Chanel Liquid Eyeliner in Plum and Platine Swatches

November 11, 2012

While picking up a watch repair at the Chanel boutique in San Francisco last week, I picked up two Chanel Liquid Eyeliner in Plum and Platine. These were both released in Europe this past summer, although I had to leave Paris before either arrived on counters.  Both use the traditional Chanel packaging, with the brush-tip that goes into the tiny pot of color at the bottom.

 Of the two, Platine was a delightful surprise–it is shimmery, high-shine and complex with multi-colored micro sparkles–so pretty.

I tried to capture the color of Platine as I headed out the door for a flight–I’m not entirely sure I was able to do fully do so.

Both are beautiful–richly pigmented. Well done.

    WOW those are both GORGEOUS! Don’t know how big of a fan I would be of that applicator but I would certainly be willing to find out!

    After I saw your picture on twitter I ran out to Nordstrom and got both of these. Platine is stunning and the other is just beautiful. And yes, they are easy to apply.

    Goregus! Do you have new Illusion D’Ombre? I’ve seen them in European parfumeries long ago and they are very dupeable by L’oreal Color Infailable. Are we buying Le Volume de Chanel?

    Oh they are both lovely! The colour of Platine seems to be amazingly complex, and Plum looks so rich and deep!
    Is Platine completely opaque though? The coverage seems quite irregular.

    I like Plum. I am into playing with darker eyeliners that have a twist of color for this season.

    Is “plum” the same as “purple” on the Neiman Marcus website? I want to order the plum, but they just have one called “purple” on their site. Are they the same? Thanks.

      Yes, the liner is promoted as “plum,” but the box says “purple.”
