So(ho) Pretty

Just like their to-die-for 2.55 bag, some Chanel items are just too beautiful to use. Case in point? The new Exclusive Creation: Soho de Chanel, £43.50 (020 7493 3836), which launches 15th October. The new range has been created in honour of Chanel's new Soho store, and features vampy, glitter polishes (Le Vernis in Stigma, £19.50, be still my beating heart) and soft mauve lip shades.

The Soho de Chanel palette IS pricey, but I find these last longer than makeup staples like mascara. Plus, its dual-usage (face highlighter/eyeshadow) means it's an on-the-go must-have. Swirl a large powder brush over the palette to sculpt and highlight noses, cheekbones and temples. For contoured eyes, sweep the beige shade across lids and up to the brow, then apply the pink shade to the lid, stopping at the crease. Finally sweep the cocoa shade along the crease of the eye (the key here is to keep the eye open as you shade in the crease) and blend with your middle finger.

I'm eagerly awaiting samples so can't comment on the pigments or formulas but you'd be hard-pressed to find a more lust-worthy palette!
