Nuit Infinie de ChanelBefore I went on a non-negotiable temporary makeup ban a week ago (which from then also I’ve been quite preoccupied due to some activities so churning out posts has become the least of my concerns), I gave in to some beauties from the Chanel Holiday 2013 collection upon swatching them on the counter (btw, the newly-renovated Rustan’s counter in Makati is beautiful!!). Only two items came home with me that day because despite my longing for the Illusion d’Ombres (especially Fatal), they’re just too glittery for my liking. Although Fatal is really beautiful layered on top of a powder shadow! On its own, it looked rather blah against my skintone, but layered atop the dark shades of Charming, it just glistens beautifully! Almost made it to the cashier, except I just had to sneak a peek at myself under non-beauty counter lighting and bam, it was two steps over being wearable glitter for me.
Charmed, I amChanel Ombre Matelassee Eyeshadow Palette in Charming was just too pretty a neutral to pass up on. I’ve actually killed this lemming upon seeing swatches online but swatching it in person made me reconsider. It’s not remarkable as far as eyeshadow formulas go, because I still am currently in awe of Burberry’s sheer eyeshadow formula. But it’s definitely notches higher than the usual Chanel baked eyeshadow formula (except Seduction, maybe!). It’s smooth, pigmented and easily blendable. The second (from the left) shade doesn’t show up too well on my lids, though. I need to build it up a little in order to show but I love the rest of the shades a lot. I can see this as a daily wear palette that I can definitely get a lot of use out of. I’m even thinking this might be the first palette I might hit pan on (don’t wanna jinx it, though!). So yes, as far as first impressions go, I like the shades a lot for daily use even if it’s not really a groundbreaking palette for many. I’m a neutral girl so for me, this is already ‘exciting times’!!
Just the Right AccentChanel Joues Contraste Blush in Accent was definitely the only sure thing in my Chanel Holiday wishlist. I had no similar shade in my collection that’s quite like it. It’s a dusty mauve that I felt could work as a neutral blush slash contour shade on me and I’m super ecstatic to tell all those who have the same skintone as mine that that it does! It has quite a lot of glitters, though so when applied, it does have a certain sheen that’s not so subtle. I’ll stop blabbering and just leave you with my FOTDs wearing these two beauties.
THE LOOKSI didn’t pick up any lipsticks from the collection because I found Chanel formulas don’t seem to jive well with my lips (despite La Desiree calling out my name even in my sleep). For this look, I whipped out some MAC lipsticks in my arsenal to choose from instead. I went with a light pink (MAC Angel) at first because I wanted to see how the look would turn out if I got Rouge Allure Radieuse. I then tried a plummy pink shade (MAC Craving) to try and brighten up the overall neutral look and ended up liking and wearing it instead (excuse the haphazard blending and imperfect base, I only had a few minutes to spare on this look).
