I’ve been a little Chanel crazy lately. They have been coming out with some really tempting stuff and I love blue. This was something that I swatched quite a bit at the counter and then caved on much later. I was concerned about the two lighter shades in the palette being unusable for me. Once I practiced a little blending action on the back of my hand I saw that the bottom right shade is a great transitional blending color. I knew I’d be creating some intense blue looks with this quad but I had just as much fun lightening the blue shades up with the lighter colors in the palette. I ended up doing a lot of mixing with this palette. Combining colors and blending too. I was kind of surprised and pleased with the end result. I thought this might be going back if I didn’t get what I wanted out of it. These retail for $59 each.
My favorite shade out of the four was a little disappointing fallout wise. The beautiful shimmery deep blue on the bottom, left side has more fallout than I’d like. I always do my eye makeup before the rest of my face but I still hate glittery specks. I can never totally get rid of the really finely cut glittery fallout. Grrrrr.

I’m really happy with this palette because something about it brings out my creative side. Its a bit of a challenge and I like that!
