Nothing beats getting your hands on the latest limited edition products you have been lusting over. Ever since I saw a teeny tiny photo of this Chanel eye shadow palette in a magazine I have been on the hunt. And true to form I didn’t just stop at the palette, I picked up a few other limited edition beauties as well.

This eye shadow palette (Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow limited edition palette from the Summer 2016 collection) feautures four earth tones in a surprisingly creamy consistency. Each look amazing washed over the eye on their own or they can be built up in combination to create a perfect smokey eye. The colours really make brown and hazel eyes pop.

I bought two long lasting eyeliners in ‘Sable’ and ‘Oasis’ (both limited edition colours) and boy are they long lasting. It took me two goes with a makeup remover pad and micellar water to remove Oasis and even then I felt like I still had morning-after kohl rimmed eyes a la Kate Moss the next day.

Lastly I can never go past a new shade of nail polish. Both ‘Cavaliere’ and ‘Emeraude’ have a gold sheen to them which elevates their dark tones. Chanel has recently updated their formula so that their core range of polishes includes Bioceramics and Ceramides to help improve the health and quality of your nails. For people with brittle crappy nails like me this is a huge plus.

 

So get shopping and snap these up before they sell out!
