This palette, actually this collection, has been on my watch list for quite some time before finding out that it’s being released here as a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale exclusive. I’m over the top happy and I’m not disappointed in the colors and texture.
According to Nordstrom…
From classic ivory to rich brown, the shades of the essential eyeshadow compact offer unlimited looks of elegance. The smudge-proof, dermatologist-tested formula can be applied dry for subtle shading or dampened for more intense color, with long-wearing results even in extreme climates.
Packaging| Packaged in typical Chanel fashion. Black box with gold bottom trim. Palette itself has its own suede case with the Chanel logo embossed. The product itself are housed in round pans much like the Chanel quads sold in Europe or Asia.
Color and Texture | This palette is a neutral lovers dream. Perfect blend of colors to achieve a “no makeup” makeup to a smokey brown look. It is sheerer compared to the square pan formula but it doesn’t mean that you can’t build up on color. Blending is not a problem with this one.
