Chanel Holiday 2012 Make Up Collection!

One of my most anticipated make up releases of the holiday season is definitely the Chanel Holiday 2012 Make Up Collection (Éclats du Soir de Chanel). In fact, if you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed my daily checking status updates! Yep, I checked online stores daily after the counter release so that I could order it asap! Things people do to get their hands on make up lol.

Well now that I finally have it, it does not disappoint. The Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection is a brilliant mix of golds, pinks and deep reds. Gorgeous shades that are perfect for the holiday season and I’m absolutely smitten!

Chanel Regard Signe de Chanel Quandra Eyeshadow in Harmonie du Soir (LE)
The star of the collection. It’s an amazing quad of 4 complementing shades of gold, taupe, plum-cranberry and light frosted pink. Made in the “Regard Signe de Chanel” formula the eyeshadows are embossed with a quilted pattern and CC monogram. Making it truly something special. The shadows are soft, buttery smooth with a pigmented shimmery finish. Love love love.

Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Apparence (LE)
The texture of this cream shadow is so soft and pillowy. Love the golden shimmer it adds to the eye, and makes for a perfect base or wash of colour on the lids. Can be built up to increase intensity as you wish and the lasting power is amazing.

Chanel Joues Contrast Powder Blush in Star Dust (LE)
A soft, sheer light pink with gold shimmer and sparkles. At first I thought it may be too light for my skin tone but it proves perfect for adding a nice subtle pink glow to the cheeks. 

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimers in Mystery (permanent) and Allegorie (LE)
Mystery is a lovely, creamy neutral pink that I’ve been wearing daily since I got it. Allegorie is a sheer pink with pretty sparkles that is fab for layering over lipsticks to add more oomph to your pout.
