You Go, Coco!

Just a short entry to share the shiny, pretty things that called screamed out my name at the Chanel counter last week during my Breaking Ban celebration a.k.a counter hopping. I honestly thought I was rehabilitated enough to resist all kinds of temptation. You know — the sight of slightly touched testers waiting for my fingers to abuse all their glory and the soft caress as the product swatches smoothly and almost effortlessly on my arms. All that prior to the final inescapable doom of applying them on my face as I gaze into the blindingly well-lit mirror admiring the beauty it has deceivingly forged. YUP goodbye, rehab. 3

The Goods

+ Quadra Eye Shadow in Quadrille — Three words: NON.BAKED.VERSION. + Illusion d’Ombre in Diapason — Beautiful not-too-glittery purple that looked too beautiful to resist. + Le Vernis in Tapage — Wasn’t too convinced with this even after I bought it but I can’t resist pinky reds, red-y pinks. No first impressions whatsoever as I’m on the verge of finishing up my reviews for this. As you can see, Diapason has already been slightly butchered (the whole thing even fell out of the pot LOL) and I’ve worn Quadrille twice already! Tapage is currently on my nails, too. And yes, despite the beautifully swatched lipsticks that laid atop my arms that day, none came home with me. I think I’ve saturated my lipstick desires as I’ve been reaching for almost the same tubes over and over everyday. Must finish up a tube soon!

    I wasn’t expecting much from Quadrille but I infact liked it. Especially once applied on a pink Illusion d’Ombre. I expected to love Diapason but unfortunately that is not the case. Fate played a funny game and now I have two of Diapason lol! Anyway, my misses of this collection must have been then nail polishes, nothing so unique in my opinion. I especially love the Rouge Cocos, both of them. I hope you enjoy your goodies, I am sure they will look lovely on you!

      Same here, Sara!! I thought I’d get it cos its the non-Euro version (didnt really consider the shades much). But when I wore it – wow. I fell in love! Ive worn it for almost a week straight hahaha!!

      And OMG are we soul sisters or what – i thought id love Diapason too but ack I hated it on my eyes! I really wanted to love it but it looks so baaad. 🙁 And yea the lipsticks look amazing but I had to pass, my dry lips dont mesh well with Chanel’s formulas.

    Why is Chanel soooo expensive huhuhu. But if in case I decide to purchase my first-ever Chanel product, I think I would go for a lipstick. Any suggestions? Preferably matte and either a red or brown/pinkish brown shade. Hihi

      Hay nako sana lang talaga di siya sobrang mahal !! Kainis ang laki ng patong dito eh 🙁 With all the tax and etceterishhhzm!

      And thanks for your feedback on the logo V, I changed it already!! Trust your opinion 😉 Hihi.

      To be honest, my lips dont sit well with Chanel lipsticks. I will reco Dior pa than Chanel (actually just bought a matte lippie from Dior! Hehe).

    I loved the look of the Quadrille, it’s so pretty. I think that the Rose majeur eyeshadow duo is beautiful! those two colours in it work so well together. If you have seen the other illusion d’ombrre in Impulsion then that’s gorgeous as well! The texture of those is so lovely and buttery. So long wearing too!! I just reviewed a few bits from the Chanel Spring 2014 and I love them all. Excited to see what Summer’s collection holds!

    Ohgosh. Why must Chanel be so expensive? I mean I have a few lipsticks and the Vitalumiere Aqua but I really just wanna try the Illusion d’Ombre. And the nail polish! Gaaaah. I hope you can review the quad.

    Tbh, I find the thingy at the side a bit annoying. I use the mobile version and it’s just cut off.

    Nice picks, Ate Shari! 🙂 I’m gonna get two lipsticks. Hehehe. Can’t wait for your review! 😉

    Ugh Chanel. Haha this is one of the brands I hated saying ‘bye’ to. Lovely picks, Shari!
