Chanel Fleur de Lotus Spring 2012 Collection

Hi everyone!

Here are the items I picked up from Chanel's Asia-exclusive 'Fleur de Lotus' Collection:


Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 69 Fleur de Lotus 5,300 yen ($65.37) , Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in 35 Rives 6,900 yen ($85.10), and the Illusion D’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in 87 Riviére.


Rives is a warm, neutral palette that offers an array of stunning effortless looks. The quality of these eye shadows are immaculate; they had me professing my ongoing love with Chanel to the SA at the counter. To think, I almost passed this Jem up, assuming it would be similar to some of the other Chanel Quadras I have. I'm so glad I didn't listen to myself ( I never do), because Rives is a gorgeous Quadra, and I would highly recommend it to everyone (i.e. Amy...that means you! :P).  

Color description from left to right

Les 4 Ombres in Rives: A shimmery peach-beige, a pearlized ivory white, a semi-matte dark bark brown with tiny gold shimmers, and a satin plumed mid-toned brown (my favorite shade in the quad).


The Illusion D’Ombre in Riviére was just about sold out as soon as it hit the counters. I'm lucky to have been at a Chanel counter the day it was released ( OKAY, so maybe it wasn't luck...just my obsessive-self counting down the days on my beauty calendar, to ensure my person would be first in line at the Chanel counter because I knew this piece was limited edition, and would sell out quickly :D). Riviére is a beautiful shade for Spring/Summer.


Let me say this again...I love BLUSH! This blush is pure love! It's just marvelous; a perfect shade for this season. Fleur de Lotus gives this splendorous coral-pink radiance to the cheeks. Every time I've worn Fleur de Lotus, I have been complimented on having a beautiful, radiant glow. Thank you Chanel ;)

Illusion D' Ombre in Riviere: A glimmering grayed silvery sea-foam green with a golden khaki sheen.

  6. That blush really does look beautiful. Looks like it has a light sheen to it, that makes it look really glowing on.

    1. It does have a slight sheen. Also, I like pairing Fleur de Lotus with the peachy-beige eyeshadow in the Rives quadra as a highlight. I'm wearing this pairing in the second look.
