Chanel Brow Duo and Eyeshadow Newness

Makeup

In case you missed it, Chanel has a new eyebrow kit, La Palette Sourcils Brow Wax and Brow Powder Duo. From the three shades available, I chose Medium.

The Brow Duo contains wax and the brow powder along with four tiny tools:

  • tweezers
  • spoolie
  • eyebrow brush
  • applicator

Chanel Brow Wax and Brow Powder Duo

Featuring mineral pigments, the wax is creamy and lighter in colour than the powder. If you just wanted to tame your brows and fill them in lightly, the wax can be used alone.

But if you prefer the full Monty, then the instructions indicate using the wax first then the powder. When I first got this I was applying the powder first and then the wax which can be done as well. No matter how you decide to apply the wax and powder, I’ve found it helpful to brush through the brows to ensure everything is blended.

I also like the fact that even if you dampen the eyebrow brush before dipping into the powder, it doesn’t make the powder clump or become difficult to pick up when you return to use the powder the next day as an example. That’s been my experience with other eyebrow powders so I figured it’s important to point that out.

While I couldn’t speak to the effect on oily skin, this eyebrow wax and powder has excellent lasting power and doesn’t budge, fade or go grey during wear time.

The size of the tools in this brow wax and powder duo gave me an excuse to try Chanel’s dual-ended brow brush.

Made of synthetic fibres, this feels very good and weighty in the hand. I also appreciate that both ends have caps making it easier and cleaner to store or transport. It does a good job of picking up the brow powder and applying it and I love how well the spoolie works to groom my brows.

Chanel Ombre Première Laque Longwear Liquid Eyeshadow 26 Quartz Rose is also an entirely new addition to Chanel’s eyeshadow line-up. One of the gems of the Spring-Summer 2020 Collection, Quartz Rose is a longwear liquid eyeshadow that delivers quite a pigment punch and leaves a metallic finish.

With this liquid eyeshadow, all you need is a very tiny amount. Featuring a smooth formula, be aware that it dries quickly and I’d say using a brush is far better than your fingers, although you could swipe it on with the wand after wiping away any excess.

Chanel longwear liquid eyeshadow comes in four other tempting shades and the concept reminds me of Armani’s Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow.

You can switch up the way you wear this eyeshadow but I have to say I prefer it when it’s applied as a thin layer because after it dries, the finish is beautiful.

Thankfully, the brow powder duo and the longwear eyeshadow are permanent so you have plenty of time to decide if it’s for you and I hope this helps.

    Right! Just as I realised I should have gotten the Rosy Drops it’s now sold out. You’re so welcome:)

    And now I’m convinced I need Quartz Rose in addition to the Rosy Drops! That looks gorgeous and I like liquid/cream shadows for a simple wash of color. Also, that nail polish is gorgeous on you. Thanks for the reviews!
