Today a little post to tell you all about the Chanel palette from yesterdays haul!
Okay, so technically it isn't mine because it was a gift for my mom (in a huge haul), but I couldn't resist photographing and swatch it real quick for you guys.
This little palette is called 'Ombres Contraste Duo' in color 30 Bleu - Tendre.
I love Chanel packagings. I was obsessed with Chanel for quite some time, it was the only high-end make-up I bought. Nowadays my obsession has cooled down a little, because I discovered so many other brands (like you can see every day on the blog).
This is the classic Chanel box as you know it: black with the logo in white. It's so simple and yet so sophisticated. Truly a box that should be in everyones make-up collection.
The inside of the palette houses two pans with the colors and two little applicators. One sponge applicator and one with a little brush. The brush is actually fine to use, it's soft and takes on a good amount of product. So for girls that haven't got any eye brushes yet, this will work too.
Because I almost have exams there are no looks in the posts, just swatches. But pretty swatches! I absolutely love the light blue color. It has a pearly, satin shine. The darker color is less pearly, and even looks a bit matte. It's also not really blue, it has more of a grey hue. But they perfectly complement each other.
For a look with this duo I would go for the lightest color in the inner corner (for about 3/4th of your lid) of your eyes and the darker in the outer and crease. You just have to blend the two colors well in the middle part, and voila: a quick but fresh look!

I wouldn't have picked these colors myself, because I never really gave such light colors a chance. My palettes mostly exist out of darker colors like this dark blue one. But when I swatched the light blue color I fell in love. That pearly shine, so pretty. I need a light blue color like this too!
What do you think about these colors?
