Chanel - Ombres Perlees De Chanel Eyeshadow Palette
I had been after this palette for a while, so I was very glad when I finally got my mitts on it. The colour selection to me seems to be neutral and smoky, there aren't masses of looks that can be done with the colour selection, but they are good staple colours.
I have never had Chanel eyeshadows before, so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of quality. I have found that they are very smooth and buttery, so lovely in texture! In terms of colour pay off some of the shades are better than others, I found the lightest colour and purple were hardest to work with, They weren't as pigmented as the others so they took a little more work in terms of pay off and blending.
The packaging is very sturdy and has a great mirror in the compact as it's really quite big, so it's a useful palette for travel. It comes with 2 double ended applicators, 3 sponge heads and a brush head, though it would have been useful to have more brush heads rather than those annoying sponges! But at least there is one brush!
Overall, it is a good palette, I love the colours though some colours work better than others. However for the quantity and quality I think it is overpriced.
