by request: fotd using the chanel ombres perlees palette

FACE: NARS Sheer Glow (Mont Blanc), YSL Touche Eclat (under eyes), YSL pressed powder, Tokidoki Siberia blush, YSL Metallic Colorama face highlighter

EYES: Chanel Ombres Perlees palette (pink shade on lid/brow highlight/inner corners, green shade in crease),  MAC On the Hunt superslick liner, MAC I Get No Kick eye kohl, UD Sin 24/7 shadow pencil (inner corners), MAC Lingering brow pencil, Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara

LIPS: YSL Rouge Volupte #19 Frivolous Pink

I was also wearing the Chanel Ombres Perlees palette here and here if you're interested. :) I think it's a beautiful palette - the texture of the shadows is super soft and they all have a unique, pearly/shimmery finish (if you prefer mattes, this probably isn't for you). One thing I will say about it is that it's not something I reach for every day - some days it's just too frosty for me.  But whenever I do reach for it, I'm not disappointed! :)

Hope this was helpful if you've been lemming this palette!

Thanks for reading!

  1. This is my fav item of the year (i know its only feb lol) and pretty much of all time. I heart this palette to death. Stunning look as usual x


  2. I likey! In all honesty, I think I like the idea of the palette more than I would actually like the palette. I don't go for frosty eyeshadows that much but for some reason, I can't get over how utterly amazing the palette looks! Love the green shade on you.

    P.S. Are you wearing your RV over the Burt's Bees??

  3. Thanks ladies!

    Tiffany - I don't go for frosty shadows either, which I why I don't reach for it as much as I wish I did! They also require a little more work/building up than other shadows. I don't think the dark shades are as frosty as the two on the left, though, but still are not low maintenance. I do love the look of the palette and I'm happy to have it, but I wouldn't say it's a must-have. :)

    Also, NO I FORGOT! Trust me, I remembered the second I looked in the mirror about an hour later and realized the color was gone! haha

  4. Love how you applied the eyeshadow!
