I went to the Chanel counter to pick up some makeup from the Fall Collection (finally it’s arrived in Australia!), and the lovely SA showcased the upcoming Les Aquarelles De Chanel Collection to me. They had a tester available for preview only and the collection will be for sale some time next month in Australia.
The star product of the collection has to be the Ombres Tissées Iridescent Effects Eyes in Beiges for me. Created in the image of the Haute Couture Collection, it takes on a fine knit texture of silvery, golden and pinkish tones of beige. I couldn’t wait till next month so I quickly snapped some pictures using my Iphone at the shop. So please excuse the poor quality of the pictures for this post

Although it’s meant for the eyes (by the sound of its name), I would much prefer to use it as a face highlighter. Quickly swiped the product on my face at the shop.
My initial impression: Don’t be discouraged by the super sparkly finish shown in the swatch. When applied with a fluffy brush and softly swept over the cheekbone, it gives a very youthful soft luminous glow that gleams under light – there wasn’t any visible flecks of silver glitters on my face. The beige undertone blended into the skin beautifully without looking frosty. I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
FYI, Ombres Tissées Beiges will retail for AUD$100.
