Lumières Byzantines de Chanel Eye Shadow Palette
When Chanel’s limited-edition Jade 407 nail polish shade sold out before I could get my hands on it, I came close to dropping a serious amount of money (let’s just say it was somewhere in the 3-digit range) for it on ebay. The latest covetable beauty item from the house that Coco built is this precious metals mosaic palette. Inspired by the Byzantine pieces that jeweler Robert Goossens created for Chanel in the 1950s, these 5 cream shadows contain illuminating pearlescent particles that make it the perfect summer highlighter for both eyes and cheeks. Only 1,500 were produced and just 130 made available for sale at select Chanel boutiques in the US. I’ve already heard the words “sold out,” so if you’ll excuse me I have to get back to working the phones.
$250; call 800-550-0005 for stores
