Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Temptalia posted some more pics of the holiday collections from Chanel and Guerlain...looking forward to the swatches.  Here's some eye candy for your pleasure Smiley Wink

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I am so in makeup lust with those meteor things... But I just can't bring myself to bite the bullet on it. O_O

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I posted Chanel swatches the other day in the holiday collections thread of everything but the palette.

 

Chanel's collection is stunning.

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

The nail polish is bright:

 

 

The Illusion D'Ombre- Initiation is stunning.

 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I might have to have those perles... I have teint beige but those look soo pretty... awaiting temptalia's swatches...!

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

i want that Chanel palette so badly because i only have 3,796 shades of neutrals Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

But neutrals never go out of style Smiley Wink

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Here's something I've been wondering for a while: what's the right way to use products like the perles? They look beautiful but I'm not sure whether you're supposed to sweep a brush across them or, I don't know, pick them up and rub them on your face individually.

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Oh goodness, they would be an ungodly amount of work if you were supposed to individually apply each perle colour. Nope, these are made for using a brush, the brush picks up the different colours and applies them evenly.

 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Oh okay, that makes a lot of sense! I've never seen these in person so I had no idea, thank you for clearing that up for me.

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Thanks for clearing that up NotCrocker... I thought you actually rub each one on your face. Now I feel silly for thinking that haha! 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I'm not as enthused about the lipstick or nail polish (have a bunch of those), but the palette is a great, compact collection of neutrals. The description is so alluring as well:


This limited-edition eyeshadow unveils a seductive shade spectrum for the season’s most striking eye looks. From soft beige to rich purple, matte and pearlized shadows create glamorous effects alone or offer endless opportunities for custom blending. The emblematic quilted motif of CHANEL embosses the silky shadows for an added touch of elegance.
Charming Soft beige, metallic beige, bronze khaki, bronze brown, dark matte purple

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Temptalia states Nordstrom has the above, but they do not online or in the Old Orchard location Smiley Sad

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

The Chanel Illusion D'ombre and blush for the holidays collection are available on the Nordstrom site. You just have to click on the individual product and find them, since Nordstroms doesn't list them as "new product" Smiley Happy The eyeshadow palette is not available yet.

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

For those of you on the fence on the Guerlain meteorites for this holidays, the packaging could be the determining factor. Some may find it tacky; others might love it Smiley Happy

 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Ugh, does it say Champs-Élysées around it?? That's unnecessary. I will probably buy it anyway, hahah.

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

It sure does! I still think it's quite cute Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I unfortunately don't like the packaging of the Guerlain Meteorites so I might have to pass on it.

 

But I'd definitely be all over that Chanel Palette! I just feel like Chanel made it for me coz all I ever wear as eyeshadows are those same shades in the palette! I just love love love Chanel! Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

OH.  MY.



those meteorites.........  


Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

I WANT THE BALLS! LOL Smiley Tongue 

I don't need them, but they are so pretty & the black packaging... sigh

I find their eyeshadows to be a real hit or miss, same with Chanel. Usually the quads are nice, but the LE palettes can be chalky & not very pigmented. 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Smiley Surprised

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Great balls of fire! Smiley Very Happy

Highlighted

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Also, the palette looks to be slightly lacking in pigmentation...

 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

Why do they do that?!?! I love LE palettes & shades, but if there's no pigmentation... why bother? 

The gold looks preety, but where's the pink? 

Re: Chanel and Guerlain Holiday collections more pics

It looks like the pink is under the silver shade you can barely see it.
