The final pieces I picked up from the Spring collection were the shadow duo and limited edition shade of Le Blush Creme de Chanel.
The Rose Majeur duo (£31) contains a softly shimmered peachy/pink and a matte smoky plum. I have to apply the lighter shade very softly otherwise it takes on a coral hue which looks off with my

collection (that I am getting the most use out of) are the Quadrille palette and Impulsion Illusion d'Ombre.
I bought these from Boots
