So here was my first play with the Byzance de Chanel Collection. I didn't use the Rouge Allure though as I was just going to the office and this was already a tad over the top for work as it was. Not that I care though. ;-) Work is the only place I ever go so I go as fun as I want with my makeup everyday! You only live once right?
As I mentioned in the review for the Rouge Joues Contrast I was pleased with how easy it ended up being to apply without looking clown like. I found the result to be a nice, natural looking flush. For my first look with Topkapi I used the gold in the corner of the eye, taupe on the lid, chocolate brown in the crease and the dark brown in the outer v into the crease a bit as well as to line. You can in these pictures what I meant in my review of Topkapi about being disappointed with the chocolate brown shade on my skin. In the pan and swatches it seems to have a distinct copper tone but on my lid it went quite flat. Just brown. Heck it almost looks cool brown. Anywho I still love Topkapi. Stay tuned for a second look later this week. It was raining the morning of these pics so there are no outdoor, full light pics. I had to resort to dull indoor natural light and flash.
