I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this. There are very few reviews of Chantecaille products, especially newer ones.
Could you do swatches when you get it? Would love to see some pics!
It hasn't come in yet but I will report back when it does. I got the warmer one. I think it is called Grand Canal.Which one did you order? I am a HUGE fan of Chantecaille!
Yay!! Glad its working out for you. I love this line and its so sad it doesn't get a lot of love like some of the other high-end brands.Just a quick report. I wore the Grand Canal duo earlier this week. Well really I just wore the green shade. It was really pretty. I need to play with it to see how I can work in the other color. I will say as I was applying it I couldn't help but think it would go well with the greenish Mac fluidline pencil I never got around to picking up so I will get that one very soon and see how it works with this shade. I do think the pans are quite large. I guess that is good since it is so pricey.
I've been wondering the same thing. I haven't tried these duos. Baked shadows are not usually too successful for me.I purchased the new Le Chrome Luxe Eye Duo in Monte Carlo. I swatched it dry and was unimpressed. The swatch looks nice on the finger but doesn't transfer to my arm for the swatch. I tried it over primer dry and was unimpressed. Then I tried to wet a brush and swatch it that way and STILL was disappointed. Finally I used the silly sponge-tip applicators that came with the product and it was beautiful with no primer on my arm. I'll have to test it on the eye tomorrow. Does anyone else own any of the Eye Duos? Wondering if they are all similar in performance?
Same for me with baked shadows, although when I wet my brush they are usually better. I was surprised when that didn't work this time. The only thing that worked was the sponge applicator. Still haven't tried them on the eyes.
