That link is very dangerous to open. I heard my wallet screaming in pain from the other room.  Thats one of the best swatches of the highlighter I've seen. Unless she did some major buffing to get rid of glitter or too much frosty sheen then it looks like a winner. I don't want to put much time into a product just to make it work or look ok on me. Her swatch is looks so lovely I think the highlighter wants to come live me.

 

The quad swatches looked better also. Its been a long time since I've used Chanel e/s. I agree a lot of the quads do look rather boring and maybe thats why I haven't given them much thought. But you guys have a point about that it isn't about how it looks in the pan but how it all comes together to enhance your eyes and your overall look when you wear it.

 

I need to plan an entire afternoon to go play in the cosmetics at Nordies. I want to look at the Armani quads also. Kate wasn't sure how those stripes were going to work out. There is also a green YSL quad I want to see in person. It looks so pretty online but could be a bit too shimmery. I don't want to fool with ordering them when I'm so unsure.

I fighting the urge to go back for the highlighter. From the reviews I've read, it seems to be a 'must-have'.

post #306 of 939

Did it look very gold/yellow irl though? Even Pearl Glow from a couple of years ago was too gold for me, that's the only thing holding me back.....also how does it compare to Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel from Holiday 2011 (color-wise...I know that one is pretty flat looking)?

Wish I hadn't looked at her swatch of the blush. I wasn't interested in it until I saw that. I still think it looks a little too apricot/ orange for my complexion, but it's way pretty in that photo.

 

At the moment, I'm pretty much convinced on Envoutante and Merveille. Hey, that's hardly anything at all, right? So I can clearly afford to go so much more crazy...

lol.gif You are in trouble. Resistance is futile.  Yeah, I have my eye on a YSL palette & there were a couple in it that is just a tad too glittery for me but I loved the colors.

I think that I see enough pink base in it for it to work.  At first, I thought it looked a lot like a MAC blush (can't remember the name) that I bought & hated it on me. Mine should be here I think today, so I will let you guys know.

:D :D :D :D :D Thanks Shadowaddict!  I didn't do annnnny buffing..I just barely blended with my finger :D 

post #310 of 939

since prelude has been on my wishlist forever and the new quad looks lovely too i would love to see comparison between these two 

post #311 of 939
I wore the blush and highlighter today. Both are beautiful. I wore my Nars tinted moisturizer and so with that and the highlighter and the Laura Mercier setting powder if I couldn't get a glow then, something is seriously wrong with me. lol.gif I use the highlighter down my nose and Notorious on the sides of my nose and so I got that thinner nose I've always wanted. The blush is a very pretty apricot that's not as scary as it may look in the pan. It's really soft and blendable, as with most Chanel blushes.

I took another look at the collection today and I decided I'm happy with just the blush and highlighter.
post #312 of 939

Sorry, my order does not come until tomorrow.

 

Shontay, I bet it is just lovely on you. I'm sure if you like it, I will too ;)

post #313 of 939

RAV L'Eclatante looks a bit yellow pink no? Not blue-based.

post #314 of 939

Resistance and  Futile should be names of Chanel lippies, wait Futile was a Spring 2010 Glossimer, they are on to us ....

L'Eclatante is definitely more yellow based.

I love to see the comparison too! I think it looks more pigmented and frosty than LSdC. Pearl Glow doesn't have much colour on me, the colour comes mainly from the fine light gold shimmers. Is Raffinement warmer than Intuition? Did you say you like Raffinement very much? Sorry I have not been keeping up with the thread lately and I try my best. :p I'm thinking if my stash needs a brown quad.

 

Since L'Eclatante is a yellow based pink and I don't like the formula but it looks gorgeous on the promo pic, I'm happy to pass.

post #318 of 939

I'm still not sure if my order shipped yet. I hope I get it this week.

post #319 of 939

Yeah me too. I think I will pass - yellow-based pink never look good on me.

post #320 of 939
I took pictures of my highlighter before I used it for the first time. You can see how it varies between light pink and yellow gold.

Beautiful! eyelove.gif Thank you!!

post #322 of 939

Here ya go.

 

 

Fantasque - A soft slight baby ballet pinked nude

 

 

L Eclatante - A vibrant/bright warm kinda vintage rose pink

 

 

La Favorite - Gorgeous kinda vivid slight pinked coral

 

 

 

Frivole - Beautiful warm natural flush pinked peachy peach. LOVE it on! More pink on than it looks in the pan. Very very soft & pretty.

 

 

Frivole blush swatch at very top. Looks true to color in this pick, looks darker peach in the others below, but its not that dark.

bottom - Santal liner left, Espresso right

 

 

Santal el left, Espresso right. Santal is exactly as I thought it would be. Its a warmer bronzey brown & beautiful! Exactly what I wanted.

 

 

Fracas looks like a color combination of both La Favorite & L Eclantante lipsticks

 

I love.gif all of it!

Thanks elegant-one! I need to go back for Fantasque
post #326 of 939

 Well, it mutes them out & then I end up with a pretty nude with slight pink cast. I would have liked a bit more oomph to the color, but I still like it. Saran Wrap lip people *cough* will really like it noworry.gif

 

You're welcome.

post #328 of 939

I find it shows up on me more some days than others, but I think my lip pigmentation does funny things based on pH or something! It is a different kind of shade for Chanel though, I think.

post #329 of 939

We can always just steal Shypo's or Michelle's lips girlhaha.gif

post #330 of 939

Works for me. Which one do you want? lol.gif
