Hello My Lovelies,
Hope your all well :D I'm in a great mood right now, all my deadlines have been handed in for February, our Cheerleading Competition went amazing at the weekend and i've had lots of exciting emails, it's all really lifted my mood! :)
So, as you've probably noticed from a few of my last posts, i've gone a bit Urban Decay crazy, i do have tones more products to review for you guys but i though i'd change it up a bit and review something else, as your probably getting a little bored of all my Urban Decay posts :D sorry guys, can't help it, the brand is totes amaze!! ;)
Anyways, so a few posts ago, on one o my Haul posts i posted that i purchased a Chanel quad in Mystic Eyes. This palette is truly stunning and i thought i'd review it for you today :) It is part of their permanent line, it was released in 2009 with Chanels 'Bohemian Fantasy Collection' which was a beautiful collection in its self :D
When i saw this palette on display i instantly fell in love with it! It was a total impulse purchase as i just went in to get the new limited edition highlighter but ended up walking out with a few other Chanel goodies.
First of all i'd have to say that yet again Chanel have not disappointed on the packaging front, i think it's so classy, luxurious, compact and easy to use. This little beauty comes with four beautiful eyeshadows all in a smudge-proof formula that you can apply as they are or dampened, for example, with Fix+ for a more intense nightime look.
Shades from L - R
Neutral Charcole Chocolate Brown with Golden Flecks
This is such a beautiful charcole chocolate shade which is very pigmented. It has slight golden sparkles within it's velvelty formula and looks absolutely stunning swiped over the lid alone or used within a smokey eye look in your crease.
Light Shimmery Milky Vanilla Pink
This is a beautiful natural shade which is very similar to 'Naked Lunch' by MAC. It's very sheer and works great as a wash colour for you rlid and a subtle highlight for a smokey eye. This also has a lovely velventy texture and applies like a dream.
Silvery Sparkly Taupe
This is the shade which drew me to this palette the most! It's very similar to Chanel - Illusion D'Ombres Eyeshadow in Epatant, which i also picked up when purchasing this beautiful palette and i think they will look beautiful layered on together. Swatched it is very sheer, you see a hint of it's beautiful silvery taupe shade with just the right amount of sparkle. This will be the perfect shade to wash over your lid if your in a hurry.
Milk Chocolate Shimmery Brown
This shade reminds me of 'Mulch' by MAC and that's one of my all time favorite eyeshadows! Like the rest of the eyeshadows it also has a velvety texture which makes it smooth and easy to apply. It has an almost bronzed pearl undertone which is beautiful on the eyes!
All of the shade come out true to the colour in the pans which is something that i love with Chanel as your getting exactly what your paying for. The quality is absolutely amazing and i can't wait to experiment more with outher shades :D I love how they could be used on a daily basis for natural looks but also darkened up for an edgy sexy night look.
Have you tried this palette before? Have you tried any other Chanel eyeshadows? What would you reccomend?
