My favorites from……Chanel

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

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

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.

Blushes L-R: Candy, Rose Ecrin, Frivole

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.

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!
