Chanel Ombre Essentielle – 417 Beige Lame

By Get Lippie

I admit, I wasn’t all that taken with the Chanel Christmas collection this year, it just didn’t speak to me.  But, I did have to pick up this eyeshadow single, when I was in Debenhams recently. Packaged with Chanel’s usual attention to detail, the eyeshadow single comes in a little velvet pouch:

So, what colour is it?  Well, for all of you who think I live in taupe, I have a little surprise for you – this one is beige:

 So far, so dull.  What I like about Chanel though, is that their neutrals come with a bit of an edge, and this shade caught my eye in store because it’s packed full of glorious – and beautiful – microglitter (cue terrible photos):

Somehow, I just can’t capture the glory of this eyeshadow on camera, which is infuriating.  Whilst the colour isn’t that unique, it’s something I’ll get a lot of use out of, as it’s a great – slightly warm – beige shade, perfect for when you’re getting ready in a rush.

Heree you can see it swatched dry on the right, and over primer on the right.

What have you picked up from the Christmas collections?
