There is something so incredibly luxurious about Chanel eyeshadows. We keep ours tucked away nicely in their protective felt cases, deprived of light and oxygen, and pray that our daughters won’t discover them.
If you came to visit and wanted to see our collection, we’d have to sneak you into our bedroom — behind a locked door — and pull them out from their secret hiding place in our bureau, underneath a stack of yoga pants. (We very cleverly selected the yoga-wear drawer to hide our precious Chanel eyeshadows because our daughters would rather give up their text messaging plans before being caught dead in their mother’s yoga pants.) (Our tank tops, however, are another story.)
The Chanel Fall 2007 collection offers a whole new dimension to luxury.
There’s two new Quadra Eye Shadows in Garden Party (light green, dark green, peach, and pink) and Sequoia (peach, burnt sienna, brown, and beige), a new Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Lotus-Cactus (soft pink and emerald green) and a new Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Jungle (forest green).
However, the highlight of this collection is the Trio Lèvres de Chanel Shiny Satin Lipgloss, a gorgeous palette of three lipgloss shades (a plum, a soft pearlized white gloss, and a sheer pink) that can be mixed into a custom color or worn alone.
Here’s what we can expect for the rest of the collection:
