This is a brief post to show you what is inside the Chanel Fall 2011 box that I’ll be reviewing over the coming days. This is every single piece of the Fall 2011 collection:
Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows
Le Crayon Yeux in Khaki Platine
Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Écrin
Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Palette in Prélude
Lèvres Scintillantes (Glossimer) in Pampille, Braise and Giggle
Crayon Lèvres lip pencils in Rose Cuivré and Coralline
Rouge Coco lipstick in Plumetis and Étole
Rouge Double Intensite in Rose Morganite and Rose Quartz
Le Vernis nail polish in Graphite, Peridot and Quartz
Double Perfection Compact Foundation in Medium Beige-Contour
Some of you may recall that I had experienced problems with Chanel.com with my Spring 2011 online order (briefly described here). During my discussions with Chanel customer service, the company offered to send to me an entire collection for that experience. I was very pleasantly greeted with this shipment as part of the resolution of that issue (in addition to the Gardenia Eau de Toilette referred in the linked post). Of course, this offer was more than generous on their part. Chanel has earned my utmost respect for first-class service. Despite my schedule, I feel as though sharing pictures of these items is the right thing for Cafe Makeup to do.
I’m going to start reviewing the Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow products first, as there has been so much discussion about them. In the meantime, please take a look at The Beauty Look Book’s coverage (here and here) to get Sabrina’s analysis.
