Chanel Spring 2010 (Les Perles De Chanel) - a Tiny Haul


Bought only two products from the Chanel Spring 2010 collection that was launched this week in Bangalore.  Having seen the swatches/products on so many blogs, I was not really very impressed with this collection, but it's Chanel, and it's me, so I did land up at the counter to take a peek.  I was thankfully unimpressed by the eye shadows, and the lipsticks were just too pink for me, but here's what I did buy.

  12. Is nakkar reddish kinda gloss or pinkish?

    ReplyDelete
  13. ok, here is a stupid silly question.... i know that when it comes to luxuary brands you pay for the brand as well, but how different is the quality compared to some good drugstore brands? i am looking to build my collection now thanks to you girls and wanna know where to splurge and where not to...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Pinkish..is the exact colour that's seen in the second pic..the close-up..but not a flat/straight whatever pink..me hopeless at descriptions maybe you can help

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anks it's the quality and the ingredients that differ. But more than anything else it is pure luxury. It's a feel good factor. Honestly I love it everytme I use chanel or Dior and no matter how much I love my Lakme Lip Love lipstick that "awesomeness" factor is missing.

    The products are good as well. you'll not find chanel glosses to be gooey or sticky , which a lot of drugstore brands would have.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Anks - I have not used a lot of makeup to give an accurate comparison, but there is a lot of difference in the quality also. At least with Chanel, their glosses are amazing - so smooth and almost nonsticky. Blushes I cannot say, I have only used these and the tomato blush..two different products, both of which I LOVE. Not all products in all high-end brands are good, though. There are mega-flops in everything, but to a certain extent with more money you do get better quality.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think the best thing to buy from a high-end brand, though, would be foundations. Across brands like YSL, Chanel, and Lancome (the last one only tried at counter), I have seen a world of difference. Colours you can always manage with any brand, especially if you are gifted with talent at makeup, but products like foundations, a better quality does help.

  18. Err...sorry that became a lecture :| :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. My suggestion would be that if you are not planning on making a huge makeup collection , invest in brands like estee lauder, mac, chanel etc..pick up just one gloss in a month but over a period of time you'd have a beautiful collection of stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  20. anks is going to throw cans at us know. :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hahahaa..you also lectured :D but you shorter lecture :|

    ReplyDelete
  22. no not cans... see, i am super confused.... i pick up one thing and wear it everyday till i am bored of it... then it is dumped in a corner till i remember it again! so i always ended up buying drugstore stuff... and then i have these makeup kits that were gifted to me... they are almost unused coz of the sheer effort to manage them everyday... :) now i feel guilty when i splurge on glosses / shadows / blushes :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. Used to happen with me too Anks :D :D Feel so guilty leaving unused glosses/lipsticks. Now, I buy just a few items and stick to those till I finish them..which would take a long while. I don't have the problem of getting bored with it because these are such amazing quality I would never ever get bored..I thinkkkk :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. That gloss is so beautiful Rads.....and the blush................out of this world.......:)))

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  30. I got some swatches - will send you - is 3 darker colours and 2 lighter colours. The quality of the shadows is actually quite good, but I personally don't like finish or the shades. The quad (4 shadows) LOVED the green black, but the rest of the shades are just okay - nice, but I don't want those..so pass again. Plus, these two were so pretty, I just picked them, blew up any money for any purchase again for a long time and ran away :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. No today no shopping..maybe Landmark..that's it.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  69. You're so strong, Rads - for resisting. I got the Black Pearl nail polish and the Eyeshadow quint (was a gift from the bf). Are the shadows bad? Darn, now I'm a bit worried now as I haven't swatched them yet. Kept them nice and pretty in the box.

    ReplyDelete
  70. No Fieran - they are not bad at all. I just found them not suitable for my skin tones - I had similar colours in a TBS trio - the two grey-green ones - and I didn't really want the same kinds again. I really really want it - only then I buy it. The shadows seemed to be pretty good quality to me.

  72. hey rads, m soo sighing n eyeing the blushh.......getting it asap.. :)
    which chanel vials u got..i have chance by chanel n soo madly want chanel no. 5

    ReplyDelete
  73. Phew! Thanks Rads :) Now I don't feel guilty.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Fieran - Your BF gifted you the quint...he gets all the brownie points in the world :D

    Nupur - I don't like Chanel No. 5. I have the EDT..smells different from the EDP..but I don't like either. I love Chance, Allure, and Coco Mademoiselle. Guess I like most of them except Chanel No. 5 :D

    ReplyDelete
  75. @Rads: Hehe, thanks. We were on the way to get dinner for our anniversary and I stepped into the shop because the Spring stock had come in. I was standing there wondering if I should get the quint, then the bf said "I"ll get it" and next thing I know we were leaving the shop with the quint in a bag. I was really surprised because I didn't feel like buying it - couldn't justify the price. The bf is nice like that :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Heheeee..you must have been one happy grinning cat that day :D :D :D And I liked that it came with a brush instead of the usual sponge applicator..do share swatches some time after you start using it :) :)
