I guess this could make a great holiday gift. But to be perfectly honest (if you are anything like me), once I got my paws on this, no one could pry this out of my hands. Chantecaille ‘The Diamonds’ Eyeshadow Palette marries luxury, festivity, quality and function all so very well. I realize I am gushing over a trio of eyeshadows but it really is that good.
These shimmer shadows look as if they would be gritty. But they are actually velvet soft with great pigmentation. The shades are wearable and perfect for the neutral eye I always crave. For a more intense look, these can be applied wet. While they are very shimmery, the shades still manage to be sophisticated. From left to right, Champagne Diamond is a rosy silver. Onyx Diamond, not as dark as I expected, is a chocolate. Cognac Diamond is a brown sugar with a slight warmth.
I wish I could tell you about the applicator, but I managed to immediately lose it. The case is smooth despite the textured look. It closes securely. And it size makes it very travel friendly. Each pot is generously sized (0.5 oz) and the shape is ideal for using shadow brushes.
This would thrill any beauty lover. I challenge you to buy it and try to give it away. I bet you won’t be able to part with it either! Available at Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman Marcus, Net-A-Porter and Bergdorfs.
