  • Chanel Collection Essentielle De Chanel Multi-Use Make-up Palette

    This palette was used during a makeover I received by a Chanel Makeup Artist, and this was my introduction to Chanel cosmetics. Previously, I had used makeup artist cosmetic lines, specifically Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier, as well as MAC. I was speechless when I saw the luminous, polished, subtle-yet-glamorous look the Chanel artist had created for me. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but I cannot get over the quality, consistency, sheen and blendability of the Chanel eyeshadows. They seem to look their best when I blend them very little, or else they get muddy and lose some of their shimmery sheen. The blush in the Naturelle palette is the best color I've ever found for my skin (I wear Chanel foundation in Shell and am a neutral blonde with blue eyes.) The lip colors are lovely, and the artist blended the deep pink with the salmon, then topped them with the shimmer gloss, and WOW! I have avoided pink lipsticks, but this was deep and rich, not at all pastel-like. My favorite local Chanel saleswoman was able to help me find the palette colors from among the regular Chanel products, so I will not have a meltdown when I run out of these wonderful shades. My only complaint is that the texture of the lip brush is not quite right for applying the lipsticks, and I prefer to use the one that is on the end of my Chanel lip pencil. I am a convert, and I am saving my pennies, because the expense will not keep me prom re-purchasing these amazing, flattering products again!
