Chanel Les 4 Ombres 274 Codes Élégants and Rouge Allure 175 Ardente
Yes, it is still too early to talk about a spring makeup collection and I may have initially thought this particular collection looked rather mundane. However, I was totally won over after seeing Sabrina(of The Beauty Look Book)'s swatches. I picked up two items both in warmer colors. Which is quite unusual for me, but lately I have been wearing warmer shades more comfortably and wanted to add more to my current collection.
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow 264 Codes Élégants
Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour 175 Ardente
The colors are so pretty and the performance is one of the best that I've seen in Chanel's recent offerings. I know that not everybody is a fan of Chanel Les 4 Ombres formulation (it tends to vary on a quad by quad basis). You wouldn't have to compromise between colors and formulation this time, because all shades in Codes Élégants are very pigmented and wear beautifully. Rouge Allure Ardente is a warm youthful red with an excellent semi-sheer formula. It feels thin and comfortable on my lips and stays that way. The color fades away gradually leaving a natural stain behind. This is a perfectly fresh red for spring. I will do a separate look post featuring these two in the upcoming week.
Happy weekend, everyone!
