Christmas Stocking Filler 2. Ombres Matelassees De Chanel, Charming……………. If There’s One Thing!
Hope you’re all having a great week. So Christmas gifts can be a daunting thing. What to buy and for whom! Where makeup is concerned, it can be a minefield picking the right colours for people and keeping them very happy at the same time. Well! I just found the perfect eye palette for everyone. Seriously you cannot go wrong with these hues at all.
Chanel once again, pull the show stopping Nuit Infinie holiday collection out of the bag for Christmas and i seriously didn’t believe they could top the Harmonie Du Soir Eyeshadow Palette from last years Eclats du Soir holiday collection; but. oh! yes they did.
This 5 eyeshadow palette contains very universal neutral shades for everyday/evening wear. All are buttery soft and very finely milled, as you would expect. They have the distinctive Chanel quilt pattern stamped onto each colour.
The shades are from left; satin pale beige (highlighter); matte light brown; shimmering golden copper brown (the most beautiful shade of all); dark satin brown and finally, an unusual matte purple grey shade. All are very pigmented. There are many combinations of these colours to pick and both the dark brown and purple/grey can be used as socket colours and eyeliners or for a smokey eye effect.
They blend very easily and i like the fact that there are some matte shades which are great for my, more mature eyes. I do; however, just adore the golden copper shade which i use over the whole lid. As you can see below, i am very fond of the light beige, golden copper and the purple/grey shades. They look gorgeous together and the colours wear very well the whole day. On a more personal note, i would have preferred more shimmery shades for a holiday palette but i guess this one makes a great overall palette and is more suitable for a wider range of people.
This is going to make a great gift as it is ideal for travelling with as well as being incredibly universal, costs £48.00; however, money well spent in my opinion. Well done Chanel for producing a great all rounder. Going! Going! Gone and it will be very soon!
