Allow me to introduce what might be my favorite product of 2011...so far that is. This is the SS11 Ombres Perlees De Chanel Palette.
There is one thing that makes this palette so fabulous, yes the colors are PERFECT but that's not it. It is the texture and formula. The shadows are SO buttery smooth and soft they almost feel like a cream.
The shadows pigmented but not OPAQUE, and I think the pigmentation of these shadows really shows off the pearliness. I have been told that these shadows are supposed to mimic the luminescence of a pearl and they really do. They give a sheen to the skin that I have never seen an eyeshadow do before.
The colors are absolutely beautiful, from left to right they are a pearly white, a rose champagne, a duochrome plum, a greenish gunmetal duochrome and a true gunmetal. All the colors are so soft, that I cant get over it.
The swatches are really hard to capture. Its hard to capture the duo-chrome and the creaminess. I think the swatches on my fingers are better.
I love that it comes with a little brush and not just a sponge tip applicator, however I really think these shadows are best applied with your fingers! I know, thats wierd, but Im telling you they just go on so smooth with your fingers.
Another great thing about this palette is that you can throw it in your bag and go since you can apply with your fingers. You can do so many looks with it from soft and bright and sheer to sultry and smokey. The lighter colors are beautiful highlighters and especially in the inner tear duct. I have even worn as a light shimmery wash on the lid. One, two, three out the door! The possibilities are endless.
The only downfall is the price...$65. Eeek.
Overall I am very very pleased with this, I know I will get TONS of use out of this.
Have you picked this up? Are you planning to? Let me know!
