Chanel Harmonie du Soir Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel Harmonie du Soir Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) contains four shades, which are described as “bronze gold, taupe, violet-plum, and pink.” The formula of this palette is different than Chanel’s usual quads, but the palette is much like Topkapi, which came out in July 2011.

MAC Fascinating + Smolder Eye Kohls

MAC Marilyn Monroe Eye Kohls ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of two permanent shades: Fascinating (intense matte white) and Smolder (intense black). If you purchase from the collection, the pencils you’ll receive come in a glossy black box and are packaged in a glossy black pencil, compared to the matte black packaging of the permanent shades. They cost exactly the same, and while online is listing these as 0.05 oz. (or 1.45g), my pencils say 0.048 oz. (or 1.36g), making them the same size as the permanent ones as well.

When applied dry, it has a more subdued finish–less of a sheen–than it does when used damp, where the frosted sheen comes forth. Urban Decay Last Call is redder, less purple. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse is darker, more purple, less of a sheen. Le Metier de Beaute Fig is darker, more burgundy. MAC Plum Dressing is a smidgen darker and less frosted. NARS Caravaggio is lighter, more purple.
