Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review

Yeah, this is a late review. I actually wasn't even going to bother reviewing the Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette, but I figured... I'm getting rid of it soon, let's get it out there.




While these shades swatch nicely, I cannot get them to stay on my lids for the life of me. When I used the shades, I would pat them on with the MAC 239. I also was using primer potion. Faded and creased within a few hours. I can't say I'll ever reach for it again. Perhaps when used wet, or layered over another shade (with a different finish) one would have better results.

While the shades are beautiful in every single way possible, the palette was just such a disappointment. I absolutely ADORE Chanel eyeshadows, especially the quads. This palette just left me feeling unfulfilled.

When the Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette launched for Spring 2011 it retailed for $65. It was limited edition, so I'm not sure of the availability anymore, but you can check your counters if you'd like to purchase this item to test it out for yourself.

Wow, I'm really shocked that their lasting power isn't all that good even with a primer. I mean, it's Chanel, for crying out loud :/ You'd think the quality would be so much better with regard to lasting power. Yikes. I do agree, though, that the colors are super pretty. Man, that's just such a shame :/

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one. I checked a couple of blogs to see if anyone else had similar problems and I couldn't find a bad review =\

Sorry you didn't like it. I wanted one but it was sold out at local counters pretty quickly. The swatches look beautiful at various blogs.
