Les Aquarelles de Chanel~Ombres Tissées, Pink Cloud and Vanités quad

Les Aquarelles de Chanel collection has landed at Bergdorfs. It's a very pretty and shimmery collection. The main palette is the Ombres Tissées Beiges. I haven't had the heart to swatch this baby yet. There is a shimmery overspray that disappears with use (Front Row Beauty has tester pic and swatches here). It's labeled as an eye shadow palette and comes with a sponge applicator but the colors do lend themselves to be used as a face highlighter.

Another piece from this collection is the Joes Contraste blush in Pink Cloud. This shade does not really impart any color on my face but gives it a nice highlight.

The Chanel boutique that I visited did not have the Ombres Tissees or Pink Cloud but they did have a few eye shadows and quads that had been previously released in Europe only. I picked up Fauve and Twilight (pics to come in another post), along with the Vanités quad.

Hope to post swatches soon.

I am sad to say that I skipped this highlighter and blush. And I'm addicted to JC blushes...but the lack of color from both gave me a sad. However the Vanites quad. Well. Now I'm regretting not getting it after seeing your pictures. I can't wait to see your swatches! You might push me over the edge and make me buy it!

@Rei Thank you! Can't wait to see your future purchases :)

@Vanity-Fashionista Yes, I do believe it will be released worldwide.

@Elvira I didn't think I would fall for another purple quad, but the top left color is so pretty. Will try to post swatches soon!

Looking forward to the eye shadow swatches! That lower right-hand pinky/peachy/duochrome looks like it could be amazing.
