REVIEW: Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow Stick

Hello August,

This month I'm dedicating my blog reviews to 4 very beautiful 'Eyeshadow Sticks'
All from different brands and different shades.

This week I'm starting off with Chanel's Stylo Eyeshadow in '167 Bronze Platine'
First of I want to state that a lot of changes products are special edition so its usually a one time thing with these gold dust products, which I suggest, if you see something, get it while you can.
These eyeshadow sticks are special editions, yes, but they seem to recreate these a lot but bring out different shades throughout the season so I'm sure there are similar ones you can get.

This one was a Winter collection from a few years ago, I brought 2 shades, this Bronze and a Pink.
These sticks are a 'Fresh Effect Eyeshadow' and this may mean nothing to some people but once you use one of these you will understand the name… On application of wearing these they feel cool on the eyes and thats because they are water infused sticks, which comes from the name 'fresh'.
The feeling of this is actually really nice as they feel refreshed on the eyelids and sit lovely on the eyelids as well as working the in with your fingers also looks very sultry.

The obviously apply how they sound… 'sticks' so you don't need any brushes to apply these products either just from the applicator or your fingers. They roll up from the neck of the product by twisting it up as you use. So again, no sharpeners or any tools, which make these so versatile when travelling and applying.

The colour pigment is great, with a real depth of colour chosen and a reflective shimmer that works well for all ages as its not too glittery.
This Bronze Platine shade is a very unusual shade, its more of a cool bronze/gunmental colour which works better with a cool shades eye look or even on its own.
The overall shades are very metallic, not so much glitter or shimmery and have a great reflective angle with the lights.

I also find these sticks amazing as a base colour then to layer on any loose or pressed pigment over the top to add extra colour definition to an eye look.

These Chanel Sticks sure are a must for your makeup bags, so keep your eyes out for any new collections releasing with these sticks, or even try your local Chanel counter and see if they have any left over stock. - I actually got this bronze one when the collection finished.

Love Sophie xx
