|Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow in Havana|
Havana, in the tube, looks like it would be some form of green bronze with multi-colored glimmering flecks. It's housed in a tube very similar to the tubes of KissKiss Gloss. They made the container heavily frosted which makes it more difficult to tell what the color of the eyeshadow truly is but I suppose that helps differentiate it from the glosses.

Opening the tube, you will find the doe foot applicator, which I'm sure reminds a lot of people of the Chanel Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadows. In reality, the similarity ends there. Guerlain's product is a cream shadow and it applies like a runnier version of potted cream shadows that you may have used from brands like Bobbi Brown. If anything, I find it more similar to Laura Mercier's Metallic Creme Eye Colour which is sold in a tube like oil paint.

For layering, I found a YSL duo that has a green bronze shade very similar to the Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow in Havana. This is the YSL Ombres Duolumieres Eyeshadow Duo #27 - Golden Pink and Precious Bronze.

This eyeshadow duo is very sheer. The Precious Bronze side has an olive tone and the Golden Pink side has a golden sheen. Since this isn't a review for the YSL duo, I'll leave it at that and show you the swatches below so you can imagine how I put the eye look above together. If I had more time, I would add a third shade on the crease and slightly above it to give it a little more depth. But I wanted to show off Havana a little better so I left it at that.

I'm happy to add an iridescent green bronze cream eyeshadow to my collection but I'm not sure that I'm impressed by the formula of the Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow. It's just not that easy to use and takes me time to blend out. Using a proper brush, it comes out alright but it doesn't lend itself well to blending out with fingers. I'm keeping Havana because I find it to be a rather unique color that I have use for but I'd like to see them come out with lighter shades like gold and peach (not pink) in the future.
