Due to bad "swatching" weather conditions (I have photos of the products and looks, but I need to swatch most of the items), my "End of Summer" beauty collections countdown is moving along at a snail's pace. Apparently, this week, we may have three typhoons; so, I don't foresee much improvement in the weather.

I preferred the shade selections, and the two finishes (frost and matte with sparkles), of the stylo eyeshadows from this season's Mediterranee collection than the ones from 2013's L'Ete Papillion de Chanel.

From left to right: Azulejo 117, Olivine 137, Lumiere d Ete, Amorosa 487.

I almost didn't get Azulejo 117; I'm getting up there in age, and I'm not sure how long I can sport the aqua blues. However, when I blended Azulejo out on the back of my hand, I fell for its gorgeous murky green sheen. I though is would look pretty layered over Olivine 137, a murky, medium sage green with sparse aqua blue sparkle. When applying directly from the tube, Olivine dries very quickly. So, I found the warmth from the tips of my fingers made blending a little easier.

Amorosa 487 is a muted, rosewood-brown with gold micro-shimmer. Of the four Rouge Coco Shines released in the collection, Amorosa is my favorite; I have a thing for brown lip products.

  1. Super pretty look! I love how ethereal the bluish shimmer is :)

    1. Thank you P.A. Sugandi, but the photos do the look no justice, much better in person. I really loved the combination of Azulejo and Olivine.
