Well this should be no surprise to ANYONE, of course I have favorites from Chanel!
eyeshadow quads from Chanel L-R: Harmonie du Soir, Delicatesse, Raffinement
With Chanel, the eyes definitely have it….these are 3 of my favorite quads, the 2 on the left being limited edition. I remember picking up harmonie du soir and just drooling over the rich cranberry and gold shades. Delicatesse was a more recent purchase-and I saw 2 other women say it was ‘too much’ when the Chanel counter person suggested it. Oh, I disagree….the mint is absolutely beautiful as an ‘accent’ color, and while these do have a frosty type finish, it’s subtle and super chic. Raffinement is a gorgeous collection of neutrals-can’t go wrong!
Illusion d’ombre shadows L-R: Emerville, Illusoire
I picked these up after attending a Chanel beauty event and after using them once or twice thought “oh no, I’ve made a mistake.” However, after reading some blogs, and watching some tutorials-I quickly became more comfortable with these long wearing cream/gel (?) type shadows….these 2 in particular look great together or alone. Unfortunately Illusoire came loose and fell out of it’s pot; it’s still “use-able” but not as easy to use as Emerville.
Chanel has a handle on blush, that’s for sure. Here are my favorites L-R: Candy, Rose Ecrin, Frivole. I love that these are mineralized and offer a soft, subtle finish, that’s buildable. Frivole was almost a return for me but I’m glad I kept it!
my poor poor Mademoiselle lipstick….
Believe it or not, I only have one favorite Chanel lipstick-and it has been through a lot, as you can see. I plan on depotting it and really need to get on that. This lipstick is the perfect everyday pink! I do have 2 other rouge coco shine lipsticks but this one holds a special place in my <3.
Chanel Glossimer in 176
Hey you don’t have to tell me this gloss looks INTENSE. That’s partially the reason I chose it. The other reason is that it’s actually a beautiful wine color that is completely wearable (and slightly vampy). I wear this when I’m feeling particularly sassy or cheeky.
And there you have it, my favorites from Chanel….do you have any Chanel must haves that I need to know about? Leave me a comment in the comments section!
