Fall 2013 Makeup Collection

Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadows - Chanel-speak for single eyeshadows - Gri-Gri and Hasard are part of newly released Chanel fall 2013 makeup collectionGri-Gri is a metallic taupe while Hasard is a soft matte lavender.   Generally, I find the Chanel single eyeshadows some of the products that the brand offers, but both these eyeshadows are slightly different from what I have tried/bought so far.  Gri-Gri is a metallic, shimmery shade that I think does better over a base of some kind.  The texture is fine and the formula feels smooth, but I just amn't a huge fan of shimmery, metallic textures - that's just my personal preference.  Hasard is a sheer-ish matte lavender that feels slightly powdery going on, but it's easy to blend and shows up well on my skin.  Scroll on for photos, swatches, and more.

Of the two single eyeshadows from the Chanel Fall 2013, my unlikely favorite is Hasard.  I like matte shades that are subtle/neutral, and Hasard definitely falls into that category.  It does feel a little sheer going on, but the color shows up well enough on my skin.  I don't know if I would call this a must-have, but I do see myself using this a lot, at least right now when it's new :P   Gri-Gri, the metallic taupe, is a sheer-metallic shade, sort of shimmery but very finely textured.  Used on it's own, it would be lovely as a sheer wash of color.  I like to use it layered over a matte shadow (or a liner) to add a bit of light to the eye.  I am not too keen on metallics, so I am not too enthusiastic about Gri-Gri, but that's just me.  I am not sure if these are colors that would appeal to every one, but if you like soft, subtle shades, do give these a try.

UPDATE:  Here's my non-expert view on which of these two colors might work for you:   If you are darker skin toned like I am, Hasard would contrast nicely with your skin tone.  Gri-Gri would look good too, but imo, only over another base.  Of course, it also depends on how much a metallic shiny color like this appeals to you but you can make it work.  Lighter skin tones, I think Gri-Gri would look lovely on you, with or without another base.  Hasard might just be a little too blahh.  Again, this is just my opinion, and I am no expert :)
