Shopping my stash │ Fall Colours with Candeur et Experience


Happy Friday, my lovelies!
The time passes so quickly. Today is the last day of the Autumn school break and children are excited because we will go to the Cinema again. This time we'll go watch Cars 3 and the kids are beyond excited. October is slowly fading, we had beautiful sunny days lately, but today is a typical Autumn day weather wise, with grey sky and chilly breeze. So are the colours of my makeup, typically Automnal!

This month I've been playing with Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow #268 Candeur et expérience, which I haven't reached for in a while, but I must say this palette colours scream "Fall" so I had to include it in this challenge. Check out one of the looks I've created with it :)


Last Spring I cleaned up a bit my makeup collection and ditched lots of stuff that smelled weird, were filthy or broken. I came to the realisation the I had a lot of items (especially high-end stuff) barely used, or NEVER used, still in their original packaging!! Especially the high-end eyeshadow quads and quints: Here take a look!
I know... Those items were needing LOVE a.s.a.p.

I decided to start this new series of posts here on the blog that would allow me to commit to "Shopping my stash", which means going through products I own instead of buying new ones. I have decided that each month I would pick an eyeshadow quad or quint from my collection and use it during the whole month. The month of October I've been playing with Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow #268 Candeur et Expérience and today I share with you one of the looks I came up with.


Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow #268 Candeur et Expérience


Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow #268 Candeur et expérience was launched last year for Fall and it is now part of the permanent range. It is the epitome of the warm transition shades. I think it is a perfect companion for any other palette with a pop of colour, but it can be used on its own too for a soft matte warm everyday look. Unlike most Chanel quads, these shadows are not baked, they are pressed powder, very smooth, buttery and pigmented. The four shades are matte and three of them are a variation of tan, which allows for a great soft gradient but not for versatility. I got it with the purpose to use it as a "companion palette" to create transitions for palettes that don't have transitions shades, but, honestly, I have only used it on itself and I'm very happy with it!

This palette was featured in a blogpost where I also show you my first look created with it here. I haven't used it in a very long time and I thought the  comination of warm brown and tan with red would make a perfect Fall look. 

I have used only this palette for most of the month of October (except for the looks I had to do for reviews and challenges here in the blog or Instagram). There is one particular look that I loved so I recreated it to share it with you.

I have loved using this palette again, it's definitely super easy to use everyday, and even a wash of colour is enough to make it work. This is my favourite look, using a gradient of the four colours on the crease, very matte and a little smokey but great to be worn every day.

What about you? Is there any piece of makeup in your beauty case that is not getting enough love? Let me know in the comments!

Love,
