Chanel Ombre Essentielle in Beige Lamé #417


I am still not sure whether Beige Lamé was a good buy for me.  It's a beautiful neutral colour, quite fineky milled, with multicoloured sparkles through it.  The problem is not in the sparkles, which actually look quite beautiful.  It's the base colour - when I wear it, I don't really much of anything as it's nearly the same as my skin colour.  I was hoping for it to be a bit darker - instead I just use it on days when I just want a sheer wash for the eyes.

For this reason there's no swatch for this eyeshadow - I'll leave you with a close-up instead.


  1. Beautiful photos. I skipped this one personally - I'm all for understated shadows for a sheer wash on the lid days, but not for Chanel prices haha!

  2. I know, this was a bit of an impulse buy...
