Happy humpday everyone! It’s Wednesday and it’s two more days to the weekend
I recently picked up few items from Chanel Spring 2014 collection. Initially not many products caught my attention but after swatching and playing around, I gave up and picked up few items from the collection.
If you have been following our instagram, I have posted this picture few days ago and here are my picks from the spring collection:
So in this post, I am showing some swatches and a quick review on the eyeshadow quad in Quadrille and the creme blush in Intonation.
Quadrille is a limited edition blush released this season. I am thrilled to see a non baked Chanel eyeshadow in Singapore! Usually I would need to order online to get a non baked formula and now I can get it right here in Singapore.
The shades are as follow:
- Top left: greyish purple
- Top Right: Soft pink with soft shimmer
- Bottom Left: Salmon pink with a satiny finish
- Bottom Right: Dark plum
The eyeshadow has a nice quality – it has the same quality as my other Chanel’s non baked eyeshadow version. It has quite smooth texture but the pigmentation of these 4 shades varies. I find that the greyish purple shade and the soft pink is not as pigmented as the salmon pink shade and the dark plum. Nevertheless the quality of the quad is not disappointing as I love the shade combination and I find that the texture is workable.
Now onto the second product for this post; it’s Chanel Creme de La Blush in Intonation.
This blush is also a Limited Edition item from Chanel Spring 2014 Collection. Intonation is a warm peachy pink. I love the hue for my “everyday blush” kind of blush. The color might look too vibrant in the pan but when swatches and blended, it looks very wearable.
Like other Chanel cream blushes, Intonation has a silky smooth texture. When swatched, I can feel that despite being a cream blush, you can actually feel that it is powdery when applied to my skin. You may read my thoughts on Chanel Cream Blush when it was launched last fall.
In this picture, I have a swatch comparison between intonation, revelation and presage.
In my opinion, revelation leans more towards peachy pink and intonation has more pink hues in it. On the other hand, presage is a true coral.
Here’s how intonation looks like when it is blended.
Overall I am happy with my purchase. Quadrille has a nice shade combination and the texture of the eyeshadow is smooth and the shade stays perfectly for 5 hours without primer. Intonation is a nice warm peachy pink shade which I think would work on both fair skin and deep skintone.
I will post a swatch on the nail polish in Tapage and the Chanel Glossimer in Murmure in another post.
What do you think of this collection? Has anything caught your attention?
