Chanel Ombres Contraste Eyeshadow Duo in #70 Rose Majeur

Chanel Rose Majeur eyeshadow duo

One of my favourites from Chanel’s 2014 spring collection Notes de Printemps is the eyeshadow duo in Rose Majeur. This is not a surprise as I’ve been a long time fan of their duos – the colour combinations are always great and the formula is soft and pigmented. This duo is no exception.

Rose Majeur is a combination of beautiful soft pink and dark purple. The peachy-pink shade has a pearl finish, against my fair skin it gives just a flush of colour and it works great as an all-over lid shade. The darker colour is violet-grey, almost matte, but with a subtle satin finish which I prefer over the fully matte formulas as they can look powdery when applied. It’s nicely pigmented and due to the soft buttery formula easy to blend and build up.

The duo is great for a smokey eye, or an everyday look where the darker shade is used as a liner. The staying power is also great, after wearing it for 10 hours with an Urban Decay Primer Potion there was barely any fade out.

Bellow are Chanel #40 Misty-Soft vs #70 Rose Majeur comparison swatches:

Misty-Soft is the warmer one of the duos, light colour is a sparkly lavender while the darker shade is taupe-brown.
