I'm a woman with no self-restraint. I have been shivering with anticipation over the new Chanel Illusion D'Ombres since news of them came out. When the make-up bloggette mentioned that they were out in Singapore, I knew I had to go down town to have a look at them for myself.
I already have some Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill coming my way so I didn't want to get things that would look similar. At least that was the plan. The plan was to get Emerville and perhaps a darker shadow. That's all.
Oops! As you can see, I got a little crazy. I blame it on the store lights, they made the swatches shimmer and shine. I think perhaps I was blinded by the lights and my brain did a shut down and went on auto buy mode.
As you can see, I went home with 4 pots instead of 2. Now for a little self-redemption. Tangs Orchard is having a three day beauty promotion. Every $100 you spend gets you a $10 beauty hall voucher. Illusion D'Ombres go for SGD$52. I scored myself $20 in vouchers which I promptly spent all on Guerlain Rouge Aromatique lipsticks. He! He! Rouge Aromatique lipsticks go for SGD$50.
My spirits were somewhat dampened at the Guerlain counter. The SA was determined to show my other lipsticks other that the Rouge Aromatiques until I specifically told her I wanted to try the RAs. It spoils my lipstick shopping expedition when I don't see names, instead I see numbers on lipsticks. It confuses the bimbo in me. Anyway, I wanted Champ Elysees 165 but it was out of stock. I still want Champ Elysees, it will be mine eventually, Mwah haha!
I will leave you with these pictures to tease you. I'm feeling "evil" today. Swatches and detailed pictures in the near future.
