102 SENSATION CHANEL OMBRE ESSENTIELLE SOFT TOUCH EYESHADOW - SWATCHES AND REVIEW
102 SENSATION is a limited edition eyeshadow from the Chanel 2014 Fall Collection ÉTATS POÉTIQUES. It is described as an ivory pink but it seemed more like an extremely pale warm vanilla. There are six single eyeshadows released with this collection and I purchased all of them except one - Admiration. The Chanel Ombre Essentielle soft touch eyeshadows currently retail for $29.50 USD and contain .07 oz of product
Sensation is the fourth eyeshadow from this collection that I have reviewed and it was the most disappointing. When swatched it barely showed up on my arm and on my eyes it wasn't even visible. In my opinion, Sensation was the most frustrating, powdery mess of all six eyeshadows. I just couldn't get it to work. Although it might be okay for some Sensation was a total fail for me.
The texture for the majority of these ombre essentielle soft touch eyeshadows is soft and smooth but quite powdery. Even though the eyeshadows look bold in the pan they actually blend down to a rather sheer and soft look. To amp up the color I like to apply the eyeshadow with a dampened brush to allow for a more vibrant swatch and to lessen the fallout from the eyeshadow. Wear times can vary depending on how heavy these are applied. When applied dry they wear for about six to seven hours with significant fading. When applied wet or slightly damp the wear time was longer (about ten hours) with slight fading.
