Chanel Revelation (897) is a moderately warm-toned, medium taupe with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition eyeliner that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.01 oz.
Chanel Revelation (897) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with warm, golden undertones and cooler, icy silver and lavender shimmer. It had good pigmentation in one layer, though it took two for full opacity. The texture was smooth, thin, and lightly creamy without being too waxy or silicone-heavy, so it glided across my lash line comfortably but deposited even color as it went. This shade lasted for nine and a half hours on me before it started to thin.

This new waterproof eyeliner formula delivers long-lasting definition with a twist of the wrist: Colour winds up when you need it, winds down when you don't. A built-in sharpener at the opposite end detaches for quick refreshes.
