Charlotte Ronson Starry Eyes Liquid Eyeshadow swatches from the left: Alison, Sky, Kelly and Shiri
Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight…I wish I may, I wish I might, have the Chanel wish I wish tonight…
Any and all liquid-to-powder eyeshadows stamped with the Chanel double C’s on the cap are pretty much rad in my book.
Too bad they always cost 8 million bucks… Or thereabouts. Okay, well $32. But that’s still pretty steep, considering you could snag 32 Taco Bell tacos for the price of a single lovely tube of Chanel Ombres D’Eau Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow.
But wait! — have the heavens heeded my call…? Is that a more affordable option, I see?
Yes, I believe it is. Thanks to Sephora and Charlotte Ronson.
The four lightweight liquid-to-powder Starry Eyes Liquid Eyeshadows, available now at Sephora stores and sephora.com, are priced at a much more palatable $18, and from here they look heavily inspired by Chanel.
From their gorgeous glass tubes, to their dainty doe-foot applicators, all the way down to the colors themselves, these crease-resistant eyeshadows glow and shimmer very much like their pricier Chanel counterparts.
“Fashion ‘it’ girl Charlotte Ronson is best known for combining her effortless sense of style with her chic downtown designs. Fun and trendy, though wearable, Charlotte is bringing the same sensibility to her new beauty collection.”
Golden beige Kelly reminds me of Chanel Delta, silvery pink Sky resembles Chanel River, golden olive Shiri could stunt double for Chanel Torrent, and bronzy taupe Alison is like Chanel Splash’s kissing cousin.
They’re kinda fun to use. Just shake the bottle to mix the powder and liquid formula, swipe the doe-foot applicator across your lids, and blend with a finger.
For a more intense effect, wait for the product to dry before applying additional layers. Work quickly, though, because these babies dry fast.
