Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eye Shadow 41 Amethyst : Photos, Review, Swatch & EOTD

I have been postponing this review for so many months now and finally I got some time to do an EOTD with one of my favorite purple eye shadows :) You must be knowing that I have a handful of purple eye shadows with me and I will be soon doing a collective post here. If you are a purple lover like me then keep watching this space for the post. Though I have many purples with me I had really high expectations with the Chanel one, let's see whether it impressed me or not !

Description

The Chanel Soft Touch Eye Shadow comes in the classic black packaging with the Chanel symbol of two Cs engraved on it. This comes kept inside a velvet pouch to give that luxury touch ! On opening I was surprised to see a really tiny eye shadow with a small applicator and a mirror too. The applicator takes in a lot of product so I don't touch it at all. The mirror definitely comes handy. Coming to the shade Amethyst - it is a deep purple shade with some sheen to it that makes it look like a duo chrome. I love the finish of this eye shadow. It is a dream to apply and blend the eye shadow ! However, I was not very happy with the color pay off, especially if I am wearing it during the later half of the day. The shade is apt for morning wear but I hardly use colors on my lids in the day time !!

Likes
  • The shade is a pretty purple color with a sheen to it.
  • Comes packed neatly in a velvet pouch.
  • Comes with a mirror and an applicator.
  • It is easy to apply and blend this eye shadow.
  • Does not crease at all and stays the way it was put.
  • Under sunlight it beams like a duochrome !
  • The shade is a subtle purple thus makes it wearable even during the day time.

Dislikes
  • I feel the color pay off is not great and I don't think the shade will show up on my skin without a base !
  • The applicator is of no use.

Verdict

The eye shadow as such has a great formula and I love it for that along with the added advantage of being a beautiful purple shade with a subtle sheen. The shade however looks more intense in the pan than while worn on the lids [especially without a base !] Only with a minimum of 2 coats the color starts showing on my lids which disappointed me a bit ! I can't really wear this without a base which makes it a shade that is more suitable for lighter skin tones !!

  4. Aarthi, if I was buying something from Chanel it would either be a blush or a lipstick. An eyeshadow purchase would make me guilty :P You have done justice to it though. But seriously how many purples do you have?! ;)
