Chanel Eye Essentials Collection

Chanel created a new Eye Essentials collection which is already available. It is described as:  “An expertly harmonized, ultra-wearable eye makeup collection creates a range of subtle-to-sophisticated effects.”

Collection includes:

Ombre Essentielle $28.5

A range of complementary matte eyeshadow shades impart soft, perfectly blendable colour:

  • Vanilla, a light beige;
  • Lily, a pastel pink;
  • Heather Rose, a dusty pink;
  • Slate, a soft khaki-grey;
  • Deep Taupe, a dark brown;
  • Mahogany, an intense chestnut.


Now, in a single stroke, CHANEL sets a new standard in mascara with a formula that does it all. A sophisticated formula and unique brush design combine to lengthen, plump and curl, delivering lush, long-wearing colour so precisely that each lash, even the finest, is perfectly defined and separated.

LE CRAYON SOURCILS Precision Brow Definer, $28

Four natural shades of LE CRAYON SOURCILS Precision Brow Definer:

  • Blond Clair, a deep flaxen gold;
  • Taupe, a honeyed brown;
  • Soft Brown, a muted chestnut;
  • Cendre Noir, an ebony brown

LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Definer, $ 28

Eyes become the focus when rimmed with a precise line or smudged stroke of LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Definer in:

  • Violet Smoke, a deep purple;
  • Coffee Bean, a dark sienna;
  • Black.

LE CRAYON KHÔL Intense Eye Pencil, $ 27

Achieve an instant eye-brightening effect by tracing the inner rim of the lower lashline with LE CRAYON KHÔL Intense Eye Pencil in Blanc, a soft white.

ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen, $ 40

Complete a flawless eye makeup look by lightly concealing imperfections and correcting the appearance of undereye circles with ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen in Beige Rose.

It’s a beautiful collection and I am sure that every woman can find something for herself! I would really love to try those matte shadows and brow pencil in Taupe. And what about you?

    I have both Lily and Vanilla. Although the shades are described as matte, there is nothing flat or dry looking about them. They are typically Chanel: creamy, smooth, and easily blended. Used as all over base colors or used on their own, Lily and Vanilla are delicate, elegant, and refined. Vanilla is a warm, creamy beige and Lily is a soft warm pink. Delicious!

      Hi Eileen.
      I have to say that I like single Chanel eye shadows much than their other shadows and now I am really into matte shadows so those sound amazing to me!
