Limited Edition - CHANEL Charming Eyeshadow Palette - Holidays 2013
This is the only item that captured my attention from the Holiday 2013 collection presented by CHANEL… although when I went to visit the counter I also walked away with 2 new nail lacquers (see them here).
I don't know if I would have spent that kind of money on a palette if not for Lisa Eldrige who labeled this as "THE ONE" for her. Lucky lady received hers months ago from CHANEL, I waited until November then made a pilgrimage to Holt's and got one for myself.
It comes housed in a soft velvety sleeve. I know some find this wasteful and useless and throw these out, but if my palette (shadow, blush, or bronzer) is encased in something so pretty, that's how I store it.
Except for the middle shade all are velvety matte. When I look at the 5 shade range the word "earthy" comes to mind. This isn't a typical holiday palette, no gold and no glitter, instead it is understated in a very sophisticated and elegant way.
My favourite colour is at the very end. This gorgeous dark grey-purple is hard to describe, but I reach for it every time I pop this open.
