The Été Papillon de Chanel Collection display is gorgeous. Featuring colorful mascaras, Les Vernis, eye shadows and liners, and lip colors, it sings summer. I'll have a Rouge Coco Shine to show you tomorrow.
With a smooth-gliding applicator pen, these Stylo Eyeshadows deliver lightweight, long-wearing color to highlight the lids or precisely line the eyes with gleaming color. There are six gleaming shades, from light and soft to dark and metallic.
Chanel says this eye shadow pen doubles as an eyeliner. The pen will create an iridescent, long-lasting effect. The cooling, water-infused formula should feel good. The specially designed angled tip permits versatile application - whether you want to use it as a shadow or a liner.
- Moon River (platinum)
- Cool Gold (luminous gold)
- Pink Lagoon (fresh pink)
- Jade Shore (tender green)
- Blue Ray (silvery turquoise blue) - a shade that's prominent at Chanel for summer
- Black Stream (silvery black)
All of the Stylo Eyeshadow Fresh Effect Eyeshadow glide onto the skin and blend beautifully. They seem fluid on application. They can be applied lightly for a sheer wash of color or layered for more color oomph.
When you want to use it as an eye shadow, Chanel recommends that you apply to the lids in one stroke for a sheer, halo effect, or build the color with several strokes for more intensity. When you want to use it as a liner, Chanel suggests that you apply it with the tip toward the inner corner of the eye and smooth the color outward along the inner lash line. Under the lower lashes, apply from the outer to inner corner, with the tip turned toward the outer corner of the eye. Does that make sense? I'll just experiment when the Stylo Eyeshadows arrive at counters.
The Été Papillon de Chanel Collection for Summer 2013 just arrived at Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria, so it should be coming to a store near you very soon.
