Chanel Holiday 2010 - Les Tentations de Chanel
I had a quick look at the collection on Friday, but didn't buy anything. The chocolate brown and pink shades in the Tentation Cuivree eyeshadow quad have a lot of shimmer/sparkle in them, which put me off the quad. I did like the look of Splash Ombre D'Eau though (a cool taupe liquid shadow). The Tweed Fuchsia blusher is a very pretty bright pink colour, but I don't like the shimmery overspray on the Tweed blushes, so won't buy them (I typically don't buy oversprayed products, I would much rather be able to see the colour and texture I'm actually getting when I buy something).
I didn't care much for the lip products; both the Rouge Cocos were too light for my taste. The Pink Pulsion Glossimer gloss is pretty, but swatched sheerly on my hand. I don't think I could build it up to the bright pink in the promotional image without it feeling too sticky for me.
To approximate this look, I'd use Rouge Bunny Rouge Bejeweled Skylark eyeshadow, Kevyn Aucoin Liquifuchsia creamy moist glow (blush) and Tom Ford Pure Pink lip color.
