Chanel Spring 2010: Ombre Essentialle Soft Touch Eyeshadows in Sillage and Trace

December 29, 2009

Chanel Spring 2010 includes two new single eyeshadows from the Ombre Essentialle line (Ombre à Paupières Mono Douceur).  These are the Soft Touch Eyeshadows in Sillage and Trace ($28.50 each).  Sillage, which means “vapor trail” or “wake,” is a light shimmery highlight color with rosy bronze tones, with a hint of the mauvish tones that infuse the Kaska Beige quad.  Like some of the other shimmer products in this collection, the light makes this color into a chameleon–it can change quite a bit depending on how the light hits it.

Trace is a deep shimmery mauve-brown.  There is not enough grey in the color to call it a taupe, it is truly more in the brown family.  Of course, it will pair nicely with Sillage.  If you prefer a matte color, Chanel’s single in Beige will do well.

    Oooh. I need both of these shadows. What lovely colors for spring. Such a nice departure from the usually pastel bleh crap I usually see! LOL
