Chanel Pearl River Eye Palette - Hong Kong Collection

Pearl River is the new Ombres Matelassees eye palette  from the Hong Kong Collection. As with most Chanel palettes, it's seriously pretty. A selection of 3 earth tones and one silver that is especially great for those of us with green eyes.  All colors can use it and will love it,  but green eyes , it rocks on them.

Is it very unique ? Well maybe not. You might find these colors in other palettes but  not all 5 of them in one and let's face it, we all swoon for a new Chanel eye palette . They occupy a place all their own.

The shades here are  golds, deep brown,  the sunset colored orange shade and then there is a high shimmer silver white. That one will really brighten up eyes . All have shimmer to them and the embossed Chanel quilting.  The brown  goes on full pigment, the others with a slightly lighter look.

The odd shade  for most will be the orange-ish one. Me, I can wear that color well , so this whole palette is right in my wheelhouse.  I am thinking of pairing with Captivante Rouge Allure and /or Brilliant Rouge Coco.

Chanel's Pearl River is $ 80, LE and available at Chanel boutiques, and
