Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a twist-up, cream-based eyeshadow that’s supposed to be lightweight, long-wearing, and cooling when it touches the skin. It’s supposed to give a “shimmering veil of color.” The formula is semi-sheer to semi-opaque in one stroke, and it is buildable to opaque coverage with two to three passes, or you can use a flat, firm synthetic brush, which seems to give mostly opaque coverage more readily. I also find using a brush offers infinitely more precision, maneuverability, and gives a more even layer of coverage. The wear varied from shade to shade; as short as six hours to as long as eight hours. The formula has a fair amount of slip but dries down quickly, and it does have a wet, cool sensation when the eyeshadow hits the lid, though this is lessened if you use a separate applicator. I think this formula works best in more neutral tones, as they’re more forgiving on the skin, but shades like purple and blue don’t work as well when they’re even a little bit uneven.

Chanel Laurier Rose (127) Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a rosy copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. A single pass yielded semi-opaque coverage, and two layers was enough for full opacity. This shade was the easiest shade to use in a large area at full intensity, as it applied evenly. When I tested it, the color wore well for eight hours before it started to crease. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Olilvine (137) Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium olive green with a cooler coloring overall, but the undertone is slightly warm, so it takes on a more neutral appearance. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to opaque coverage with three layers. This shade was the hardest to work with, as it had less slip and applied more unevenly as a result. Even when I tried to use a brush, the drying time was too quick, so it had already partially dried on the brush. On me, it started to show signs of creasing after seven hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Caroube (147) Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a cool-toned, muted taupe brown with a pearly sheen and lighter gold shimmer. It has more of a burgundy undertone with a warmer shimmer color. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied in one go, while it was buildable to full intensity with two layers. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Campanule (107) Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a slightly muted, cool-toned violet purple with faint sparkle. It had sheer coverage in one pass, and it took four layers to get opaque color (it’s supposed to be sheer, though). The consistency was a little drier compared to most of the other shades, though it was reasonably blendable. It tended to grab my natural creases while I was applying, and it was hard to smooth out the color so that it didn’t emphasize the lines on my eyelid. It started to crease after seven hours on me and had minor fall out. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Azulejo (117) Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is an aqua blue with a subtle, warmer green tint to it and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage in one pass, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with three layers (it didn’t seem to build to fully opaque color for me). It is somewhat blendable on the lid, as I could get the edges, but I couldn’t seem to blend it for an even layer of color. When I wore it, the color started creasing after six hours.

I have been trying to resist getting Laurier Rose but it’s so pretty that I don’t know how much longer I can hold off 😉

Caroube is really pretty and scored well, but too bad the more unique colors (olive, purple, and teal) didn’t perform as well.

Yeah, these grades look super accurate. I picked up the brown and the rose gold when they first showed up in store and I absolutely LOVE them. But even a quick hand swatch of the other colors was enough to show how poorly performing they are which is a huge shame because I *love* this stylos and would honestly get every single color they released if they could maintain quality consistency. So weird how differently they perform depending on color.

I just LOVE Laurier Rose! It’s a beautiful shade that looks perfect for all over the lid. I really like the color of Olivine too but that swatch is a little disappointing. I wish it was more pigmented. It would have been perfect

Agreed, Laurier Rose is a stunner. I never look at Chanel when it comes to eyes. But I did swatch their liquid liner the other day (dark brown) and really like it. Hmm….

Only the first shade really interests me–the rest are a bit muted for my liking. I’m a huge fan of Laura Mercier’s Caviar Sticks, though, so I think I’ll stick with those since they’re at a less painful price point.

The Caviar Sticks have a similar look on the lids, IMO, just not the same texture initially (but that’s such a limited part of it!).

Laurier Rose and Caroube look gorgeous! I hope they will be more shades! Like a gorgeous olive/gold one and a purple one (with shimmer) 🙂 xx

That would be nice! Though I’m not confident in the formula without shimmer given my experience with Olivine, lol!

Laurier Rose is gorgeous! I love warm pinky coppery shades, they’re such a weakness of mine, and it’s just different enough from the ones I have (pinker/less red) for my mind to try to justify it. Must resist! Maybe I’ll get MAC Mythical instead, that’s the closest dupe I’m seeing on your list.

I have all of these and I am pretty happy with them. I use Nars primer under them. I usually get some color on either with the actual pen or via brush then blend with a brush. The purple, blue, and olive are sheer initially, I agree. Sometime, I just wear it as a wash. Others times, I build it up.I actually do fine with the Olivine I have. I have worn it alone during the day just as a neutral or in the crease with something lighter on the lid. These are my only Chanel eye products. So, I really have nothing to compare it to. They certainly are not my favorite eye products. But, nonetheless. I like them and find them rather easy to work with for a quick look for a summer day.

So glad that you’re enjoying them, Nicole! 🙂 It’s possible that Olivine dried out on its way to me (though it makes me nervous about how well it’ll store), as it seems like it was a lot easier for you to work with it!

Well, they are NOT Tom Ford quality. Don’t get me wrong there. I work one eye at a time and out of habit move quick. So,i can’t say that it would not be dry of one was slow. But I’m happywith them so far Do ,I love then enough to buy a back up? No. But,ill consider more in the future. These were my first eye stylos ever! So,I was pretty impressed. I’ve never even tried the Carviar sticks I see raved about!I think I’m liking cream forms of eye color more and more. I never before your blog for the hang of using them together just like powders. I just would use one ore use it as a base. Hope it didn’t seem like I was trying to override your review. I was Just giving my experience with them. I did buy in store as well too vs mail order.

Of course the shade I’m most interested is Olivine that got the C+. I may go and swatch it anyway and see. I wish they had Chanel at my Sephora so I could get a sample. Do you remember Laura Mercier Storm that you list as a dupe? I’ll have to check that one out too. Those are a shade I don’t really have.

I was so hopeful the colours you typically do not see in stick form would perform well.. Sadly, just not even remotely what I expected. I thought the stick colours (especially Campanule and Azulejo) would be far more saturated..with a bit of shimmer. Kinda like an intense pop of creamy colour. The two performers out of the group are shades already well covered in my stash. These are a disappointing pass for me.

I was surprised they didn’t build more even with a brush – Campanule is such a cool shade. Azulejo I feel has a few close-enough powder eyeshadow options, but Campanule was harder to replicate.

Thank you Wendy & Christine! Now I don’t feel badly about missing them. What a bummer, though! I’d expect so much more from Chanel!

Spot on ratings! I picked up LR and Caroube. I used Caroube as an all over shade over the weekend and found that it was really hard to blend out if applied straight from the stick. It set too quickly and it was easy to see where I applied it directly. I will have to try it again with a synthetic brush!

I got Caroube. I haven’t tried on my new purchase yet because it is still spring here, but when June is here, I can’t wait to wear all my new purchases. I did try the tester and I knew it was perfect!

I love the colors Olivine, Campanule, and Azulejo, too bad they perform so poorly! Definitely not worth struggling to apply a product at this price point. My wallet thanks you, Christine 🙂

Thanks for your review! How does the Laurier Rose color compare to the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold? Your opinion will be very helpful 🙂 Thanks!
