Chanel Notorious Ombre Contrast / Sculpting Veil

Chanel Notorious Ombre Contrast / Sculpting Veil ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mauve-taupe.” It’s a mauve-tinged gray-brown–it is dominated by gray and has a very cool-toned feel. As a contour color, I couldn’t think of anything similar that I’ve come across. As an eyeshadow, there are a few shades that come (somewhat) close. MAC Cloudy Afternoon is lighter and frosted. bareMinerals Exhale is slightly less mauve. Urban Decay Bust is a touch darker and more shimmery. MAC Fashion Fix is less mauve. NARS Lhasa is more mauve and shimmery.

Chanel Abstraction Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow

Chanel Abstraction Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “peach rose.” It looks very coral-pink in the pot, slightly pinker when swatched, but on my lid, it looked closer to the color you see in the pot–more coral-pink than anything else. Certainly warm-toned with coppery-gold and pink sparkle. MAC Love Spice is less pink. Urban Decay Free Love is much more coral and vibrant. MAC Quartz Fusion is redder.
