Why thank you icecarmellatte for the welcome! -- and yep, that's me... I'm trying to be reserved in my Chanel purchases (and really looking forward to the holiday one anyway). I am really very pleased with the quality of what I've experimented with and purchased so far'
Also, listening to you all has been so helpful, and yet another reason why I've been a part of specktra on and off for years and years now!
Anyway, I just picked up the Prelude quad (such a wonderful set of cool neutrals, wow-- that taupe alone is phenomenal!! And there's not one dud out of the four) and a RCS in Monte Carlo, which is such a fun shade. I couldn't decide and settled on this one. I know I will be back for more as they are fab sheer color, which I love. Looking into a second quad but can't decide on one
I went to my first Chanel event this weekend, tons of fun! The mua used the Eclosion quad for a soft smokey eye (which I thought I could dupe with my MAC but now I'm not so sure; it was very lovely on my skin tone fwiw) with Ambre eye kohl, black Inimitable mascara, JC in Pink Explosion (I think he said), a pinky lip liner (forgot my face chart and this is from memory LOL) and RCS in Parfait ( gorgeous but I have so many soft pink lippies I thought I'd grab Monte Carlo for something different to purchase that day). He used, and I fell in love with, the vitalumiere aqua foundation and pinky shade of concealer (I have hereditary dark circles and this did a great job of brightening that area). It wore well throughout the evening-- first anniversary night with hubby;)
Note to self: I. Must. Stay. Away. from the skin care. Seems dangerous. As in, addictive and pricey. received a few samples of the hydra beauty serum to try out.
Thought I'd share my experience from the event in a nutshell. Although that was long-winded, no? Haha
Wow! How did I miss this post. Love Prelude and Love the Eclosion quad. I never thought of doing a smokey look with it. Will try it.
LOL I didn't notice that correlation.
