Chanel Double Couleur French Accents: Navy / Rose

I probably bought this in 1987, when Chanel launched this then-unique product.  It's a double-ended wand with powder shadow in the two caps that rubs onto the sponge-tip applicators on the ends of the wand.  One end is navy blue, the other a light cool-leaning pink.

This was a neat idea, and I liked its portability.  Unfortunately, the sponges weren't the best method of application , giving little control over amount applied or even placement of the shadow.  The result was usually a bit patchy, and in those days I had no idea bout blending with brushes.  Because of this I didn't end up using it much.  Too bad, since the colors are quite pretty and look nice together.
