Yeah, this is a late review. I actually wasn’t even going to bother reviewing the Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette, but I figured… I’m getting rid of it soon, let’s get it out there.
While these shades swatch nicely, I cannot get them to stay on my lids for the life of me. When I used the shades, I would pat them on with the MAC 239. I also was using primer potion. Faded and creased within a few hours. I can’t say I’ll ever reach for it again. Perhaps when used wet, or layered over another shade (with a different finish) one would have better results.
While the shades are beautiful in every single way possible, the palette was just such a disappointment. I absolutely ADORE Chanel eyeshadows, especially the quads. This palette just left me feeling unfulfilled.
When the Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette launched for Spring 2011 it retailed for $65. It was limited edition, so I’m not sure of the availability anymore, but you can check your counters if you’d like to purchase this item to test it out for yourself.
