Chanel Spring 2011- part deux

Before the year ends (over in New York).....Here are swatches for the eyeshadow palettes along with pics for the nail polishes and a few lip products.

The Ombres Perlees de Chanel eyeshadow palette is so pretty, I almost didn't want to take the swatches off my hand. Each color has a gorgeous shimmer to them.

The colors are light white gold, warm pink, dark plum with pink shimmer, mossy green with multi colored shimmer and dark grey with multi colored shimmer. Pigmentation start off sheer but can be built up nicely.

The Regards Pearle quad is not the most exciting quad and I almost passed on it; but it is a nice neutral set for spring. The colors are a shimmery black green, a golden peach, a rosy pink and a golden white.

(Without flash)

For lips, I decided to go with the Rouge Coco in Peregrina (light pink coral), the Rouge Allure in Coquette (red coral (a bit like Mac Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick)), lip gloss in Nakkar (golden red) and the Rouge Double Intensite in Cristal Rose (shimmery beige).

Top: Peregina; Bottom: Coquette

Top: Cristal Rose; Bottom: Nakkar

L->R: Peregrina, Coquette, Nakkar, Cristal Rose

Last but not least, here are the polishes from this collection. I thought I would be more in love with Black Pearl, but it really didn't wow me for some reason. I realized I didn't have a lot of white polishes/lighter colors so I decided Pearl Drop and Peche Nacree would be nice additions.

Hope everyone has/had a great new year!

Sephora x Hello Kitty Product pics

Sorry to interrupt the Chanel postings, but I need to re-do the swatches for the Regard Pearle quad anyway so I thought I would share some pics of things from the Sephora x Hello Kitty collection. I had taken advantage of the preview sale over the weekend on for the Hello Kitty collection and to my surprise, an order arrived today! I have another order on it's way, since a few items got re-stocked on Sunday; but for now, please see below for pics of the brush set, eye/lip palette in Super Fun, the Charmmy Kohl Eyeliner kit, some shadow sticks, Pen Pal eyeliner and BigSmile Gloss in Cheery. I haven't tested any products out yet but so far the packaging is really nice ^^

Super fun palette-eye shadows (top tier)

Super fun palette- lip colors (bottom tier)

Hello Kitty brush set was smaller than I expected but still cute. It's a shiny plastic but not the finger print magnet type. The white cup that the brushes are in can be removed.

Brushes are travel sized. I'm doubting how effective they will be but we'll see.

Hope you liked the pics!

Chanel Spring 2011-Eyeshadow product pics

When I saw pics of the Chanel 2011 spring make up collection. I knew I had to have the Ombres Perlees de Chanel eyeshadow palette. It was the stand out item from the promo pics. I found the collection out at one of the Chanel boutiques and I couldn't resist bringing it home. I almost didn't pay attention to the Regard Pearle eyeshadow quad that was also released but I gave the tester a try and was wooed as well by the colors. I'm fighting a cold so I haven't done swatches yet but here are a few pics of the palettes.

I'm getting use to a new camera and adjusting settings.

Regard Perle eyeshadow quad

The Regard Perle reminded me of the Murano quad. So, in case anyone else was curious; here are the 2 palettes side-by-side. Murano on the left and Regard Perle on the right.

Swatches tk along with a few other products :)
