I finally managed to catch up with the Chanel Venise collection. I was generously gifted the Murano quad by a friend after being unable to purchase it at an unmanned Chanel counter in London, and today I had a proper look at the rest of the counter in John Lewis in Cambridge (where the sales assistant was charming and helpful.) I also picked up a paint pot (cream eyeshadow base) in Delft from MAC to wear underneath the Murano. Although this quad has much better pigmentation than older Chanel quads, the Delft really helps to intensify the cool blue greens.
From left to right MAC Delft paint pot, Chanel Murano eyeshadow quad, Gondola nail polish, Clandestine rouge allure lipstick. Gondola is gorgeous - a deep bright plum with red sparkly shimmer. It's redder and sparklier than NARS Tokaido Express nail polish, for those interested in both. As ever, Chanel nail polishes are a dream to apply - I'm wearing it on my toes right now. Clandestine lipstick looks quite brown in the tube but morphs into a browned plum/rose on my lips, and is very autumnal and flattering. The contrast of the (mostly) warmer lipstick shades in this collection with the very cool and crystalline eyeshadow look is very interesting, and I think it works well. The quad really does remind me of Murano glass.
