Sunday Stash Shopping #89: Super Lemmings

Yes these are super lemmings. The products I’ve been chasing high and low, because I WANT THEM! Products that are hard to get because they’re sold out all the time, but after much hunting and sourcing, I finally got them. They are the Chanel eye quad Candeur et Experience and Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Oxblood. Pretty much colours that make me swoon! Truth be told, after so many years of blogging, and after feeling ‘meh’ with a lot of new launches, I’m surprised there are still makeup out there that makes me go stupid. I guess I still am a beauty junkie at heart.

 

 

No swatches, since I’m very sure you’ve seen this palette last year. They were everywhere! And here’s a look I created using both these products. The red in the eye palette is actually lighter than I expected. It looks better when layered on top of one of the browns. And the browns here also lean red. Matte and beautiful, but not everyone’s cup of tea. Because, red eye shadows scare people.

 

 

But see? It’s not so intimidating when worn right? Just chocolates and browns with hints of red. Not bright red shadow – which in my opinion, can look so beautiful and editorial. No, not for groceries πŸ™‚

 

 

I’ve been wearing a lot of the lighter brown on the top right corner, because it’s just an easy natural warm crease shade. In short, I’m happy to say I’m getting good use out of these super lemmings. Not just sitting prettily in one corner, collecting dust.

Have a good weekend everyone!

  • Beautiful, Lily! So your heart wanted the right things. πŸ˜€
    The Chanel quad now in the permanent collection, which I’m very happy about. The colors are not something I feel easy about, but like you I’ve wanted it ever since it came out. Oxblood is a beautiful classic shade, too. I still have it in the gloss formula.

      Thanks Lena. I have Oxblood in their Full Kisses and it’s a little too shiny/balmy for my liking. This liquid velvet is perfect. I’d get their lip velvet if not for the scent so liquid it is.

  • Just when you think you’ve seen it all eh??? I’m right there with you Lily!

      lol I’ve seen a lot and I thought I’m over it but ah, I’m a junkie after all!

  • Woo hoo!!! I’m so happy for you that you finally got hold of your super lemmings!! They look super pretty on you too!! I am not a fan of the burberry lip velvet formula unfortunately, but otherwise oxblood looks great on you!

      Thanks Linda. I was so happy when I finally got them! I remember you not liking the liquid lip velvet formula. Oxblood though. Gorgeous!

  • Red eyshadow sure scares me… but you pull it off so beautifully! The whole look is gorgeous on you. Are you wearing the oxblood too? It goes so well with the eyeshadow. xx

  • Ooooo! The quad looks amazing but yes, the red would have scare me silly! LOL! It looks very pretty on you and I still need to get OxBlood!
