CHANEL Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow


As a part of their eyeshadow range, Chanel have a collection of individually packaged shadows that come in a great variety of shades. The two featured here have since made their way into the Chanel holiday 2011 collection which is available on the counter now. These two have a particularly festive and warm appeal to them and are gorgeous for creating a festive party look.

The shadows are well pigmented and blend brilliantly because the shadows are finely milled to create the soft and velvety feel of them. I found that because of this, a lot of product gathers on the brush so a little goes a long way with this product, so I find myself tapping off excess shadow otherwise it would shed down my face!

They are beautifully packaged in the classic Chanel style which is sleek and sophisticated, the product itself is quite small and the packaging is compact, yet they have made it bigger than the product which enables a perfect sized mirror to be put in place which is always handy. The range of the shadows is quite large for Chanel and because of this are available in iridescent, matte or satin effects so there is plenty to choose from. The two here are both beautifully shimmery and eye-catching, a perfect choice for the holiday collection.

The shadows are very luxurious and are quite expensive considering you are only purchasing a single shadow, but you do get the sophistication and beauty that is Chanel. Perhaps that is a strong enough allure....

  2. I have these shadows in two colors, Safari and Mahogany. I normally wouldn't spend the big bucks on chanel eyeshadow, but mahogany is the most perfect rich brown, and safari is so stunning that I just couldn't resist. Love them both!

  3. Blazing Gold looks lovely! I've never tried Chanel single shadows due to their price but I might splurge on this one(:

  4. These are pretty. I'm not sure if they are pretty enough though to make me want to spend the Chanel price. Perhaps if they were duos or trios.

  10. The blazing gold one looks gorgeous it seems a bit cooler than a regular gold colour. I think I will go and have a swatch in the counter tomorrow. Thank you for your recommendation.

  11. Lovely colors, but the packaging it's a little bit huge for a small eye-shadow.. :)
    But still gorgeous eye-shadow

  13. Love the colours and at last, an eyeshadow compact with a decent mirror! Agree with previous comments though, perhaps a duo would have been more appealing.
