CHANEL Ombre D'eau


I am lazy with my eyeshadow. I am all for cosmetics being fuss free and quick to apply. Thus, 75% of the time I reach for liquid shadows.




I adore these shadows so much so that I have abandoned almost all other liquid shadows in favour of Chanel's offering.



Ombre D'Eau is a bi-phase liquid shadow which basically means that you have to shake it like a cocktail before application.

I find them to be long lasting as they sit without creasing for about 10 hours without a shadow base. They apply smoothly, they literally glide on my old lids as effortlessly as silk.

These are shimmery shadows, so you matte fiends may choose to look away before you reach the swatches below. You can use these to create a subtle wash of colour by applying and blending with your fingers or you can go bold by applying a thicker layer.

These don't let me down on the lasting power front neither. They are pretty much budge proof all day long. No creasing nor smudging here.

Chanel's iconic packaging incorporates a 6ml frosted glass vial that is utterly vanity friendly.

For the Swatch watchers:

On the left we have "Torrent" #100. A gorgeous khaki shade with flecks of bronzey gold that catch the light oh so nicely.

In the middle is "Sand" #60 . My most used shade. Neutral shimmring taupey gold. It goes with everything!

To the right is "Source" #40. A pretty pink that I am not mad about but use frequently as a base.

I highly recommend these. They are up there with the rest of the starts when it comes to ultimate lazy days beauty.

These are availble in all the usual department stores for
I bought mine at Duty Free.
