Stopped at the Chanel counter and picked up some more stuff. I bought a backup of Calypso. I was undecided on whether I should get a backup or not. But I think I will use it a lot. It reminded me of an orange version of Pleasing Glossimer. My favorite pink gloss. I think it is the shimmer flecks. I'm on my Pleasing backup already and wish I had bought a second backup. I'm pretty warm toned so I think I will use Calypso a lot. I also bought the eyeshadow duo. I thought I would pass. I have Prelude as my neutral quad but I think it's looking a little too cool nowadays. In fact, I told the Chanel MA last week that I was wearing it before my makeover and she said "No! You were wearing blue eyeshadow!" I thought she was nuts but I wore it the next day and it was looking really gray. I think a warmish neutral might work. (or maybe that is just my way of justifying it. )
I also got the other 2 nailpolishes and the peche cuive??? eyeliner. I forgot to ask the MA how to use this. I figured I get more ideas. But I think it may look nice as a warmer alternative to khaki platine. Oh and the SA threw in a mini glossimer. A different one than I got last week - Plaiser!

I did have a nice dinner for the anniversary :-). And then soon a vacation south :-).
Prettyaddicted, thanks for the swatches!
I think now I'm almost sure the summer bronzer wouldn't really work on me seeing how sheer it looked on the swatches. Too bad because I loved the design :D. My list is slowly diminishing for this collex.
I can't believe you guys are talking about Dior. I totally caved and bought the new collection including the orange gloss. Don't know why I needed this after getting Calypso. The only thing is. . . I didn't see those cream/liquid eyeshadows I read about on a few blogs. I asked a few SAs and they didn't know anything about them. I thought they came with this collection.
BTW - the Dior MA complimented me on my eye look and asked which brand it was and I said, "Chanel". Boy, I really do things backwards. I just got the summer collection and after neglecting the spring collection I've worn the spring collection for 2 days straight now and I kind of want to wear it tomorrow too. For some reason, the colors just look right now. They looked too light before which is strange since the weather has gotten cooler again. I was starting to regret purchasing that quad and now I love it. I wore the Envolee quad with Horizon blush and my "custom" Bagatelle/Calypso glossimer mix.
