As you all know I placed an order from the Nordstroms Anniversary Sale! I ended up only getting a few products but they are fabu! From the Anniversary Sale I only got one limited edition (UH that word) product. It is a Rouge Allure Lipstick in Desinvolte. I wasn't sure if I would like this from the swatches that were online. I thought it might be a little too dark for me. It is actually very pretty. On my skin it turns very pink. Thought it is not my typical nude pink, it is very pretty and I am happy that it found its way into my makeup bag. I used this today with Chanel Glossimer in #151 Aragonite. This is a white color with pink and blue sparkles. The combo, along with Whirl liner from MAC, was absolutely gorgeous. Here is the lipstick below, with the glossimer in all their pinkyness -
I had originally thought I ordered the Pearl Shimmer Powder from the Anniversary Sale. I guess after talking with Ondrea we decided that since I am very tan, I should go with the gold highlighter instead of the pearly white one. The next Limited Edition product that I purchased was from the Byzantine Collection. This is the Joues Contraste Powder Blush in OR. This is a gorgeous sparkly gold! I actually had this color many years ago. It was called Eldorado years ago when I purchased it. As soon as I saw this OR, I knew it had to be mine. I know you are thinking, why don't I just reach into my stash and pull out the Eldorado but unfortunately, that has gone to Chanel heaven, the place where I hope to go one day! I used the OR today on my cheeks and thought it gave a slight gold shimmer. I read that makeup genius, Peter Philips, the Creative Director for Chanel, used this on the runway. He wet a shadow brush and swirled it into the powder and placed it all around the eye as a liner. This gave a wonderful 24k gold effect. I will definitely be giving this a try. Here is the powder below in all its shimmeryness-
I will be taking a short break from blogging because, I am going to NYC to visit my sister! I am so excited because I LOVE NEW YORK! Though my sister made it clear that this trip is NOT for shopping, I will hit up the local Sephora while I am there. I am interested in some Illamasqua products. Also Chelsea Market is the home of Inglot cosmetics so I might have to hit them up. Oh and there is a Fresh store on Broadway with that nice girl Jessica, oh and there is the Nars Boutique that just opened up, oh and there are the Chanel and Dior Boutiques. OH MY.... sister is going to be mad!!! So much for not shopping!
In the case of purchasing even more Chanel makeup - The case is now and forever OPEN, until I go to Chanel Heaven that is!
