Chanel Fall 2011 Collection Haul

I've never been this excited about my own haul, lol. Not just because it is Chanel but because I am completely blown away with the products that I picked up. I normally don't rave about a product unless I am 100% in love with it, just so you know.
Chanel actually had quite a bit of new product to offer for fall. For the life of me, I can only afford so much and had to pick only the ones that really jumps at me. Fortunately, I only stop by Chanel very rarely and so far the Chanel products that I've tried have surpassed my expectation.

I purchased
  • Peridot nail colour ($25.00)
  • Graphite nail color ($25.00)
  • Illusion D'ombre Long-wear luminous eyeshadow - Epatant ($36.00)

Peridot is simply stunning! It's a such a difficult shade to describe. It's like a shimmery greenish/olive/gold with I wanna say a light green duochrome. This is such a unique nail polish. I have never seen anything quite like it.
Graphite is also beautiful. It's a lot more shimmery than Peridot and contains micro glitters. It's like a pewter metallic with sparkling green, gold, and silver micro glitters.
These are the most expensive nail polishes that I own and my first Chanel polishes. I think they were totally worth it. I'd trade 6 of my OPI nail polishes for these.
I had such a difficult time deciding which one to get and the sale associate told me I could swatch them on my nails if I wanted to and when I did O-M-G!! My eyes went 0_0. These nail polishes are absolutely brilliant! The application was effortless and everything I would want in a nail polish. They look so much better on my nails than in the bottle. I can't say enough good things about them. I urge you to check them out and swatch them if you have the opportunity to stop by a Chanel counter because they really look that good and pictures can never captures how truly beautiful they are. Trust me, these are not your average nail color. I know because I own a ridiculous amount of polish. Chanel makes such beautiful unique nail colors with depth and dimension that goes beyond your typical nail polish. I will probably be buying more of their nail polishes from now on, lol.

The sales associate told me that Chanel took 4 years to develop a patented formula for this cream shadow. I was so impressed when I swatched Epatant. The consistency feels like a mousse. It's HIGHLY pigmented, very metallic and shimmery. I think they had like 6 shades available but this one is the one that really stood out. It's a metallic grey with a green undertone. It also comes with an applicator brush. I would also urge you to check out this shade if you get the chance.

Needless to say my total for just these 3 products came up to 90 and some change, which was a total splurge! I know this is a lot of money to dish out on just 3 products and believe me, I was very reluctant to shed that kind of money too but the uniqueness and quality I found in them totally convinced me that they were worth it. If you can afford to splurge, definitely try out this collection. Otherwise, if you can make some sacrifice, I am sure you will love this as much as I do.
I know I've been raving like a mad woman about something I had just bought and that may not sound right to some people but quite honestly it would take a lot for a product to have such a great first impression on me. If you get a chance to see these products with your own eyes, you will understand why I speak so highly of them. Stay tuned for swatches tomorrow. I already took lots of pix.

Do you plan to stop by Chanel and check out the fall collection? What is your favorite Chanel product, if you own any? Would you ever consider purchasing from Chanel if you never did in the past?
