I said quite often I was not going to get the Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow palette. In fact, I went to the local counter multiple times to swatch it, and decided everytime that yep! I wasn’t about to get it. I had my eye on the Rose Tourbillon blush instead (which I found remarkably similar to Pink Explosion so really, I couldn’t justify getting that either!) But yet…
Erm… let’s just call it a moment of weakness ;)
Gotta admit its pretty no? Just a couple more pictures below.
From my recollection, the Ombres Perlees de Chanel palette is sold out at many local Chanel counters. It retailed here for RM190 if memory serves me right.
I picked this up at Changi airport in a moment of weakness, as I have said but the price escapes me for now. There were lots left in Changi Terminal 2 duty free if you’re interested.
I can tell you from previous swatchings that the texture is very interesting. It feels creamy but applies like a powder and it contains silicones, hence the texture. The colour is sheer so those who like pigmented colours can just close your window now :) But the texture is quite pretty and shimmery.
I’m actually wearing it today experimentally and yep, as I expected, application is going to take a while to get used to and the colour is on the sheer side but I adore how it looks! So I guess I did something right :)
So there. Something I said I would not get. But I guess I was very wrong but I’m glad its working out anyway :P Ever been in a similar situation? :P
Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel eyeshadow palette is limited edition for Spring 2011 and retailed in Malaysia at RM190 (mostly sold out at counters). Purchased from Changi Airport, Singapore (price forgotten).
