New Launch: Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Palettes 2014

New Launch: Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Palettes 2014

When you’re salivating over makeup, half the time you’re really just salivating over the brand name: all too often, the products themselves are disappointing after-thoughts. “Here! Try this pretty makeup! Ignore the fact that it doesn’t work. Isn’t the label impressive?!”

Not so with Chanel, who enjoy the prestige of being, you know, Chanel, while also putting out some of the highest quality, most beautiful makeup in the industry.

I saw these new Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Palettes and flipped: THEY ARE SO GORGEOUS.

In Love With Amala Beauty (Plus, Enter to Win Amala on Facebook and Instagram!)

In Love With Amala Beauty (Plus, Enter to Win Amala on Facebook and Instagram!)

It’s rare that I’m wowed by a beauty brand. It’s even rarer when I spend my own money on products from that brand. (I mean, have you seen my beauty closet? Are you familiar with how many products cross my desk every month? So many. So very, very many.)

I have an entire shelf solely devoted to expensive, well-reviewed moisturizers from brands like La Prairie, Shiseido, Restorsea, Orlane, and Chanel. Yet, I recently dropped $116 of cold hard cash on Amala Advanced Brightening Emulsion, which I discovered last year and which my finicky, acne-prone, ruddy skin simply ADORES.

If that’s not an endorsement of how much I love Amala and believe in the efficacy of their products, I don’t know what is.

Chanel Haute Couture Show 2014-2015 Makeup and Hair

Here’s your daily pretty: close-ups from the 2014-2015 Chanel Haute Couture Show earlier this week in Paris.

Now, I’m hardly the type of person to say, “Ooh! A mohawk! My fave!” But there was something about these photos–the soft, ethereal feel of the makeup combined with the toughness of the updos–that I found so compelling.
