Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Rose Favorite from the Versailles de Chanel Cruise 2012-2013 Makeup Collection
I took my swatch photos in full sun. I used a sponge-tipped applicator to apply it moderately at the top of my arm. My photos were taken in very late afternoon sun.
Rose Favorite is a matte eye shadow. If applied lightly, some women will find it a nice pop of color or even a base shade when combined with other, more neutral shades for a spring look.
The other items in the Versailles Collection are re-promotes. The Chanel boutique told me the Rouge Coco Shine shade is Boy, although I've seen blogs were it was identified as Evasion. Either way, rose pink. The Joues Contraste Powder Blush is Rose Pétale, a blush that's very similar in color to this Rose Favorite eye shadow. Les Vernis in Tendresse is a transparent pastel pink.
You can purchase the Versailles Collection at Chanel boutiques. I purchased mine from Chanel on 57th Street in New York. You can call any Chanel boutique in the United States (or Paris) to order it. I understand that one reader was unable to order from the boutique in Las Vegas because she had not previously been a customer. Although I have ordered from New York in the past, I was not asked the question when I ordered the two new pieces from this collection.
