There are two single eyeshadows included with the Chanel Les Contrastes de Chanel Collection: Vert Khaki (khaki) and Taupe Grise (chocolate grey). Each retails for $28.50 and contains 0.07 oz. of product. I originally planned to review them together, but I adore Vert Khaki too much–it deserves its own post!
Confession time: I ADORE OLIVE GREENS. (Is it a confession if everybody already knows? Guess not!) No, but seriously, I totally have a thing for antique-y earth tones. I’m so smitten over Vert Khaki as soon as I gazed down upon it… and then fell head-over-heels in love with it after swatching it. It’s this beautiful concoction of darkened olive green with a metallic gold sheen and flashes of gold and emerald green shimmer. Divine! LOVE!
It has the same silky, soft texture of Chanel eyeshadow, and it’s richly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It’s shimmering without being frosty, and it blends out beautifully with other shadows. Not the most affordable eyeshadow on the market, but at least they don’t skimp on quantity–a little more than average.
I’m excited to try this over a gold base, just to bring out the golden tones in it!
