Chanel Palpitation (104) Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a "soft rose." It's a muted, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. Applied dry, it had softer, semi-opaque color payoff, and then applied with a dampened brush, the color intensified slightly and was more opaque. However, using a dampened brush left a hard, darkened surface on the pan that had to be rubbed/scraped away to become usable again. The texture was slightly powdery, so it had to be packed and patted on carefully if applied dry to get any intensity. When I tried using it with a dampened brush, it was hard to get the color to transfer to the skin--just stuck to the brush. On the lid, it lasted for seven hours before fading. Chanel Quadrille #3 (LE) is lighter, warmer. Makeup Geek Cupcake (P, $5.99) is warmer, more shimmery. Chanel Rose Favorite (LE, $28.50) is brighter, cooler-toned.

An instant CHANEL classic, this ultra-fine powder eyeshadow is sensuous in feel, foolproof in its application, fabulous in its range of finishes: matte, shimmer and satin. All shades are complementary and can be blended with one another to lighten, darken or intensify tone.
