Chanel Aurora Spring 2008 Collection

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!

    I’ve never tried it but Tigi Bedhead do a teal eyeshadow – it’s a shade I love too, although it’s pretty difficult to find.
    The tigi one is around £7-10 depending which webbie you’re on.
    Your blog is awesome, by the way!

    Hey Chica

    Thanks a lot for you comment & your compliment!

    Now years ago I managed to pick up some Tigi Make up at the Clothes Show but I haven’t seen any around since then. I am going to have a look at Ebay and see if I can find it!
