Chanel Safari Eyeshadow

Black clothes and silvery taupe eyeshadows - I can never get enough of either.

As I was taking a break from studying interest rates and monetary expansion policies, I treated myself with a new eyeshadow... *drum roll please* Chanel Single Eyeshadow in #45 Safari




It's part of their permanent eyeshadow collection and it's a breathtaking smooth silvery taupe. It seemed to be the perfect blend of two of my other favourite eyeshadows, Benefit's Where There's Smoke and Style Snob by MAC (which was sadly Limited Edition).

Super soft consistency and not too shimmery, just the right amount. Here it is swatched (on top) more heavily compared to some other favourites of mine:

I'm so excited to wear this!
