There’s snow on the ground here in Northern Nevada but this Chanel Spring 2009 Makeup Collection is warming my soul.
In this collection I’m most excited about the limited edition LÃˆVRES SIGNÃ‰ES CHANEL lip palette. It has five lush satin lip creme shades, from pale pink to deep plum, forming the legendary double C signature in a black lacquered case. Complete with a rich velvet pouch and brush applicator, the compact is the epitome of glamour:
I’m also super excited about the dark violet nail color called Vendetta (can you feel the hostility?). I can already tell that Vendetta and I are going to get along very well.
Also in this collection:
LIPS: Six tempting new shades of ROUGE HYDRABASE Creme Lipstick arrive in luxurious nudes, fiery reds and opulent pinks: Rose Rebelle (pink), Euphoria (intense pink), Fiesta (apricot), Fuego (coral red), Beige Desire (beige) and Gipsy Scarlett (red). Add a translucent wash of colour with AQUALUMIÃˆRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 in Malta (copper) and Positano (beige), or a subtle shimmer with LÃˆVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer in Wild Rose (rosewood) and Beige Guitare (taupe). For rich all-day colour, opt for ROUGE DOUBLE INTENSITÃ‰ Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Alexandrite (red) and Opal Rose (pink).
EYES: CHANEL presents LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in new Mystic Eyes, an inspired palette of plum, pink, beige and bronze. Further accent eyes with metallic touches using OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Magic Night (plum shimmer) and Liberty (beige shimmer), or OMBRE D’EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta (gold). Finally, define eyes with LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Definer in Brun CuivrÃ© (brown) and magnify lashes with INIMITABLE WATERPROOF Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Waterproof in Brun (brown).
NAILS: Two new infatuations, Vendetta (dark violet) and Django (beige pink) join the LE VERNIS Nail Colour collection.
FACE: Give skin a flawless, matte finish with POUDRE UNIVERSELLE COMPACTE in Beige. Sculpt cheekbones and dÃ©colletage with JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in BRUN, a subtle brown that helps contour bone structure.
