Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre ($28) seems like a tough color to wear. After all, "Peche Cuivre" is French for "copper peach," and this limited-edition shade might seem a bit too out of the ordinary to catch your interest.

After playing around with it, I've discovered that Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre is a surprisingly flattering, beautiful shade that's worth your attention.

Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre is a pale peach with plenty of golden warmth. It looks a little dark when swatched heavily, but in person the shade is bright and reflective enough to be perfect for my favorite, good old waterline trick.

I've previously discussed how much I love applying a white or pale beige eyeliner to my waterline in order to brighten and enlarge my eyes, and I discovered that Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre can be used to create a similar effect.

I applied Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre both inside and just below my waterline. The pale peach color adds just a hint of definition, while the abundant shine opens up my eyes and makes them look brighter and more awake. The difference is both subtle and significant -- most people won't be able to tell that you're wearing peach eyeliner, but they will notice that your eyes somehow look more amazing :)

Formula-wise, Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre is extremely soft. This allows for easy application that won't damage your delicate eye area. However, the soft formula also means that the tip of the eyeliner breaks easily, so be sure not to press too heavily.

Overall, I really love how the unique color of Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre beautifies my eyes. Unfortunately, and perhaps this goes without saying, the price tag is extremely high. The eyeliner is pretty large and comes with a sharpener, but $28 is darn expensive!

Still, if you're ready for a splurge, I will say that Chanel is hard to beat.
