Chanel Lilac Sky is a cool-toned pinkish lilac with tons of silver shimmer. Pastels are so often warm-toned that they really don’t work on me at all, but this one, with the cool blue undertones actually makes it quite wearable for me. Application was actually better and less sheer than I expected. Two coats for opacity and no formula issues to mention. Even though it’s a bit frosty, it doesn’t really show brush strokes, but if you’ll be taking close-up photos, just make sure to do straight and even strokes. I noticed nothing until I saw my photos and there are a few very faint brush stroke marks that you couldn’t really see at arms length.
