CHANEL Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Beige Lame and Blazing Gold (Holiday 2011) Review and Swatch
December 3, 2011 4 Comments
Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50) is available in two shades. You should note that both shades look better on the swatch picture than in the real life. I swatched them as I usually swatch the powdery products – with my fingers. These are definitely the most disappointing items in the collection.
Blazing Gold is a shimmering gold. The texture is extremely hard and on the skin it looks like very gritty. It does not apply smoothly – you can see a particles of an eyeshadow powder.
Beige Lame is a shimmering dark beige – like a coffee with a lot of milk. The shimmer looks big, but once applied, it is almost invisible. This would be the perfect neutral colour if it weren’t for the fact that its quality is bad. I had to do a heavy swatch in order to show the colour, but the texture of this eyeshadow is horrible – it is so hard and difficult to apply.
