Chanel has recently released their new duos (Ombres Contraste Duo) here in the UK. I was never impressed with the old Irreelle ones, the pigmentation was poor and they faded with ease.
Each duo contains a light shimmery shade and a darker matte one. I bought Taupe Delicat (£29), which contains a shimmery champagne and matte neutral brown. I have similar shades but what I like about this is the champagne does not apply warm on me. The compact comes with a tiny brush and sponge brush.
The texture is quite smooth, the colours blend well and it’s easy to build them up. As long as I use a primer the shades last well. However, whilst the texture is noticeably better than the Irreelle ones, I do not think this excels other my other favourite brands.
All the colours of the duos are good basics rather than unique shades. Ultimately I think you will likely have similar colours to the majority of the duos, however I do like having a duo of a shimmery and matte shade in the same compact and they are good no brainer shades to throw on should you be in a rush in the morning, so I do think these are worth a look.
