This is the first of a series from Chanel Ombre Essentialle Soft Touch Single Eyeshadows. I own quite a number of eyeshadows from this range. Overall, I’ve found that texture of all of these is very soft. There is a range of about three categories of textures: matte, shimmer and duochrome.
Overall, this features two from the permanent line, Lavande (shimmer) and Amethyst (duochrome), and one limited edition shade, Magic Night (duochrome, but subtly so). Lavande is a soft lavendar, appropriate to use as a mid-tone lid shade. (All pictures are click-able for a closer view)
The second is the duochrome Amethyst, one of my favorite. This is absolutely stunning, with a lot of dimension.
Finally, here is a limited edition Magic Night, which is a brown infused with some purple. It looks quite brown in the pan, but you can from the swatch below there is a deep purple cast once applied.
Here’s an effort to swatch all three, so that you can see how they look applied to the skin. I applied these a bit unevenly, so that you can see how they look sheerly applied and some areas with more dense application:
