Is anyone out there? Just a quick post while I continue to edit and swatch my way through the plethora of holiday purchases before I even let myself contemplate purchasing more spring stuff (I have already ear-marked a few things but they aren’t in my hands yet!)
Chanel was definitely the unsung heroine of my holiday collections. It was one of the first palettes I got, I wore it on a weekly basis, and I loved everything about it… but it also appeared on every single beauty blog in existence and I didn’t think anyone needed MORE swatches.
But I loved this look so you’re going to be subject to it now, as I’m still enjoying this palette quite a lot 😛
On a related note, I think I actually like Harmonie de Soir slightly more than Topkapi (its predecessor) but mostly because it combines burgundy and gold which turned out to be my favourite colour combination (I am totally buying into the burgundy-as-a-neutral trend). The texture of BOTH palettes is 100x better than Chanel’s baked quads to the point that I will probably only buy quads in this formulation or the US one, as the baked quads are much more sheer and prone to fallout.
I’m also still in love with the Joues Contraste. I was sure Star Dust was going to be too pale, but it provides a lovely glow on its own (I think) and wears well over very pigmented blushes to tone them down. Kim at Holt Renfrew Calgary is too good at talking me into things, in other words 😛
