Chanel A/W16 Beauty // Coppery Reds

Hi there,

When I saw the first pictures of the Chanel A/W16 beauty drop, my jaw quite literally, well, dropped. Full of reds and coppery undertones, the collection was not my usual style, but extremely beautiful all the same, and I decided to go check it out in stores. It did not disappoint. I knew the reds would make my green/grey eyes pop and when the sales assistant tried the eyeliner in 'Eros' on me, I just knew I wouldn't be leaving empty handed. Two minutes later, and I walked out of Arnotts with a bag full of new beauty booty and a slightly lighter purse. Here's what I got.

Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Candeur et Experience:

Wow. What drew me to this was the fact that it is Chanel's first all-matte eyeshadow palette. The colour payoff is fantastic with very little fallout, and the shadows blend like a dream. The red looks a little scary in the pan but is actually quite wearable, and as it is a slightly darker red, works flawlessly with the browns in the palette to make a coppery red smoky eye that could take you from day to night. LOVE.

Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Eros:

This is also a little scary when you first see it. Upon seeing it for the first time, my sister thought it was a lipliner not an eyeliner! Added into the tightline and waterline, the liner makes my eyes really stand out, without making my eyes look red, always a possibility with red and pink toned eye products. The product also stays in place for about 5-6 hours, which is pretty impressive for an eyeliner!

I've filmed a little tutorial using the palette for the first time, so if you want to see me try it out, check out my new video!

Here's the finished look, let me know what you think!
