Chanel Byzance Collection Topkapi Quad

Well hello there little Chanel palette that fell into my handbag at Selfridges last week!  How you doin'?

What's that?  You're shy?  Don't want to show off for the nice Get Lippie readers?


See?  Nothing to be scared of!  You're beautiful.  Oh yes, you are.  And, with your selection of metallic browns, taupes and golds, oh me, oh my, we're going to make some sexytimes sweet, sweet swatches together.

What's that?  I didn't catch you from your best side?  Shall we try again?

You're so creamy.  So pigmented, so ... rich.  So wonderful that if all Chanel palettes were like you, I'd buy all y'all.  Okay, your dark brown is on the matte side, and your gold is a little ... sparkly, but hey, your bronze is so yummy and your taupe, why, it's so ... taupe. Taupe-r than the taupest thing I can imagine.  And that, my lovely palette is very taupe indeed.  Oh yes ...

Dear Chanel, please make more like this.  No more dry, baked, unpigmented eyeshadows.  They're annoying. Just try not to make the next one cost £37 too. Thank you.

This has been a public service announcement.

  4. hahaha, ok firstly it looks very hot on your lids and has convinced me to go and buy one immediately, and also most of the post reminded me of the way i occasionally talk to my make up...which is probably bad. xxx

  5. Oooh, love love love. Want. Oh little Chanel palette, won't you be mine?

  6. Hello little Chanel palette, won't you be mine?

  7. Haha, love this post! I know when I talk to a certain makeup product I must really love it. Btw, I still don't understand why Chanel makes different textures and shapes of their quads for different markets - surely it must be more expensive? x

  8. Love it! I talk to my new makeup on occasion, too. Especially the pretties like this one.

    I've held off on Topkapi thus far, but with each new post I'm finding my resolve not to buy wavering more and more. I'm hoping I can hold out until they are sold out, but I'm beginning to wonder if I will make it.

    Your eyes look amazing! I think yours are the first I've seen actually wearing the shadows. Makes the quad even more enticing.

    Thanks for the post!

  9. Love this post! Really made me chuckle! Steph x

  10. Oooh what a sexy little number this is!

  11. have it and love it... home run on this one for Chanel

  12. I thought it looked *OK* in the palette, but on? I LOVE it!!


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
