Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in 101 Gri-Gri


Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in 101 Gestlogist Gri-Gri is limited edition with the Chanel Fall 2013 collection, Superstition.  It is described by Chanel as a metallic taupe.


In the pan it looks like a very silvery gray.  Swatched it takes on a much more purple/brown tone.  I think it definitely is a taupe.  It has a silver shimmer running through it and if you apply it wet, it definitely looks more metallic.



The texture was incredibly soft and had great pigmentation.  

I found that on the eye, much like the Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow in Platinum, it tended to look almost wet after a while.  When it started looking like that, I knew it was only a matter of time before it started creasing, but ... it never did crease on me, even after 10 hours of wear.




Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in 101 Gestlogist Gri-Gri contains 1.6 grams of product and is Limited Edition.  It retails for $28.50 wherever Chanel is sold.  I bought mine at Nordstrom.  As of the writing of this review, it is still available at most online retailers.

Overall:  7/10
