Soft Touch Eyeshadow, a Chanel classic, is an ultra-fine powder eye shadow that's "foolproof" in its application and fabulous in its range of matte, satin, and shimmer finishes. The versatile formula can be applied dry for subtle shading, or dampened for more intense color, and the...

Chanel Tigerlily Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a "golden orange." It's a warm tangerine orange with a soft golden orange shimmer set in a low-sheen finish. It reminded me a lot of MAC Juiced, which is a little dirtier–not quite as clean of a...

I don't have many matte grey eyeshadows in my stash thus making this my current "go-to" grey, a unique addition to my collection. And because the colour payoff is not fabulous, I wouldn't recommend it – I believe there are other greys out there which are more pigmented and at a lower price...

Friday Another pretty item from the NARS Adult Swim collection, the Iraklion Soft Touch Shadow Pencil is a neutral smoky quartz that exhibits a touch of mauve. Perfect for daytime looks, it doesn't have the same holding power as the Malacca eyeshadow, but both pair together beautifully. By...

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base underneath, the shadows still creased after a while. At this price, there are definitely better products out there. I would try Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eyeshadow Pencils or Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils instead. Silver Factory,...

It's funny to me that NARS chose to call their new Soft Touch Shadow Pencil from the spring 2012 collection a name like Dark Rite ($24), unless they meant it as a question. Dark, right? Even though it's not. But at least that would leave the door open for a different answer, LOL! — one...
