I thought my makeup heart was slowly dying or something since I hadn't coveted anything in a while. But it sang a little (more of a twitch, actually) when I saw Signe Particulier Quadra from the Chanel holiday 2015 collection. So I happily obliged.
Like many Chanel collections, "Collection Vamp Attitude" excels in color composition if their formulation is questionable to some. (I happen to like the Chanel eyeshadow formula.) I love that the typical holiday elements like gold and red are all there yet it's dark and mysterious.
Chanel Signe Particulier is basically a purple smoky quad with a gold accent. Chanel speaks of "exquisite versatility", and I think they might be on point (I enjoyed watching these videos for two very different eye looks using Signe Particulier; I was impressed to see the model actually seems to know how to put on makeup).

Then, I lotioned my arm to show better color intensity.

Every shade is fairly well-pigmented and seems to blend well. I love the color composition of this quad more than anything. Dusty purple is my all-time favorite anyway, but the whole thing just becomes a bit more special with great highlighting and accent shades tucked in together.
I still need to figure out the best way to wear Signe Particulier, but I know I am going to have a lot of fun with this unique, wearable quad. A few look posts are in order.
Thanks for looking!
Wish everyone a great weekend.
