Chanel Mini Haul

Following on from yesterday's post, here is a quick look at some of the things I picked up at the Chance party...
First up, Chanel Ombre Essentielle Eyeshadow in Quartz (£19.41). Fiona, the MUA who was tasked with brightening up my face, choose this shade and teamed it with some grey eyeliner (not in the pic below). Although I didn't take the eyeliner, I fell in love with the gorgeously baby soft velvety feel of this little shadow and the shade just made my eyes so blue!
I can't enthuse enough about how soft and dense the application and pigment is. The colour is like a neon pastel, with the soft summery baby pink, with a much deeper, brighter undertone peeking through.
Quite pricey for a single e/s, so any future ones will definitely be a treat but really pleased with this one!

Next is another addition to my ever-growing Chanel foundation collection! This is the Vitalumiere Eclat Comfort Radiance Compact (about £42 I think, I couldn't get onto the Boots website to check).
Although this is more like a pressed powder compact, Fiona used it as a foundation alone. I normally think my skin is oily but Fiona said it seemed to be a bit de-hydrated and that even though the compact is powder based, it's still suitable for dryer patches and it looked fab! Very natural with a lovely day-time coverage. I received a free compact in my goodie bag, so the mini-version will go into my travel kit. Perfect!

This little card was one of the mini-freebies in my goodie bag, which has 4 little pots of Rouge Coco lipsticks. I haven't tried these yet, so am saving them for when I'm off on a night out or something to give the shades a whirl! Sorry about the pic, I forgot to turn it when I was editing...

Last, but not least! Chanel La Vernis Rouge Noir. My HG nail polish since I discovered it in 2005. Other colours may come and go, but Rouge Noir will always be there!

  1. Ahh, Rouge Noir. I wore this every day for about a year! Need to get a new one, I'd forgotten how much I missed it!
