Chanel Topkapi Eyeshadow Quad, Make-up (FOTD)

Posted on July 25, 2011

My Freschetta pizza addiction is not going to get any weaker: now I am starting my day with it, having it for breakfast. Well, it’s not the worst and unhealthiest eating decision I’ve ever made.. I think, my worst breakfast was composed from some meat pie and Cola. Eww.

Last week I received my precious Topkapi palette from Chanel collection Byzance de Chanel. Although that was my love from the first sight, I doubted for quite a while whether to buy it or not: the colors seemed not to be unique and the price seemed to be too high. But I did not own any of these colors and, as you can see, I got it, and I do not regret – the palette is beautiful.

I am not going to review it with swatches and blablabla, there are already enough wonerful and emotional reviews of Topkapi in the Internet.

I will show Chanel Topkapi “in action” on my average, european-looking pale (green) face. I have always been kind of reluctant to use dark eye shadows, because they look too heavy on me no matter how carefully I apply them.  In Topkapi case, it might be the shimmer, it can be the formula, but  I finally do not resemble a silent movie actress.

Please don’t pay much attention to my goofy face on the second picture…. This is what I used:

1) Clinique Loose Powder

2) Stila Perfecting Concealer

3) Benefit Oo-La-Lift undereye highlighter

4) Nars Cactus Flower Cream Blush (a no-no.. Gets into every pore, goes on unevenly, packs on too much noticeable glitter. I used it here only because I just needed a brighter color.)

5) Chanel Topkapi Quad (the darkest shade works great as a liner!)

6) Clinique High Impact Mascara

7) Victoria’s Secret Lipstick, shade Be Mine applied with a finger.

This is it, I hope this post was entertaining and useful to you somehow. Thank you for reading, I will be back tomorrow with the results of yesterday’s shopping (or maybe another lipstick from my collection).
