CHANEL Ombre Essentielle #89 Twilight (L’Ame d’un Regard LE) Review and Swatch
March 19, 2011 3 Comments
This eyeshadow is a part of Chanel L’Ame d’un Regard Collection.
It is the same size as all other Chanel mono eyeshadows (2 gr) and it retails for 26,5 euros.
Please note that I have only tested this eyeshadow at the counter so I won’t comment on how longwearing it is.
Chanel Ombre Essentielle eyeshadows are, unlike the quads (euro version), very silky and they apply evenly.
Twilight is a baby pink shade with silvery shimmer. The pigmentation is very good, but since the colour itself is light and complimentary to my skintone, it doesn’t show as good as it should on the swatch.
The shade Twilight is very similar to Urban Decay Sphynx (from Book of Shadows vol.2), but Sphynx has a lot of multicoloured chunky glitter. Chanel #89 Twilight is more subtle and the shimmer simply „melts“ into the colour, so I don’t believe that there would be a shimmer fallout. I’d say that Twilight is definitely the more wearable version of Sphynx.
