Forgive my very sporadic blogging lately. I've been hit with two bouts of really bad colds during the past month and it has totally drained any motivation I had in blogging :(
Anyway, onwards and upwards... If you have read my previous posts, you would know that I had purchased a few items for Chanel's holiday collection. I had reviewed the main item from the collection, the Harmonie du Soir palette, and I can't wait to show you the rest!
What I have for you tonight is the IdO in Apparence, and a comparison post with an earlier released Vision.
Apparence is a sheer dirty muted gold. It blends in with my skin colour (I am super super tan right now) and gives a subtle gold highlight to my eyelids without being too IN YOUR FACE. It is very subtle (on me!) and a dead ringer for the gold/brassy colour in the Harmonie du Soir quad :)
Vision is a sparkling glitter bomb which consists solely of gold goodness. It has a clear gel base and it is IMPOSSIBLE to do a thin line (not using the supplied brush anyway), in case you were wondering/wanted this product for that purpose specifically. This one is reserved for a sheer wash of gold glitter fit for the holiday season.
I originally thought that these two could be sisters, and that if you had one, you didn't need the other. Well I was wrong. You need both if you like golds (like me!). Apparence is like the elegant, conservative older sister and Vision is the carefree party-goer who enjoys life to its fullest and attracts attention wherever she goes!
Gun to my head, I would probably choose Apparence because of its subtlety. But Vision is so so pretty. Did you read my description? Its a sparkling gold! Its very hard to ignore its beauty and I would have hated to miss out on it. (So thank you, Anthea, for encouraging me to try it!)
