When I recently visited the Chanel counter for my facial and to purchase my new skincare (blogged about here). I couldn't stop myself from hauling some Spring collection as well as some other items (more about that in another post). After my facial the makeup artist applied my makeup using the Spring collection (I forgot to take a picture though!) and this inspired some of my purchases.
I purchased the Limited Edition blush, a lipstick, a lip gloss and three nail polishes. I love the colours of the Spring collection, so soft, feminine and beautiful.
The blush is a pinky, coral colour. If the brush is swirled through the whole powder it is more pink. However if you keep the brush to the bottom half it is more coral.
This blush retails for $90.00AU.
Before having my make up done, I had never tried a Chanel Glossimer. I feel in love that day. I used to love glosses when I was younger but now cannot stand a sticky gloss. The Glossimer is beautiful on the lips. It provides shine and a slight colour but is non sticky. I hadn't planned on purchasing a gloss but I had to have it. I purchased the colour 161 Bagatelle. It is a bright pink with gold sparkles.
Paradis is swatched on the left and Bagatelle is on the right. You can see they are quite similar colours with Bagatelle less coral. The make up artist told me this is the combination on the models lips for the advertisment. Bagatelle is worn over Paradis to to soften the colour slightly.
Finally I purchased all three nail polishes released with the Spring collection. I love the colours that Chanel create, they can be so unique and trend setting.
- 533 April - A creamy, berry red colour.
- 535 May - A bright, bubblegum pink. I had to have this as May is my birth month.
- 539 June - A pastel peach colour. This is the only Limited Edition shade of the three. I had to have this also because it is my Nan's and Mum's birth month.
These retail for $39.00AU each.
