108 EXALTATION CHANEL OMBRE ESSENTIELLE SOFT TOUCH EYESHADOW - SWATCHES AND REVIEW
108 EXALTATION is a bright pink eyeshadow from the Chanel 2014 Fall Collection ÉTATS POÉTIQUES. 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. Exaltation shows up brighter when swatched but during application it loses some of its vibrancy. It is a very beautiful and unique eyeshadow that can also be worn as a blush as well. I currently use the Chanel blush Emotion (see swatches here) to do double duty as both an eyeshadow and blush. The colors for both of these are quite similar - Exaltation (might be a smidgen brighter) and Emotion has a smoother finish and isn't as powdery.
The texture for the majority of these is soft and smooth but quite powdery. Even though these 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.
