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.

Chanel Holiday 2011: 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.
