I did it. I got weak and ordered Chanel’s Particulière. *puts head down in shame*
After it was sold out online I felt this lemming and that my nail polish loving friend Birgit told me that its sold out in Switzerland didn’t help much either. So I went to my local perfumery and it was sold out too. I was the 14th or more customer that asked for it in the last days.
I was ready to forget about it and move on but then.. on a morning while browsing through a german online store I saw it. It was back in stock. 😮
I had no other choice but to put it in my basket and I saw that only six were left. Pressing the submit order button never felt better. 😀
I don’t have much taupes in my collection yet but lets take a look at how Particulière looks compared to OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques, Essie’s Mink Muffs and the limited edition Chocolate Shake by Essence.
From top to bottom:
OPI – You Don’t Know Jacques, two coats
Chanel – Particulière, two coats
Essie – Mink Muffs, two coats
Essence – Chocolate Shake, two coats
You Don’t Know Jacques is darker and a little more gray that Particulière. Mink Muffs is a darker as well but also warmer than Particulière.
Essence’s Chocolate Shake (Creamylicious LE) has almost the same lightness as Particulière but its much warmer and more brown plus it contains a soft coppery shimmer.
As you can see I don’t have a dupe for Particulière yet so I don’t regret getting it. I just love taupe/mushroom shades.
Have you caved yet and bought Particulière?
Now its sold out online again here. Is it sold out in your country too?
