Chanel Ombre Contraste: Rubis/Marine

This is another one purchased between 1984 and 1988.  Chanel recently reintroduced duos, but not in this form: the new ones are in separate pans rather than together as in these older duos.  This was designed to be used wet or dry, though I have only swatched it dry, using the original sponge applicator.  The colors were hard to photograph, not really appearing as nice as they do in person.

The outside of the case is a little scratched up, but not as bad as expected, given the condition of some of the others of its era.

The applicators were in decent condition, though the sponge one was a bit delicate.

Swatched in shade.

Swatched in sunlight.
