Chanel Eyeshadow Duo in Noir-Ivoire ($42/ Ombre Contraste Duo #27) is a new permanent shade released with Holiday 2011. Chanel’s duo series offers a range of nice basics–typically a matte paired with a very softly sheeny shimmer light yellow-ivory shade.  This lighter shade is far more wearable than Chanel Blazing Gold (reviewed here) which was released at the same time.

 As you would expect from this series, the shades are rich, pigmented and are appropriate for day or night. Everyone needs a nice black eyeshadow or two, this one is excellent quality.  The ivory shade has a slight yellow cast, which is light enough to work as a versatile neutral.  The combination comes with two very small brushes–one bristled, the other sponge.

The easiest way to wear the combination is to use the black as a liner, and the yellow-beige as an overall lid wash.  


 Here, Liz did her variation by wearing the ivory-shade as a lid wash, and then used the black in the crease to add depth:

Overall, Chanel Eyeshadow in Noir Ivoire is a beautiful basic neutral palette.  It’s foolproof, formulated to look beautiful and is very high quality. Recommended.

  1. I’d love to know how Liz shades her crease because I’m terrible at it. I was waiting for a review of this product on your site for ages. It was the first thing I bought in the collection, and I knew I wanted to use the black shade as more then just a liner shade. Thank you so much for your site. It’s amazing!

  2. Looks good! I think that spring eyeshadows (first and last one) will do the same.

  3. I’d love to know if you’ve ever tried YSL’s duo, “Ombres Duolumières’ in Ivory Beige-Deep Black (#17) ; it’s the same color premise and since i have the YSL i’m wondering if the pigmentation is similar. I found the black very hard to work with in the YSL. Thanks!
