Chanel Blazing Gold Ombre Essentielle

Chanel Blazing Gold Ombre Essentielle ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a yellow gold with chunky gold sparkle. Unlike Beige Lame, this one was disappointing. The powder was soft but gritty–the larger sparkle didn’t seem to adhere and meld with the base color but separated from it. It resulted in poorer color payoff; it was sheer and uneven, and boy, it was a pain in the behind to apply. There was fall out all over the place!  There are many golds that compare well to this one, and often, they are better in texture and overall quality. You might consider Bare Escentuals Aspire, MAC Goldmine, or Make Up For Ever #10.

Chanel Beige Lame Ombre Essentielle

Chanel Beige Lame Ombre Essentielle ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark beige with multi-colored sparkles and a subtle hint of rose. The color payoff is nice with full color and true-to-pan color in one go. It translates exceptionally well on the lid–it really gives color and oomph without being over-the-top, smoky, or bright. You could wear it as a sheer wash of color or more opaque (which is how I wore it). I love that the multi-colored sparkle actually shows up on the lid and doesn’t end up all over your face, which was a bit of a surprise! The texture of Chanel’s individual eyeshadows is silky soft and very finely-milled; these two attributes combine to create an eyeshadow applies smoothly and blends out effortlessly.

Chanel Tweed Brun Rose Les Tissages de Chanel

Chanel Chanel Tweed Brun Rose Les Tissages de Chanel ($45.00 for 0.19 oz.) is pop of coral-orange with a surprisingly level of brightness. It looks more muted in the pan, but it can be rather vivacious when swatched. The golden shimmer woven on the top is just that, an overlay, so you won’t find the larger golden shimmer particles throughout the powder. What you will find is more of a pearled sheen; not too frosted but certainly not matte. It reminded me of MAC Ripe Peach, actually, though this has less pink, which means it can also compare to MAC Marine Life, which has more of a golden sheen.
