Chanel Notorious Sculpting Veil for Eyes and Cheeks Swatch


I've been lusting over Chanel Notorious Sculpting Veil for Eyes and Cheeks ever since I saw it on the runways last year. A gray-taupe contour color? You bet my grubby little manicured hands are all over it. I'll endeavor to have face shots by tomorrow, but I wanted to get swatches up as soon as possible in case you want one for yourself. After all, the last time Chanel debuted an interesting blush it sold out within the week.


You can layer it for a darker, smokier color (for eyes) or sheer it out to a soft gray-taupe as a contour. Before you think how can that possibly be on my cheeks, remember with natural contouring people are not supposed to know you did it, and that should be a guide on how much color you use. If you need additional help, Arianne from Glitter Geek just wrote a marvelous tutorial on natural contouring, complete with step-by-step pictorials. 

For your own, contact Alicia or Cindy at the Chanel counter at Saks Fifth Avenue New York. 212. 940. 2151

  3. as;ldfkagh soulmate. This is such a gorgeous shade -- I already have one or two (or, okay, three or four) shades that I'm using to contour, but this one looks absolutely gorgeous. I want :(

    (Canadian availability, though? What a disaster.)

  4. This color looks amazing, and surprisingly it doesn't swatch as grayish as how it looks in the packaging.

  5. OH WOW this is INTERESTING! I wonder if it'll pretty much get lost on my skin tone though. Don't really think we get this here but I'll check :)

  6. Uh... ok interesting. I can't imagine how I'd ever wear it, but wow. Might be a good one to turn me into a zombie for halloween? ;)

  7. Thanks for the swatches! Unfortunately, I found this product to look a little muddy and unnatural, from the pictures of it used in the Chanel shows (and it looks to have been used in their S/S ad campaign as well). Maybe they just used a very heavy hand for the show and pictures, but being so fair, I have a feeling that this would not work for me (if it didn't look muddy, I fear that it would almost look bruisy on me)

  9. I love this. Will it be sold at all Chanel counters, do you know?

  10. Wow this is very...grey. I certainly admire your ballsy approach to color, but I think I would be too scared to try something like this :P Also, a light-hand is not something I seem to possess, so hard to apply, super-pigmented colors are not for me :/

  11. Hey Paris!! Yoo Hoo ... it would be just beautiful if applied à la Xiao- you wouldn't look anything like a zombie! You would have beautifully carved cheekbones ... xoxo Beth in Pgh ;-)

  13. Anonymous- I'm sorry, I really don't know. Perhaps you could call them up and inquire?

  14. Emi- I don't know. My guess is all Chanel boutiques and select Chanel counters? You should inquire with your SA!

  15. Hello there! I was wondering how this compares to Nars Lhasa eyeshadow. Are they somewhat similar?
    Thanks so much for your insight!!

  16. Hi Raquel- I'm sorry! I tried searching for my Lhasa shadow to compare but couldn't find it. I think they are similar but not dupes. Lhasa probably has more lilac and more shimmer so it wouldn't be good on the cheeks.

  17. OMG this is THE blush colour I was searching for all the time!!! A greyish Taupe, perfect contour shade!!! Not orange or green or other undertones but the perfect shadow colour!!!!
