Chanel Ombres Lamées de Chanel for Holiday 2016

Chanel Ombres Lamees de Chanel

For holiday Chanel is releasing a special limited-edition palette called Ombres Lamées de Chanel ($105 for 14 g/0.49 oz, made in Italy). It launches officially on Chanel.com November 28th but I’m thrilled to share that Beauty Look Book readers are getting an exclusive to shop it early starting today through this specific link. In addition they’ve offered a special overnight shipping code (details at bottom of post)! The Ombres Lamées de Chanel is, “Inspired by the meticulous craftsmanship and rich textures of iconic Chanel Ready-to-Wear creations, this exclusive palette reveals a harmony of exquisite shadows in three shades laced with gold. The soft, silky texture leaves an even, luminous finish.” The palette is exactly as described – soft, silky and luminous.

The Ombres Lamées de Chanel comes cased in a small black box which also contains a little black pouch and two brushes. The brushes are small for detail application and blending but extremely well made. The design of the palette is simply exquisite – like a work of art in a small compact. It’s almost too pretty to use with the gold overspray accents and gorgeous embossed surface patterns. There’s a chart online at Chanel which gives a how-to application guide, but I tried it by swirling all the colors together for a soft luminous golden eye look with slight smoky tones. First a closer look at the palette:

It’s truly a sight to behold:

The surface does have some gold overspray which is just beautiful. A look at the palette below once the overspray has been removed:

There are three colors in the palette: yellow warm gold shimmer, soft taupe shimmer, satiny brown-black. The texture is very soft and colors are sheer-to-medium but can be applied slightly damp for more color. The overall effect is soft and luminous.

The colors are easy to layer but since the stripes of color are on the small side you will need to use a detail or smaller brush to pick up individual colors. The brushes that come with the palette are the perfect size for picking up shades individually, but most likely some swirling between colors will occur.

If you haven’t yet seen the palette I hope this review helps give you an idea of the texture and colors. I think the effect of the shades swirled together is really pretty and makes for a soft smoky gold and almost olive-tinged eye that is great for holiday. The palette launches officially online at Chanel.com November 28th. Beauty Look Book readers get early access by shopping through this Ombres Lamées de Chanel link. In addition you can receive overnight shipping with code GOLDEN at checkout, valid 11/23 at 12:01am – 11/28 at 5pm.

Many thanks to Chanel for sending me this palette and for offering my readers early access!

    Hi Sabrina! Great review and photos! Just wanted you to know that when I type in “thebeautylook…” I get sent to your older posts, i.e. the one right before your new post. However, if I type in the “www” before the rest of the address, I get sent to your newest post. Don’t know if it matters but this is what happens when I’m on my phone. Haven’t tried yet on a computer.

    Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving!

    It’s almost too pretty to use! I want it just to have it lol.

  • Gilda Stahl

    Will this be exclusive to the Chanel site or also at stores?

  • Tracey E.

    Thank you SO MUCH, Sabrina, for your review and your gift to purchase this LE eyeshadow palette – that is in such high demand – before it formally launches on Chanel’s site. I love the swatches and would like to know how you were able to combine the rows to get the distinctive shades that you swatched.

    Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Hi Sabrina, Love the blog! But I’m having trouble accessing the images on your website and on my phone when I use safari, which is my default browser. The images of the swatches and of the palette without the overspray are not loading. I’m having the same problems as Anon above accessing the latest posts on my phone.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing and thanks for providing a link for early access and free shipping. The palette is beautiful!

    Ordered! When I saw this palette on Chanel.com a few days ago, I immediately thought of you! I thought I’d have to wait a while to get your input, but I’m delighted you got your hands on this early. THANK YOU for your excellent review and getting early access for the rest of us, too. Now, how’s that new Coco Code blush palette?? 🙂

  • PaL

    Thanks Sabrina! Just ordered the palette and the lip gloss you’re wearing. Can’t wait!

  • I ordered it as soon as I saw the link, I didn’t even read the “scroll to bottom” until after I completed my order… darn! But it’s worth the wait!

  • Mariann

    This item is beautiful. Looks like a piece of art. I would love an opportunity to use this lovely palette. It won’t be in my budget this season.

  • Courtney

    It looks like they removed this from their site? I had been hoping to screen shot their suggestions on how to use since they didn’t include it with the palette this time 🙁

    Do you know if Chanel has that available anywhere? Or maybe you have suggestions on the best ways to mix/layer?

    Thank you!
