It’s no secret I’m crazy in love with Chanel‘s Stylo Yeux Waterproof liners. I have a whole collection. Everytime a new one is released I take a look, but I only buy it if the color is unique to my collection and the liner is soft and smooth.
Obviously 997 Orchidee passed the test. (click on pics to enlarge them.)
Orchidee is a purple without any kind of shimmer. The Collection has a matching eye shadow and nail polish, btw. But I think it works best as a pop of color like in the ad, where it is paired with the brown eyeshadow.
Orchidee goes on light and smooth. I think it’s the worst when an eye pencil is tugging over the sensitive skin. No worries with this one. The swatch is a single sweep. The color can be intensified, but I like it like this. It’s color, but not too busy. I would not try using it for a crisp line, though. It’s clearly more the slightly smudgy type, although it sets and then stays like that.
