Here are my most recent Chanel purchases. The Pearl Glow Powder, Glossimer, and Rouge Allure lipstick are part of the Tourbillon D'Eclat de Chanel Asia Exclusive collection. I ordered these from a seller in Singapore, something that I've never done before since I'm usually too impatient to wait ~3 weeks for a package, also there hasn't been anything in the past that I wanted so much as to pay the marked-up prices. In this case, there were 5 products that I really wanted (actually there were more, but I've got to draw the line somewhere!) so I just went ahead and took the leap. I just took some basic photos, but will try to add some swatches soon if anyone is interested (it got dark soon after I took these pics). I'm hoping to pick up the Rouge Coco Peregrina and the Aragonite Glossimer soon and can compare these, but I did compare the Liaison Glossimer to Galactic and it is quite different (I'll post that photo next).
I have no idea what to expect from the silver and pearl powders. A few years ago I bought a highlighter palette at NM called "So Chanel", just because it was so pretty, and it did absolutely nothing on my skin! I still use it though, it's a total placebo affect LoL. I hope these at least show up on my skin! Lastly, the eyelash curler is just cool. I didn't need it at all, not one bit, I've been perfectly happy with my Shu-Uemura one, but being the Chanel beauty junkie that I am, I still bought it.
So pretty!!!!! I'm curious about the powder and how it applies-is the applicator a giant sponge??
Oooh!!! Now I want THIS quad!! I just phoned bg and switched the enigma quad to the kaska beige quad. Now I wonder if I need a second quad. How similar is this to the enigma? If I have the reflets d'ombres quad and ombres perlees de chanel quint already, and the kaska beige quad coming, which other one do I get? This or enigma? I'm torn! I'm far too indecisive.
Do you mean how close is the Murano or the kaska? Murano is nothing like the Enigma quad. It's quite gorgeous, like greenish blue shades and a pretty pink.
Is it just the Rouge Shines coming out tomorrow or all the summer collection? I am really wanting to test out the peach bronzer. I may wait to ask for that as a B-day pressie but I am not sure yet. Judging by the colors of foundation Chanel sells, I think the pink (looks too light for me) will sell out quick and I may be OK with waiting until May for the peach.
Also want to check out the new quad...LOVE green shadows.
