Eye Adore: Chantecaille Shadow in Malachite

It started with the hunt for a black based color that would not run ‘black’ without the help of a cream. I had this smoky eye look in mind for an upcoming shoot… but I wasn’t sure WHAT color I wanted to use for the smoke (not black or brown or grey, as per the usual).

And I found this:

What’s awesome about this color is that it’s not black or green or grey… but sort of a combination of the three. It swatches a STRONG greenish grey with just a hint of subtle shimmer. It’s so intense, that you can easily use it as an eyeliner.

Love this color. I don’t have a color like this anywhere in my kit (I thought it was like Rock & Republic Lawsuit… but this shade is much richer and darker), so I felt like I did a good thing. You can learn more about Chantecaille single eyeshadows HERE.
