Here is a close-up of the Liaison Glossimer, and another photo of it compared to some of my other lighter Glossimers.

L to R: Moonlight, Glitter, Galactic, Liaison. I'm hoping to pick up Aragonite, but from what I've seen it is pretty similar to Galactic.

Last post for the night (I promise!!)

When my package arrived, there was a surprise gift inside (which made me get over my guilt a little for spending so much money): this beautiful music box!

It's a real music box that you can wind up and watch Coco twirl around with the music... and it comes with a mini Coco M pure parfum.

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??

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.

I was planning on going to the launch party at macys, but not sure if I really want to go after working a long day. It is only on Thursday and friday. Do you all think it is worth it?

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.

summer collection, too.... thanks
