You now what, even though I mentioned in my previous post about how high the markup for Les Ombres was in Singapore, I have to eat my words because I just bought Poesie from the counters. My intention of visiting the Chanel counter was to merely swatch it against Rivoli to decide which palette to order online but damn that limited edition thing and the need to own it there and then overrode any sense I had. I ended up toting the way cute tiny Chanel paper bag and giggling guiltily as I stored it with my ever expanding stash of eye shadow palettes. The craziness must stop but not yet.....
I must say this again, I really love the newly formulated Chanel quads. The pigmentation and softness of the shadows are to die for.

Here is a simple look I did recently. I used all the shadows dry. I used the light brown shade on my lids and used the champagne beige shade as a brow highlight and blended downwards.
I used the dark brown shade close to my lash line and blended upwards.
Then finished off with my usual liner ad false lashes.
Poesie is a neutral lovers dream. All the shades go well together. This is one palette I definitely will get alot of mileage from. The formula is fantastic. I love shimmering shades. I don't worry about my eye shadows fading away through the day. Since it is limited edition, it is a great excuse to rush down and get it before it disappears.
