Because of my obsession with the 2013 launch of the Chanel Stylo Eyeshadows (love shown here) I knew sight unseen that I had to own a few of the Chanel Fresh Effect Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 // Nordstrom) shades from the Summer 2015 Collection Mediterranee. Five limited edition shades were released and I picked up three of them in Laurier Rose (rose gold), Olivine (olive green) and Caroube (chocolate bronze).
Like with the previous release the Stylo Eyeshadows are in rounded tube where the product is able to be twisted up or down. The formula is creamy, applies smoothly and easily and feels cool to the skin (almost like you’re applying a gel). I’ve found when applying this product it’s best to directly deposit the color to the lid right from the applicator and then smudge it out with your fingertip for a sheer wash of color which is buildable and can be worn alone or with a shadow on top. In my experience the Stylo Eyeshadows do not crease or fade at all, even without a secondary primer underneath such as Urban Decay Primer Potion. My lids are incredibly oily, so it’s always impressive to me when a product stays put without help.
The swatches below are done on bare skin (dry, no primer):
In the look below: (EYES) Using a finger Chanel Olivine Stylo Eyeshadow is smudged all over the lid and through the crease.
