Inspired by the precious materials and exquisite craftsmanship that goes into each Chanel jacket, this new limited edition eye palette is a sight for sore eyes

We all have our dream list of fashion and jewellery items we want to own, from a luxury watch to a lustrous strand of pearls to Chanel's iconic tweed jacket. Dress it up as a full skirt suit or down with jeans — either way the beauty and craft behind each Chanel piece cannot be hidden. Inspired by the materials that Mademoiselle Chanel held dear and the handwork that goes into each piece, the makeup studio has created the limited edition Ombres Lamées de Chanel. 

Like the most precious gold jewellery, this eye palette consists of a harmony of four eyeshadow shades — light brown, medium brown, dark brown and gold — woven together for a seamless pallette. Embossed on the surface are raised patterns that look like overlaid tweed fabric — much like a Chanel jacket or handbag — and strewn with golden, pearly particles for good measure. To complete the haute couture feel of this palette, is the sleek black case that it comes in and not one, but two eyeshadow brushes. The result is pure Coco magic and a great gift for the distinguished (or makeup crazy) woman in your life.
