Chanel Ombres Perlées de Chanel - Spring 2010 - Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches

 Chanel Ombres Perlées de Chanel.

Chanel debuts Ombres Perlées de Chanel, a limited edition quint eyeshadow palette, for their Spring 2011 collection, Collection les Perles de Chanel.  Every picture of Coco, she is dripping not with diamonds but with pearls.  They have become synonymous with what is iconic Chanel.  The makeup from this collection captures that glowing luminescence that radiates from pearls. 

The eyeshadows in this quint are all of a pearl luster finish.  The texture is soft, creamy and blendable.  All the shades aren't just straight up frosts or shimmers.  Each carries a soft iridescence in blue, pink, violet, gold to add depth to the shade and draw glow where applied.  I am highly impressed overall with the quality of this palette so far.  It definitely stands up better than many of my recent Chanel quad purchases, especially the baked round eyeshadows.  I can't wait to play with this more.

We will feature another post with dupes of the shades from this palette, but I have to say that this is the first Chanel product in a long time that has gotten me excited.  More dish when I'm able to do a full review! But so far, very good!
