New In – Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow
I already mentioned this new item in my makeup stash here, in my June Favorites. Even though I only had this new eyeshadow in stick form a few days at the point of filming this video, I already knew how much I would love it.
I had heard about those sticks (or well, I saw them in the campaign) but had admittedly not paid attention to them until the very day I saw the stick in action on my friend Julia. All that golden glitter and glimmer just looked so lovely (and there is a LOT of glitter going on, so if you do not like this – you better stay away). I just had to ask her right away which product she had used. So she told me about this cool stick from Chanel, which not just looks lovely, but also feels amazing.
The clue about the Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow is, that it comes with a cooling, water-infused formula – when applying, the stick feels like liquid and really cold on your skin. Definitely a feeling one has to get used to (it feels like the stick comes straight from the fridge) but definitely something I look forward to, know that I know what awaits me.
The eyeshadow sticks are exclusively part of the L’ÉTÉ PAPILLON DE CHANEL Collection and available in six different colors. I have a thing for gold and I wanted to try a more subtle color first so I also went for “Cool Gold”. However I also got my eyes on the color “Jade Shore” (amazing off-green, which I think will look great with my eye color) and the black one (glittery smokey eyes, hellooooo).
The eyeshadow is easily applied and with the stick form I love to use it more for a smokey eye/eyeliner instead of applying it all-over the lid. You are able to smudge it but let me warn you: you better be quick or it dries so that smudging will not be possible anymore (and too much rubbing will just lead to the fact that the color dissolves and just leaves a LOT of glitter behind). I tried to catch the eyeshadow on my eyes but with my bangs (and quite dry eyes at the point of my picture taking attempts) there is not that much you can see. But I still hope you can get somewhat of an impression.
I was easily able to still get the sticks online two weeks ago and I think they are not totally sold out yet. Unfortunately I do not have any information about if they will go over into the standard collection or were a one time off (it would be such a shame) so you better head out to your local Chanel counter and try them 🙂
