My small Chanel Haul

I woke up bright and early today - at 8 in the morning - and it's a dreary cloudy day that is greeting me. Much as I appreciate that the horrible summer heat has finally gone, I do wish there was a bit of a sun every once in a while. Guess I am never satisfied! Well, I thought, what better way to brighten up the day than look at some Chanel goodness, and so here is some stuff I picked up. Sorry about the pics, it really is cloudy here today.



Le Crayon Yeux - Precision Eye Definer - Khaki Dore



Ombre Essentielle - Vert Khakhi - soft touch eyeshadow.



The only thing I picked up from the Chanel Fall 2010 collection ( Les Contrastes de Chanel - Fall 2010).   Les 4 Ombres - Bird of Paradise - eyeshadow quad. This is a limited edition quad from an older Chanel collection. Never bought until now because I never was an eyeshadow person.  It's just recently, with other blog influences, that I have started trying them.


Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base - a concept I was totally ignorant of until very recently! Not what my makeup instructor recommended, but I think this just might work for me.

  4. You should try their other e/s..forgot its name...taupe I think..as is the quad - Enigma. Actually quads are a better option with Chanel since you are good at blending :-)

  5. Nice haul :)

    Can you tell me what an illuminating base is?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Priya, I think its because it has some kind of light-diffusing property, so your face kind of looks more radiant...but definitely not because of shimmer.

    ReplyDelete
  7. So if you have any blemishes, redness, etc., this kind of softens it all out and gives an even appearance to the skin.

    ReplyDelete
  8. BTW..the makeup instructor wasn't meant to be taken seriously. It was useful advice from a friend who is pretty good at makeup :P

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well, Ms. Itchy-Witchy....why haven't you included the prices.....???? On second thoughts, I wanna to adopt you so that I can use up all your Chanels......I will be an obedient baby........

    ReplyDelete
  10. You will be an obedient baby? And you want to adopt me? So who will be the baby - me or you??? Price on request..hehehheheheheee :P :P :P

    ReplyDelete
  11. He he .....either way, I am going to remain a baby.....you adopt me or I adopt you.........does not matter.......only what matters is your wardrobe and your Chanels.:)

    ReplyDelete
  12. My wardrobe consists of a lot of used old clothes which I will gladly gift to you..heheheheee...and the Chanels...Babies are not supposed to use makeup. Sit quietly there now!

  13. hey you chanels fan...I am glad u r getting into eye make up..trust me it is the best thing to enjoy with..quad looks beautiful..Please do the swatches:)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Its all because of you bloggers who post these fab eye makeup looks :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. hey the khaki liner looks cool but it looks somewat similar to mac pearl glide intense eyeliner in blackline.do check it out if u go to a mac store. anyway lovely post. do check out my blog too. take care

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hmm..not really, but I get the comparison :-) The MAC one is really dark and has these visible shimmers in it. I don't know how to describe this, but its more like you melt green-bronze into a colour.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Loving ur haul!!! esp the Khaki eyeliner and the bird of paradise e/s quadro - wow! oh pls do post some sort of review on the illuminating base would u pls?
    I need Chanel now :( and in Pune!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sure Gaea..just that I hope I make some sense with it. I am very very new to this :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. am sure you will! :)
    ah i keep opening the e/q quadro up there. that tealll - like the peacock's neck! (only a bit faded) but what a beauty! I am calling my folks up in Chennai, like right now and asking them to pack it up for me :p

    ReplyDelete
  20. Umm..the colours don't come out quite as bright...a bit muted from what you see on the palette. It was LE, and I don't really like brighter colours, so it was okay for me. You might want to check it out in person before you buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Heheheee...faded peacock neck :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. hmm true Radhika. Chanel is all about class and subtlety. good, so you probably just saved me some 1000s ;) [that i may just spend on MAC venomous villians or something! i so love evil ;)]

    wats LE :$

    well i imagined that peacock's neck color may fade with sun shining so bright on it :p

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oops..sorry LE = limited edition..was too lazy to type :P Heheheh..more like 2000s. I loved the MAC Venomous Villains too, though I have to admit its purely packaging love. Anything with cartoons on it :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. thku - bad at acronyms :p
    yea sorry i did mean in the multiples of 1000s he he.
    some of them are real nice - the malficent nail lacquer esp. not too tempting as u said. I am thinking of the cute Dr.Facilier mirror for his pic on it called "Iam so vain" mirror! how fitting and am I proud to be vain, lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. It is, but the colours don't come this bright..which is good for me, I prefer it that way, but I think a lot of people are disappointed by that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. ooh you mean the shadows aren't pigmented or it's just the way they are?

    ReplyDelete
  27. What I meant was the colours seem very bright in this photo, but they are actually a bit more muted..faded is the appropriate word I guess :P

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think you might get a better idea with this site:

    ReplyDelete
  29. oo thanks for the link
    i still really like the eyeshadows :P
    so pretty... *drool*
    how much does a quad come for?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Then you are just like me Rima :) I still liked the quad, in fact kind of happy its not that bright! I don't remember the exact price, but I think its around 2400. You can actually check the price of the Murano quad reviewed by Rati some time when you are there..it will be the same.

    ReplyDelete
  31. oh yeah i'll check it out there
    chanel... sigh.. when will i get my hands on something so luxurious!! :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hehehehe..we will all wait for Rati's next giveaway...and maybe bribe her too :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. loved your Chanel haul Rads, am still drooling... pls do an eye look when you can, would love to see and may inspire me to try some eye makeup too..I like subtle in eye colours too :)

    Renuca

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hehehe...me no think my eye look would inspire anybody unless its to take a belan and throw it at me, but I will do it some time when I get it right :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wonder why you are not able to comment other than as anonymous..what other ID did you try?

    ReplyDelete
  36. rads if i show you my older pics you would throw belan and other hard stuff on me i was soooo bad in doing eyemakeup but when i did in front of you guys it was then when i got so much confidence :) and i thanks a lot to the platform i got :) i am now confident or say not very confident but yeah i have courage to do it more often:) u should try with ur khakhi color :) all over lid wowowow i can imagine how beautiful it will look:) me telling hubby abt the prices yest only but i think i will have to wait for some more time :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes I did use the Khaki shadow that way only Rashmi..but posting, no I don't think I am good enough :D The khaki shadow..wanted to tell you..I think you might find its unavailable in the shop right now. I don't know how I got it, but apparently my SA was telling me that it was the only piece available here.

    ReplyDelete
  38. As in, I think Chanel has not done a proper official launch yet...not sure though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. ohh :( i so much wanted it after seeing it on rati's post :( i hope i will coz i dont have perfect khakhi color except for Sumptuos olive ... i will try although and as i said i will buy next month only :) by then i might be able to get this i hope :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I saw the swatch in the link you had mentioned to Rima.. It's gorgeous :) Love the eye pallete

    I shd try the illuminating base.. Sounds intersting :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. I guess we Indians love these kind of colours..most of the reviews I read in other blogs sounded disappointed. The illuminating base, try it out a counter sometime, and use a non-matte foundation over it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ah, a little Chanel makes every day great! :) Haha. Love the look of your new things! =)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hey can you post how the illuminating base worked on u?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi Aarthi...I have just bought it. I will try to do a post some time ...maybe next week?

    ReplyDelete
  45. The thing is I havent used it properly, sufficiently long enough to do a review..so I didnt want to sound too ignorant :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hey Rads, we are all peace loving people here, no one's gonna throw belan (not even a virtual one) at you, on the contrary you'll probably get alot of constructive feedback on how to do the look better.. anyways do it when ur ready Rads, will wait :)
    Abt the id thingie, not sure what I tried in past but Im ok being anon ;)

    Renuca

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yup I am sure about the "loads" heheheheee. Look??? I am going to wash my face...put my moisturizer, this base..and we'll have a contest..let's see who picks the identifies the post-base photo right :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  48. That quad is so.... fab Rads:-)

    ReplyDelete
  49. It is, isn't it. The yellowish colour in it though..it shows up as almost invisible though..heehee...and has bigger shimmer in it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi, Can you please tell me whats the price on Sheer Illuminating Base?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hii Vinitha..its Rs. 2400..try it out at the counter before buying :-)

    ReplyDelete
