So far not many holiday collections have caught my attention but I always have a soft spot for Chanel holiday offerings.
that I needed to get the Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad after
seeing Lena's post here and I have to say I'm really pleased with it. Whilst the shadows
aren't quite as soft/buttery as the 2012 Harmonie du Soir palette
they do have good pigment, apply evenly and blend well.
contains a sheer shimmery pale lilac pink, satin grey/taupe, metallic yellow gold and satin burgundy. I love the shot of the warm gold against the
smoky purple hues.
Shown below, I've used the taupe and burgundy really lightly as they go on quite intense on my skin.
Coups de Minuit (12) Joues Contraste Lumiere is a sheer beige
with a hint of peach, it has a sheen finish.
colour is a touch deep on my pale skin to use as standalone
highlighter, yet does not impart enough colour to use as a
blusher so instead I use this over blushers and it really does
add a pretty effect.
It has a smooth texture and blends
wonderfully on the skin without highlighting pores. The only
downside for me is the wear as I get fading after
Swatched below with some more typical highlighter colours L-R: Burberry Nude Radiance Highlighting Powder, Coups de Minuit and Dior Starlight.
My wild card was the Rouge
Allure in #237 Vaporeuse. Often lighter shades of the Rouge
Allures can go on uneven/patchy and make lines look more
noticeable, but I took a chance on this as it felt a lot
more creamy when I swatched it.
I do find this more
forgiving than a lot of lighter RA, though do recommend
smoothing the lips prior to application. The colour is a
cool pink with a hint of mauve, its just verging on the too
pale, too ice bitten look but manages to work to give a
delicate cool pink tint to the lips.
I'm really happy with everything I bought, though as a complete
look I think Vaporeuse does not work with the colours of the
Signe Particulier Quad.
I have started to see less than
favourable reviews for Signe Particulier on other blogs, and
though I did not encounter any problems with
application/pigment myself this might be one worth testing
in store before buying to check you are happy with the
pigment and feel.
I bought these from Boots.
