Chanel Ombre D'Eau Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow (Splash) - Review/SwatchesA 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.
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:
