Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #104 Khaki Precieux from Superstition Fall 2013 Collection, Review & Comparison

On holiday, yay! It has been a week but still trying to catch up on blog whenever I have time. I might have left a few comments unanswered, please excuse me for that. I am trying hard not to miss sun and sea while publishing a post each second day. Right now it is working just fine and I didn't even have to take pictures. It seems making thousand of photos of everything I receive started to pay off *grins*. Anyway I am counting on my hubby who is back home, currently acting as the hero who saves my packages. He will bring a few of them with him while he is coming so that I can keep on posting. Isn't that sweet?

As my effort of trying my best to cover all the items from Fall 2013 collections goes on, today I have a pretty eye liner to share with you: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #104 Khaki Precieux from Superstition Fall 2013 Collection.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #104 Khaki Precieux

Doesn't matter what the others say, I have a weakness towards Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners. I like using them especially on my lower lash line as they tend to last long on me. I also like their "in-between" colors and often reach for darker ones also as liners along upper lashes. My favorite ones are #100 Santal, #85 Grenat, #83 Cassis, #70 Black Shimmer for upper lash line and #89 Or Rose, #87 Silver Light, #102 Beryl along lower water/lash line. You can see me using these frequently on my eye looks I post here. When I have seen a khaki eye pencil being released as part of Fall 2013 Chanel collection, I knew I had to have it.

Just like other Stylo Yeux Waterproof eye liners, Khaki Precieux comes in a twist-open black housing, including a sharper at the back. Most of the Stylo Yeux Eyeliners do have some fine shimmer, which I especially like having on my lower water line as well on on inner corner as it brings some light and brightness to the eye look. Khaki Precieux is no exception. It is a khaki shade with gorgeous golden shimmer to it. Khaki Precieux also has one of rather softer formulas among Stylo Yeux Eyeliners (for example in comparison to #57 True Blue from Summer Collection which was harder) so it will also be appealing to those who rather like using softer eyeliners.

I pulled out some similar green/khaki/gold leaning shades from my stash to compare them with Khaki Precieux. Some months ago I had a huge drug store haul, since I was wondering the quality of certain brands, therefore I happened to find a P2 eyeliner which also looked similar. Let's see how they compare...


Comparison to similar shades: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #104 Khaki Precieux

P2 Intensive Khol in #023 Precious Australia (such a pretty name!) was unfortunately a bit too light. Lancome's Jazzy Taupe is similar in intensity but misses the green/gold hues of Khaki Precieux. I wanted to show you also how Chanel Precision Eye Definer in #104 Khaki Platine compares and as you see this is more of a light taupe rather than khaki. Also other two shades I included from Chanel, #47 Brun Intense and #100 Santal are both more browns so I can comfortably say that Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in #104 Khaki Precieux is the first real Khaki I own from Chanel.

I checked out my Urban Decay Vault and found two shades which looked similar. Mildew, though, turned out to have more blue and was very different once applied. Urban Decay Stash on the other hand was considerably close, therefore I included one more swatch between these two. I found Khaki Precieux to have more golden shimmer and a greener base but the difference is rather subtle and on the eyes they look close.


Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #104 Khaki Precieux vs. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Stash

Final thoughts: I love my first real "Khaki" Eyeliner from Chanel. I can see myself wearing it rather along my lower lash line and on my lower water line to add brightness and color to my eye looks. It is a lovely shade for this upcoming season, and will add something to neutrals, taupes or even grays. If you already own Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On in Stash, you may want to consider that before splurging. Chanel Superstition Collection is still not available in Germany but we are expecting it any moment.

Do you like this shade as eye liner? Where would you rather use it? Which colors would you combine it with?

  1. Oh Gosh, I can't make up my mind! I swatched it today and loved the texture. I do already own Stash and PIXI Sage Gold. Both of them are probably reasonably similar, and I always smudge my eyeliner out with an eyeshadow too so... Ugggh this is TOUGH! I got many pieces from the collection already, but when I saw the rest today I still wanted almost everything else!

    1. LOL, I know. I am really trying hard to skip the lippies and telling myself that blushes are mostly not limited edition so that I can grab them later on but I know the feeling. And imagine, I couldn't even try them in person yet, LoL. Very hard would be my trio back and all those "duty free" stored in airports ;-)

    1. Hi Jenni,
      Yes it is versatile and softer than some other Stylo Yeux eyeliners. Do you use it along upper lash line too? I found it to be a bit too light there for my taste but on lower lash line and lower water line I liked the effect.

    1. Great idea! I should give it a try, up to now I only used it on the lower lash line.
