I know many of you have already purchased Poésie and sung its praised - for very good reason. It's a stunner.
I took photos in very late-afternoon sunshine. I swatched from upper left in the quad, moving clockwise and ending on my arm with the pink at lower left. I used a sponge-tipped applicator and swatched relatively heavily.
The shimming pink may not be unique, but it complements the rest of the shades so well, I'm in love with it too. How nice does it get?
In case you didn't see this note from a Chanel friend, the applicators that come in the quad are velour. They give a completely different look than a sponge applicator or a brush. If you do use a brush, try Chanel's #14. The quads are not frosted, but have a luminous sheen which will soften aging and camouflage lines and wrinkles on the lids. Good news for everyone over 50!
The new Chanel quads are widely available, but Poésie was distributed in very limited numbers. Call before you zoom over to your favorite Chanel counter.
