A healthy holiday helping of Chanel

Over a week ago I raced into the city to purchase the latest release from Chanel. I have yet to try it on myself, but let's take a gander at what I bought.

Gold, taupe, burnt cranberry and soft pink are tied together with their subtle shimmery finishes in this quad. I was taken aback (in a good way) by the orange undertones as I swatched the berry shade on my arm. Minimal elbow grease was expended during my swatch session, full opacity was reached with very little effort. The texture of the shadow is a soft powder, yet it felt creamy to the touch. I think a good primer will help to keep your look in check.

L'Impatiente for me is a stunning deep berry shade. Please hold my merlot so I can give you a proper kiss underneath the mistletoe.

A review and look will hopefully appear by next weekend.

What do you think of the rest of Chanel's Holiday 2012 collection?
