Chanel Autumn '10 Collection
The new Autumn collection from Chanel is due to be released on August 13th. Although I haven't been as excited by this as the Guerlain collection, I have been eyeing up the palette and eyeshadows as a few of the American bloggers started to post swatches on their blogs.
I am undecided about whether to go for the Enigma quad or for the two single eyeshadows; Taupe gris and Verte Khaki. After seeing Gaia at The Non-Blonde's swatches of Taupe gris and Verte Khaki I'm even more confused. There are too many overlapping shades to justify or even want all of them, in fact I think two of the eyeshadows in the quad seem very similar (see Karlasugar's swatches here). However, these are the sorts of sludgy, dirty colours that make me weak at the knees! Add in a murky purple to the quad and it certainly makes a tempting purchase. Talking of purples, not much has been mentioned about the Cassis waterproof pencil but I've been very taken with the swatches. After missing out on MAC Designer purple, I'm lusting after this colour.
The nail polish Paradoxal will be a big hit I'm sure. Also, as part of this collection there will be three new Joues Contrast blush shades and three new Coco Rouge lipsticks. The colours look nice enough but there's nothing really grabbing me. I still haven't tried any of the Coco lipsticks but Mademoiselle has been on the list for a while and I think I'd rather get that before I consider any of the newer shades.
Do you have your eye on anything particular from this collection or are you waiting to see it in person? If anyone knows what these will be priced I'd be keen to hear.
