Bonjour ! Cava ?!
Oh yes, just keeping my French fresh. I decided today i would blog about one of my favourite makeup brands being tadaaaa Chanel. Oh i am a Chanel girl, i adore everything about the beauty collection apart from the price. LOL. Just stating the obvious. Anyway, these are the two palettes i own and have had for yonks and have finally decided to review these to you guys after some good testing. Enjoy !
Chanel Quad Eyeshadows
These eyeshadows were bought by me here in Greece for around 50 euro each fro my local beauty store. These come in the classic velvet pouch which i have somewhere in my beauty baskets and in a lovely Chanel paper box. The actual packaging of the quad is the classic very chic black and white waterproof plastic palette. I love the fact that it is waterproof because in comparison to the Urban Decay Naked Palette 1 due to its velvet like texture the eyeshadows or any makeup in general tends to cling on to the case in the most dirty like way. Not a good look.
Inside there is a big mirror which is big enough for you to be able to apply your eyeshadows comfortably on your eyes. There are also two little eyeshadow brushes (my mind has gone blank, i cant remember the actual name of them) that have their own little mini compartment and the four eyeshadows.
The eyeshadows themselves have all the shimmer finish to them , they are not matte. Actually i think they are more suited to be described as metallic shades. The shades will be shown somewhere on this post so check them out there for the full swatches as well as the names of the palettes which by the way are 95 Sparkling Satins and 79 Spices. Sparkling Satins in my opinion is all about the girls who love the smokey eyes. It has a beautiful pink that could be accompanied by the black and a fab silver and gold. Very dark , very sexy and very smokey. The Spices palette is all about the natural chic. It has your basic colours cream , peach , brown and gold. This is a fab palette for an everyday makeup look or for a girl who likes to be more discreet when it comes to eyeshadows. The eyeshadow quality is real nice and doesnt wear off that much however i still always wear my primer.
Personally i adore these palettes and would easily buy another one however ever since Urban Decay have come out with their fantastic and reasonably priced palettes i think i would probably choose Urban Decay over Chanel. Urban Decay will have a whole range of colors and not just 4 but certainly over 10 shadows for nearly half the price. Chanel is worth it dont get me wrong , if you do have the money to splash out.
Whats your favourite Chanel Beauty item ?! What do you choose Chanel or Urban Decay palettes ?!
