Chanel Eyeshadow Quad Swatches and Givenchy Eau Demoiselle Perfume

I have a couple of goodies I want to share with you all today, first I want to tell you about my gorgeous birthday goodies that my lovely boyfriend bought me (yes, him again). I was so spoilt this year, he did well! I will start with the Chanel Eyeshadow Quad, in shade 19 - Enigma. I will try and show you some swatches, but my camera is pre-historic so they probably won't look too accurate, a new camera is going to have to be my next investment.
I have only ever had one eyeshadow from Chanel, as part of a limited edition compact with lip glosses, and I actually wasn't that keen, but these are absolutely gorgeous and are exceptional quality, which you would expect for a hefty £37.00 from Debenhams. The Chanel Quadra eyeshadows, come beautifully packaged with a little velvet pouch and a booklet, with hints and tips of how to use it.
The 4 shades range from a neutral pink, to a rich, dark purple-brown. They are flecked with sparkles, so are probably more evening shades than daywear. I will probably use the pink as a daily essential though, as it is just so beautiful.

Next, from my gorgeous little baby daughter, I was given a Givenchy Eau Demoiselle perfume gift set which I love. Not my usual kind of fragrance, as it is so fresh and floral, I am more of a dark, warm and spicy fragrance fan, or I use my fail safe favourite, which is Chanel Coco Madamoiselle. Eau Demoiselle is an ideal summer fragrance, starting out with a fresh petal burst on first spray, and then softening to a musky dry down. I got a handful of samples as well - the best one was a mini bottle of Miss Dior Cherie, so cute!

Love Edie xx
