To begin with, Chanel Blurry Eye Collection is a real game changer. In other words, the new collection will change the way we apply eyeshadow. Then, it will change the way our eye makeup looks. In fact, it changes the way we think about eyeshadow. First, there is no black in this collection. Consequently, there is no black eyeliner. Also, no black mascara! Oh no!!!
You can find the entire Chanel Blurry Eye Collection on the Chanel Website. First, Shade with The Les Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow Palette, in Blurry Mauve, Blurry Grey, Blurry Green, and Blurry Blue is $62. Next, Line with Stilo Yeux Waterproof Liner, in five corresponding shades, costs $33. Then, Amplify with , ($35). Don’t forget your lips! Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Intense Matte Lipstick(,$38)
Chanel Blurry Eye Collection – Color Mauve
I chose the Blurry Mauve quad. All of the Mauve shades , when blended, look mauve. The reason for this is all of the shades are indiscernible, which means it is impossible to see or clearly distinguish one shade from the other. In other words, the quad shades , when applied and blended , are blurry. (And that is what they are supposed to be!)
In this way, Chanel is simplifying eye makeup. The object of each of the four quads is to delve into one color.
In my case, the color is Mauve. Not only is the eyeshadow mauve, in this look, the eyeliner, and mascara are also mauve. In fact, you don’t even need to highlight or add definition to create the Blurry Eye. For one thing, the Mauve Eye only needs three things. One, you need the Blurry Mauve Eyeshadow Quad. Two, you need the matching Mauve eyeliner. Finally, you also need the matching mascara. However, if you want another color, besides Blurry Mauve, you can choose the eyeshadow quad, eyeliner and mascara in Blurry Green, Blurry Grey, or Blurry Blue

To open the tube press down on the top of the lipstick. Then, the lipstick will pop up.

Chanel Blurry Eye Collection Last But Not Least…………
First of all, if you want to simplify your eye makeup, the Chanel Blurry Eye Collection is perfect for you. You really only need to use one or two shades, at a time, in the palette. All you need to do is swirl them together, and swipe the brush across your eyelids! Then, finish the look with the matching eye liner and mascara.
Furthermore, if you look at your quad, and see each shade individually, you aren’t going to see Mauve in each one of those shades. However, when you blend the four shades together, voila, they become Mauve. Moreover, don’t the shades look rather dark in this collection?
Isn’t it supposed to be Spring/Summer? I am surprised that this collection was released this time of year. The reason is, these shades are not your light, fluffy summer shades.
Also, you can’t count on painting by numbers with this quad. For example, there is no highlighter(step 1). Then, when you try to build a crease shade (step 2), and put a darker shade on your outer corners(step 4), all you get is Blurry Mauve!!!! See what I mean?
Finally, if you want a Blurry Mauve, Grey, Green or Blue, look, this collection is the way to go. On the other hand, if you want an easy, breezy highlighted, and well-defined look, forget about it! This look isn’t going to happen with this collection. So, if you like the idea of one color, all the way around, but think it’s too dark for spring/summer (I do), then wait til fall, then you can revisit it. Are we clear?
