Friday's Chanel purchases

On Friday two great events collided, pay day and Chanel's spring colour launch.... its safe to say my bank account took a battering!

I bought the limited edition eye palette 'Ombres Perlees de Chanel' (£39) shown below and the varnish 'black pearl' (£17.50)

The eye shadows are very soft and because of this go on way better with a sponge applicator so dont bother trying to use a fancy brush. The colours had a very metallic finish to them which could put some people off, it you dont like the shimmer I really recommend the spring quad too.

The white/pearl shadow makes the eyes look loads bigger and brighter and the darker colours can make a really unusual smokey eye because they are slightly green. I think the colour I might use the least is the middle purple just because I have an irrational fear of purple eye shadow, but at almost £8 a shadow I might force myself!

I love the new varnish colour, which for once has come out alright in the photo, its a dark green/grey colour, with a metallic finish. The varnishes have great hold, mine has been in almost in perfect condition since Friday! The only problem with this colour is that the whole world and its wife has bought it at Boots so we all look like twinnies!
