This post is kind of old news by now, but I had to share this Fauve-rite new shadow of mine with you. Ever since I first laid my taupe-obsessed eyes on pictures of Chanel’s new Fauve eyeshadow, I just knew that we would be BFFs.
I actually got this back in early September, but somehow have managed not to post about it for almost 2 months. It’s high time you saw this beauty in action.
This is my favorite kind of taupe. I prefer my taupes with a more purple/silver lean to them, and that’s exactly the effect that Fauve gives. It’s dimension is so difficult to capture on film. I had to see this one in person first to really experience how gorgeous it is. Color me impressed!
And of course, you want to see what it looks like on the eyes….
It is exactly what I hope it would be. It lasts all day on me, however I do normally use some kind of primer or base, I never wear it completely dry…or any powder shadow for that matter. The only thing I would caution against is that you may, depending on what base you use and/or how you apply it experience a small amount of fall out. I patted mine on with the sponge tip applicator it came with in this look and didn’t have issues. But, I could see it being one if you just try to brush or swipe it on. It isn’t the softest, creamiest powder ever, but it is a nice formula and the color is beyond.
P.S.- I am wearing MAC’s Oh, Oh, Oh Lipstick here.
Fauve is a winner all around for me. Although I wish Chanel’s packaging was a little more luxe than it is, I do think it’s worth picking up.
Have you tried Chanel’s eyeshadows? Is Fauve the kind of shade you would go for? Dish!
