Every year I buy myself a luxury beauty item during holiday shopping. This year, I picked up the limited edition Chanel palette: Les Regards De Chanel. The palette includes three eye shadows, two brow shadows and an eyeliner. The shadows are finely milled, and the pigment rocks. I had a hard time getting it to wash off my arm after I swatched it! The brow shadows double just fine as eye shadows, which is nice if you like a matte look.
The shades in this set are perfect for a neutral look, whether that be for day or evening,. I particularly love the taupe eye shadow shade. Below are pictures of the Chanel palette and swatches.
The photo on the left is taken without flash, right is with flash. Notice how that really changes the appearance. I think the version without flash is more brown than the shades really are, while the flash makes everything more gray/taupe than they are. Left to right/top to bottom: Taupe shadow, brown shadow, eyeliner, eye highlighter shadow, brown brow shadow, lighter brown brow shadow.
Here is Chanel’s photo of the palette. Things look more gray/taupe here, but I think they are not really quite as taupe as they appear except for the taupe shadow in the upper left corner and the highlighter shade. Still, this is pretty true to color.
Chanel, Les regards De Chanel Swatches. Shown in the same order as in the palette. These are pretty true to color.
You can find Chanel at Nordstrom and at Chanel stores.
