I know, I’ve been slacking a little bit but things will get back to normal around here soon and you’ll start hearing about products as they come out. 🙂 You know how sometimes you’re just in a funk? That’s been me for awhile now but things are starting to change.
Thanks to the wonderful Elke, founder of the Beauty Blog Network, I was able to try some of Chanel’s fall collection. You’re thinking, it’s almost winter now but I’m mentally filling this in the “better late than never” category. It’s a gorgeous collection and so let’s take a look at some of my favorite pieces that are still available.
Hands down, my most beloved pieces in this collection are the eyeshadow quads Garden Party and Sequoia. Both these quads are still available at Nordstroms so snap them up while you can. Sequoia is more of an everyday color palette for me with peach, brown and beige but Garden Party is fun to play with, with it’s pinks and greens. And as expected, these shadows are soft, rich in pigment and blend well.
I know Tulipe Noir was highly coveted this year, but I was more interested in Lotus Rouge. It’s a gorgeous blue red and it’s still available online. A gorgeous matching Lotus Rouge lipstick is part of this collection as well so you should snap it up. It’s online but you may want to check with your local counter as well. With a base coat, a couple coats of Lotus Rouge and a top coat, I’ve been wearing this shade for weeks at a time without chipping and loving it.
In case you’re wondering, you can still find many of the limited edition items online at Nordstrom’s including Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Jungle, Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Lotus-Catcus and Soft Pressed Powder in Azalea.
