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…
I’ve been away from the blog lately, and been really looking forward to updating it. Today I got my hands on a real beauty, Rouge Expressioniste from YSL’s latest fall collection, Contemporary Amazon. I know, we’re over with fall and actually facing spring (I’d like to think!), but I’ve been thinking about getting Rouge Expressioniste for so long, ever since I first saw it, so I’m really happy about it today :) Here it is, together with GoldenEye (OPI, Skyfall Holiday Collection for 2012) and french manicure tips with Vertigo by Chanel on my nails. GoldenEye is really sparkly!
Mean & Green by MAC is originally from the Disney Venomous Villains Collection for fall 2010 I think, but I just got it from the counter so I guess they have it in their standard line now. I love this one! It’s a multichrome with black green, pinkish gold purple metallic. Impossible to catch on camera, but it’s so pretty, all I want to do is look at my nails. It’s quite sheer and took three coats for full opacity. I think it will look really beautiful with one coat over red polish, to show off that black shimmer.
WOW! This green and gold metallic duochrome polish is absolutely amazing. It’s really eye catching and I got many compliments for it. Péridot is from Chanels Autumn 2011 collection. My sweet husband got this beauty for me :D
It’s impossible to catch the beauty on camera, here are some shots in different lights. The flash seems to fade the green, but IRL you can always see the green no matter what light you’re in.
Indoors, with flash.
Terracotta Dust is a pinkish terracotta red polish with golden shimmer. Colorful, yet quite discreet I think. KICKS is a makeup store chain in Sweden, Norway and Finland. They have a lot of different brands, and recently they’ve come up with their own, called KICKS Make Up – only nail polish and lipgloss so far, but I’ve heard they’re soon introducing eye shadows and more. Excited! ’cause I really like their polishes; easy working brush and formula, and at a reasonable price.
