It’s time of the year again when Chanel releases the beautiful holiday collections! When I stepped into Chanel Beauty ION Boutique, It was hard to limit myself to not buy many many things from the collection. And finally here I am with my two items purchased from the Holiday Collections 2015 – Vamp Attitude. I picked Signe Particulier Eyeshadow Quad and Gold Sparkle Nail Coats.
Let’s talk about Chanel Signe Particulier,
this palette reminds me of Harmonie du Soir (click for review!) and Topkapi. All these 3 palette have similarities in color and the beautiful embossing reminds me of how close they are.
On the colors here:
Top Left: a velvety soft pink with silver shimmers
Top Right: Satin taupe with a hint of grey
Bottom Right: golden metallic shade
Bottom Left: a deep plum shade with matte finish
On the formulation of the colors, I have to say that this is not Chanel’s best formula. Out of 4 colors here, I find that the gold shade has better pigmentation compared to the other two. The taupe and the highlighter shade is somewhat dry and is lacking pigmentation. I like how the gold turned out on my eyes, it’s not as sparkling as I thought it would be, and the gold is very wearable.
Onto the look of this palette, my lovely friend and cousin (@yreginamakeup) did this look for me with this palette.
It’s rather hard to create a smokey eye look with this palette. The plum shade does not really pops out on my eyes and we had to layer the shade many times to get the color intensity we wanted.
Well in conclusion, I would say that Signe Particulier may not have the best quality compared to other Chanel quads. The shades may look beautiful inside the pan but the color intensity is rather disappointing this time. Fallout seems to be fine on my case, I didn’t see much falllout during the application. But if you’re a make up collector, this piece is certainly hard to miss! The beautiful embossed interlocked Chanel logo makes it almost impossible to miss this.
Hope you enjoy the post! Tell me what do you think of this in the comment sections below 😉
