Chanel Fresh Effect Eyeshadow Stylo………………..07 Moon River.
How are you all? I have gotten a little behind with my writing so i wanted to crack on with this one as this product is limited edition and selling fast.
When Chanel released L’Été de Papillon summer collection recently here, they had a selection of eyeshadow stylo pens as part of the collection.
I had seen other eyeshadow sticks by various makeup companies and they were very nice but i am; as you all know, a huge fan of Chanel and the Moon River stylo looked a very wearable/universal shade and was high on my hit list.
I finally got my hands on one, have now used it a few times and its just fantastic. So easy to apply and quick setting. It goes on in a breeze and is great to wear if you’re in a hurry but still want to apply some makeup to your eyes. It has a lovely cooling effect on the eye like its been in the refrigerator for a couple of hours even though it hasn’t and once set does not budge or crease at all and i have oily eyelids, so that’s some staying power! It also does not fade over the day either.
The colour is a slight metallic pale brown with green/gold shimmers. This has been compared with the Illusion D’Ombre cream eyeshadow in Epatant; however, it is not a taupe like Epatant is and is more on the brown side whereas, Epatant has a green undertone. Moon River goes very well with my blue eyes and is great to wear on its own or with other shades.
I use it by applying all over the lid and then tapering the colour down slightly in the inner corner of the eye. I then apply it under my lower eye lashes with the point of the tip. Great to wear with with a matte darker shade in the socket too.
Sadly, these eyeshadow sticks are all limited edition and selling quite fast. I also like the look of the gold and pink one too and may purchase them before they disappear.
A great idea if you are in a hurry or travel a lot and a lovely universal shade too. Worth the £23.00 in my opinion, even though they are very expensive. Available in 5 other shades including; Cool Gold; Pink Lagoon, Jade Shore, Black Stream and Blue Bay.
Have a great day everyone and i will see you all very soon. 😉
