Although Chanel’s holiday collections are never my favourite releases from the brand, I was drawn in by the promo image paring bright pinks with a smoky brown eye.
Tweed Fuchsia blush (£31) is a deep very cool toned pink.
It looks intense and very bright in the pan/when swatched, however it does apply more naturally when used with a brush, although on my very pale skin I apply it very lightly. I also picked up Tweed pink (not from the holiday collection).
I have swatched them together to compare the intensity of the colour.
The colours are not necessarily unique although I will say these last extremely well and I have no colour fade at all.
Here are the ingredients:
The Ombres d’Eau Fluid Eyeshadow (£21.50) in shade Splash is a beautiful medium taupe.
Although I use to have quite a few of the Fluid Eyeshadows, I had forgotten how quickly they dry. I do not have enough time to blend it before it sets, my friend suggested using a flat brush to pick up the colour and layering to get a more even application, and whilst this method is a fast improvement I still feel that the edges look a bit patchy.
I really did want to get the Tentation Cuivree Quad, however I wasn’t impressed with the fall quad eye shadow formula so common sense prevailed in the end.. that's not to say I won’t succumb at some point..
