Hello my dears! I hope you've all spent a great long weekend for Easter and that you're having a fantastic week so far. I'm really exhausted because with my hubby we spent the Easter Monday assembling Ikea furniture. We got a huuuuge wardrobe for the entrance, where to put all our (my) coats, jackets, shoes, bags, etc. I tell you is huge. It's so tall it only leaves 3cm (like 1 inch) to the ceiling. We also got a two door wardrobe for the guests room and another "Alex" (I already have one for office stuff, but this one is for my nail polish!).
There is a deal going on at Ikea's and we got 200CHF credit for our next purchase (must be back around the 20th April). So we haven't picked up some shelving we are needing for the basement and for the laundry, we'll get that "for free" next time ;) Once the different rooms of our apartment will be ready I'll post some pictures to share with you!

Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow Raffinement
Ok, today I want to share with you a look I wore recently using Chanel Raffinement, the Eyeshadow quad released for Spring 2013 as part of the "Printemps précieux" collection.

For this look I used:
- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion 
- CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow 39 Raffinement
- CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof  83 Cassis
- Benefit Bad Gal Plum eye colour intensifying mascara
- Sigma brushes E55 (Eye shading), E30 (Pencil brush), E40 (Tapered blending), E70 (Medium angled shading)

Let me tell you I'm really glad to own this Quad! I absolutely love the colour range as I have the impression the shades complements my eye colour. I own 5 quads from Chanel and I can tell you this one is IMPROVED quality. The shades are so very pigmented, soft, and blendable, my eye look was done effortless in a couple of seconds! I'm so pleased with it, it has quickly become one of my spring favourites. I know this is quite pricey (specially in Switzerland, it retails 78CHF that's more than 80 USD!!! In the US you can get it for a little less than 60USD) but we know luxury products are expensive and in this case I feel it totally worth the money.

What do you think of the shades? would you wear this plum-ish shades for spring? do you prefer bold colours? Let me know your thoughts!
