Chanel Spring 2012: Chanel Rose de Mai Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Rose de Mai Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pink.” It’s more like a rosy beige, maybe a rosy peach, with a nearly matte finish. MAC Pink Frontier is a little less pink and shimmery. theBalm Stubborn is noticeably less pink and has a frosted finish. Inglot #341 is similar but just a smidgen less pink.

It has a silky soft feel; the powder is incredibly finely-milled, which gives it a yielding, dense texture that melts against the skin. It applies smoothly and without any powderiness, despite its softness, and really clings and adheres to the skin well. This type of color is an effortless nude, and it may not work on everyone, but it will be stunning on the right complexion. I see this working best on light to light-medium skin tones, both warm and cool.

    Very disappointed with the formula..for it price tag it could have been better..and the colour is easly dupeable..i think i’ll skip it..:)

  2. Pawsha

    Never putting pink eyeshadows on my eyes again. Looks terrible and sick!

  3. Hm… I was more excited by the other single shadow and the quad when I saw the initial press release for this collection, but now you have me thinking of this one. Seems like a great everyday shadow and I’ve been very happy with the Chanel singles I have so far.

  4. puffnstuff

    very pretty; i dont think it would look good on me though-nc 35…

  5. Ana G.

    Lovely shade but too light for my NC40 skin tone.

  6. Amandale

    Almost a perfect score! lol

  7. Caiti

    This will be perfect for my extremely pale, warm-toned complexion.

  8. Nancy

    I had to return mine. It is beautiful but it just did not work on me. I am NW20 I LOVE Tigerlily it’s sooo pretty

  9. I don’t think this colour will show up on my skin. It’s also not really the type of colour I like to wear.

  10. Linda

    When I first see the picture I had hoped that it’s a blush, lol. I still think it will be lovely color for blush, but for eyeshadow… I’ll pass.

  11. Barely can see it. Mine as well not wear it.
