Tag: Chanel blush
Here are some of the new products which caught my attention this week, and I have chosen makeup, skincare and fragrance.
Lightweight 2-in-1 lip and cheek blush, you can create both sheer or intense effect with a matte finish. This is a LE product and the shades are: 414 Tender Rose, 410 Corail Naturel, 412 Orange Explosif, 416 Teasing Pink, 418 Rouge Captivant, 410 Burning Berry
I am loving what Lucia Pica is doing with Chanel’s makeup, so many great new products.
Jo Malone launched a collection called English Fields, and the scents are:
Primrose & Rye Cologne: “Rolling fields dotted with primroses. Swaying softly on a spring breeze. Warmed by golden corn. Brightened with mimosa. On an addictive base of rye and vanilla. Filled with sunshine. Vivid. Glowing. Addictive.”
Poppy & Barley Cologne: “Rich red poppies dancing in the wind. Violet flowers, alive
Long gone are the days when I was buying all those huge eye shadows palettes one, after another and blending 4-5 shadows together to create a look. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
This is why now I am mostly excited about the single or the duo releases. And just when I thought that I don’t want any eye shadows, Chanel are releasing these new beauties as a part of their Yeux Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection. Already available from Saks and Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom (here and here)
While I have selected the shades I will be trying out, there are many more other variants which also include yellow, blue and other more daring options.
And how cool are the looks Lucia Pica created on Kristen Stewart? Simple yet
Here is a preview of Chanel’s holiday 2014 makeup collection – Plumes Precieuses.
The star products are definitely the highlighting powder – Camelia de Plumes in Platimun (£47) and Les 5 Ombres de Chanel (£42) Oiseaux de Nuit: luminous white, soft grey lavender, intense grey, intense black, antique gold.
Other products are: Joues Contraste (£31/$45) in Caresse, shimmering peach, Illusion d’Ombre ( £25/$36) in Envol, shimming peach, Stylo Yeux Waterproof (£19/$32) Or Blanc, white gold. Mascara Inimitable Intense Essential Noir (£25).
Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.
This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.
I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.
As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade. To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.
I wanted this look to be all about
Today I want to show you my ultimate blush love. These days I hardly use any powder blushes on myself but I still love my Chanel Orchid Rose and I use it a lot.
I have quite a few blushes and I love them all but when I got this blush about 2 years ago I forgot about all of them. I’ve been using Orchid Rose every single day!
This is how it looks like in the pan
And this is how it looks like on my hand. I really like the sales assistant who is working at my local Chanel counter and he told me that if you want to try Chanel’s Joues Contraste and can get only one – you should go for Orchid Rose because it looks nice on almost all the skin tones.
