For Spring 2008, Chanel have produced a gorgeous cool collection, full of rich navy and blues:
There is the Limited Edition Quad, 4 Fleurs, which contains pastel, iridescent shades:
The blue nail polish, which is utterly enticing is Blue Satin, a deep, shimmery blue-black. There is also a pastel blue, pink & white which are all limited edition.
After seeing the makeover Karen did with the quad, Entrancess Blusher (a rose-brown blusher, also new) I was truly suckered in.
Cool blues, without any hits of warmth are just my kind of thing. Yet – I can’t help but hold back from dropping £36.50 for a quad. The most enticing shade of the quad is the darkest blue – I can’t help but think of the other three pale shades as bland.
But then again, I am dying for a Guerlain quad because I am totally in love with the teal shade:
See the one in the top, left hand corner. That dark teal shade is arcadia defined for me. I love blue and I love green, what can better then a true mix of the two?! The black in the bottom corner is also very sexy….but anyway I digress. The point is, I could buy a quad just beacause I love one colour in it…
I noticed that Chanel has already made a very similar quad to the Aurora Blue, in Blue Notes:
I am finding it difficult to see any major differences in the two, although the quality may differ greatly.
If I am strong enough I am going to avoid getting this quad, instead indulging my Boots Card Points on this YSL collection instead. Besides, the swirly blushers and eye pens are limited edition, so I can take my time buying the Aurora Quad.
P.S. If anyone knows of true teal eyeshadow, like the gorgeous one in the Guerlain Quad let me know!
