Probably the most popular of the new stylo eyeshadows from the Summer 2013 L'Ete de Papillon de Chanel collection, Moon River (£23) is a beautiful metallic, shimmery, taupe/platinum.
The colour looks different in certain lights so the above photo is with flash and then the corner right is in natural light.
Swatched below and then blended in.
The consistency is very reminiscent of the discontinued Chanel Ombre
D’eau, very wet in feel and providing a cooling sensation to the touch.
It feels creamy and glides onto the lid without sliding around and it
has a quick setting time, so quick in fact that I find it impossible to
blend. Though it applies evenly with one swipe, I find to try and layer
makes it rub off in areas and look patchy. Unfortunately it also shares
the same discomfort I use to experience from some of Chanel Ombre
D’eau's in that it makes my lids feel very tight.
I should say that I have sensitive skin and if you were a fan of the
Chanel Ombre D’eau's you will probably like this.
Unfortunately for me, even if I take
away the discomfort in feel, this is something I regret buying due to the application/inability to
Ultimately a gorgeous colour but not with a formula to match.
I bought this from John Lewis.
