Today I wanted to share with you my latest Chanel 'loves'. This dynamic duo is called Ombres Contraste Duo (#10 Gris-Subtil) and Stylo Yeux waterproof eyeliner in #35 (Gris).
As with all Chanel eyeshadows, you get the same silky texture and long wearing formula. As names imply, these are grey-ish tones with some purple hints. I was pleasantly surprised by the color of eyeliner: it is NOT your everyday grey pencil...In fact, it somehow reminds me of Chanel's sold out Paradoxal nailpolish--with purplish specks.
Finally, let me show you a quick look that I sported today for a dinner with some friends. In fact, I wore the same look during the day, but added eyeliner for the evening. You can see that eyeliner comes out as a beautiful color. You can definitely use this palette for a smoky look with some modern twist. I do love this palette, but if you are deciding between these eyeshadows or eyeliner: Go with the eyeliner Gris (#35). It is a truly unique grey color!

- beautiful colors
- silky and long lasting
- price: $28 for eyeliner and $42 for eyeshadows
- I still like the texture of my Dior eyeshadows more than Chanel's.
- I threw out eyeshadow sponges as their quality is lacking for me (Dior's are better imho).
