The eyeshadow palette Entrelacs has some pretty useful colors but I simply had to pass because I purchased the travel makeup palette that Nordstrom sold for Anniversary and it was altogether a better value and also came with five neutral eyeshadow shades.
But here now, see, New Moon is just beautiful!
I chose Érable out of the four eyeliners because it seems to me like the shade I had hoped Ambre Doré to be. It turned out to be bronzy and worked really well with a bronze-themed eye. I swatched it below, next to two other recent eyeliners releases from the same line from Chanel. This is not for any other reason but for me to remember that I already own them! (And by the way, Perle de Lune is still THE BEST EYELINER EVER.)

As for the blush, I've been forewarned about the glitter but when I put it on at home, I honestly didn't notice it much and I thought it didn't make it any less appropriate for day use. But funny, while I was in the car, I took a quick look at myself in the rearview mirror and when the sun hit my face, oh disco! Yes, there is glitter, and it was noticeable in the sunlight. But really, it's pretty. I felt that under normal indoor lighting it was a non-issue. All I really notice is the shade, almost like a light bronzer. Kind of reminds me of something Guerlain would make, actually. I'm a Terracotta fan (the line from Guerlain) so this shade is right up my alley.
|See, it swatches lightly! So workable, I tell you!|
