Chanel Eyeshadow 58 Pourpre Brun (swatch)

Long time, no post.  Hopefully, this is the beginning of getting back into the swing of things for me.  I just moved and have only been in my new home here in Missouri for just over a month.  I may be overly ambitious because there are still some things I'd like to get done around the house, but I hit the ground running and I'm ready to get back to what makes me feel more like myself.

Despite being late to the game on both buying part of the Chanel Holiday 2019 limited edition collection and showing you the swatch, everything is still available for sale on the Chanel website

When I go for a deep outer-v shade I like to go for something that brings depth but isn't too dark.  I also find that certain purples can really start to look like a bruise on me.  This shade seems to have just enough red mixed in, that it keeps it from doing that.  It also works great as an all-over lid color for a smoky eye look.  It is not completely matte, it has a touch of a satin sheen to it that you can see in the swatches.  However, on the eyelids, it operates as a matte shadow in my experience.

I've used this shadow with a brush and with my fingers and both methods work great.  If you use a brush, it does take more building to get to full opacity, which is typical of matte shades.   It blends out nicely at the edges, but it doesn't happen instantly.  In my opinion that is a good thing, because once you have the level of pigment you are satisfied with, you don't lose it during blending.

In terms of color, I do own some other shades that give the same vibe in varying finishes.  I've compared it to Chanel Ombre Premiere cream in 810 Poupre Profond, Mac Oh My Mocha!, Mac Deep Damson, and Mac I'm Into It.  You can check out those swatches below.
