I can hardly contain myself with the excitement of Chanel's new long wearing cream shadows in the Fall 2011 campaign (to be released shortly at Chanel counters everywhere!)
these creamy shadows are loaded with pigments and shimmer, more so than typical powder shadow! They have a gel-based formula that also allows for use as an eyeliner!
look how the colors are so bold, yet blendable at the same time
Busting your piggy bank at $36 each, I recommend going for the dark "Mirifique"
and using it as an eyeliner and as the dark smoky shadow in the outer corner of the eye
and a light shade for blending to the brow bone
such as "Fantasme" (the almost white shade you see above)
If you are going to treat yourself to just one shade, run to the counter now and grab "Illusoire" which will be the popular and fastest selling for sure! Its a gorgeous shimmery plum!
Typically a cream shadow blends best with your fingertips, but a concealer brush can also be helpful for guiding shadow into creases and near the lash line, The product comes with a travel eyeliner brush, so application on the lash line is covered!
