Winter has just started but I already have so many favourites this season. One inescapable makeup item, I can't stop reaching for,
is this Chanel palette.
All the hype about it... totally deserved! I love the colours, the quality, the versatility. It's quite a great palette Chanel has come up with, and so chic, as per usual.

I fell for it after seeing it in person, but didn't buy it right away. i thought, "I surely do not need another neutral palette, specially with this kind of price tag". Until one day I got a Marionnaud's gift voucher for my B-day, and bought it without hesitation. So yes, my only real impediment was my wallet.

Since then I have been reaching for this palette more than anything else, and I do have a lot of palettes, but right now I have a crush on this one. Thus its appearance in my winter favourites. I have done a look that is pretty much the way I use the palette everyday: mostly the three colours in the middle.

For this look I used:
- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion
- Ombres matelasées de Chanel Charming
- L'oréal Volume Million lashes luminizer hazel eyes
- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- MAC Pro long wear foundation NC20
- NYX Stay matte but not flat compact powder #05 soft beige
- NYX Tango with Bronzer in “When Leopard gets a tan”
- Covergirl lipperfection Jumbo gloss balm #225

Is this my all-times-most-loved palette? Well, no. I consider this palette a high end version of an ultra versatile, super handy neutral resource. It has a solution for many looks in the neutral department, making it the best candidate of my stash for travelling. But for being my all time favourite one needs a little more sparkle and variety.
If you're interested in seeing the swatches, you'll find great ones at Christine's, Sara's or Sunny's blogs.

Have a fantastic weekend!
