Les Perles de Chanel Makeup Collection for Spring 2011

This time makeup collection by Chanel was inspired by pearls and we all know how much Mademoiselle Chanel loved pearls. Peter Philips wanted to create a beautiful collection which would reflect the iridescent refections of pearls.

Beautiful pearls

Collection includes new format of eye shadows – quints Ombres Perlees De Chanel

“CHANEL has created a tailor-made case to hold all of this magic. The classic black case becomes rectangular to contain five iridescent shades captured in a rich cream texture that glides smoothly over the skin. Blanc perlé, Rose porcelaine, Violine clair, Gris vert and Gris noir scintillant offer a bewitching odyssey with each sumptuous and capricious colour. The exquisitely fresh eye shadows are applied easily with the double-tipped foam applicator or fingertips. They can even stray from the eyelids to enliven cheekbones with a touch of shine.”

Chanel Fragrance Wardrobe

If you a fan of Chanel perfumes you should know that there are a lot of gift sets available. I am not a huge fan of Chanel perfumes because they are very popular and a lot of women use them and I don’t like to meet women with the same perfumes as mine almost everywhere.

My favourite perfume right now is  this one by Balenciaga and it’s the best one I’ve ever tried! When I use it in the morning I can still feel it on the next morning! Unbelievable, especially if to consider that perfumes hardly last on me.

But back to Chanel. If I could get only one perfume set from this holiday edition – I’d get this one: Chanel Fragrance Wardrobe

Five demi parfums—N°5, Coco Mademoiselle, Coco, N°19 and Allure—in a deluxe gift box, $110 in the US.


Chanel Makeup Sets for Holiday 2010

Besides the Les Tentations de Chanel holiday collection there will be also several gift sets which I highly recommend if you are a fan of Chanel. Last holiday I got only 1 set and I regret that I didn’t get more. So here are the sets:

GLOSSIMER DUO SET, $51

The signature LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer set returns with the season’s perfect lipgloss pairing: full sizes of ultra-flattering rose-toned shades in exclusive Muscat and best-selling Wild Rose are combined with a mini Precision Lip Definer in Nude. A chic makeup bag makes these must-haves travel-friendly.

I got the same set but with different Glossimers last year so if you want to see how the liner and the makeup bag look like click here.

NAIL COLOUR SET, $66

An irresistible nail colour trio brings together classic and fashion-forward hues in a gift-ready presentation. Three exclusive runway-inspired shades — Rouge Noir, a black red; Gold-Lamé, a satiny gold; and Coromandel, a fiery red. All are housed in a signature carrying case.

THE INGÉNUE COLLECTION: CHEEKS – LIPS – LASHES, $95

Who is Your Favourite Model?

If you follow me on twitter you probably know that last week I’ve tweeted quite a lot about models. One of the reasons for that was this amazing post by Lisa Eldridge. It made me think who my favourite model is… I can name several that I like but I don’t have a favourite model. To tell the truth, I don’t really care that much after all. But what if I had to choose one? Ok, that would be Natasha Poly I guess! And in this post I will explain why!

I was thrilled to see her on the cover of  new Vogue Russia where she looks gorgeous!

I read so many negative feedbacks about this cover, about Natasha  and Terry Richardson (it’s quite obvious that it’s his work, sin’t it?) that I was surprised. But, whatever, I like it!

So why do I like Ms. Poly this much? Mostly because of her cheekbones (take a look at the photos and you will understand what I am talking about) and green eyes.  And she is a very sweet and beautiful girl in general.

By the way, if you wonder what makeup Natasha is wearing , it’s:
