Chanel Fall Makeup Collection: Ombre Essential Eyeshadow



Chanel Ombre Essential eyeshadows have the softest, smoothest texture and always make me wonder why I don't just stick with them (the answer is that we, beauty ninjas, are both brave and reckless when it comes to new products. We just can't be satisfied with one brand).

There are two new colors for fall, Le Bronze, which you see here, and Bois Bleu, a gorgeous but not really necessary dark teal (unless you don't have any teal eyeshadows in your stash, which makes it as good a reason as any to get one. You'd probably use it a handful of times a year and never hit the pan for the rest of your life).

None of the official color swatches of Le Bronze (on Chanel web site and the other stores selling it) is doing it justice. It's a perfectly balanced brown, not too warm, described as "metallic", but it's not disco in any way. The shimmer is low key and elegant, perfectly suited for day time, and while it's intended for fall, I'm wearing it now, paired with the lightest gold color from my old Chanel Gold Rush compact.

Available from your local Chanel counter, Nordstrom.com and Chanel.com, which is where I bought mine. $28.50
