Was doing my usual cosmetic-counter surfing at Lifestyle one weekend when I spotted the summer collection from Chanel. I had seen this on blogs and blogs from the entire universe but just had to go peek at it in person..am a serious addict here! Proud to say my debit card came away unhurt from it...okkkk..I don't think these colours would work on me either. So here are some pics and the prices on them for fellow curious cats.
Gloss (L to R): Pop, Laser, Bikini Peach.
|Pop - Sunny vibrant coral - looked more reddish to me.|
Laser - Neon pink.
Bikini Peach - Gold speckled pink. Is a very pale pink-peach.
As is typical of other Chanel versions of the same, they are not as bright as in the tube. The shade is there but definitely sheerer. I think Bikini Peach is more of what you see in the tube. The other two are very faint versions. And of course, they are as nonsticky as a gloss can get :-) Cost: Rs. 1500
Le Vernis - Chanel-speak for nail polish :-)
|(L to R)|
Nouvelle Vague - A stunning island turquoise
Riviera - A vivid pink
Mistral- Soft and natural pink
The three lipsticks: Rougle Allures all three:
Genial: Bold coral
Allure: Pink-tinged fuchsia
Darling: Natural luminous rosy peach
Cost: Rs. 1850. Rouge Allures are creamy satiny goodness you can go sheer with or layer for a deeper colour. They do have a unique click-click packaging. My thoughts on Rouge Allure here.
If you are planning on buying one, I would suggest also checking the Rouge Coco lipsticks - the new lipstick range out in Chanel. They are SUPERB, creamy, moisturizing, and all things good in a lipstick. Sigh!! Love them. Have one shade - Venise - review here.
The two jars on the right of the pic and the 4 bronzing powders. This bit is just passing in info...am totally clueless about what I am supposed to be doing with it :-)
Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzing makeup base - Rs. 2400 - The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favorite CHANEL foundation.
Soleil Tan de Chanel irridescent highlighting emulsion - Sun Kissed - Rs. 2500 - highlighting fluid that instantly gives the skin a subtle sunkissed effect.
Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Powder - packaging similar to the Chanel powder makeups..bronzer one side..a cute brush on the other side..giant mirror. 4 shades available. Cost: Rs. 2700
New Mascara Inimitable Intense:
(Image/info source: Chanel): Its inimitable high-tech brush in soft, flexible elastomer lines up ultra-fine bristles that are precisely adjusted for optimal application and cling. It delivers the ideal dose of mascara to even the smallest lashes at the corner of the eye. Cost: Rs. 1800
And now my favorite...this is not a new product. Its what I keep looking at every time I go to the counter but haven't bought it yet.
Le Crayon Yeux - precision eye definer. Shade: Khaki Dore.
Info from site: As an eyeliner, it draws a clean, precise, matt line, which emphasises and enlarges the eyes. Used on the eyelid, and smudging delicately with the very supple latex applicator, it produces a halo of soft velvety colour.
Is super creamy and soft. I just love, love, love this colour. Each eyeliner comes with a latex applicator and a sharpener.
Cost: Rs. 1250
