Chanel Starlet, a bronzy peachy salmon pink with golden shimmers. I also think there is a tad of brick red in it. Starlet is part of the Avant Première de Chanel Collection for Spring/Summer 2013. This will look gorgeous once I get a tan… (Ignore the broken pinky nail…)


Spring Greens

Poudre Signée de Chanel and Frivole


, , , , , ,

Finally I got my hands on this beauty – Poudre Signée de Chanel from the Printemps Précieux de Chanel Collection. It’s a warm golden shimmering powder that I use as a highlighter over the cheekbones and under the eyebrows. Hadn’t planned it, but when the sales person at the Chanel counter told me it was the last one, I made a hasty decision to also get the peachy blush Frivole from the spring collection. Chanel makeup makes me really weak…

Here are the best shots I could get in some really bad lighting…

My picks from Chanel spring 2013 makeup line…oh they’re so pretty… If only my nails could grow a bit, so I can paint them. They broke pretty badly a couple of weeks ago, and I don’t want to waste my pretty polishes on ugly looking crooked nails… Fracas, L’éclatante and Rubellite seem to be a perfect match.

Is it Spring Yet?


, , , , , , ,

So ready for spring now! A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, to make the spring arrive. Here are some of my picks for the upcoming season. Never tried Guerlain Météorites before, the pearl shaped powder balls in different colours. Is there a better time than gloomy February to try them out? Fortunately, Guerlain releases a new version of them, called Météorites Perles du Paradis, for their spring look. Estée Lauder released the Heavy Petals Collection, with five pastel nail lacquers for spring 2013. I went for the dusty baby blue Dilettante and the avocado slash lime green Absinthe. My sweet hubby got me Tutu, a milky pink lacquer from the Cherie Bow Makeup Collection for spring 2013 by Dior. Can you feel the spring? :)
