BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING - NOTHING BUT MAKEUP

I was downtown for meetings yesterday and a group of us decided to pop into Holt's to check out the Black Friday sales. Unfortunately, the sales in Canada are nothing compared to the sales in the US. There were five of us shopping and despite having the best of intentions (we all really wanted to buy something), Amanda and I were the only ones who left with anything (makeup, of course) and it wasn't on sale. Buying makeup is always a perfect pick-me-up and I'm very excited about these new purchases. Here's a peak at what we picked up. 
After seeing this Lisa Eldridge video featuring the CHANEL Limited Edition Ombres Matelassees Eyeshadow Palette in Charming, I had to pick it up. It's from the newest Holiday collection and is so pretty and such a great useable palette. I love the luxe look of the quilted pattern and the colours are all great basics. 

I also picked up another item from the Holiday Collection, CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Radieuse #217. It's such a pretty light pink with a hint of blue. I have a serious weakness for pretty pale pink lipsticks like this. When I tried this colour on, Jess and Amanda both said it looked great but I probably already had something similar at home... I'm nothing if not predictable! While that's true, I couldn't help myself. The colour is fantastic and I love the feel and texture of this lipstick. It's very moisturizing and glides on so smoothly. 
Amanda was on the hunt for a deep plum lipstick but ended up buying a fantastic gloss from Chanel instead. She picked up the CHANEL LĂ©vres Scintillantes Glossimer in Crushed Cherry #176. It's a new colour from Chanel and is such a deep, rich purple. It's such a modern colour and is a great alternative to red for the holidays.
