Splash: Chanel Ombre D'Eau Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow

Chanel Ombre D'Eau Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow (Splash) - Review/Swatches

A quick and easy alternative to powder eyeshadow, this fluid formula glides on for a long-lasting, lightweight veil of shimmering colour. Bi-phase liquid powder shakes to combine for subtle-to-intense shading, with stay-fresh, crease-resistant results.

Released with the Les Tentations De Chanel Holiday 2010 collection, Splash is a limited edition shade - as are I think most of the shades released with this collection.   Chanel's fluid iridescent shadows are biphase eyeshadows.  eeis, as described earlier, a biphase eyeshadow.   It comes in a glass bottle, a clear liquid on top and the pigments usually settled towards the lower half of the bottle.  Shake the bottle to mix the two portions.

The applicator is a supersoft doe-foot wand.  Use it to apply directly on to eyelids or transfer on hand and use a brush or fingers to apply.  Just remember to shake the bottle before use.

Instructions on the Chanel site:  Shake prior to use. Using built-in applicator, apply a small amount to the eyelid, lashline to crease. Using shadow/concealer brush and/or fingertips, gently blend for a delicate iridescent finish. Use in place of shadow base, if desired, for an intense result. Use to highlight the inner corner of the eye.

I have read this colour described as "pewter."  It seems like a brownish-greyish shade to me, with a sheen to it (not shimmer or glitter).  It leans to the subtle side despite the sheen, subtle and I find it quite usable both in the day or at night.  Under artificial lighting, the sheen is more obvious.

Here's a look tried using this eyeshadow - used it all over my eyelid and lined near the upper lashline with a black liquid liner.

There are five shades available at the Chanel counter at Bangalore:

Forgot the first one :D
Torrent - Khaki
Source - Brown
Splash - greyish brown
Glacier - Pale Blue
While not waterproof, the eyeshadow stays on a really long time without creasing.  This is my go-to eyeshadow for most days since it is easy and fast to apply and is quite a neutral colour.   Unfortunately, it is a limited edition shade, and I do hope Chanel decides to repromote this gorgeous beauty some time.

  20. Rads! You are NOT too dark for browns, really. I'm NW45 and my go-to colours are always gold-ish browns. Try using a good base like Painterly (it's too light for me but I use it anyway because it makes my shadows pop) or Constructivist. A beautiful brown shade can give you the "my eyes but better" look.

  21. Oh and if you have MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish Natural powder - you can use that with a small but fluffy blending brush and blend it at the edges of your eyeshadow to soften the harsh edges - makes your shadows look soft and very natural.

  22. Thanks Fieran....golden browns would probably work for me..but I do feel am too dark for the kind of soft matte browns people go gaga over. Will definitely try the powder blending thing next time..and have to have to have to buy a paint pot..is like a must-have that I have been putting off buying :D
