Chanel: Eye Gloss Autumn 2009

Have you ever wanted something really beautiful but totally impractical? Like that pair of stilettos you can barely walk 2 blocks in. Well such is the case with Chanel's latest fall offering - Eye Gloss Luminous Cream Quadra Eyeshadow.

The iconic black, double C case opens to reveal 4 shades of gloss: a shimmery pearly white, a light gold shimmer, a black creme and a dark red "rouge noir" creme. All photos taken in natural light on NC 35-42 skin.

The shimmery white and gold glosses when swatched are pigmented but on the sheerer side. The black and red glosses are incredibly pigmented. All glosses have a thicker texture on account of the pigmentation, but are not sticky.

Because these are glosses, not cream shadows or paints, these will not set and therefore will smudge and crease.

So why buy these? If you're a junkie like me and you want to experiment with different textures and products, you might like these. People with shallow eye creases, or flat eyelids will probably also have better luck with this type of product as the skin folds on the eyelid will interfere less with the product as it sits on the skin.

Hot, wet editorial eyes here we come!
