If you've ready LLA for awhile now you'll know that I'm not one to sport eye shadow regularly (you'll also know that I talk about my dog an unhealthy amount, that I am addicted to coffee and have never met a neutral nail polish shade that I didn't like) but mostly that with the exception of mascara and concealer, I'm not a huge eye makeup kinda gal.
Which is why I have no excuse as to how this purchase came about but the Ombres Matelassées de CHANEL Eyeshadow Palette in Charming is absolutely stunning. It makes me want to be a better person eye shadow wearer. I couldn't wait to get home and pick up the neglected MAC 217s and use this. Which is my excuse for the fact that it was used before being photographed - beauty blogging fail! As you would expect from Chanel, the packaging is beautiful and it comes complete with a handy large mirror. Palettes are definitely having a moment right now throughout all of the Christmas collections. I love that they are so easy to use, you already know that the shades will work well together. This one had my name all over it, neutral mostly matte shades with a touch of iridescence that are right up my street.
The darkened brown shade blended through the crease with the golden brown all over the lid will be my subtle smokey eye look for tonight. If it wasn't completely sold out the Bobbi Brown Warm Smokey Eye palette would be mine now too! I think I'm losing the run of myself here, I'll be a fully fledged eye shadow wearer yet!
