Chantecaille Sel or MAC Patina? That is the Question- Swatches
One of my beloved readers, BooBooNinja, thought that Chantecaille Sel and MAC Patina might be dupes-- so asked me to swatch them to see. Therefore, when I was a Barneys yesterday I swatched Sel on a cotton pad and brought it home to swatch against Patina. As much as I loaded that cotton pad with pigment it didn't successfully transfer to my arm this morning because much of it had fallen away from the cotton pad before I got back home. I didn't bring Patina with me to Barneys because it is depotted and in a pro palette which I didn't have the space to carry (nor did I want to risk damaging the pan alone). However, I did swatch Sel on my arm at Barneys and immediately knew that it was less bronze and less warm than Patina. As is expected from all of the glorious Chantecaille eye shadows, Sel is buttery soft, fantastically pigmented, and gorgeous to behold. It is definitely markedly differs from Patina as you can see.
