Chanel Mimosa

Monday, 23 May, 2011

Chanel Mimosa is sold out and is part of their Summer 2011 Collection. I went to my Chanel counter and they had it! Woo hoo. It was meant to be. One of three colors for Chanel’s Flowers of Summer (Les Fleurs d’été), Mimosa is a shade I’m somewhat happy I chose.

Chanel Riva vs Revlon Blue Lagoon

Thursday, 19 May, 2011

I saw Blue Lagoon at my Walgreens and went, “Ohh…I can do a comparison to Riva!” and they have some shocking similarities. They’re both shockingly shitty with application. There I said it. I blasphemed the La Maison de Chanel. Revlon – eh. Like they care.

Despite the craptastic application, they’re both pretty colors.

Come and see…

Revlon – Perplex

Thursday, 7 April, 2011

I am Perplexed that I was not able to find this color sooner.

I got a call from a BFF going, “What is that color you were looking for from Revlon? Is it called Perplex?”

Me: “OMG…YES! WHERE ARE YOU?”

BFF: “I’m at Big Lots. They have three left and…”

Me: “GET THEM ALL. DO YOU HEAR ME? GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! ALL OF THEM! I LOVE THAT COLOR. WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF I WILL LOVE THAT COLOR, BUT I WANT THEM ALL ANYWAY!”

BFF: “Ok. Stop yelling in my ear. They’re a dollar each.”

Me: *faints*

I got the package 2 days later. Yay for NAIL MAIL!! Thank you, Karen! Thank you, thank you!!!

Chanel’s Black Satin vs Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Iconoclast

Tuesday, 22 March, 2011

I had to do a comparison. Can you blame me?

When I put on Iconoclast, I had flashbacks of Black Satin nightmares. You know what I’m talking about – people selling bottles of this on eBay for exorbitant prices. Little did you know that waiting a few years down the line would yield a version of it with better shimmer and a better formula. Sometimes it pays to wait.

Come on over and see what I’m blabbing about today…The sun came out and is still out, so I’m going to make this brief because I want to get some swatching in before the rain starts in again!

Chanel Tulipe Noire

This shade of red is gorgeous. I love it. I dislike shimmers and anything that gets in the way of a gorgeous creme polish. However, this shade won me over.

Chanel – Particulière

Tuesday, 25 January, 2011

I had waited for this color, but one of my BFFs from college totally pulled through for me last year and purchased this in Paris for me…and through a series of foiled plans to get together, I finally got my grubby little paws on this bottle back in December.

The weather hadn’t been playing nice, but one day it did…and here is what I have for you.

Formula was fantastic – quick drying. I love cremes and this is no exception. No boo boo shimmer to mess this color up.

This color does not fail on delivery. I was truly surprised at how gorgeous this really was. I wore it for a few days and just marveled at the beauty. Marveled at how fabulous it looked on me. *weeps* If you can, run out and get this color because this is one of those Chanels that you will love to have in your collection ten years from now. That and Paradoxal. 😉 I love Paradoxal…must get another bottle of it. I gave my back-up away, but no regrets because it went to a wonderful person!

Chanel – Brown Sugar

Thursday, 6 January, 2011
Chanel Brown Sugar

Is a polish from 1994-1995 considered old school? In my head it is, but it may not be so for others. Anyway, enough with the debate over semantics. Let’s look at my treasure.

I know I’ve gone on and on about Chanel’s Brown Sugar. I did a search for Brown Sugar in my blog and I found three instances of where it’s mentioned. I know I’d have mentioned it a lot more but editing saved you from having to read about it everyday. Now friends of mine, on the other hand. I’ve more than bent their ears on it. Frankly, I think I think I abused them. LOL.

I’ll dig up Violette and let you look at them to see. I will eventually do a side by side comparison, but for now here is my one true nail polish love.
