I went to Selfridges on Saturday to check out the Byzance Collection at the Chanel counter, even though there wasn't really anything I liked from the photos I had seen so far. But as soon as I started swatching the Regard Signé de Chanel in Topkapi, I knew I had to have it.
All four eyeshadows in this quad are incredibly smooth. My favourite colours are probably the mink and the chocolate. The gold will take a bit more work to make it look good on my yellow toned skin.
Even though I bought it on Saturday, I still haven't convinced myself to use it yet. The embossing makes it almost too pretty to use. But I promised myself I wouldn't buy makeup just for the sake of collecting it - makeup is to be used.
In other news, I asked the sales associate at Chanel when the fall collection will be available at Selfridges. I was told first week of August, exclusive to Selfridges for two weeks. Pencil it in in your diary and save up now!
