    Oh boy This is where trying too hard to be artsy clashes with real life. It's fine for runway, but it doesn't project beautiful at all. Isn't the whole purpose to make me want to go buy everything...& this does not.

    Yes, I always thought makeup was produced to make us (feel) beautiful... thank you, I totally agree with you

Neapolitis was literally my first Chanel eye palette because for years so many of their palettes ran warm. The current new palettes kind of repeat her older creations. Although I really like the look of the upcoming fall palettes-- that cool neutral one, though I am sure, boring for many, will be a staple for me, I wonder if Pica is running out of ideas. Or maybe they are trying for a younger edgier audience, maybe not that great a strategy because Chanel is really about classic and quality. To me, Lisa Eldridge kind of personifies Chanel. Though I have not been that interested in Lancome, or her creations for them, I wonder what she would do with Chanel. Depending on contractual obligations, I feel that would be the right move for everyone. I also feel that Chanel, instead of going edgy, could go towards healthier ingredients, as Lisa is doing in her own posts on her personal page. I could not use the new Chanel body oil, for example, because alcohol is so high up on the ingredient list. An upgrade along those lines would appeal more than edgy.

    NO WORDS. When I think of Chanel I think of classic, tasteful and elegant. WTH is that pic and why is this woman still in charge?

    I'm actually looking forward to this palette , I think it will make a great basic and it's more neutral/cool , I have enough warm browns , it will pair well with the Candeur et Expérience quad which I love.

    I ordered the blush which should be here tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I want the es quad, but would like to see swatches first.

    Just got my blush & tried it on. It's a very, very pretty sweet ballet pale warm rose pink. I really love it on. The case at least on this blush has changed to a matte black. Not sure I like this one over the usual case.

    I think the matte case is just for this matte collection. It is a really pretty JC!

    I may be biased because of my ingredient issues, and I didn’t really play with it since I’m returning, but the two top colors were not overly appealing to me. I would wait until you can see it in person.

    The ES is looking less cool than in earlier pics. More interested in the blush at this point.

    I got a call that the fall collection is in at Nordies. I did see it on the website earlier anyway but it was nice that my SA followed up with me since I had asked. I still don't think that matte quad will work out but I guess I'll go check it out soon. I just don't know if I'm in the mood for shades like that right now. I guess I can wait since it looks permanent.

The SA told me that there will be Shower Gel (=Hair Shampoo at the same time) and Body Milk for all three of them. I'm looking forward to it.
    Enjoy all three!

    And they are all permanent
