Review / Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel

Few days ago, I was organizing my make up and realised that I never shared a couple of palettes that I own -  I thought It would make a nice series  to talk about them on the blog.
As mentioned, these are not new products so I apologise in advance if they look a bit grubby.
Let me start with Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette.
The palette is the classic black with white monogram compact, it comes with 4 sponge applicators and 1 bristles one (which are not that bad, actually) and very good size mirror.
This limited edition set contains 5 eyeshadows and came out for the Spring 2011 Collection.
I remember not being particularly taken by the visual of the collection but I was impressed with the consistency of product, once swatched in store... we're talking about pre-Illusion d'Ombre here.
Whilst Illusion d'Ombre are spongy-like, these shadows have more a buttery consistency and although the colours are pretty fair/pastels, the colour pay-off doesn't disappoint.
You can check out the Illusion d'Ombre that I have got here - if you wanna make a comparison... the white shade is very similar to Fantasme, colour-wise.
The shades are: pearly white with a hint of gold, metallic pink with warm undertone, dirty purple, khaki green and a muted black/charcoal. They all have a metallic sheen, thanks to a very very very fine glitter.
What do you think? I think these colours are stunning on their own or as a base to add an extra dimension to other eyeshadows.

They apply smoothly and in a thin layer and - even after a couple of years - I still like this palette very much and I'm glad I bough it! :)
