this is really meant to be used as a veil over the dark brown. When swatched you will see its sheer quality. Now this is not just another shimmery eyeshadow. It’s a very interesting shimmer that has this glossy almost wet-like effect. It is very different from the shimmery eyeshadows that I have.

Two Spicy is a little more versatile than you think. Guerlain says you can use it in different ways but my favourite way to use it is quite simple. First I applied the dark brown all over the eye-lid. I blended it out to a more softer brown and intensified it on the outer edges. Then I used the coral shade in the middle of my eye. You just pat it on the dark brown. I didn’t experienced any fall-out. The coral over the dark brown gives a more copper/bronze effect overall. It gives the most beautiful glossy/sparkly effect. So you see, there is nothing to be scared of. I am so pleased with these eyeshadow duo that I might get one more. The quality of these are outstanding and if you want something that is very glamorous you must give these a chance!

I have two parisian and love this duo, I swatched in on different counters and at some the duos where dry but mine is super soft and last all day. I am all over lace, black eyeshadow with glitter.

  5. I am delurking to say that that is the prettiest top/dress I have ever seen in my life. May I ask where you got it?

    • Hey Ryou,
      Thanks a lot for liking it!
      I got this top a few years ago from Only.
      I do think you can find something similar soon though, I have seen a lot of lace around ehre ;).

  6. This is such a stunning combination & I love how it looks on you! Beautiful!

  7. Wow, aparte maar prachtige combinatie. Die matte kleur is amazing! En wat een mooie foto’s!

  8. I really like the brown shade. It looks gorgeous on you!

  9. You’re looking really elegant in this photos, Teri!

  10. You made something really gorgeous with this duo, Teri! I’m repeating after myself constantly.. but I absolutely love every single one of your pictures again. Love that top/dress you’re wearing too, it’s very pretty! :)

    • Aaaw Isablle, you make me so happy with those sweet comments! <3
      I really loved it on you too though, it’s a great duo!

  11. Wat een prachtige duo! Zou hem heel graag kopen maar zijn ze al uit in België?

  12. Teri! I love your hair and your top here!!! Extremely gorgeous, girl.

    And the duo is pretty, too, haha, but not as pretty as you!

  13. There’s that gorgeous top again! And I love your poses (if you can call them that) and expression in these photos, you look so stunning. But okay, I am getting off topic again. About the product! I really like this duo. The colors go surprisingly well together.

    • Lol ‘poses’. I wished I knew what I was doing, hah!
      Thank you so much dear, your comments are the best! ^^

  14. Pretty!!! I love how the sparkle looks! I swatched Two Gossip (gold/purple) and I kinda want that too :p

  15. leuke combinatie :) zou ik zelf dragen

  16. Wow, wat een prachtige kleuren!

  17. Oh my… these are such gorgeous shades. Loved the copper shade that you created on your lids.

  18. This is one duo that I am drooling over and on you it looks fabolous. I have to check that out at the airport when I am flying back. You wear sparkles so good. Xox

    • Yes, you should really swatch it!
      I think it’s actually one of the better formulas Guerlain came up with in terms of eyeshadows. Very smooth and pigmented!

  19. This is the duo I read about most. So this must be one of the more popular ones? I have yet to see these in person, but this combo looks great. I LOVE the coral shade!

    • I think it’s because it’s the most wearable and Guerlain seems to send these sample to every blogger worldwide? It’s definitely a hit in the making!

  20. You look gorgeous here! The red is much more wearable than it looks in the pan. I still can’t choose a duo cause I’m strictly nudes and browns, hopefully they will release one without a crazy colour he he :) great review and thank you for the swatches! x

    • Hey Ellie,

      I think if you like neutrals you will love Two Spicy the most. I know they look a bit crazy in the pan but they really are very wearable. Well, wearable as in easy to use. The sparkly bit is definitely more for evening or special occasion but in the most amazing way!

  21. Shimmer-mat en bruin-oranje/rood-achtig. Vreemde combi in een palette. Maar, eenmaal op je ogen ziet het er prachtig uit! :-)

    • Idd, Guerlain heeft het toch wel heel goed uitgekozen moet ik zeggen. Ik heb andere duos gezien en als ze eenmaal aangebracht op de ogen ziet het er allemaal echt prachtig uit!
